  1. Oh, it looks like such fun – so many amazing things to see! I know that the line I'm waiting for more than any other is Terrain. But in your photos today, Veranda caught my eye!

  2. I can't wait to see more of Hometown by Sweetwater. I just want to sit down and read all the places they used on their fabric! And I love the ruffly dress in the Izzy and Ivy picture!

  3. I love Hometown – really looking forward to that one! And Cape Ann is lovely. As is Ruby. As are so many others!!

  4. I wasn't sure what I was going to say by the time I got to the end to leave a comment because nothing was really grabbing me until I got to the photo of the Art Gallery booth – wow! That really got my attention. All those rich colours, with the patterns and plains. Love love love! In the same intense colour-saturated vein I'm so curious about AMH's new Loulouthi line, I want to see the prints in action, but they look really promising.

  5. Once again, very hard to pick just one but I would have to say Pat Sloan's Simple Stitches. Thanks for the give away.

  6. For me itΒ΄s definitely the Hometown line! I canΒ΄t wait to make a quilt of it! It would match so good to our Sweetwater "Make life" quilt!
    Thanks for that great giveaway and the great report of the quilt show!

  7. I'm in love with Hometown but I have to say, your photo made me curious about "Curio" – so I clicked on the link and now I have a new favourite – absolutely love it. Thanks for the market pics – it's so nice to put a face to the designer.

  8. So jealous…one day I will get to market! Keen to get a closer look at Hometown by Sweetwater…each range is better than the one before, if thats possible.

  9. Oh what fun everyone is having! Love, love love Amand Murphy's Veranda! Just so scrummy, who could resist all that lime and orange – reminds me of sherbet dib dabs! lol

  10. I love what I see! Wish I could be there.
    My favorite line in this day's post:
    Veranda by Amanda Murphy. I look forward to the patterns she is going to design with it.
    How wonderful to meet Sherri! And she is carrying a big designed by Stephanie Dunphy. When are you going to sell her patterns?
    Have a lovely third day!

  11. Hands down Hometown by Sweetwater…I always like everything they make…and YOU, your market report, sew far very good, oh yes, great camera shots, great text…thank you to pieces

  12. I'd still say that Sarah Jane's new fabric is my favorite, but I'm also looking forward to seeing more from Oliver + S. Ruby is also a favorite.

  13. Ithink I would love to get my hands on some of Rachel Ashwell's Treasures. I have been a shabby chic fan fow some time.

  14. That Veranda line by Kaufman looks amazing! I love you 'coverage' of Market… keep up the great work!

    There is so much coming that is just so beautiful.

  16. I love the new Hometown line from Sweetwater. Can't wait to touch it. Great review of the marlet.

  17. I love the juicy colors of VERANDA – can't wait to get some to play with!
    But that RUBY fat quarter bundle sure has me drooling!
    Thanks for a chance to win it!

  18. I saw it on a different blog, and the fabric line isn't coming out till the fall, but my favorite fabric line is the new William Morris line by Michele Hill. Gorgeous!

  19. Veranda! So happy and bright! Thanks for all of the great pics…sure would love to attend and see things in person.

  20. I am new to quilting and just overwhelmed by all your photos! I am looking around for fabric to make my first real quilt and I am smitten Loulouthi or Ruby!

  21. I'm loving Ruby the best but Veranda caught my eye too. Great Market reporting! Thx for all the pics. Crossing my fingers that I win!!

  22. I didn't see a fabric line that I didn't like:) Actually, can't wait to see more. I'm intrigued with Hometown by Sweetwater. Thanks for posting from busy market!

  23. Love the new Cape Ann line by Oliver+S but also the Shabby Chic Treasures which looks so soft and sweet. Thanks for all the pictures.

  24. The Sandy Gervais fabric looks awesome and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. I am a primitive or Civil quilter and so this line is so-o-o unlike me-but I loved the Oliver + S fabric line, Cape Ann. I see a lovely quilt for a grand daughter! Also liked Sandy Gervais "Late Blooms".

