Fall Market ’10: Day 2 – Ready, Set, Go… and then let’s Give!


Between appointments today we were able to stop by a few of the great booths here at Market. It’s been a long day, but we’ve had a great time talking with some of your favorite pattern and fabric designers.

Anna Griffin — just came out with some amazing lines!

The Isabelle Christmas Collection by Anna Griffin (June 2011)– this picture does not do the fabric justice (sometimes that thing called lighting doesn’t work out so well), but it’s an absolutely adorable vintage Christmas collection. Sarah (my partner in crime here at the FQS), has been looking to make stockings for her fireplace and she instantly fell in love!

The Willow Collection by Anna Griffin (December 2010)– we also just ordered this one. Super elegant and classic colors! Anna really did it up this time!
Not Only is this completely stellar for those little rascals that try their hardest to aim inside the bowl and might still need a stepping stool to do so, but it’s environmentally friendly too! Birch Organic Fabrics have done it again with Beach Mod Circa 60 and Marine.– and yes those are her boys and hubby in the pics– absolutely perfect photo memories, what a good lookin’ squad!

Some kids got a little festive for their booths! Debbie Porreca, head of Sales at Michael Miller, put on her vintage shoes today to get wrapped in their theme!
Bonne Amies (shown above and below) are keeping that vintage inspiration Debbie had above. And yes, we will now be getting this line– in January 2011– the bird print is to die for!– so elegant and yummy (and no that is not me wanting to eat the birds)! πŸ˜‰
Then we ran into Patty Young again! (with Debbie from FQS) Her new line Sanctuary is coming out in January– which she is actually wearing.. and you can see her darling little girl wearing it in the back photo!
Val and Anne (Pillow & Maxfield) posing with their new line Gypsy Bandana (also shown below). If you look at our flickr site you can find the full shot of the bed, including how they used the border print on the bed skirt!
Val and Anne pointed out to me the orange bullseye.. can you find it!? Note: they didn’t do that on purpose and it can be easily avoided. πŸ˜‰ Still so completely adorable though!
Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company informed us she just finished her next Schnibbles book and will have more patterns coming out in January. πŸ™‚
Look who I found next! So did you know that Marcus Brothers Fabric Company has been passed down the Marcus Family for 100 years now! That’s Martin Marcus in the middle ( the owner), his son Daniel on the left, and Stephanie (who makes sure we know all the lowdown on new lines) on the right. Martin looks pretty sharp, eh? He was countin’ down the seconds of when he could jump outta that suite and slide into his comfy clothes!
Once again Anna Maria Horner has flirted our way into our hearts with Innocent Crush! Can you please make that in my size Anna!?
Elizabeth Scott of Late Bloomer Quilts has put the Red Rose Farm in action! Better be aware, you might get wet with the sprinkler check!
ANNND last but not least!
We had a TV celebrity in the house today! Most famously know as the Host from “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and was also the carpenter on “Trading Spaces.” Well believe it or not, he is now releasing a line for Westminster Fibers in the near future!
Sooo we got about half way done with the show today– to see more pics check out our flickr site. — Don’t worry we have a lot of goodies scheduled for tomorrow! I really cannot wait to see what is in store!

And now! Once again.. you guessed it… Another giveaway! We are giving away an Oasis FQB by 3 Sisters. To enter leave a comment on here, on twitter or on our facebook status about this “Jolly Jabber Update”. You need to write about something we showed you today! And… ready… GO!

This contest will close Sunday, October 31st @ midnight CST.


  1. It all looks fab, so can't comment on anything specific. Wish I didn't live on the other side of the world, otherwise I'd be there in a flash.

  2. I just love that quilt made with Red Rose Farm, love that line! And anything from Miss Rosie is fabulous, loved her first schnibbles book, can't wait for the second one!

  3. I love the Gypsy Bandana line. And how come everyone is smiling in all these photos? Are they at a quilt show or something? πŸ™‚

  4. Gorgeous new fabrics! I love everything you shared with us, especially the colors in Gypsy Bandana. Can't wait to see what Ty comes up with, too!

