After schoolhouse and sample spree I have to admit I was exhausted. Thanks to a parade, rain, and construction it took us an hour to get from our hotel to market….grumpa bear was out!
This year we only had one day to make it through the floor of market so it was a rush but we had a blast! I tried to snag as many pics as possible but I missed a few that I wish I had gotten.
Windham has some fan-TAS-tic lines of fabric coming out. EEEEEKKK, I’ve got bundles of the ones below and have already been plotting what I’ll make.
Mendocino by Heather Ross, Paper Obsessed by Heather Givans, and Good Hair Day by Kim Andersson
Carolyn Friedlander previewed her newest line Carkai at market and it did not disappoint! I got a chance to make some earrings to match her outfit and wall! Her new patterns are seriously amazing. Maybe one of these days I’ll take on the challenge of needleturn applique!
Art Gallery always has the most inspiring and interactive booths at market. I seriously could spend hours looking at all the projects!!!
Petal and Plum by Bari J., Chalk and Paint by Caroline Hulse, and Paperie by Amy Sinibaldi
Below are a few of my all-time favorite booths to stop in. Alison Glass had her new knit line featured which is to die for! Can’t wait to make garments with it. Sassafras Lane has two amazing new monthly clubs designed for 2016 and I’m on board! I may have already started the BOM and cut the first mini club of the month. The Tula Pink booth was so fun and colorful!! We loved grabbing a copy of her new coloring book and getting a sneak peak at her new notions. Shannon Brinkley is a sweet friend of mine who is a local Texas gal. She has her first line coming out this spring! I think I may have squealed a little when I saw her booth. And of course Domestic Strata had her ever amazing quilts and bag patterns up. Her hand quilting is amazing. Just amazing!
Moda has the coolest set-up at market. They are all in a U and its easy to make it to all of them and see everyone! I just think their designers are the sweetest of sweet can be! I love sweet Vanessa and of course I’m a sucker for a mother-daughter duo of A Quilting Life! Their new lines are swoon-worthy!!!
Little Miss Sunshine by Vanessa Goertzen, Valley by A Quilting Life, and Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille
Wasn’t it all gorgeous!!!
I come home from market on an inspiration high and want to create as soooooon as I get home.
And then there are a few days to recover from all the overstimulation!
Can’t wait to show you some of the fun things I’ve made since market!!!
