Fall Market 09: We've arrived! and Sample Spree Giveaway... - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Fall Market 09: We’ve arrived! and Sample Spree Giveaway…

** Thanks for entering! This giveaway is now CLOSED!! **

We’re here!! After a long, arduous…3 hours in the car (yes, that is very tongue-in-cheek, and kudos to all you certain folks who drove halfway across the country in your cargo vans) we have arrived here at the Fall 2009 International Quilt Festival in Houston! What happened tonight? Fabric 2.0 Lite, hosted by J. Caroline, and Sample Spree! (Snagged some goodies for a giveaway — keep reading!)

We arrived late afternoon, so didn’t get to do any Schoolhouse 🙁 But the Fabric 2.0 event was fun…met some Twitter peeps and other shops, including the host Caroline (who is soooo friendly & fun)!

 Then headed over to Sample Spree, where we bought a little bit of this, a little bit of that…

I don’t have a picture, but Debbie was so wild about her Allie sample that she bought from Bunny Hill Designs!

Some pretty quilts caught our attention…this is from the Me to You table, and uses some Flower Sugar <3
Saw some familiar faces 🙂

Now how cute is that? Melly & Me, with their Hooty and Tweet softies!
So nice to put faces to names! Met Vickie, Julie & Rachel
Reminder to self: restock on these Carolina Patchwork patterns, they’re fantastic…
More yummy fabric at Red Rooster’s table

Ran into the French General — Kaari Meng! Her new line Rural Jardin is…sigh! Still waiting for Rouenneries yardage to drop!! Hurry hurry, Moda!
Stopped to admire this Meet Me in the Meadow display at Jillily’s table…
SAMPLER BOXES! Moda Bake Shop’s newest!!
And the Moda chaos only beginning…
Ain’t Sample Spree a beautiful thing?

We smuggled some of these beauties back to our room…Moda’s newest Bake Shop addition, the Sampler box!! Aren’t they smart?? I’m using way too many punctuation marks in this paragraph, but we love them so much…we hope you do too!

The Moda Bake Shop Sampler box comes stocked with 12 packs of 40 – 2 1/2″ squares. Each pack is a new Moda release…hence you get to sample a little bit of 12 lines. SWEET! It also includes projects & templates for charm quilts, as well as the history of charm quilts. The groups for this season’s box include Bar Harbor, Butterfly Garden, Collection for a Cause: Charity, Eden, Frolic, Garden Party, Lakeside Resort, Looking Back, Martinique, Spring Fever, Verna and Whimsy. AND, this box is available in November, so you get to sample the fabric waaaay before the line even comes out in Feb/Mar 2010! I think it makes a perfect gift, just in time for the holidaaaaays…

So here’s how you can help us…we have just added the Moda Bake Shop Sampler Box to our store’s Coming Soon page. If you wish to be notified when the Sampler box arrives in our store, let us know via Kimberly’s e-mail address in the pink paragraph below the Sampler box, so we can get a good idea of how many to order at our Moda meeting! That way we can have enough for all!

Help us, help you! 😉

Yeah and of course…the giveaway! So what have you heard about in Twitterverse and Blogland about Market? Who would you like us to visit and paparazzi? Comment on this post (gets you 1 entry) and or send us a tweet (for another entry) to let us know, and 5 winners will receive these super sweet Sampler boxes! We’ll announce the winner next week!

For now good night…tweet & talk more tomorrow 😀


  1. I would like to know who the 3 sisters are that design for Moda? I thought found there website once but it looked pretty non-descript for the fab fabrics that they design… are they that illusive?

  2. I love the sampler box! I love getting your updates on twitter and I am so jealous that you are surrounded by all those yummy fabrics!

  3. Lots and lots of booth pictures of Minick & Simpson, Bunny Hill, Little Acorn, French General, anything Robyn Pandolph … heck, you know the ones I like! Oh, and pictures of quilts with applique and piecing like the Sugar Flower and Jilly ones you have here. 🙂 Mostly you all have a ton of fun!

  11. The sampler box is adorable! It looks like a lovely chocolate box.

  28. Those samplers are fabulous – certainly a great idea! Let's see, oh so much to find out- but perhaps it would be great fun to see the Michael Miller folks or Lecien to see what they've all been up to recently!

  57. That sampler box from Moda is such a smart idea!
    Have fun at Market. I'm enjoying seeing it all so keep the blog posts coming!