  5. I love the Isabelle Christmas Collection by Anna Griffin. Great fun seeing all the new lines. I look forward to tomorrows tour as well. Job well done, FQS ladies! We thank you. Now go soak your aching feet–I hear them barking here in Austin.

  6. I Love seeing all the Gorgeous Booths at Houston..it is so far away for us to just pop on over…maybe one day..I Love Birch organic Fabrics in Beach Mod Circa 60 reminds me of my Teenage Years with Surfers driving around the local streets with their Boards on the roof of their cars…posing of course..
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Sounds like you are having a great time. That Gypsy Bandana and Innocent Crush both look wonderful. So many beautiful choices that you have to make!

  8. Oh! you're so lucky to have this event going on there! It's great though that we can have a glance at all the new fabrics and collections that are being presented through all the blogs like this one! I like the Willow collection and the Gypsy Bandana, I can't wait to build up my stash!

  9. Oh such a lovely post full of inspiration! I love the quilt made up in the Organic birch fabrics with the birds on, the lovely vibrant fabrics from Pillow and Maxfield and that dress from Anna Maria Horner is just gorgeous..I want…. and who would thought Ty Pennington could design a fabric range?! Look forward to seeing that one! Oh and those Red Rose Farm fabrics are just so pretty and romantic. Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. Wow!!! I have never seen the market before and I guess I am unlikely to over here in Albany, Western Australia, in this life time, so THANK YOU for the wonderful pictures and commentary. I am passing the blog onto my friends. I love the Christmas collection by Anna Griffin and have to look up more of her designs. How fabulous you have put all this up for us online. I am clicking immediately to see more on Flickr.You must LOVE your jobs..
    Cheers to all…..

  12. Anna Griffin's Christmas collection looks really promising πŸ™‚ I love all the pictures you have made for us. I feel like I am almost there.

  13. Thank you for sharing all those pictures, I love to see 'everything' LOL. The biggest show here I've been had 18 shops and 250 quilts and I was so impressed. I think my eyes would spin out of my head if I could come to Houston ;-).
    I love the willow range, it would go great with my antique blue and white willo China plates,( I'm the proud oner of a few). But I've seen several other series, I 'drooled' over :-)))
    Thanks for this great give-away.

  14. Thankyou for introducing me to some lovely designers and including the link for them. WOW how much fun and excitement can you ladies fit in..

  15. My dream is to one day get to Market but until then I devour the FQS updates and photos and make believe that I am there already. I have a little daydream in the morning with my coffee and then straight back to work designing and creating. I really love the Beach Mod Circa 60 – looking forward to creating super stylish beach bags.

  16. The Gypsy Bandana line is so bright and cheerful… love it! Thanks for all you Market posts. I always love following along.

  17. Thank you for bringing all the fun into my home for me!!! Someday I'll visit one of these Quilt Markets too…
    Its just too far (half of earth's circumference to be exact) for me…
    I'd love to win some fabric from you…
    Cheers from India

  18. Oh, thank you so much for sharing these fabulous pictures. I am drooling looking at the fabulous new lines coming out. I have to say that I love your comment about Marcus Brothers fabric… family owned for 100 years… that is wonderful. Also, can't wait to see Patty Young's new line! Keep the pictures coming and thanks so much for a chance to win!! You gals are awesome!!!!

  19. Wow, your photos look fantastic! I wish I could be there, too!
    I fell in love with the Isabelle Christmas Collection, itΒ΄s awesome!!

  20. I have just enjoyed looking through your Flickr photos from today and yesterday there are some lovely ranges coming. I especially like both of Anna Griffins new ranges and also Gypsy bandanna fabrics the bed looked lovely bright and fun.

    Thank You

  21. I wish that I could be there. Thanks for putting faces with the different fabric designers- I love the Willow fabric and Bonne Amies.

