Fall Quilt Market 2015: Schoolhouse

It’s back to school with Schoolhouse! Today was all about rushing from class to class, seeing and hearing about everything new for the season straight from the designers and trendmakers, and spending some time with serious quilt eye candy. Keep reading to see all of the fun we had! Plus, visit our Instagram and Twitter for more photos. 

Excited to show off our new Fat Quarter Shop t-shirts!
We thoroughly enjoyed the first Moda & Martingale beauty pageant! Lots of wigs, twirling, fancy dresses, and some very brave men.  Kudos to all of the designers, you’re all winners to us.  The sashes they wore are their contribution to their upcoming All in a Row book.
Cindy Cloward and Jina Barney of Riley Blake Designs have got some exciting news!!  They are revamping their solids with beautiful Confetti Cottons.  Check out the awesome Crayola Fat Quarter Box they’ve designed — so much nostalgia.
Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts showing off a new quilt to satisfy your sweet tooth — and it’s called Sweet Tooth ๐Ÿ™‚ It uses her Hex N More and Super Sidekick rulers, and it just looks so freaking cool.
Vanessa Christenson is soooo adorable.  And so are her Color Theory books!  The Purple one is almost here.  Gotta collect them all!
Cotton + Steel riveted us with their upcoming lines.  We fell head over heels for this Ladies Night quilt!  Definitely feeling groovy, ya dig?
Angela Walters of Quilting is My Therapy has gotten just the right angle on geometrics in Fragmental.  We are really excited to work with this fabric and just might have some awesome projects up our sleeves for it.
Ella Blue is definitely on our watch list.  We are loving all these bright and cheery colors, like in this new line The Cat’s Pyjamas!
Kindred Spirits continues!  New fabrics and a new club, details to come soon.  Rich colors and classic prints, bring it on!
Calling my #tulatroops!  Get ready for Tula Pink’s next woodland adventure with a curious little chipmunk named Chipper.  She has other exciting products debuting, which we’ll show you later this weekend.
Capping off the night at Sample Spree.  We know it’s a tough gig manning the booth, but these Moda peeps are still all smiles.  Give them a hand for another successful night!
What do you call it when you take a selfie of taking a selfie?  A backsie?  Anyways, we had fun at Schoolhouse today!

  1. I'm going against the tide so far but I like the Kristen quilt. it looks like it would grow well with a little girl, with out being to babyish. I also really like Kimberly. Also the quilt called Kimberly ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I have to go with Katherine because I think my little granddaughter is a little princess and Katherine is my daughter's name. Emma was adorable too.

  3. I love Kristen very much! But all are really sweet patterns! Thanks for sharing from the Market. It is so much fun to get a little the taste of it!

  4. Love following your coverage of the Quilt Market!! Can't wait for the Fat Quart Baby Book to arrive at my door. Love them all, but the Claire Quilt has a special place in my heart :)!

  5. This book looks fantastic – while I would make any of these quilts, I'll pick Claire as my favorite! I will be getting a copy. Enjoying all of your Market posts, videos, etc! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  6. Love love LOVE seeing all the colorful fabric collections!

    As for which FQS Baby GIRL Quilt, I adore my namesake "Elizabeth". The flowers made from hearts is just sew cute! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Looking forward to more SchoolHouse updates!


  7. Thanks for all the insights on Market. You are the best #QuiltMarket reporter ever!

    Super cute video and beautiful quilts. All are absolutely beautiful. Clare and William both caught my attention, but they'd all be fun to make and give as gifts. Looks like a #1 go to book for making baby quilts (and more).


  8. My favourite girl quilt was the Sarah. But my favourite of all the book was Andrew & Peyton, which could also be for girls…

  9. Make a choice? That's tough! I really like Claire for a little girl but love Elizabeth as well. Decisions, decisions, decisions … Claire? Maybe but ….

  10. Oh my gosh all of the quilts are so cute and we have just learned that we have a new great grand baby on the way-good timing! I think I am a little partial to Claire but Emma is a close runner up!

  11. I can't wait to receive my preordered book! The first baby quilt I will make will be the ????Kimberly???? quilt because I always make pretty little headband bows for the new baby girls I know???? Every single baby quilt in the book is adorableโœจ????????????โœจ

  12. All of the quilts are adorable. My favorite would have to be Emma. Love the butterflies. Thank you for the chance to win this fabulous giveaway!