  26. The Izzy and Ivy dress pattern collection..My fingers are itching to sew some of those beautiful dresses!

  27. It's so hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say Ruby. Cabbage & Rose, Hometown and Etchings are also my favorites.

  28. my fave is Ruby by Bonnie and Camille (they are my absolute fave fabric designers) and winning this would be the ultimate prize!! And I have never owned a fat quarter bundle, so that would be a double sweetenter :O}
    thanks for all the awesome pics!!

  29. Lots of wonderful things to see here! Thanks for the continuing updates from market! My fave out of these here is Amanda Murphy's line. So vibrant and beautiful!

  30. Again, so many luscious fabrics, but at first glance, my favorite is Veranda. Love the bright colors.

  31. Thankyou for showing all the lovely booths at market. How can I choose just one. Well I do love Kathy Schmitz her new Towne Square Quilts looks lovely, her fire place in the booth is a hoot!!

  32. I really like Hometown — but I think I'd LOVE Ruby — Bliss was one of my all-time fav's and it looks like Ruby might take its place! Winning would be great fun! Enjoyed the pictures. . .

  33. I loved seeing all the displays & getting inspired, the one liked the most was Amanda Murphy's display of Robert Kaufmann's – Veranda. Can't wait to get my hands on that fabric….this time it will be something for myself….instead of one of my grand girls….BUT if I win the Ruby Fat Qtrs by Bonnie & Camille, then I can make matching dresses for the grand girls & their dolls! gr8life59

  34. Thanks for sharing!! I so wish I could be there. I just love P&B – Simple Stitches, and Robert Kaufmann – Veranda!

  35. What a great time you are having!!! It is a hard decision to make as to what new fabric to pick but Veranda and Late Bloomer are stunning.

  36. My favorite collection at this market is Prints Charming – Tula Pink. if it has to be one from your photos in this post… I'm really excited about the Art Gallery/Pat Bravo fabrics too!

  37. So many pretties to choose from! From what I can see, Hometown is my favorite with Ruby coming in a close second.

  38. So many beautiful fabrics – I love them all. Ruby looks delicious…Kansas Troubles Quilters Cattails and Clover I would also love – also for the delightful name!

  39. I cannot wait until I see all the fabrics in the Cattails and Clover. I love the colors used in Kansas Troubles. The colors look homey to me.

  40. WAY too many to pic a favorite! … one's I can't wait to see more of (close up and personal)? Fig Tree Butterscotch and Roses, Sandy G's line, the new Kansas Troubles line, …. I could go on, but you get the point. Thanks for doing such a great job sharing your experience at Market, safe travels home and thanks so much for a chance to win πŸ™‚ Laurie

  45. Wow, choices, so many glorious choices! After looking at the pictures of some of the new collections I hit on Rachel Ashwell's 'Treasure' and oh my gosh, the pastels just speak to me.

  91. This Market has so many gorgeous lines!! But being a Moda girl gotta say I love Hometown, Curio and Terrain!
    Etchings really has so many options. I love the BOM you have up with it, looking so sweet and soft, yet the darker colours could really be dramatic too.

  92. Loved seeing the photos!
    We have to choose only ONE? That is a tough thing to do, because I have a whole long list! Just one? I'm really eager to see Hometown in person.

  93. I really like the Late Bloomers line by Sandy Gervais. I actually love all the new fabrics, but this one is my fav.

  94. So difficult to choose, but I have to say that I just love Sweetwater's Hometown. Those tiny florals are so darling. Of course, I also love Bonnie & Camille. I thought Bliss was one of the best collections of last year, but they've certainly not disappointed with Ruby!

  95. Love seeing all the happenings at market it makes me feel like I'm there ( almost) the collection I am drooling over is Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic new collection Treasures. It looks so cozey I just want to make a quilt and wrap myself in it. Wish me luck!

  111. I really like the Cape Ann fabrics from Oliver and S .
    Quilt Market must be this amazing experience- so many lovely things to look at all at once.
    Thanks for the chance to win such beautiful fabrics.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  112. I found my self with my nose almost touching the computer monitor trying to see more of Amanda Murphy's Veranda collection. Love the bright colors!