  22. Great seeing all those new fabrics and patterns. Spotted any TV Celebs besides the Extreme Makeover-Man?
    Or any popstars? Would be fun when Mick Jagger would release a line for Moda – maybe something with devils and angels? Just kidding O:)

  23. I haven't sewn a dress in many years, but Anna Marie Horner's dress in her new fabric line (I'm blanking and I did go back and check the name) is stunning. I might have to start garment sewing again. Thanks so very much for these awesome photos and report! I'm off to look at your Flickr photos. Have a great day!

  24. I love the bed quilt you showed a picture of…the blues, yellows, stars, squares, etc. and I love the additional quilt thrown over the bed at the bottom.

  25. Thank you for bringing all the fun of Market! I love your photos of all the booths, new fabric lines…and new Schnibbles from Carrie and Miss Rosie!!!…makes me feel like I'm there. Thanks so much!

  29. I love the display in the backdrop of picture one…with the vintage dogs. What line is this? Thanks for the fabulous updates!

  30. I always love reading the posts about Market. It makes me feel like I am there walking through the aisles. Ty Pennington and fabric. Very interesting. I watch the show on tv so it will be interesting to see what he comes out with. As the the Marcus Brothers, nice to see it's a family owned business and not some conglomerate. I like the new fabrics but have to say the ones that interest me the most are Carrie Nelson and Robyn Pandolph.

  31. Can't wait for a Schnibbles new book from Carrie Nelson! I also love the Isabelle Christmas Collection by Anna Griffin, love the stockings also!

  32. Wow! What a show! Loving it all, but my favorite is the Willow line by Anna Griffin. So beautiful and so versatile, I can think of so many things to make from this line!

  34. So many beautiful things! Looking forward to the release of Isabelle. I agree – will make great stockings. So exciting to see Ty Pennington at market.

  35. Its all GOOD, I love Debbie Porreca of Michael Miller, she is adorable!!!! Can't wait to see all the new lines…….saving my money for the new Anna Griffin fabs….LOL

  36. I just love the new line from Bonne Amies–the colors are great! I also love the Willow collection! It is all gorgeous!

  37. Can I please have that Anna Maria Horner dress, too? Is there a pattern somewhere for it? Can't wait to see what else is coming out.

  38. Ty Pennington , huh ? that's neat ! and I think I'm in love iwth the gypsy bandanna and bonne amies ; and everybody seems to be having a FABULOUS time there ! what fun .

  46. I really enjoyed seeing the picture of Mr. Marcus-the man behind the fabrics. Wow! They've been doing fabric for a lo-o-ong time! Thanks!

  47. OOOOO such pretty fabrics! I love Gypsy Bandana and the Isabelle Christmas Collection especially! I'm definately going to have to start shopping online since by the time these lovelies are available I'll be an hour further away from any fabric stores. Thanks for tempting us all with the pretty pictures!

  48. So nice to finally see Elizabeth Scotts goodies after all the teasing from PKM. Willow looks wonderful and a new book from Carrie. WOW, what a wonderful time you must be having!!!!!!

  49. Love those dresses in the Michael Miller booth! And thanks for the picture of Ty – what a cutie! I'll be interested to see what his fabric line looks like!

  50. I'm so in love with it all… now to figure out how to pay for all the yummy fabrics to come! πŸ™‚ CASH for CHRISTMAS!!!!! lol

  51. Love, love, love all of it!! However, I think the Red Rose Farm is going to be a "must-have" for me. πŸ™‚ Can't wait to see Ty's line as well! Wish I was there, but since I can't be – Thank you for the photos!!

  52. I wish I could be there. It is so nice to be able to come here for updates. A new Schnibbles book? Yay!!! I look forward to it. I love that quilt hanging behind the Marcus family. Could that be their new BOM? Yummy!

    I already have a project in mind for that Oasis fat quarter tower.

    I look forward to more updates, thank you!

