Spring Quilt Market 2011: Robert Kaufman

I will admit that I have been putting off these posts because there is just so much to write about! The folks at Robert Kaufman had tons of new stuff to show at market and were very excited to share it all. One corner of the booth featured Kaufman’s Kona solids and the quilts created [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit – Tula Pink

Tula Pink had a gorgeous booth at market — check out the columns which match the colors in the new collection. The new collection is called Prince Charming and comes in four coordinating colorways: Coral, Honey, Olive, and Indigo. There are 30 prints on quilting cotton, nine on voile, and four on laminated cotton. Coral: [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Renaissance Ribbons, Oilcloth by the Yard

So, I’m not sure the next two companies technically fall into traditional True Up coverage, but I’m calling it close enough! Renaissance Ribbons probably provide most of the woven jaquard and fancier ribbons that you see at your local fabric store. They license designs from popular designers like Sue Spargo and Kaffe Fasset and their [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit — Joel Dewberry and Anna Maria Horner

Both of these collections have gotten a lot of press– you can see Laurie Dewberry’s recap of market including some more beautiful booth pictures here.  Anna Maria has also gone public with her Needleworks collection (there’s also a link there to a segment with the DIY Dish ladies explaining more details about LouLouThi). Kristen is [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit — Mark Cesarik

This was Mark Cesarik’s first booth at Quilt Market. He and his wife Cara started releasing designs under the Sew Bettie moniker on Spoonflower. FreeSpirit picked them up, and they recently released Calypso Swing, a line of violets, pinks, black and grey quilt weight cottons. Mark takes care of the surface design, and Cara takes [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit — George Mendoza, Dena Designs, Nel Whatmore, and Heather Bailey

Let’s keep going, shall we? While I didn’t get all of FreeSpirit‘s new offerings, this covers the last of the the designers-without-booths that I did mange to collect. George Mendoza‘s Color of the Wind is all about the blues, oranges, and purples. FreeSpirit has printed two of the prints in two colorways on their microfleece, [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit – Tina Givens, Jenean Morrison, and Erin Mcmorris

FreeSpirit will be shipping Tina Givens‘ Pernilla’s Journey this July. It’s a combination of quilting weight cotton and linen cotton blend prints and takes its inspiration from one of Tina’s favorite childhood books about a young girl who lived in a place called Parrot Jungle. Check out the whole line here (there is a great [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Rowan – Melissa White

You might have already seen Melissa White‘s line in your local quilt store, as it started shipping earlier this year. Fairlyte Garden is her first collection with Westminster/Rowan but her background in hand painted interiors, textiles, and frescoes makes it look like an effortless transition. The palette, is again, distinctly Westminster with five prints in [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Rowan – Kaffe Fasset Collective and Martha Negley

Westminster/Rowan had fewer of their designers on hand this year, maybe because Spring Market is a bit smaller? No matter, as their fabric offerings were, as usual, stunning (and their partner company FreeSpirit had plenty of designer booths to go around). The Kaffe Fasset Collective is comprised of Kaffe, Brandon Mably, and Philip Jacobs. While [...]
