  38. Thanks for sharing! My favorite part of market is seeing all the new fabric lins being released. I'm surprised by how much I love sugar pie! Tiny flowers usually aren't my favorite, but the colors in this one are just so fabulous!

  39. Market looked absolutely amazing this year. I keep thinking I dont know how designers can possibly top themselves each year, but they do! I am disabled and I wish I could go to an event where Edyta Sitar is doing book signing, i just adore her and want a book signed by her so badly and know thats not going to happen for me but I sure love seeing her at market, thank you for including photos of her work throughout this. I love her stuff! So many beautiful things this year! I am going to be in soooo much trouble. My husband is going to flip when he sees the deliveries increases even more than usual. Which doesn't even seem possible. Kwarren29@cox.net

  40. Such inspiration of color and design. What I found interesting was Lynette Jensen designing blocks at Cotton & Steel? The horse quilt by Cloud 9, Stay Gold by Aneela Host was really neat. Thanks for all the sneak peeks!

  41. Wow! Looks like great stuff there! I would be so overwhelmed. Thanks for sharing all the great pictures and for the opportunity to win some great fabric!

  43. Thanks for sharing the Market experience with us. So inspired by the new fabric lines you've shown. Need to start saving my pennies now. Love Moda fabrics and Free Spirit Fabrics.

  44. So much good stuff to look at! It's probably too crazy to do videos of quilt market? I'd be interested in that and even short interviews of the designers/makers at the booths :). Thanks for sharing and the giveaway!

  45. Can't wait to see the Cake Mixes! Very exciting. Looking forward to new fabrics and notions as always. Love Sugar Pie!

  56. It's a good thing quilters are not allowed to come to Quilt Market because the paramedics would be overcome with all of us overcome with all the new quilts, products and fabrics to be seen there. And if all the new fabrics were available for sale, the lines would be impossible. I would be one of those very people. These new fat quarters are going to make the lucky winners very happy! Thank you for the chance!
