Spring Quilt Market 2011- Day 1

Here in Salt Lake City, Utah we have the mountain tops sprinkled with snow …

Debbie, Camille & Kimberly in front of Ruby

Aneela Hoey teaching Make It & Take It on embroidery – she really is just a doll!

It might look like they are playing hopscotch, but I was actually timing them to see how long they could stand on one foot. That is their Hopscotch pattern made with Amelia!

Christina (mother/designer) & Kate (daughter/sidekick) of Moda’s newest designer Cabbages & Roses – Northcote Range has a really fresh & clean feel, yet very classic at the same time.

Eric & Julie (husband & wife team) of Cosmo Cricket

And then there is that girl, Mrs. Joanna of Fig Tree Quilts – Butterscotch & Rose is just like it sounds, the rose really makes her collection pop from previous lines – of course it is still very elegant though!
Did you catch her bustin’ a move on our Twitter at the Moda party? πŸ˜‰

The Moda Crew

  1. I just love Joel's Heirloom:)
    Thanks for all your hard work in getting tons of pics and keep us posted, it is such a pleasure to go through your tweets!:)

  2. ohhhh, i don't know hwich one – they are all fabulous – love the cosmo crickut range, and any thing moda, the ruby rane looks fabulous, and northcote form Cabbages and Roses…and butterscotch…oh to many choices!

  3. I like new Fig Tree… and Art to Heart Jingle All the Way is also lovely.

  4. My favorite line definately is Joanna's! I love all the Fig Tree fabrics and I use them in many of my quilts.

  5. Love Sarah Jane (might have something to do with my daughter being called the same) but the fabrics designs remind me of when time was easy and kids simply were left to be kids and have fun – ps the kona solids look wicked like that……

  6. Thank you so much for giving us all the chance to see these beautiful new collections… To think of all the heart, dedication and hours that have been put in to create such wonderful fabric designs. How lucky are we to be able to use others' beautiful creations to create something stitched for ourselves.
    As for a favourite… I'm a Figtree fan through and through!!!

  7. Wow they all look fantastic but my favorite would be Going Coastal Collection by Emily Herrick looking forward to seeing this range. The booths look amazing and colorful.

  8. My favourite would be Joel Dewberry's Heirloom range. A gorgeous colour palette and fantastic patterns. What could I do with this?

  9. The Cosmo Cricket booth looks fab! I'm loving the look of Joel Dewberry's Heirloom too.
    Thanks for the giveaway and for all your tweets from Quilt Market – such fun!
    Oh, I'd love to see more from Aneela's new line πŸ™‚

  10. It is really very difficult to choose a favorite. But, I love Amelia. Thanks.

  11. Thanks for all the photos! Such fun to pretend I am there πŸ™‚ I love the new Fig Tree, and Joel Dewberry's line. But they're all great! Hard to choose.

  12. I'd really love to see more of the Butterscotch & Rose. There's a quilt behind her that looks beautiful. I'm also interested in the Etchings. I've seen the name a few places, but this is the first time I've caught even a glimpse of the fabric.

  13. Thanks for today's post! Made me feel a bit like I was at Market. I kept reaching to fondle the fabric. The Kona Solids as ice cream was super. I love both the fabric and ice cream. Excited to see a bit of the new 3 Sisters line. Have a wonderful Saturday at Market!

  14. Thank you for sharing your Quilt Market photos with us. I would love to be there!
    I think my favorite new line of fabric is Fig Tree Quilt's Butterscotch and Rose.

  15. Ok, this is a really hard choice. I have been stalking Sarah Jane on Etsy for a while so I am so excited she now has fabric, too. However, I am a die hard 3 sisters addict. I always swoon over their newest lines.

  16. It's a tough choice for me between the Kona cottons, which are my fave of late and Ruby, which I am itching to get my hands on…oh and Aneela Hoey's new little apples line.

