  165. Love seeing all the gorgeous fabrics and wonderful items made with them. And the booths – especially love Tula Pink's!

  166. Thanks for all the photos, I can't wait to get a closer look at the new Tula Pink Acacia and Moda's Basic Grey Sweet Serenade!

  167. I really love the black, white and yellow quilt…my college colors! Enjoyed each of the fabric collections and would love to own some of those beautiful pieces.

  168. Like so many other commenter, your photos of all the things happening and booth photos… It was great – thanks for bringing us along for the ride!

  169. What amazing sight! All those amazing quilts and fabrics to chose from. It's too hard, but if my life depended on it to chose one it would have to be Tula Pinks wonderful butterly quilt and all her beautifully designed fabrics. I think she is truly gifted and whats even more better would be an opportunity to win something considering today the 21st is my birthday. That would be the best birthday ever. julie

  170. Thank you for all the photos you shared from quilt market. Also for sharing the video on Tula Pink threads. All the colors are so inspiring. Can't wait for you to have in stock. Thank you also for the opportunity to win something. Happy Sewing

  171. Thanks for all the wonderful photos. Many great fabrics! I like Basic Grey's Sweet Serenade. Love the coral/teal combo. I've been seeing a lot of coral in fashion.

  172. Loved the video and photos and especially watching the Moda designers fumble through not reading the emailed directions for the Schoolhouse project!!

  173. I am so anxious to see the american jane line. I did not realize it was coming out. That is my favorite part of the blog…finding out what is coming out!

  174. I have loved looking at all the photos of Spring Market! Being able to see all of the new fabrics and seeing the different play of colors in the quilts gives me so many ideas and makes me feel like I am there! Dee

  175. I love to see all the exciting new fabrics that are coming!! The booth displays are so inspiring! I Need to go sew up the fabric in my stash to make room for new fabric!!

  176. I love the schoolhouse videos and seeing all the fabrics coming in the next few months. Love the new American Jane, Tula ( of course) and V and Co. Thanks for sharing it all with s and a giveaway too

  177. From your market coverage, I enjoyed seeing the quilts made with new fabric collections (such as Sandy Gervais of Pieces from my Heart showing off her new line, Soho Chic!). I enjoy seeing booth photos with the names of people in the photos included – it makes the "trip" more personal to me. Though I do not applique, the photos of the fantastic applique quilts is tantalizing me into wanting to make one. And, I do like seeing the photos of authors along with the quilts from the books. mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  178. Well, I have been all over the web looking for pictures of market, trying to see some of my friends from Australia and I gotta tell you that I loved your entire coverage and recap of each day. You photos far and away exceed anything I could find anywhere else on line. The thing I loved most was that you covered it so beautifully and so fun that I almost feel as though I was there, minus the sore feet, LOL. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Hugs…

  179. I, like most, liked nearly everything shown and experienced great jealous feelings for not seeing it in person! I think one of my favorites were the yellow and gray Matilda (Timeless Treasures) by Alic Kennedy.

  180. I've loved all the amazing displays but most of all I have loved the smiles on everyones faces and how friendly they seemed!
    I so wish i could come.
    P.S. I'm from New Zealand

  181. I always look forward to your coverage of market – you show all the designers and new fabric lines, it's the next best thing to being there myself. Thanks to all of you!

  182. I love seeing all the creative, beautiful quilts that were displayed at market!! Can't wait to see all the fabric when it arrives!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  183. I loved watching the video of Moda's schoolhouse. I sent the link to several friends. As for fabric I loved Laundry Basket Quilts, Fig Tree and Pam Kitty Picnic.

  184. I always love designs by Basic Grey and their new Serenade line is no exception! I love the colors and prints in this line!

  185. ooooo how to choose, I think it comes down to Heather Bailey's booth and Dear Stella's Whales just beautiful. But I also loved Camille and her Scrumptious collection as well as angela's walters Legacy. I have to stop there or I'll keep finding more things I love πŸ™‚

  186. I don't know if seeing all those gorgeous booths makes me happy or sad. It is wonderful to see all the new lines of fabric, but so upsetting that I can't go to market each year and experience that myself. Every photo was amazing and makes me inspired to sew something new. If I can only pick one, my choice would be Pot Luck by American Jane. Thanks for the giveaway and plezzzz take me with you next time you go. haha.

  187. Loved seeing the booths and the designers! And of course the new fabrics and patterns, and the YouTube video was great!! Next best thing to being there!

  188. I love all the photo's too! I feel like I got to see a lot. I'm excited for Pam Kitty! But there's SO MUCH GOOD STUFF!!

  189. Thank you for sharing your trip to market!
    It's been interesting seeing the colorful booths and putting faces to the names of the fabric designers.
    Tough to make a choice but my favorite is the Summer block quilt.

  190. I love, love, love Anne Sutton's Woodland Christmas BOM. It is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing quilt market, it was almost like being there!!

  191. SO excited to see that new American Jane collection. Gah! And welcome back home to Austin, where all of a sudden, it is summer.

  192. Its tough to pick a favorite. I did, however, purchase the pattern "Painted Ladies" from Fig Tree Quilts as a result of reading your posts. It is so pretty and looks really simple to make. Thank you for the chance to win.

  193. So hard to pick just one… but I've loved Lakehouse Fabrics for a long time. Something about the vibrant colors in their current lines that attracts me! Thanks for keeping us up to date. It was almost like being there!

  194. Loved all the pics! Makes us feel like we're there (and ideas from all the creativity are dancing in our heads!) btheisen58 (at) gmail (dot)

  195. My favorite thing you showed us from market was the Tula Pink butterfly quilt with her new Arcadia line.

  196. I really enjoyed seeing the booths and the designers. Your little interviews were fun too. Seeing all the quilt displays helps us almost feel like we were with you!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  197. I love seeing all the creative displays. So many talented people in one place. Must be inspiriping. Wish you could just bottle it and sell it to the whole world.

  198. It was wonderful to see all those gorgeous quilts and the wonderful fabric that I will be able to buy soon at my local quilt shops. Thank you for giving me a preview of what will be coming.

  199. My favourite would have to be the Schoolhouse Youtube video – thank you so much. After a busy morning at my market stall, it was so wonderful to sit and enjoy and get to know a little better the Moda designers. I now know that Lissa writes long emails, and the designers are so busy creating they don't necessarily read them. Brave Camille, holding the fort (with Jarom's help) and manning the Bonnie and Camille Booth, and Edyta's heartfelt message a wonderful finale. I'm sure I'll be watching it again, just as I do my favourite movies. Thank you to the whole FQ Shop team for providing so many wonderful images and sharing your spring market experience with us all.

  200. I love EVERYTHING about the experience — the new fabric and patterns, and the displays.

    Absolutely wild about the striking Michael Miller display — would love to do some of that striping on the walls of one room or perhaps curtains. Would pass on the swan though :o)

  201. wow so many!
    Cluck Cluck Sew's Castle Wall quilt, It's Sew Emma's new patterns, Bunny Hill's Jubilee and Celebration collections are so sweet! and I adore anything Riley Blake…and Lori Holt is so much fun. good job with her Row Along–very cute.

  202. I love all the pics, and I especially love the quilt to the right of Sandy Gervais: hope you carry it in the shop!

  203. I love seeing all of the new fabric lines . . . but I also love seeing pictures of the designers themselves, since I've never met any of them in person.

  204. How could I not love the huge bird embroidered on the wall in Heather Bailey's booth. And Tula Pink's booth was to die for. Made me want to move in!