  113. I knew the fabric line before I even saw the caption below the picture and that would have to be Sweetwater's Hometown Fabric line! I think it was really cool that they asked they followers to let them know what their hometown was and then put all those cities into a fabric line!! When they first started showing pics of the line, I saw my lil hometown city, Daly City, right there!! I couldn't believe it…I've always been a Sweetwater fan and am definitely a fan of their newest line…now don't get me wrong there are a ton of fabric lines at Market that I would just love to roll around in, okay maybe a lil TMI, but Hometown is my fav!!

  114. You have shown so many fun new collections! I am anxious to see Sweetwater's new collection. Thanks for sharing market with your posts!

  115. I would love to win the Ruby FQ bundle! My favorite collection of all that you have shown is Tula Pink's Prince Charming.

  116. I love Going Coastal – it's so different from anything else, and I really like the theme. Makes me think of vacation! πŸ™‚

  117. I love the new line Cape Ann by Oliver + S…I have two sweet grandchildren to sew for…thanks for all the wonderful pictures.

  118. The one that stuck with me was 'Children at Play' (Sarah Jane for Michael Miller). I love the parade of silhouetted children having fun. Hope it's a repeated border fabric!

  119. Ruby is a ggod one and I would lobe to have it but I think my favorite is Etchings! Gonna be a great year!

  120. Oh, I just hate it when someone asks me to pick a favorite fabric. I'm a fabriholic and love them all. I love everything Sandy Gervais, always, but I also like Ruby and Veranda a lot as well. Help!

  121. Love the basic grey booth,
    would love to win the ruby fat bundle those are adorable. Quilted fish are so bright and cheery too. Heck, Love them all.

  122. Loved all your pictures but Ruby is my favorite! Pick me! Pick me! (Please!)

  123. From today's pics my first choice is Veranda! followed close on by Cape Ann! I think I'm suffering from jealousy…would love to be there. Thank you for the pics and the peek at what's new!

  124. I would love to win the fabric! I had several new lines that I really like, Terrain, Hometown, Prince Charming…oh the poor credit card is going to get a working! Thanks!

  125. Oh my…such goodness here! I love the embroidery patterns from Penguin and Fish and I love Cape Ann…cant wait to see more of the line!

  126. How to choose when I love it all?? But my fave right now is Hometown by Sweetwater because I have a jillion ideas for using it!!! Pick me!!!

  127. Treasures looks like totally me and my personality! But Veranda looks like how I am feeling with the beautiful weather we are having today!

  128. Just a lovely blog, and so many pics of the market! I loved piece o cake fabrics and the quilts. OH MY!!!!

  129. Thanks for all your great reporting at quilt market. Feel like I was there!! I love Ruby! Can't wait to see Sweetwater Hometown also.

  130. My fav new lines will probably be Sweetwater's new stuff or Amanda Herring's new line – They've both been this year's favs! Thanks for the chance to win!!!!

  131. I love the embroidery patterns from Alyssa of penguin & fish..so sentimental. My mom ws given a baby shower & all guests embroidered a quilt block of baby animals. Most guests didn't know how to embroider and the stitching was done on sheets/pillow case. I used 30"s prints to assemble the blocks in a quilt much like the one displayed in the booth.

  132. Wow, I like so many. Isn' it always that way? I would pick Treausures by Shabby Chic; love those soft, worn colors.

  133. I would have to say amelia is my favorite collection. The hopscotch board pattern was just perfect for this line….If I win the amelia collection, I would definately have to buy the pattern as well! Veranda was a very close second place also!

  134. I'm loving the pink and black/white fabrics in the pic of Mark Cesarik.

    Also, I just went to the 80s prom in NYC last night, so the 80s party you had looks very familiar. I hope it was fun!