  17. They are all wonderful. I really like Sarah Jane's collection. As an expecting grandmother, I am always captured by fabrics for my first granddaughter.

  18. I love all of them, but if I had to pick one today, it would be Sarah and Jane. Thank-you for the give-a-away.

  19. I can't wait to get my hands on some of Aneela's new line. It's every bit as wonderful as Sherbet Pips was! I love this FQB as well, so thanks for the chance to win!

  20. Butterscotch and Rose from Fig Tree, I know there will some of this line making it's way to home as soon as I can!

  21. I'm looking forward to Sarah Jane's fabric lines. I don't have kids, but her prints,cards, and puppets are so cute I can hardly wait to see them in future lines!
    thanks for the giveaway!

  22. All the lines are beautiful! My favorite would have to be Joanna's Butterscotch and Rose. I also really like the "fa la la la" wall hanging/pillow from Art to Heart. Thanks for all the pictures!

  23. The Butterscotch and Rose is classy just like everything Joanna puts out, but I also think i'd like Ruby!

  24. All are beautiful but my favorite has to be the new designer Sarah Jane for Michael Miller. I've previewed her fabrics and they are adorable!

  25. Of course Fig Tree. I am a bit of a Fig Tree groupie. I am intrigued by Cabbages and Roses. Browsed their blog and I am drawn to their style.
    I clicked the Fig Tree link and it brought up the Peppermint Bark kit. That is SUPER cute! Are Moda bringing back honey buns?

  26. it is all so beautiful on the computer and i bet even more so where you can touch it! I always love Joanna's fab but I am also thinking the 'Cabbages and roses' looks very sweet. Thanks for a chance to win.

  27. I gotta be honest, my favorite is actually the Etchings. I just checked out the PDF at Moda's site and they are GORGEOUS. I'm a 3 Sisters junkie. πŸ™‚

  28. I think I like the Butterscotch & Rose, from what I can see of it. Of course all the fabrics and patterns are gorgeous.

  29. Can hardly wait to see Cabbage & Roses designs. Looking at the photo and some of the things on their site, I know I'll be putting it on my list of favorite designers.

  30. So hard to choose just one. I love the gray in Etchings. Gorgeous! All of the lines are super, super cute.

  31. Ruby by Bonnie and Camille, they are my absolute fave designers, so far I have a quilt made with their first two lines and need to make one with their third.

  32. Thanks for the great review! I'll go for Joanna's Butterscotch & Rose, I always fall for her collections and this one looks so promising!

  33. I would my favorite is Amelia and a very close second is Ruby by Bonnie and Camille. Thank you for the give away.

  34. I love all of the pictures. It's like being there. My favorite so far is the Fig Tree quilts. Would like to see more of the booth.
    Thank you for showing us!
    Sally

  35. OMG – thanks for sharing the pictures…so envious! Can't wait for the Butterscotch and Rose from Fig Tree Quilts. Totalling obsessing here!!!

  36. OMG!!! So much Moda cuteness, it's overwhelming!! How can you pick just one favorite of the lines you posted??? I guess i'd go for the Butterscotch and Rose from Fig tree Quilts, but oh those Etchings….can't wait to see that bundle opened up!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  37. So hard to pick! I'm going to have to go with the Heirloom collection though. I've been pulled to those sorts of prints lately!

  38. Oh! So hard to chose. I think my favorite is Heirloom By Joel Dewberry. But I also love Ruby, and Sarah Jane, oh… and of coarse Kona Cottons. Love these.

  39. Love the Joel Dewberry Heirloom; been wanting to make a lovely "heirloom" quilt for my mom with this line. Also, adore that quilt in the background at the Cluck.Cluck.Sew booth; it's trippy and super cool, easy to make on second look, but I love how the windmills create an optical illusion of more difficulty.

  40. Tough to choose, but I would say you can't go wrong with Joel Dewberry. Cosmo Cricket always has fun prints, too. They all look like they need a home with me!

