Quilt Market- Part 1 {My Pattern is in a BOOK!!!}

May 29, 2012

I feel like I should be wearing a "I Survived Quilt Market" t-shirt!  :)  Quilt Market was held in Kansas City, MO this time around, and I had so much fun!  I'm planning to recap my experience for you (lots of photos, little text!), but first wanted to share what The Quilted Fish's Creative Consultants Design Team has been up to.  Let's just say we all know how to keep a secret!  ;)

A group shot of the Creative Consultants that were able to make it to Quilt Market.  From left to right: Robbie (my mom, aka honorary member), Jackie, Jana, Amanda, Kayce (Amanda's BFF), Brooke, Me, and Stephanie.

Okay, are you ready?  The Creative Consultants Design Team teamed up with The Quilted Fish and we debuted a book at Quilt Market- oh yeah!!!  The book is titled An Apple a Day, and includes nine projects for the daily life of quilters, sewists, and crafters.

This is the cover of the book (I want you to know what to look for in your local quilt shop!).  :)  Amanda designed the project on the cover, "Inside the Box", which is beautiful and handy sewing box.  I really need to make myself one of these!

Jackie designed this beautiful "Dare to Dream" necklace, which was a hit at Quilt Market, as The Quilted Fish's booth featured a make and take for shop owners.  Every shop owner had the chance to make one of these beautiful necklaces, that way they had an already assembled sample for when they get home.  Genius, right!?!

Jana designed this "Body and Sole" quilt, which is a great use for Rolie Polies (2.5" strips of Riley Blake fabrics).

Brooke designed this "Apples in the Orchard" quilt, which uses fat quarters.  I don't know about you, but I love finding quilt patterns that use fat quarters!  :)

I designed these fun and festive "Pick of the Bunch" herringbone placemats. They may look complicated, but I promise they are not!  :)

Stephanie designed this "Core Essentials" binder, which is full of zipper pockets and such to help keep you organized when on the go!

Julie designed this "Pack and Press" which is holds your cutting mat, rotary cutter, and opens up into an ironing surface!

Johanna designed this "Carry It All Along" bag which is a perfect solution to organization while in your home studio, and when traveling to a sewing class.

Last but not least, Sally designed this "Apple Blessings Mini Art Quilt", which is such a beautiful combination of quilting, hand embroidery, and embellishments.

An Apple A Day can be purchased at your local quilt shop, or directly from The Quilted Fish (online store).  If your quilt shop doesn't yet carry the book, make sure to ask for it by name!  :)

Before you go, here is a quick video debuting The Quilted Fish's new patterns and best sellers, enjoy!
