Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Parson Gray

Happy New Year! Well, I wanted to have the Fall Quilt Market posts wrapped up at least by the end of 2011 — two months of posts was already getting ridiculous! — but I ended up taking the four-day weekend seriously.

So, here are the first fireworks of the Quilt Market finale. Parson Gray, aka David Butler, had a really exciting booth for his debut fabric collection Curious Nature. Everything is so dapper and cool. And I can’t look at the lady mannequin without seeing a vision of Amy Butler’s head on it, can you? She was sporting her husband’s fabrics throughout Quilt Market which was so sweet. Get ready, because Curious Nature is coming out next month.

    Thank-you for all your posts from Fall Market 2011. I really appreciate the thoroughness, especially if it did run into 2012 a bit! I’m also glad that you took the 4-day weekend seriously too.

    Kim – thanks so much for the write-ups and the even better pics. I was at my first ever quilt market, and made a point of looking everywhere, but i also missed stuff, so I appreciated being able to see it again, or see what I missed, thru your posts.
    Best for 2012,