  58. Thanks so much for this wonderful market post! The sampler box is wonderful…I'll definitely be heading over to your site to e-mail for it! Now, from all I've heard in blogs and Twitter…I'm thinking Kaari Meng's new line "Rural Jardin" is the one I most want to see right now!

    Bari B

  61. Thanks for sharing market with us – so fun to see all the inner working of the fabric world. Would love to catch a sneak peek at some of the new line and patterns coming down the pipe, so anything you can share would be great! Love the sampler box, too!

  62. I'm following your tweets from market. I hope you show photos of the new French General line and also new quilt designs by Minick & Simpson. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  63. How cute is that sampler box?!

    I'm loving all the quilt market pictures! I really want to see the booths and their smiling proud desingers, especially Fig Tree Quilts, Patty Young's and BariJ's!

  64. Ooooooh I want a sampler box!!

    And I would love to see my friend Rob Appell–he's at market with Michael Miller, selling his realistic wildlife quilt patterns.

  65. Naturally, I want to see everything! Always love Fig Tree, Three Sisters,Miss Rosie and everything Schnibbles…oh heck, just everything. Thanks for all the pictures. Keep them coming.

  66. How neat to see a picture of Rachel, whose blog ( PS I quilt) I follow., thank you for posting pictures of people and fabrics. Sandy Gervais is someone I am interested in knowing more about.

  67. I don't tweet and I am on vacation! Just had to check in on QM news. I would love to see what is coming over at Michael Miller, get some pics of Sandi with her newest line – Meadowsweet.

  68. I would like you to look at: Stitchery from Lynette Anderson- Annie Downs and Red Brolly. Sprout design -Melly and me – Sandy Klop -Michelle Engel Bencsko

    Have fun

  69. If you could just get a booth pic of every booth at market that would be fab. =) Just kiddin' of course–but, seriously, the booth pics are my favorites–I'd love to know if there is any new Lecien cuteness coming & I'd love a pic of Heather Bailey's booth–can't wait for Nicey Jane!

  70. Please take a lots of pictures of "Rural Jardin" by French General. Moda's Sampler Box is great idea! I can hang on the wall and count how many days to buy those beautiful fabrics.

  71. The other members of the Jolly Jabber INEEDTOKNOWRIGHTNOW Club kicked me out last night for falling asleep. They said some nonsense about me snoring while I was waiting for you to finish your market post.

    I love your post, I love your pics. Love. Love. Love your market posts!

    PS… Now I have exclamationitis – which I caught from you. I mean… which I caught from you!!!

  72. You should have warned us first – there is some serious drooling going on here! I just love the idea of those Sampler Boxes and I would be in heaven with Jillily's yellow and white quilt. And as for that table stacked with packs of fat quarters at what, to me in the UK, are such amazingly good prices – I am so envious! May the rest of Market be even better – if that's possible!

  73. I wish that I was as creative as Moda. Hats off to their marketing group! Oh yeah, I would love a sampler box.

    Happy Market!

  74. My mouth is watering and my fingers are itching! Can't wait to get my hands on some of these beautiful lines and patterns. Wonder what kind of cool project we could come up with for the sampler boxes? Ideas?
    Rain Vincent

  75. Oh you are too much fun! I feel like I'm there! Great pics, so exciting to see the new lines. I would love to see some Heather Bailey or some more bloggers. So cute to see these chickies at QM!

  76. So much inspiration in one place. WOW! Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures that you took. I almost feel like I'm there. Wish I was, I just hate missing out on all the fun.

    I really love the concept of the sampler box. How fun to have a small bit of 12 fabric lines all in one box. I don't think I could even open it and use it. I'd probably have to buy two boxes one to use and one to look at. LOL!

  77. WOWZA! Moda have got it soooo right, those bake shop sampler boxes look truly good enough to eat. And Im starving!! xxxxxxxxx nicola

  78. Hope you're having fun at Market. I would LOVE to see what Joanna Figueroa has been up to, Minick and Simpson, Bunny Hill, Kansas Troubles too…I enjoy seeing pics of the designers in their booths and finished items for inspiration most of all. Sampler boxes are a great gift idea.

  79. Do you need for me to come and stand guard in front of all that fabric? I'll make sure that people only look and don't touch! Right! lol

  80. How about Kansas Troubles Quilters, French General and Fig Tree Quilts just to name a few. Can't go wrong with Moda. It is all so yummy! The new sampler boxes are fantastic!!

  81. Those sample boxes are brilliant! Can't wait for that one.

    I'm excited for Sandi Hendersons new line, Meadowsweet. I'd love to see what she's made with her samples and get a few early project ideas!

