My favorite part of Quilt Market (besides Sample Spree and all of the new fabric designs) is having a chance to chat with some of my favorite fabric designers.
It was so nice to have the chance to see sweet Vanessa Christenson of V and Co. again, as we originally met at The Sewing Summit in October! :)
She had a booth at Market to promote her patterns and her new fabric line with Moda, Simply Color. I'm loving the chevron print, as well as all of the ombre choices! :)
Liesl Gibson of Oliver + S, who is just as sweet and personable as I had hoped for! After reading designer's blogs and following their successes, I always feel like I really know them (please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way!).
I have to say that Liesl's Straight Stitch Society Manifesto was a hit among all!
Anna Maria Horner and her stunning booth (I love all of her attention to detail)!
Anna Maria's newest fabric collection is Field Study Fabrics, I don't know about you but I'm loving the Moonlit colorway!
I am always in awe of Amy Butler and her creative abilities! It was a pleasure having the chance to see her again. The first time we met at Spring Quilt Market 2011 she asked when I was going to have a booth at Market for my patterns (I'm pretty sure I blushed!), which I thought was such a sweet gesture. She is so very gracious and really wants to get to know her customers at Market, which I think is great! :)
Amy's beautiful new fabric collection, Cameo. See the upholstered chair in the top right corner? I really need to pick one up at the local thrift store and upholster one for my sewing room. How fun would that be? :)
Joel Dewberry mentioned that he has a new fabric collection being released in the very near future. I can't wait to see what he has up his sleeve, as I love everything he does.
Tula Pink at her book signing!
Here is a glance at Tula's booth at Market. I loved all of the bright colors and unique quilt designs, not to mention that awesome tree chair! :)
