Let’s get this post quilt market party started!
The best way to do this is to start with the Moda booth.
The theme this time in Portland was “Fall In Love With Moda”.
There were thousands of fabric leaves everywhere and in every color …
The ladies actually laser cut and then stitched all these leaves together. Proving that “Bella Solids” do indeed include all the colors of the rainbow!
I love this!!
There were coordinating baskets painted in all the fun fall colors at the top of every booth intersection …
And cute little wooden squirrel cutouts scattered all around the booth.
There was even a Me and My Sister quilt on one of the front pillars!
The little wood burned signs that name the quilts are adorable! That’s our new “Pin Curls” quilt hanging. It’s made using fat quarters and our new “Giggles” fabrics. The second quilt hanging out of the drawer is made using another new pattern called “On the 45″. This pattern features 2 easy projects that use the 45 degree angle on your ruler.
The Moda booth even won 2 awards!
The proud group accepting the awards from left to right are … Lissa, Holly and our fearless leader Mark Dunn.
I fell in LOVE with Moda again!! Wow … How many times does that make now ?? About 2 million!
More market news and photos coming soon!
Today we are the featured designers on the Jolly Jabber!
Make sure to click on over and see the newest post featuring our “Shades of Black” fabrics.
To celebrate we are having a give away …
You could win this layer cake!
Simply leave a comment below telling us if you would like another black, white and gray group from us. (I need some leverage with the boss again for my next idea!!)
The winner will be chosen sometime on Tuesday May 28th.
Good luck to all!
Portland Quilt Market was so much fun!
I have so much to tell you about, but first I must unpack.
We’re ready for International Quilt market in Portland, Oregon!
We’ll be out of the office for a few days and will check in whenever we get some down time.
See you again on the 21st!
Our newest group of fabrics is on the way to a store near you!
Be sure to visit your favorite local quilt shop or online store soon to get yours!
And if you need the new pattern …
You know where to get that too!
Hope you have as much fun creating with it as Mary and I have!
Our new “Giggles” fabric swatches are on the website!
You can’t find them anywhere else.
Moda will not even be making them public for another 5 days, but we got special permission to show them NOW!
Visit our website here to see all the new yummies.
Portland only 4 days away now!
The new free pattern for “Shades Of Black” is on our website now!
It’s called “Little Black Quilt” …
With every fabric group we offer a new free pattern! This one is super easy and goes together quickly.
To get your copy, simply click on the “patterns” button in the upper left box on this screen. When you get the drop down menu, click on “free patterns” then print and enjoy!
To go along with the new wave of “modern” quilting, Moda has come up with a new booth concept for the designers!
We got an email along with this sketch awhile back, asking if we would like to participate in this new booth design area …
We said yes! This should be really fun sharing a space with others!
We will be in booth #702 along with 11 of our designer friends …
Minick and Simpson
V & Co
Stop by to tell us what you think and let us know how you like the new hangout! The other traditional booths will still be around the Moda area, we are just the new test dummies.
Don’t worry, I will still take plenty of pictures!
Reporting from Quilt Market in 7 very short days …
Well it’s frozen over!
Mary has decided to learn to knit!
She worked on several projects at our recent Quilt Camp with the girls …
I thought at first that she just wanted to buy all the cute supplies, but she is actually using them.
For now she’s only doing washcloths …
And hot pads …
But this a a huge development and she has more yarn!
Soon she will be designing troll doll outfits like the ones I knit …
Talent runs rampant … LOL!
Thanks for all the support for Vickie’s new book!
So without further delay the lucky winner is …
Susan! I really like the way you utilized some of your scraps for this block – my goal is to use some of mine up, but I still want to make my quilts appealing – can’t wait to try this one.
I will be contacting the winner by email shortly.
Thanks again for joining in on the fun!
PS ~ Sorry for not getting this announced last night, I got too involved with Dancing With The Stars! Go Kellie and Derek!