  82. Anything French General! Could you track down Mark Linpinski and ask him what the hooty-hoo is going on with him quitting everything?? Quilter's Home sans Mark makes no sense to me. Argh!!

  83. Let's see, Fig Tree, French General, Sandy Gervais. Actually a picture of everything would be nice. Can't wait to see all the new stuff.

  84. Would love to see what's new from Crabapplehill Studio and Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
    The sampler boxes are way better than a box of chocolates!

  85. Hello,
    It would be fun to see a close up of Bunny Hill's booth! Always enjoy your updates! Thank you for dropping my name in your basket for the drawing! 🙂

  86. I want to see it all! I want you to Paparazzi Moda, Fig Tree Quilts, Tula Pink, Sweetwater, and the list goes on, and on, and on….
    Oh, And so far I haven't heard too much in blogland. They're just now getting up and going about it. Talking about the shopping spree and such. Can't wait to hear more!

  87. The Sampler boxes are just SO wonderful – I would jut love to win. What a feast it would be to see all those fabrics up close and meet the creative people behind them… Great to see Rosalie and Melly from Australia – Anni Downs is also there I believe..love their designs. Thanks for the chance to win!

  88. I love the pics and the sampler. Will be attending next Saturday for the first time!!! I can't wait. Hope to meet you there.

  89. Your Blog is the first one I have checked out who has an update – please keep it up, just love reading all about the MARKET it is like being there. Great Good. Cathie from Oz

  90. I read your blog post first to find out about new things from Market. I would love to hear about anything from 3 Sisters. I have always loved their designs. And Moda, anything from Moda!
    Stop by Bunny Hill's booth too! Love her stuff! And Fig Tree too!
    Oh goodness! I wish I was there to drool! I would be in heaven!

  91. I would love it, if you would hit Lynette Anderson's booth, 1527. She just came out with a new book and punch needles that I did the demos for. Would really love to see her booth.


  92. Hi, I am just speechless…how could there be so many incredible fabrics in one place? I am wondering how far is South Carolina from the Fall Market…would my husband and dog miss me if I slipped out and got on a plane…
    Please put me in the entries for the special Moda sampler box. Jan D

  93. I'm just drooling over all the wonderful treasures!! Please go say hello to Alex Veronelli at Aurifil Thread. He's such an elegant and knoweldgable gentleman!

  94. Moda always has neat new ideas. It is difficult to select…
    Sweetwater, Amy Butler fabrics, Joel Dewberry, Tula, and Three Sisters

  95. I would love to see the new Michael Miller selections and some pics from their booth. BTW, LOVE the updates on twitter about Market. Almost feel like I am there!!! The New Moda Bake Shop Sampler is YUMMY looking!!!

  96. What a clever idea to get all of the sample squares in our hands early in the season…Great for gifts, secret sister, and incorporating into quilts, runners and purses. Love it!

  97. I'm always curious to see what Joanna Figueroa is up to? Love all the pics of the yummy, yummy fabs. The pic of the soft owls was the cutest!

  98. Oh… So much better than a Box of Chocolates !!! &&& Totally Delicious… would so love to see anything Lila Tueller & Ricky Tims please…

  99. the short list would be that i need to see anything heather bailey, french general, fig tree, paula prass, sweetwater, tula pink….

  100. Where would I start – really there would be so much for this Aussie to see. I would start with Moda and then move onto Fig Tree and then Sweetwater and then some of the fellow Aussies – Hatched & Patched and Melly & me.


  101. Eyads, as another Aussie by residence, I think like Ellen Easter, I'd be standing there stunned like a deer in the headlights. Starting with Moda, and with all the fabric lines Moda has I don't know how I'd extract myself!

  102. I love the pictures of market. Bunny hill is doing a great fob with pictures too. I wish I could be there. The work involved is incredible. Thanks

  103. Oh how I wish I were there. I can't imagine being able to see, fondle (in some cases, lol) new fabric and idea, and most of all see the folks whose blogs I read. The pictures are so wonderful and almost, almost make me feel like I'm there, thanks for sharing them. AND those new Bake Shop sample boxes…***sigh*** to die for, what a wonderful idea! They would make beautiful gifts, decorations or…fit nicely into my Millenium quilt, lol. Great stuff, thanks again!

  104. Sandi Gervais, 3 Sisters and Sweetwater as they have a new design I saw on their blog. It looks great. Hope your going to get that one. The sampler box looks good. Can't wait to get one. Thanks for the competition.