  53. I am enticed by the fabric in the Bonne Ames photo. But the Ty Pennington news is like, Wow!! Great to have him on board. Maybe we'll see more quilts on his show.

  54. All those fabric lines look so fabulous that it's difficult to choose one to mention. But the Willow line by Anna Griffin has a real timeless elegance to it that really stands out. And, of course, anything 3 Sisters is always so appealing!

  55. Thank you for sharing market with those of us who went there :(. Can't wait to see the Christmas fabric….want to make new Christmas stockings. Thanks for the giveaway.

  56. I'm so excited about everything you shared. I read every word! A new Schnibbles book has me really excited and I can't wait to see the Ty Pennington fabric. Anna Griffin is so very talented and classy, too. I just love it all!

  57. I love the Anna Griffin Christmas fabric, she always has such pretty designs. Maybe I love her so much because she shares my maiden name, Griffin!

  58. Thank you for showing the great pictures from market. Can't wait to see the rest of them. Gypsy Bandana caught my eye…beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway!

  59. Thanks for all the eye candy. I see a lot of possibilities with the fabric of Anna Griffin. I like the Christmas fabrics in traditional colors, and her other line looks yummy, too.

  60. Thanks for showing so much variety! From the old fashioned Christmas to the elegant manequins in Michael Miller's booth, Wow I don't know how you can take all so much in, plus decide what to order!! Can't wait for Carrie's new book and patterns!

  61. Oh here in France Extreme Makeover is famous too!!!
    I am very curious of the new line !!

  75. Thanks for sharing all the photos. I love seeing all the faces behind the names and their creative booths! I'm looking forward to the new Schnibbles book! Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  76. I keep forgetting that it's Halloween everywhere, not just in my neighborhood. So when I saw the pic of Deb Porreca from MM, I had to do a double take!

    Love those new lines, and wishing I could be there to share in the fun!

  77. So appreciate the pictures! I am a scrapbooker who has fallen in love with quilting. I loved Anna Griffin's papers, and now… her fabrics. The Blue Willow and Vintage Christmas lines are beautiful.

  84. I can't wait to see more pictures of market…I love seeing all the new lines that will be coming out. And I'm excited about a new schnibbles.

  85. thanks for taking us with you to Houston. It's like looking over your shoulder. The Oasis line is so cute, wouldn't it be fantastic to win this bundle, I'm wondering …. in Germany
    hugs Brigitte

  86. I'm looking forward to ALL the new fabric lines coming our way, but the Willow Collection is intriguing. I'd also love a peek at the line Ty Pennington has coming out. I've seen lots of pictures of him, but haven't caught any of his stuff yet.

  87. Love to see all the excitement in Houston, wish I could be there too! I loved the Michael Miller pics! Can't wait to see that fabric line in person. I am also very excited about a new scnhibbles book coming soon!

  88. I'm excited to hear that Carrie Nelson has a new book and new patterns coming soon. I can't wait to see what patterns are included in her new book.

  89. How much fun! I love Val & Anne's line Gypsy Bandana… You can never go wrong with some bright colors! email(nataliemfrancis@gmail.com)

  90. Oasis is soooo beautiful! I can see some yellows peeking out of the bundle:) Ummm . . .if someone else wins the FQB can I have Ty Pennington instead??? Hope you are all having a wonderful time!!

    Hugs from Chicago!

  91. I love the new monaluna fabric, Beach Mod Circa 60! Looks like Market is going well and wish I could be there to see it all in person. I'll have to wait until it is available I guess…I'm starting to save my $ now.

  92. I can't imagine how much fun it is market! Someday I'm going to make one of Miss Rosie's patterns, I see so many of her cute things on other blogs! And I love 3 Sisters!

  93. What a gorgeous line…..tons of ideas for this one! Wish I could be there to see all these FUN, new goodies!

  94. So excited to hear Miss Rosie will have a new Schnibbles book coming out soon. The new Willow line from Anna Griffin is so classy, timeless! Keep the pics coming!

