I am back from Quilt Market and am buzzing with excitement and inspiration over what I saw! I had a list of things to look and can't wait to share all of the new fabrics, books, patterns and other quilting goodies with you. Here are some photo from some of the booths that i enjoyed and schoolhouses I attended.
The long awaited Soul Blossoms from Amy Butler has finally come out for the world to see on fabric - and I can't wait for these to arrive in the shop! The every beautiful Amy showed off her line in everything from quilts to pillows, handbags and dresses to raincoats, even decoupaging a table as decoration for her booth. One of my favorites was this simple concept in a quilt...
Large blocks of fabric were pieced as the base and the surface was covered in randomly placed yo-yos of all sizes! This one a trend that we picked up on at the show - dimensional embellishments on quilts. You will see flowers, ric-rac, buttons, prairie points and more creating texture and dimension on quilts.
Buttons and ric-rac - sweet!
I'll post more photos tomorrow. Perhaps I'll be saving the best for last!