  41. I am a huge Fig Tree fan and can't wait to see Joanna's new line. Thanks for the chance to win.

  42. Oh my…Ruby looks spectacular, but can't wait to see all of Going Coastal. Thanks for sharing the pics…it's like you have taken all of us along on the trip…YEAH!!!

  43. It is hard to choose my favorite as they are all soooo beautiful but I do love the brights in Cluck Cluck Sew.

  44. I've been a Nancy Halvorson fan from way back when. I've made a number of her patterns as gifts over the years. She never disappoints.

  45. If I could only pick one, it would be the Fig Tree line. There isn't one I'm not a fan of! You certainly have assembled the best designers here.

  46. Geez, it's hard to pick, but I'm anxious to see what Butterscotch and Rose looks like. Her lines are always beautiful.

  47. Love the excitement of Quilt Market – can only imagine how much fun it is! I'm impressed with them all, but the Cluck Cluck Sew photo's hold me captive!

  48. So many lovely patterns. First time I saw the Cosmo Cricket though… Need to check that one out for sure.

  49. Cosmo Cricket have me enthralled by their collections, I can't wait for the typewriters.
    You look to be having a blast, thank you for keeping us informed and he great pictures.

  50. Pick one favorite? That's a tough one. Right now I'm torn between Amelia and Going Coastal. I sure would love to go to quilt market some day.

  51. Wow-they were all nice but if I had to pick one it would be from Fig Tree Quilts Butterscotch and Rose but the solids were nice too. We could all use those!

  52. Definitely Circa 1934! I can't wait to get some of those typewriter keys!! I also really like some of the prints in Children at Play from Sarah Jane, though I wish she didn't have so much gender stereotyping in her prints. I would have loved it even more if the hopscroth prints came in colours other than pink, and the kids play rocket models included some little girls too. Can't wait to see what else you'll show us! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  53. The Heirloom fabric from Joel looks very interesting. Hope you are having a whole lot of fun. Thank you for the opportunity towin.
    Mary

  54. I know it's barely spring but I had to peek at what was behind the Art to Heart picture. I like both the Jingle all the Way fabric lines but while the deep reds and icy blues of the Icy line are great, I am leaning towards the earthy green and gold tones of Fir Tree. Thanks!

  55. So hard to choose–really love Cluck, Cluck, Sew patterns!!! If I'm picking fabric, it would be Ruby, followed by Kona Solids.

  56. I love seeing the Market photos. I like the Ruby fabric. Of course, my very favorite is the 3 Sisters fabrics. I seem to love everything they make.

  57. Favorites??? How could I choose a favorite? It must be so much fun to be at Quilt Market,seeing all the new lines of fabric and meeting all the designers. Well, since I must choose, I will say the Kona solids — the possibilities for these fabrics are limitless, as the colors are so yummy.

  58. Well… if I have to choose a favourite it would be the Kona solids. I love the crisp, cleanness of the colours and the fabric is great to work with.
    (supermomnocape at yahoo dot com)

  59. I so appreciate news from the show – thanks much! And my favorite would be Joel Dewberry's Heirloom. Thanks again.

  60. I would love to see the Patty Young fabrics and designs up close. Thanks for sharing. What a fun place to be!

  61. I love the Kona cottons but will have to say Fig Tree. What a wonderful post, very informative and so fun to put faces with names, see their booths…just wonderful!

  62. Hi everyone!
    IsnΒ΄t it wonderful how 3Sisters always comes up with such beautiful fabrics in the most gorgous colours! Quilting wouldnΒ΄t be the same without it.
    And what a coincident – I am an architect myself and I would love love, love to get my hands on those fabrics with the architectural drawings. The combination with roses is wonderful! – I think that could make a quilt just for me (IΒ΄ll share for cuddling up with my loved ones of course!!)
    Looking forward to mor news!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Anke

  63. That's a hard one….I love all the fabric lines you showed. Heirloom looks really fun and I always love Joanna's fabric!

