Spring Quilt Market 2016: Schoolhouse & Sample Spree

Greetings from Spring Quilt Market 2016! We’re coming to you from Salt Lake City, Utah, and have so many wonderful things to share with you – including today’s Schoolhouse and Sample Spree, and a giveaway for two brand new fabric bundles from Moda Fabrics! Woohoo!

Here’s our Fat Quarter Shop team – ready to take on Spring Market 2016 Schoolhouse!

Schoolhouse, informational sessions to reveal new products and fabric collections, took place today at the Convention Center, and FQS was front and center.  Not only did we attend several Schoolhouse sessions to bring you the inside scoop, we also participated in a few sessions!

Moda had several fun sessions during the day, and introduced the Moda Neighborhood – you’ll be hearing lots more about this fun block program in the weeks and months to come!

Big news from Cotton + Steel in the first Schoolhouse session of the day: Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. has designed a fabric collection for them – Les Fleurs!
The lovely and talented women of Cotton + Steel and their new designer Anna Bond!
Sew exciting, our first time to present at Schoolhouse!!  Kimberly presented the First Blush fabric and BOM quilt at the Windham Schoolhouse!
Kimberly shows how easy it is to make the fabulous blocks in the First Blush Quilt using the new Creative Grids Starburst 30° Ruler, designed by yours truly!

Kimberly shows off one of the quilts made with First Blush fabric and the Starburst Ruler – the pattern is call Kite Tails, and it is an upcoming Cut Loose Press pattern!

Tula Pink revealed the Ultimate Thread Collection today, and FQS will be one of the first to offer this collection!  Yeah #tulatroops!
Tula also revealed her new fabric collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics, Slow and Steady!  And like Chipper, she’s got a whole story behind it.

Kimberly also introduced the amazing Lori Holt in her Schoolhouse session!  Seeing her at Quilt Market was extra, extra, extra special.
Lori’s new buttons are literally as cute as a button!

Love Lori’s Cozy Christmas quilt!  The kit is available now, with a quilt along later in the summer!
Carolyn Friedlander shows off Essex Linen by Robert Kaufman Fabrics!
Here’s a peek at the Portage Lake Block of the Month quilt from Minick & Simpson!

Moda Fabrics has a new design pair: Franny & Jane! We love their new collection, Manderley.
Kimberly poses with Jane Davidson and Frances Newcombe.
Our quilty friend, Pat Sloan, spoke during an Aurifil session this afternoon.
This gorgeous and patriotic quilt, Star Spangled Liberty, was made by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. It was a treat to see it in person at Schoolhouse. The block of the month club is available now, so sign up today!
Kim Diehl and Kimberly Jolly during the Baby Bliss session!

Kim Diehl shared some fun projects in her Simple Whatnots session.  Such fun patterns and fabrics!

Ooh, look at Joanna Figueroa’s new fabric line, Chestnut Street!

This quilt is a stunner!

Another big event today? Sample Spree! Manufacturers offer brand new product offerings so quilters and sewists in the business can start making product samples and quilts before the fabric collections hit the stores.  Hundreds – if not thousands – of fabric lovers and quilting enthusiasts line up, rush in, and shop ’till they drop. Sew fun!

Here’s a photo of a portion of the long line to get into Sample Spree. 

Sample Spree time at the Moda booth!