  95. Carrie Nelson said a new Snibbles book is coming out?!! I'm soooooo there! I want to see more of Anna Maria Horner's "Innocent Crush" — your sneak peek is not enough for me…!

  96. Thanks for the giveawy and all the updates on Market for those of us that can't attend. I was thrilled to learn that Carrie Nelson will have a new book and patterns coming out in January!

  97. My 8yo daughter was looking over my shoulder as I was swooning over all the beautiful fabrics when she asked, "What does Ty have to do with fabric?" LOL.

  98. How nice to see that an American Company is still an American company…. Congratulations Marcus Brothers!!!

    And I bet Ty fit in with the quilting community…. he has the personality.

    Thanks so much for hosting this!

  99. First a confession: I am a new quilter and of the four quilts I've made, two of them are 3 Sisters fabric collections!

    Really looking forward to see what Ty Pennington has to offer. I wonder if it would be a more masculine looking line. It is really hard to make quilts for guys that aren't just plaid, stripes or novelty fabrics.


  100. Looking forward to seeing the new Schnibbles book – wouldn't using Oasis for some of her patterns be great! πŸ˜‰

  101. I'd love the chance to win the new 3 Sisters fabrics. I love your market updates and excited to hear about a new Schnibbles book and new Miss Rosie patterns coming out in January!

  102. I saw some new fabrics that I can't wait for them to come out! I'm finishing a quilt top today and already have my next one planned out!

    Becca (craftydonnellY@gmail.com)

  103. SO much fun to see a what is at market!! I liked to see the pics on Flickr too. Glad to hear a 2nd Schnibbles book is coming out, and always love 3 Sisters fabric!! Looking forward to more pictures!!

  104. I'm looking forward to Ty's fabric line ~ maybe they'll be lots of flower-free prints and my husband will approve. I've been having a hard time finding a line for a quilt for our bed.

  105. I love seeing all the new fabrics and the smiling faces of the designers. Thanks for the great coverage. I can't wait to see the Gypsy Bandana fabric up close and personal. πŸ˜‰

  106. I was very surprised to see Ty at the bottom of your post, looking forward to seeing his fabric! I would love love love the fat quarter pack as my 2 sisters and I (3 sisters!!) are planning to make a quilt for our parent's 50th wedding anniversary next year.

  107. Wow…a great update on the doin's at Fall Market. The timing couldn't be better because I'm setting up my new sewing room! The first one I have had in over 15 years as we found ourselves raising grandchildren and having beds in every room but the bathroom, LOL…But it was worth all the lost sewing time and all the clutter, to help them on their way! However…now, being happy empty nesters, I finally get a sewing room, well, most of it, there is a pool table against the wall covered up *sigh*) But I digress…Now I organize, and the first thing I took care of was my meager fabric stash, even though the rest of the room still looks like a bomb went off, when I walk into the room and see the fabric neatly placed on the new shelves. But there is a problem…I have empty shelves (oh horror) and after seeing all the great new fabric lines coming out, I'm thinking that I might need MORE shelves!!! I loved seeing the designers along with their new lines. I can't wait to get my hands on Carrie's next Schnibbles book, what a whirlwind she is! OH! and I am happily surprised to see so many lovely clothing items on display. Wonderful! HEY??? you think maybe since we are retired and on a limited budget, the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" would be interested in redoing my sewing room to allow for all the things I 'HOPE' to be able to fill the shelves up with? NO??? Ah well, it was worth a try, LOL! Delightful to see him there and I can't wait to see his new Westminster Fibers line too! Thanks so much for sharing all your fun with us and I'm sending big hugs and thanks to all the designers that help make our quilting, sewing and decorating dreams come to life! OH! and another big thanks to you at the FQS, for the chance to have the beautiful FQB by 3 Sisters. I have a place on my new shelves just waiting for it!!!*wink*

  108. Thanks for all the great pictures and letting us know what is new. It will be interesting to see what Ty Pennington designs for us quilters to use. Thanks for the chance to win 3 Sisters Fabric Bundle!

