Some of my favorite things from Quilt Market

I’ve had a few questions posted about what Quilt Market is and what  Sarah and I were doing all weekend, so here’s my quickie explanation. Quilt Market is a trade show where everything that could possibly be sold at a quilt store is put on display, plus there was an utterly breathtaking display of quilts in a museum type setting. Shop owners, manufacturers, distributors, designers, and a few lucky bloggers showed up for Market this year. 

If you don’t fall into that category, you could (and should if you love fabric) attend Quilt Festival which is going on right now in the same location. It is open to the public, has many classes, the same amazing quilt show, and was highly recommended by everybody we talked to.

All weekend long I shared instagram photos of things I found inspiring. Sometimes I was posting every few minutes. {by the way, I was only using my phone and Sarah’s photos turned out way nicer. Her blog post is here}

In case you’re not on instagram, here’s some of what you missed:

This new iron has little feet that it sits on (horizontally) when you're not using it to press something. Genius! www.oliso.com

Loads and loads of trim.

And of course, lots of beautiful quilts. We saw lots of hexi’s.

So that’s about all I can upload here. I came home yesterday so totally inspired to sew, design, and just go CREATE!

Wishing you the same,

  1. All your photos are brilliant, I especially like the one of the horses. Would you know where the pattern is available from? I have 5 granddaughters, who I think would love them

    1. Thank you for the compliment Ellice. I was only using my phone and Sarah’s photos turned out way nicer. Her blog post is here: https://bluesusanmakes.blogspot.com/2012/10/quilt-market-continues.html

      About the darling horse pillows, that pattern is called "Dala Horse" made by Skipstone Creative (skipstonecreative.com). I think they’re only available in quilt shops right now, but you could write to the designer Kirsten through her site. She is very nice. We chatted with her for quite a while! Thanks for commenting!

  2. Seems like there is a real mid century vibe going on. As a survivor of the 1950’s I felt a wave of nostalgia wash over me. That time was a very complex time of change glossed over with a veneer of happy families, but still I like the look of the decor. I do have a place in my heart for captain’s chairs and white bubble glass lamp bases. I love being able to update the look and mix and mingle it with newer more contemporary influences. The fabric was especially fun, I always loved the futuristic space alien motifs….Here’s to all the Purple People Eaters fans out there.

    1. I totally agree Ellen. Love mixing new and retro. Did you see Melody Miller? Love her style plus she is a doll in person too. Thanks for stopping by!