  105. Would love you to visit any of our Aussie designers…..that would be so cool!!!!!
    thanks for the preview….nearly as good as being there :o(
    'o) Wendy B

  106. Thanks so much for sharing all these wonderful pictures with us. I am especially interested in Joanna's new Whimsy line and patterns. I love the retro quilts, fabrics and patterns. I also enjoy seeing the new designers.

  107. These market pictures are fantastic and what a wonderful way to wet out appetites. I was wondering what Moda would come up with next and they do not disappoint. Nancy Halvorsen and anything Benartex is my pick. Pictures please!!! Judy C in NC

  108. What a great blog, makes us feel like we are almost there. Love those sample boxes. Anxious to read more news on Quilt Market. Anything you show is great.

  109. Wow that sampler is sweet! I would like to see more of Amanda Herring at the Quilted Fish. I love her patterns!

    Thanks for sharing all the pictures. It looks like a fun time.

    Sandy A in St. Louis

  110. The pictures I saw from the market were absolutely great! Everything seems to be soooo busy and fun. Digging through miles of Patchwork and Quilting.
    Unfortunately I didn't had the chance to go as its located in a land called FarFar away! :o) (at least if you want to go from Germany!)
    BUT… in the case I would go, I would like to visit Fig Tree Quilts. I am absolutely addicted to the designs of Joanna!

    Conni from Berlin, Germany

  111. I've been quilting for about three years, ever since I made my first baby a quilt (I'm a newbie!) and I can't believe how utterly in love I am with it all! I aspire to be like all of you fabulous quilters and designers. There is so much talent out there. It would be so fun to go to quilt market and just wander around for hours! Anyway, thanks for being my favorite on-line fabric supplier and filling me with inspiration as I learn to quilt!

  112. Hi – really anxious to see the new French General line and what's new from Sweetwater – my 2 faves currently. Also look forward to Sandy Gervais offerings – always a fave.

    Thanks for all the photos and the detailed info. Love seeing all the new stuff.

  113. I too would love to see what 3 Sisters have coming up, I have loved everything they have out so far so I need to feed my addiction. The sampler box looks fantastic as well, throwing my name into the hat:) Looks like you are having a fanastic time, can't wait for more pics.

  114. Wonderful pictures from Market! Would love to have you visit a new designer and blog about them and would love hear from Minick and Simpson and their new line Bar Harbor. Love the sampler boxes!!!
    Laura T

  115. I would love to see Sandy Klop or Alex Anderson and maybe even Laura Wasaloski! And oh, all of the lovely Australian ladies! Love their lines and patterns.


  116. I'd love details from Bunny Hill and Rosalie Quinlan! You do a great job with your photos – someday I hope to go to Quilt Market but, for now, I follow your posts. Thanks so much!!!

  117. I'd love to see some of Amy Butler's newest. Always like to see new patterns as well – love contemporary fabrics. How about Mark Lipinski. The sampler boxes are certainly eye-candy and I have had a wonderful afternoon catching up.

  118. Wow – everything looks so fabulous!! I too love the idea of the sampler box.

    I would like to see Fig Tree and I like Country Threads too. I really enjoy seeing anything new too :o)

    Good luck!

  119. I would like to see Andover Fabrics. Their licensed children's book prints are a favorite with our family — my mother finished a Very Hungry Caterpillar Quilt last winter and I have one underway.

  120. I'm new to quilting and everything I've heard about Market has come from the Jolly Jabber blog. I should have guessed that there would be a fabric equivalent to scrapbooking's CHA. I'm intrigued by these sampler boxes, they look like they could be turned into a fun little quilt. Thanks for all the photos! It's been fun getting to travel along with you!

  121. I want to know what the next 3 Sisters line looks like and patterns for Aster Manor and Rouenerries. Plus whatever Anne Sutton is up to.

  122. I've been following your blog recently, and I didn't know much about "Market". I'm loving seeing all of the great pictures from this week though. The sampler box is really intriguing.

  123. I think the sampler boxes are a great idea. I love to use the 2 1/2 squares to whip up the vintage baby quilt for a quick gift. I would love to see the new Riley Blake line, Amy Butler, Fig Tree of course, and I love the things that Bunny Hill designs. I think that market looks like so much fun and tiring too. Just not enough money to buy all the things that you want

  124. Am I too late for the giveaway? If not, I'd love seeing what Sandi Henderson, Patty Young, Laura Gunn and Paula Prass have coming up!

  125. Wow, yours are the best posts on the quilt market displays, I felt like I was there, almost…… Everything looks wonderful, wish I was there.