  109. Gypsy Bandanna is TO DIE FOR!!! I am so excited to use this line. Seeing their bed gave me tons of ideas. Thanks for the sneak peek!!

  110. I think it's so cute that Patty Young is wearing an outfit made from the same fabric as her little girl. I know my 11 yr old girl wouldn't EVER let that happen.

  111. I love hearing about market, just wish I was close and could attend. Love the new Oasis fabric from 3 Sisters.
    I am sure I could think of something fun to do with it.
    Can't wait to see your next blog.

  112. I agree with Sarah.. the vintage christmas Isabelle line is awesome! I also can't wait to see was Carrie has created in her new book!! You have too much fun, thank you for sharing the events.

  113. What a gorgeous bundle!! I love everything 3 Sisters has ever made. This line looks like another must-have. Thanks for all the great pictures of market…wish I could be there!

  114. I have thoroughly enjoyed your market updates & photos!
    Yes, please enter me into your "Oasis" FGB giveaway!
    Comment on one fabric line ~ impossible!
    I'm drawn to Carrie Nelson's new Schnibbles book; Birch Organic Fabrics; cutie Ty P.& his upcoming fabric's; and both of Anna Griffin's fabric collections πŸ™‚

  115. Loved the Marcus Bros.vintage line, and oh Anna Griffin Christmas Collection is devine…..also saw the orange bulls eye. :). Thanks for sharing!!!

  116. What a treat. I love the Isabelle christmas line from Anna Griffin. I owned a shop 30 yrs. ago and it was hard to make a decision when the reps came to the shop. I don't think that I could make make a decision at Houston. It would be brain overload. This would be a blast to experience. YOu are so lucky!!! Have fun and keep up the updates. They will be enoyed

  117. I'd love to see what Ty Pennington designed 'cause I can't imagine what it'll look like. I also really liked the clean lines of the bird quilt.

  118. WOW! you really get me inspired with all those fabrics! can`t wait for the gypsy bandana to come out! Please keep us posted on all those amazing fabrics and quilts you are seeing.
    great pics!

  119. oh my!!!! why??? why do I live so far from that heaven?!?!?! Lucky you ;-)))

  120. Wow, what an exciting place! If I ever make it to Market I will have thought I had died and gone to Heaven. I am in love with Red Rose Farm. What a cute little booth they have! Can't wait for more updates.

  121. Ooh! I absolutely love Anna Griffin's Christmas fabrics – The stockings are adorable, and I dearly want to make the pillow with the buttons! When did you say it was coming???

  122. I'm fascinated with the Anna Griffith quilt with the birds, nice! And, a new Schnibbles book and patterns coming in January, awesome. I love the Oasis fabric by 3 Sisters, beautiful.

  123. I love the Isabelle collection by Anna Griffin — hope you have it soon. And I can't wait for the new Schnibbles book by Carrie Nelson. Thanks for the great update!!

  124. I found the Late Bloomer booth with Red Rose Farm fabrics especially inviting. Those colors in the pink, blue and yellow quilt made me want to just sit and stay a while. I want a quilt just like it for my house.

  125. I loved all of the pictures but I really like the Willow Collection by Anna Griffin. Some neat ideas in her booth, too.

    Hope I win the FQB by Oasis it looks wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing the show with us!

  126. Love all the pictures! The vintage dresses are awesome…and love the wig! πŸ™‚

    And I can't believe Ty Pennington is there! Never would have thought it!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  127. Oh my goodness! Too many beautiful choices for one to pick. Love Red Rose Farm and can't wait to see what Ty Pennington has in store for us. Wish I was there. Thanks for sharing with everyone.

  128. This blog was so nice. I like the
    Isabelle and the Willow. Innocent
    Crush is fantastic. I hope to buy some soon. Thank you for the update.