  135. I really like Etchings, a lot. But OMG! I really love Ruby! My granddaughter just walked up and said, "I love this so much!" We are in agreement.Thanks

  136. Oh, I can't pick just one. I'm excited to see Butterscotch & Rose, Ruby, and Summerhouse just to name a few!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  137. WOW! Quilt Market looks like so much fun!! I have always loved Rachel Ashwell and can't wait for the release of her new line!! Thanks for the chance to win such beautiful fabrics!

  138. Ruby fat quarters, OMG!
    Ruby and Aqua! My colors!
    (did I tell you that ruby red and aquamarine are my favorite colors?)
    Irene from Amsterdam, sipping that ruby wine 8^}

  139. Hmmm, Ruby should be in my Hometown, but Etchings in my Circa 1936 won't help in the Grande Finale. The Penguins & Fish won't be attending the Sweetwater arrival, but I've got a Bee In My Bonnet for some Sweet Cherry or maybe some Fig Tree. That is the Basic Grey, I mean, question. Does that help? Hometown!!

  140. You took excellent photos, I have enjoyed looking at each and everyone! It is like going to gorgeous quilt shops!!! My favorite lines are "Sew Cherry" by Lori Holt and "Children at Play" by Sarah Jane. Oh, and I can't believe I won the previous giveaway!!! I am so excited, thank you β™₯

  141. Ruby is my definite favorite of all the fabrics I've seen I think. Thank you so much Kim or putting so many photos on Twitter this weekend so we can all feel part of the Market. I know you had a great time and you so deserved it.

  142. I really like the Sweetwater Hometown fabric, but Amanda Murphy's Veranda is great too. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Everything looks delicious!

  144. Hometown by Sweetwater is my favorite collection. But the new Cosmo Cricket line is up there with them too. Love all you are sharing. The pictures are wonderful. So inspiring.

  145. Oh man, so hard to choose a favorite. I love Little Apples, Hometown, and Ruby so much, but I think I'm most excited for Sara Jane's new line. Thanks for the chance to win.

  146. I love Late Bloomer by Sandy Gervais. I do consider myself a Late Bloomer, so this is perfect.

    So many gorgeous fabrics and my favourites right now are Ruby (swoon!) and Hometown.
    Thanks for the chance to win this special giveaway πŸ™‚

  153. I am excited about Veranda. It looks like a cheery line that you couldn't help but smile through the whole quilting process with that fabric under your needle.

  154. There are so many pretty fabrics that I have seen from market, but Ruby by Bonnie and Camille is my favorite.

  155. Every time I see Veranda by Amanda Murphy I stop and stare. Lokks so fun! I would love to see Ruby in person!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  156. I'm excited for Ruby and Prince Charming by Tula Pink- I have to say seeing all your pictures really makes me want to go to Market in KC next year!

  157. Ruby was my favorite yesterday AND today! Thanks for giving us a chance to win, and for posting the great information on Market!

  158. Isn't this like asking which is your favorite child?? (by asking which is our fave fabric πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    If I must…Veranda, Cape Ann, Late Bloomers…gotta it down to three.

    Thanks for the market pics!

  159. If Safari Sweet is as adorable as Alyssa's embroidery patterns, it may be my new favorite. Lots of great eye candy!

  160. I loved the new enchino prints, but of course I didn't buy any :(. But, knowing there was an 80's party explains shui saw so many strangely dressed women in downtown Salt Lake. Well, I hope it explains it.

  161. That Veranda looks like a lovely group, makes me want to redecorate the front porch setting area! Kathy Schmitz always is a favorite in needlework….loved that Peace on Earth quilt for Christmas.

  162. The Ruby looks so pretty! Love Sugar and Spice too! Thanks for sharing the fun— it's nice to be able to see some of what's coming soon! πŸ™‚

  163. I'd definitely have to say dress patterns were just brilliant!

    The fabric collection that is my favorite, however, would have to be
    Cape Ann by Oliver + S!!!

    I think it is adorable!!

    Thanks SO much for sharing all your extraordinary finds!!