  64. All the fabrics are great…
    My favorite today is fig tree quilts.
    Have fun!

  65. they all look wonderful! I especially like Aneela Hoey Sherbit pips. The Kona solids are very inviting too! Thanks for sharing. I wish I could be there, Mary

  66. I love Ruby by Bonnie and Camille. I have loved every line of theirs so far. Thank you for posting from Market. I am enjoying it. Take care and God bless, Cory

  67. I love anything 3 sisters! I do love Ruby and the new fig tree line looks beautiful! So many choices! Thanks for sharing and tweeting all these pictures!

  68. Thanks for sharing the great photos! My favorite collection that you showed today is Joel Dewberry's new collection, Heirloom.

  69. Thank you for sharing so much of Market! Love all the pictures πŸ™‚ My favorite has got to be Amelia though …can't wait to get my hands on that happy fabric!

  70. I always love 3 sisters but am looking forward to what Cabbage Roses… looks so vintage.

  71. As a momma it is not nice to pick favorites! LOL.. but those Kona solid ice cream cones look good enough to eat! Which is something I'm always saying about fabric.. good enough to eat.. scrumptious.. and yummy!

  72. From those you've shown in this post, I really love the 'Children at Play' by Sarah Jane fabrics. Those are just adorable. I think there could be some of those finding their way to my house. With a granddaughter now who is 3 yrs old and a grandson on the way soon, I could see these fabrics making some very cute stuff for them.

  73. Thanks for all the pictures. It's so much fun to see what's happening. I love the 3 sisters lines. I know this one will be exquisite too.

  74. Very hard to decide on just one – but if I must choose, I will say Jingle All the Way. I do love Christmas fabrics.

  75. Wow, what to pick….Cosmo's pretty cool, Kona is always great and anything Amy…I can go on and on and on.

  76. I am so jealous, that looks like a blast to be at! I think my fave is Going Coastal, what a fun line. All of them of course look amazing though πŸ™‚ Enjoy your time in SLC.

  77. I'm intrigued by Cabbages & Roses (new to me) but I love anything by 3 Sisters so am sure to find something to make with their Etchings line.

  78. O! I really like the Going Coastal by Crazy Old Ladies… The colors are different than many of the new lines…and most importantly…it's 'cause I'm a crazeee OLD lady, meeeself!
    And, I LUV that fat quarter bundle tooo!

    hugZ,

  79. Thanks for all the great photos. Love the Hopscotch, balancing act. If they took Tai Chi, they'd be standing upright, on one foot!

  80. Oh the Market was just a few miles away from me but alas I couldn't go!! Darn not open to public!

    I am really looking forward to Camille's new line! I also enjoy seeing all of the different ones that you had to show πŸ˜€

  81. Hands down it would have to be the Art to Heart line. Also love the 3 Sisters fabric line. Love seeing all the new eye candy!

  83. I love 3 Sisters' Etchings – I have to say that's my favorite from today's post. Thanks for the chance to win.

  84. I'm intrigued by the colors behind Eric & Julie of Team "Cosmo Cricket." Fig Tree has a close and oh so familiar second with Butterscotch & Rose. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

  85. Was so happy to finally see Katie Hennagir's new "Little One Organic"
    fabric. Katie and her Mom Sarah have a quilt shop in our area.

  86. I think the Kona solids are speaking to me. Those icecream cones are too cute! Thanks for the chance to win!

  87. Mmm, tough choice! I think I'm really looking forward to going coastal by crazy old ladies. Such a different line, although I always love anything fig tree!

  88. My favorite, or at least the one I am anticipating getting my hands on the most, would be Sarah Jane's Children at Play. I love her illustrations, and am so excited to see her new line in person. Thanks for the chance to win.