  129. As much as I love all the new quilting fabrics, I'm especially excited about Patty's new knits in Sanctuary. She looks so cute in her dress in the photo!

  130. Bonne Amies! The bird fabric is beautiful. The michael miller model wearing the curtain dress is sooooo classy lol (Oh, Rhett….)

  131. Thanks for sharing some of the fun! I liked the vintage themed booths/products you showed. Some lovely fabrics headed our way soon!

  132. I have a friend that loves Anna Griffith scrapbooking papers! So I'll be interested in seeing her fabrics "live" and in person!

    I had heard rumors that Ty Pennington was at Market but I hadn't seen an actualy picture yet. Thanks for the pic!

  133. Thank you so much for sharing photos of the quilt festival! My mother and I would LOVE to attend someday…all of those creative people are so inspiring! It's hard to just pick one thing to write about, but I narrowed it down to the beautiful Isabelle Christmas Collection by Anna Griffin. I love the way she has displayed her designs (and I think I had a larger version of that sled when I was little!), and I love the vintage feel. Keep up the good work! I'm enjoying the fabrics vicariously through your photos and descriptions : )

  134. Oh, a new line by 3 sisters. I have a serious addiction to these drei geschwestern. I mean really serious. I hope they count as commenting about something you showed today. If not, then that blue Anna Griffin line is also lovely. I see beautiful things in my future, well, my mother's future actually with that one.

  135. Wow, the fabrics you guys got to see are fabulous! I especially love the Gypsy Bandana line, although I didn't see the bullseye you mentioned. How cool!

  136. The willow collection from Anna Griffin looks gorgeous like Dutch porselain,I love it,Marianne from Netherlands

  137. I love all the fabulous fabric. I can't wait for Carrie Nelson's new Schnibbles book. When that comes out, I will have fabulous patterns to make with all this new fabric. Fabulous! (I think I'm a little too excited.)

  138. I love the bags pictures in the willow collection. I'm thinking of making a blue and white mini-quilt for a friend. Maybe that's why they caught my eye. All the new fabrics are so fun to look at. I'd enjoy seeing the fabric you're giving away in person!

  139. I really can't wait to see Ty's line. I think he really is a fantastic and creative person so I can only imagine what he has in store for us fabriholics in the future!!

  140. I like Miss Rosie's Schnibble patterns so I'm glad to hear that new patterns are coming in January!

    Great giveaway…hope I win!

  141. Love all the pictures. Did you use the same fabrics for the Civil War Sampler in the Marcus picture? I loved the Willow Collection and Isabelle Christmas Collection. So excited to hear there is a new Schnibble book coming from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. Can't wait to see what you post next!

  142. I just love the colors in that new fabric line Marine! That would make an awesome quilt.

  169. Thanks for all those beautiful photos. I'll comment on Ty – very nice! – and Ms Carrie's new Scnibbles book. I'd better get complete on the old one before too much more time goes by!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  170. Greetings from Northern Saskatchwan Canada!
    Hi – I loved seeing all the pictures but I love the Christmas fabric too! And yes the stockings would be fabulous!

  171. I've just recently discovered Anna Griffin and love her fabrics! That Christmas collection looks lovely…I can think of several things I'd like to make with it.

  172. I love the look of Anna Griffins Christmas fabric. Another favourite is Carrie Nelson … love anything by her. And 3 Sisters are one of my favourite fabric designers … the new Oasis fabric looks fabulous … I always love their lighter collections best.

  173. I can't wait for the new Schnibbles book, I love all of her patterns. Also, the Willow Collection looks great. Thank you for the update on Market and also for a chance to be entered into your drawing.

  174. Oh I wish I was there with you!!! But thanks for all the pictures – it is so great to see the designers and the new fabric coming soon.

  175. Lots and lots of pretty fabric to look forward to!! I'm excited to hear about Carrie Nelson's new book – why can't it be coming out in December rather than January when it's too late to put on my Christmas list?! :0) I LOVE 3 Sisters fabric!

