Quilt Market Fall 2011: Schoolhouse - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Quilt Market Fall 2011: Schoolhouse

The day has come to an end, and looking back, Schoolhouse seems like a bit of a blur! We wore our running shoes and did our best to make it to as many amazing Schoolhouse lectures as possible, and boy did we have fun! We would seriously love to share everything with you, but for now, here are a few of the highlights with you:

Have you heard about this man? He’s Amy Butler’s husband, David Butler – designer name “Parson Gray“.  He’s a cutie isn’t he? (and he’s in a band)! This is an absolutely incredible men’s line! You can visit his Curious Nature bundles on our Coming Soon page now.

Debbie ran into Amy Butler in the stampede of people on the way to their next class.

Thomas Knauer’s brand new line, Flock,  inspired by The Brady Bunch- He said Pear Tree was inspired by The Partridge Family. What do you think his next line will be??

Rachel Griffith showing off her Stitch bag to Betz White before Betz’s Schoolhouse.  It’s cute isn’t it?!

Jane Sassaman (in the middle) flaunting her Early Birds line. She was really a hoot!

And have you heard about Vanessa Christenson’s new book? It’s all about sewing for the busy mom.  She also shows you how to use a lot of texture rather than prints for a sophisticated and clean appeal. Here is an example she of a super cute quilt she made using traditional doilies.

At Swirly Girl Designs’ class she presented the Weekend Clubhouse 2012 Block of the Month quilt. You can choose from two different colorways – a blue and tan called Cabana and a white and red called Cottage – both absolutely stunning!

Hungry? I am! These look delicious don’t they?  Kari Ramsay of Fresh Cut Quilts had these displaying at her class. Have you checked out her Daisy Dance line yet?

Kimberly and the lovely Anna Griffin at the Anna Griffin Blend Launch Party.

Everything was amazing and it was great to see everyone! But i bet you’re all dying to know what our big surprise was…Debbie Taylor got to speak for It’s Sew Emma at Patty Young’s Schoolhouse lecture! Check out this adorable quilt! Don’t ya’ll just love the pattern and then fabric?!

She talked about her new pattern, “Gumdrop Garden”, which uses Patty Young’s line Lush.

Have you chatted on #talknt? Well here is the creator of it all Cara Wilson aka @CaraQuilts as she bumped into Stephanie at Fabric 2.0.  See the shawl on her shoulder? That is backed with Moda’s Snuggles – she said that people would not stop petting her all day.  It really is just so soft!!

Look who else I spotted at Fabric 2.0– that’s Rashida Coleman Hale designer of I Heart.. she’s so cute!

And, of course, we found some of the Moda girls. They are always a hoot to kick back with after the long day. From left to right.. Stephanie, Joanna Figueroa, Kate Spain, Jocelyn & Sarah.

And then we hit Sample Spree –  everyone attacked the Moda booth!!

Now for the part you guys have really been waiting for … a giveaway! Look what we got today at Sample Spree… Papillon Fat Quarter Bundle by 3 Sisters. Isn’t it so gorgeous?

  137. Being on the other side of the world means I can only dream of attending Quilt Market. Thank you so much for sharing all the beautiful photos, I don't feel like I'm missing out so much! I love seeing all the new fabric lines, and already have ideas on how I can use that lovely bundle you are giving away.

  138. This is hard, because I love it all! Besides all the wonderful new product, I especially love being able to put names and faces together…thank you so much for labeling people in the photos so I could do that! It would be great to experience Market and the Houston show one day in person, until then, thank you! Kathy O in GA

  139. Just love all the new fabrics.
    Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
    and for the chance to win. I look forward to more!

  140. All that fabric would be a sensory overload just like chocolate – would love to have your job!!! The new fabrics and designs really wake up your imagination to create! Running to order NOW….

  141. I'd love to see the booths of people who are at market for the first time – new designers to watch for, etc. thanks for the update and the chance to win a gorgeous bundle!

  142. I love seeing the trends in colors that appear at Market. Loving the shades of gray that are in more and more lines.

  143. I'll never get to a real market ever, so I especially like following you there..so exciting! I like seeing the designers; being able to put a face to the name and I watch for the newest color trends.

  144. Even though it is early to be thinking about it, I am so excited to get my hands on some of aneela hoey's latest line. I've already explained to my husband how perfect it would be for a little girl (or two!) someday. πŸ™‚

  145. I really liked the modern quilt relish. I usually like Jo Morton so this is really different, but I LOVE it. really easy and very fresh. Maybe it is the snow outside, but I must have that quilt.

  146. I want to see red/blue/tan small prints for the Dear Jane I keep meaning to start. Once I've decided on a color scheme, the rest should be a snap, right? LOL

  147. I love seeing all the pictures from the designer's booths. It makes me want to start sewing with all the new lines of fabric coming out.

  148. I just excited to see all the new fabrics that are due to come out! i haven't bought any fabric for a while so I'm hoping there are lots of "Must Haves"…wait…maybe I should wish for not so many Must Haves…my wallet and hubby may be thankful for that! πŸ˜‰

  149. Just love following all the excitement! Papillon and the California Girls and Reunion have been teasing us so it would be just great to win that bundle. Thanks!

  150. I'm always excited to see the booths at market. They are always so colorful and inspiring! When I go to the Quilt Festival in Houston I always find one fabric, pattern, or gadget that makes me fall in love with quilting all over again. Then I can't wait to get home to start touching, playing,working with it. The Festival feels like Christmas morning did when you were a kid.

  151. I love it all!! seing all the fun makes me wish I could go with you. Ilove the new fabrics & patterns and all your photos and your comments you share with us. Look forward to more!!!!

  152. This new collection from 3 Sisters snuck up on me… I love their fabric – this one looks perfect for my stash!!

  153. I would be so thrilled to see all the new fabrics, especially anything by Kate Spain. I hope that I'd be able to slow myself down to where I could appreciate each and every fabric I saw, and not have them all lumped up in a big blur.