  89. Love the bright, fun colors and designs of Amelia. And I always love those Kona solids. Thanks for the chance!

  90. Hard choice as some of the ranges are fabulous.

    My favourite has to be Going Coastal as I'm a waterbaby at heart but I really want to see more of Etchings as this is probably going to be the first 3 Sisters range I'm going to like

    Rosanne

  91. Beautiful bundle for the giveaway..uses more greys which I'm into lately. I'm anxious to see more of the Butterscotch and Roses by Fig Tree…I love anything from them it seems! πŸ™‚

  92. I love Ruby! It is my birthstone, so I am partial to anything named that. I also LOVE the FQ bundle you are giving away of Etchings. Pink and gray is my favorite color conbination!

    Sandy A

  93. I love the look of Christina & Kate of Moda's newest designer Cabbages & Roses – Northcote Range; light and bright just in time for summer

  94. My favorite is the Etchings bundle! The Sarah Jane fabrics are very sweet and the bright colors of Amelia are just right for summer sewing. Thanks for sharing!

  95. Love the Butterscotch & Rose from Fig Tree. They are a favorite of mine anyway. Cosmo Cricket has a cute booth. Thanks for taking us along with you to Market.

  96. I am such a lover of fig tree quilts, that I must say butterscotch and rose but cabbage and roses is a close second. thanks for sharing all the fun of market..Donna

  97. Well they are all very pretty but on this dreary morning I loved seeing Aneela Hoey's stuff. I'm really drawn to her the colours she choses.

  98. Butterscotch & Roses! That's my very favorite. Thanks for the sneak previews. Anyone have a bib for my drools?

  99. I really like the joel dewberry heirloom fabric.

    but seeing your generous give away, I think that top fabric from etchings would look great in my newly painted grey bedroom

  100. Fig Tree Quilts – Butterscotch & Rose – I just can't get enough Fig Tree fabrics. Thanks for a peek at QM. Wish I was there.

  101. My favorite line you are showing on this post: Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree. Such elegance.

  102. Amelia looks fresh & fun and I'm really excited to see more of Patty's Grand Bazaar-only had a peek in your photos

  103. Wow, I love seeing all the new fabrics! I'm really looking forward to Ruby πŸ™‚

  104. Everything is soooooo pretty! But I have to say I am most looking forward to Sarah Jane's new line, Children at Play. I have nieces and nephews that will definitely be benefiting once this comes out!!
    Thanks for the chance to win. πŸ™‚

  105. I'm just crazy about Cabbages and Roses. I love the small flowers, the stripes and I like her dress. Thank you for all your wonderful photos.

  106. I would have to say Cabbages and Roses. I've always loved that english garden look and boy she sure knows how to capture it. I've saved every British magazine she's ever been featured in. Thanks for the opportunity. Karen.

  107. Love those Kona Cotton solids. But the new Etchings bundle is to die for!

  108. I love Patty Young's fabrics – I am drawn to the large and bright prints – don't know what to do with them but just love to look at them. Gina in Minneapolis

  109. Really, I have to watch my card, as pulling it out will make me happier than my bank account! ;^}

  112. Well, dang, I think I missed the deadline…Blogger was out yesterday ALL DAY and our internet service here in Utah (about 40 miles north of SLC) has been out all day, 3 cities!!!…*sigh*, just came back up. Ah well, all the same, I really love the Kona Solids, I want the entire collection!!!

  113. I just love anything Fig Tree!…..and I'm also a big fan of anything by 3 Sisters. (As they say, sooo much fabric and so little time!)

  114. I like jingle all the way the kona solidd. I want to make a quilt with all solids next. Thanks for the giveaway.

  115. So many quitting superstars all in one spot. Amazing! I would love to enter to win that fabric. Thank you!

  116. So tough to choose. The Kona Solids look delicious. The Heirloom Citrine colorway is yummy. too. I have to say, though, that if I can only pick one, I really want to run my fingers over that Etchings line … πŸ™‚ Pat

  117. I'd have to pick the Kona Solids as my favorite displayed today – love those soft sherberty colors & solids are so versatile!