  126. Thanks for providing us with a peak into market! I would love a report ond pictures on the new lines by 3 Sisters and French General. Would love to see new patterns by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie. Actually, I'm enjoying anything you post 🙂

  127. LOVING that sampler box! I would like to see it all! I wish I could be there but I can't so I have to enjoy everything through pictures. Would love to see more of Me and My Sister's booth. I love their fabric lines. So fun and girly!

  128. As many booths as you are able to visit and take pictures. I would like to see you visit Bear Thread Designs (Veronica Cox). Thanks for including me in this giveaway that I would dearly love to win.


  129. I NEED more pictures of Fig Tree Quits… I can't get enough of Joanna Figueroa's stuff. She's brilliant and amazing with color and patterns!!!!!!!!!

  130. Your photos make me wish I was there! Thank you so much for keeping me informed aobut ht ewonderful fabrics coming soon.

    What is Twitter???

  131. I would love to see more from McKenna Ryan. Her designs are delightful! I also love anything by BasicGrey.

    Wish I could be there, too!

  132. I would love to see Judy Rothermel and more civil war lines in general. Love the Sampler Box – thank you for the covereage of the show.

  133. The sampler box is such a great idea! I've really enjoyed all of the pictures you've posted so far and am always interested in seeing more Fig Tree goings-on (my favorite), and I'm also excited about Cloud 9!

  134. oh, it honestly doesn't matter–i love looking at photos of all the booths. i'm so grateful for all you bloggers who are covering Quilt Market–doubt if i'll ever get to go so this is as close as i'll get–so fun! btw, i've heard about the legendary Sample Spree for so long but for some reason, have never seen any prices–and now i know to be truly jealous 🙂 thanks again for all the great photos–you have the best job in the world!

  135. Love those sample boxes! What will Moda think of next? I'd love to see pix Anne from Bunny Hill and also PamKittyMorning if you see them around the floor!

  136. Where is Sandy Gervais?? Would love to see a picture of her booth and her new fabric line. Love the Sampler Box; leave it to Moda to come up with another clever precut. Hope I'm not too late to have a chance to win.

  137. The temptations there would probably be too much for me. How do you resist them?! I would need a bigger house and have to do a whole lot more quilting!

  138. How about Lila Tueller, would love to see her booth. And those sweet boxes look awesome, winning one of those would be soo SWEET.

  139. Ooo, I want to hear about any of the Moda designers, Bunny Hill Designs, Anna Marie Horner….

    Well, really anything and anybody! 🙂

  140. Love all your Quilt Market posts. Love seeing all the new lines coming out, but most of all love the sampler box. Go Moda keep the new lines and products coming.

  141. I love all the new fabric that is coming out. The fabric boxes are wonderful! I would love one of those. I hope you were able to spend lots of time with Anne Sutton. Isn't she a wonderful designer?

  142. Sample box is a terrific idea…love it, especially for someone with me who wishes I could build up a scrap pile to make a scrappy quilt.

  143. I'm loving your Market posts! Can you visit Melly & Me, Michael Miller & show more of Robert Kaufman…Oh & Amy Butler!

  144. Thanks so much for the pictures of Quilt Market. So many exciting things to look forward to buying. Cool that Moda has come out with the 2 1/2 inch square! (Now that I've finished cutting all those squares for my queen size quilt LOL!!)

  146. I'd like to see Little Acorn with Brenda's new fabric. Pat Sloan! And if Lizzie B. Creative's there! Thanks for showing award winning booths – I always like to see them too:) Thanks for the chance to win a sampler box – what will Moda think of next!!!

  147. I don't tweet…twitter so I can't get a point for that BUT I can say it has been fun seeing these blogger's post with enthusiasm about what they are seeing and one mentioned Fat Quarter shop so I thought I'd best get on over here to see what the fuss was about! I hope I didn't miss out.

  148. I would love to see a picture of Lila Tueller and her booth.. Ohh.. and how about the Sweetwater booth.. I wanna see that too!!

  149. I just knew it was time for Moda to have something new and fun to spark our imagination! I love the market pics, your pics are the best I've seen. I feel like I was there.

  151. It has been several years since I have been to market as I no longer own a shop. I miss sample spree the most, I think. Not the chaos but getting that first peek at the new stuff! I would love a little piece of it!

  152. I've heard that it was GREAT as always! A friend saw some cute quilted baby shoes and a pattern for them by Curby's Closet. Thanks for the give-a-way!