  176. Love the Pillow and Maxfield and also the Michael Miller! Looking forward to seeing them available soon!

  177. I really like the Anna Griffin Isabelle Christmas Collection. What lovely samples!!!

    Thanks for sharing all the Quilt Market fun!!

  178. It's hard to believe – Ty Pennington into fabric design. Innocent Crush is a good collection and like to hear more about generations of the Marcus Family in the business. I like birds, so the new Birch organic collections are great (hope they can do as intend on pricing). Hope win the 3 Sisters Oasis bundle as the colors look just like what I want for a new quilt. Take care and thanks for sharing with us.

  179. The new lines coming out are great. I especially love the Gypsy Bandana fabric. It looks like it would be awesome fabric for us in the cold snowy north winter we will have.

  180. Love all of these, but wish I had some of the Isabelle Christmas fabric line as I'm starting my Christmas sewing. Of course, the Oasis FQ bundle would be great to remind me spring will come back one of these months!

  181. oh my dream is to someday get to Houston and see all of that eye candy. Doesn't get much better than that! I do love you guys at FQ Shop-you're the best

  182. Thank you for sharing Market with us. It is so much fun to see all of the photos and comments. I love the Isabelle Christmas line by Anna Griffin – do I see a line with doggies??? How adorable. Lookiing forward to tomorrow's photos.

    Sally C.

  183. Thanks for the update. I love the quilt with the blackbirds on it, made from Beach Mod Circa 60 and Marine. Maybe a pattern will be available.

  184. Mmmm. . . how can you go wrong with 3 Sister's fabric? Or another Schnibbles book? Very envious of all of you at Market right now!

  185. Yay!!! The most exciting news for me is that Carrie Nelson is coming out with another book and more new patterns. I'm sewin' as fast as I can Carrie!!!

  186. I loved your post. Your comments along with the pictures speak for the great time you had. The rest of us from home could only envy you. Thank you for sharing it. The orange bull's eye was quite amusing. πŸ™‚


  187. I love the Gypsy Bandanna line and also the Oasis by 3 Sisters. Although I must admit, I usually love anything 3 Sisters does. Enjoy your time at Fall Market!

  188. i'm loving your twitter feed. makes me feel like i'm there πŸ™‚

    mostly, i can't believe that i didn't know until this very day that Ty Pennington was jumping into fabric. Swoon.

  189. Ty Pennington! Wow! Who would of thought that he would do a fabric line for quilters! Can't wait! Thanks for the pics of market and a chance to win such great fabrics.

  190. I leave for IQF on Friday – can't wait to see Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush in person! Thanks for the insider look at Market! p.s. also thanks for the quick shipment and great service on my order last week!

  191. The fat quarter bundle of Oasis looks as tempting as a tall glass of ice water on a steamy day with 100 degree heat! I'd love to try to sew it up into a beautiful quilt.

  192. I love the Michael Miller line, especially the model wearing the dress she saw in the window. Just fabulous! Thank you for all the news and pictures!

  193. Those Anna Griffin lines are beautiful! I am thinking the Christmas line for stockings just might be enough motivation for me to make them this year! And a giveaway by 3 Sisters… it doesn't get any better than that.

  194. Can't wait to see Carrie's new book. I just love making her Schnibbles quilts. So much fun. Market looks like a lot of fun but I'm sure there is so much work and stress involved. Thanks for the chance to win the fat quarter bundle. Thank You, Karen M

  195. I love anything by 3 Sisters. They are my all time favorite. But the next best thing on today's visit was the Willow Line by Anna Griffin for Windham. Thanks for updating us on market.

  196. Oh how I wish I was there to see everything! However you do a great job of blogging about all of the designers! I'm particularly interested in Anna Griffins Christmas line and also Carrie Nelson's new book!

  198. Thanks for keeping us informed of what is happening. Adore the Pillow&Maxfield line–love the bight colors. Now the bullseye–not sure I could pull off wearing that but still looks fabulous.