  164. I LOVED all the stuff I saw from Riley Blake…. and I think Veranda looks so fun.

    Thanks for the chance to win. πŸ™‚

  165. Cattails and Clover!!!! I love my KT Fabrics..they are just bundles of inspiration and pick me up when I'm down! I LOVE KT!

  166. I have to say that Ruby is my favorite collection from market. The colors are just beautiful together.

  167. Do I ever want it?? And then some!!! LOL Yep, no shame here, I'm a fabric ho! LOL Seriously though, thank you so much for all that you shared from market. I so hope to go one day just to enjoy the show of so many fabric lovers in one spot … what electricity it must be πŸ™‚ There are several favorites I'm excited about seeing, but honestly, this post's showing of Oliver + S's Cape Ann line has to be my favorite from this market as I can see so many little dresses being made for my daughters with that line. Very cool! Thank you, again, for all the work you shared!

  168. I hadn't seen this line until just now when you posted about… but I'm really like Treasures by Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic. The colours are all so soft and soothing… makes you just want to touch them. I can just imagine a quilt made out of them and curling up under it.

  187. I can't wait to see the colors of Cape Ann by Oliver + S in person, they look sooo pretty in your pictures.

    Thanks for giving those of us that can't go a glimpse of the fabulousness that is Quilt Market!

  188. I just love all the Moda lines!! My favorites were Terrain (of course!), Etchings (love the architectural graphics), and Little Apples. Anne Sutton's Puttin' on the Ritz in gray is amazing too. Thanks for all the wonderful photos. It was just like being there without all the walking LOL!

  189. I've always loved Shabby Chic. I am so gloriously happy that she's now into the fabrics. It's like a revival for me.

  192. I'm loving LouLOUthi from Anna Maria Horner and Prints Charming from Tula Pink, oh and Little Apples from Aneela Hoey. Seriously, one collection!

  193. My favorite would have to be Sweetwater's Hometown Collection. I can hardly wait to start a project with those fabrics!

  194. Only pick one favourite collection… that is impossible! I guess favourites would be Veranda as I love the bright colour and Hometown fabric for the soft grey and bright reds.

  195. Great report and nice photos! My fave from this report is a tie between Cape Ann and Treasures. Awesome colors.
    Super amazing giveaway!!! Bliss was my favorite til I laid my eyes on Ruby – wow!!

  196. Cattails and Clover! What an exciting place to be. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures.

  197. I can't decide between Going Coastal which is appropriate as I live 20 miles from the Pacific or Cape Ann. All the eye candy is worth several visits to look at the pics again & again.
    Thank you for the opportunity.

  198. When I started quilting, I was drawn to subdued colors, but this past year beautiful, bright colors have been my choice for quilts. I was immediately drawn to Amanda Murphy's new line Veranda. I love it!

  199. There were many that caught my eye but I am looking at Ruby and I like it! It is so up my ally!

    Also wanted to thank everyone at the Fat Quarter Shop for keeping everyone posted about market. With out you the majority of us would never have seen all the on goings and the excitement!

  200. Nope, nu-uh, no way. You cannot make me pick only one. Seriously. I should never attend Quilt Market. I would be broke by the end. (Must haves: Cape Ann, Veranda, Hometown, Treasures, & Urban Zoologie.) Thanks for the chance to win!

  204. It's so hard to decide! I love the Ruby fabric collection. But, I also am in love with the new Tula Pink line, Prince Charming. I just can't pick one! And, who can resist the Hometown fabric?!

  205. Fig Tree's Butterscotch and Rose is the one I know I have to have, but Ruby does come in a very close second from Moda. Thanks!

  206. My all-time favorites are from the Bonnie and Camille Collection and I love the vibrant colors from My Sister and Me, but I've also found a couple of more that I'm interested in…Cape Ann and Shabby Chic.

  207. Oh I am so looking forward to our own quilt fest this week, but it was really exciting and your pics helped me to sample the electric atmosphere that these great times produces. Is it a build up of creativity let loose in one place that produces such an amazing charge?! Just love,love love it. Hope everyone gets their quilting batteries filled.