  118. I would love to have that collection of kona cottons! I always need more solids in my collection! Did you see Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet-she is my current fav designer and has the new line Sew Cherry this market-would love to see pics of her booth!

  119. So many fun and elegant lines, but I have to say Ameila is calling out to me. Thanks for the pics!!!

  120. Butterscotch and Roses if my favorite of the moment, but that could change really quickly if I won the Etchings FQ Bundle!!!
    Thanks for showing us all this great eye candy!

  121. The Kona looks adorable and I think I'll have to have a second look at Coastal, it looks beautiful and fresh

  133. I really like the Cluck Cluck Sew patterns. Somehow never noticed them before your post.

  134. I am just nuts for anything from the lovely ladies from Cotton Way! I am counting the days until I can get my hands on Ruby.

  135. I am so very excited about Sarah Jane's new fabric line. I've loved her art for quite a while and am very excited to see her designing fabric–especially her boy lines. There simply adorable!

  136. Love the Fig Tree photo with the appliquΓ© quilt–love, love. Looks like it's Strawberry Fields. Is that right? That 3 Sisters bundle looks awfully good too…….

  137. Oh……my favorite has to be Butterscotch and Roses by Fig Tree Quilts! Sure wish I was there with you.

  138. Okay I LOVE Bonnie and Camille and can't wait for RUBY…. BUT… I love Going Coastal. I really want to see that in person!!! AND, I want to go to the beach because of that fabric line!!!

  139. The pictures are small but I have seen Ruby and am intrigued. I'll take Kona solids any time. But I'm most intrigued to see your giveaway bundle as my background is in architecture.

  140. Looks like you are having a Great
    time at Market! I think my Fave
    is Butterscotch & Rose by Fig Tree.

    And I am sure I could find room for
    the FQ bundle of Etchings!

  141. For sure would have to be that Ruby line. So excited for their new line to come out, just love it! Thanks for all the market info. it really is great!

  142. The Fig Tree fabrics make my heart go pitter patter each time and this is no different from your description.

  143. Ruby is absolutely my favorite! You all have been making me drool looking at all of the lovely photos you've been posting to twitter. Thank you for allowing us to experience it all with you.

  144. Is it too late to enter? Well, I want to leave a comment anyways! I love the quilt pattern behind Bonnie and Camille. I'm working on a Lemoyne star quilt right now, and that looks like it might use similar pieces? This might be the most excited I've been about a quilt pattern, especially one with such a traditional look. Looking forward to hearing more about it!

  145. Love Kona and Figtree, but I think Ann Griffin's 'Francesca' has won my pick this time.

    Love all 3 Sister's fabric, thank you for the chance.

  146. I always love Joel Dewberry's lines, but I am most excited about Sarah Jane's. Thanks for the super photos! Almost feels like I'm there…almost.

  147. So many lovely fabric lines, but I think my favorites are the Veranda fabrics by Amanda Murphy for Robert Kaufman! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  148. To select just one, ooohh….. that is difficult. At this moment the line that speaks to me and is making my heart beat a bit faster is the Treasures line by Shabby Chic. What's not to love!

  149. Im a Kansas Troubles fan so I have to go with the Cattails & Clover although the Simple Stitches collection of Pat Sloan almost won me over!

  150. I love anything 3 Sisters, so Etchings has me intriqued. Of course the incomparable Kate Spain's new Terrain is pretty awesome, too!

  151. Wow so many creative ideas and crafts….where to begin. Love fig tree….oh the iron board cover……see

  152. I once met a lady in Salt Lake City,
    Who looked at me and took great pity,
    "You live in Australia,
    Oh what a failure,
    I'll just have to mail ya,
    Some lovely paraphernalia,
    Just because you are so witty!"

    I love Ruby the best. Xxoo.

    nigel.tanya@bigpond.com

  153. Wow, I love everything! If I had to pick favorites though, I think I'd say either Cape Ann or Shabby Chic – gorgeous!
