Fall Quilt Market 2011: Coral Tree Fabrics

Oh, what an adventure it is trying to process and upload a video for the first time … I can’t believe I’ve never done it before. Well, while we wait for Youtube to make my awesome Amy Butler video available, I’ll share a couple booths from far-off lands from you. Kristen came across South Africa’s [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster/Rowan

{ photo by Kristen Lejnieks } I ran out of time at Quilt Market and failed to capture the rest of FreeSpirit/Westminster/Rowan‘s offerings (except for Amy Butler, the one and only video I managed despite plans to video everyone, coming up next!). Fortunately the new collections are well-represented on the web, so I’ll point you [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Jenean Morrison

Jenean Morrison had an insanely creative booth. So I would have given her the Creativity Award if Quilt Market hadn’t beaten me to it. It made me think “Is there anything fabric can’t do?” Also, I’ve compared fabric to music before (collections = albums, etc.) so it’s just so helpful when designers actually name their [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Art Gallery Fabrics

Here’s what’s next from Art Gallery Fabrics: Poetica¬†(above), in stores February 2012. Pat Bravo has been brining some rougher, more natural looking lines to her motifs, which I love. Summerlove has a warm-season palette befitting its name, and with lots of Tangerine, which happens to be the Pantone color of the year. It’ll be out [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Art Gallery Fabrics – Current Collections

Art Gallery Fabrics showed off their most recently released collections by Patricia Bravo with some magnificent, glowing, colorful displays. Their booth won second place in the double booth division, and I think you can easily see why from these photos. Thanks to Art Gallery Fabrics for sharing these! This pillow shows off Art Gallery’s Pure [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Clothworks

Brandi Frey, marketing coordinator for Clothworks, is one of my favorite Quilt Market people! I got to sit down with her again at this market, though it felt too short. Clothworks has some lovely new collections coming in Spring 2012. You can see all of them here. First, we have Robin by Erin Ries, a [...]
