Quilt Market 2014 Recap


Quilt Market also hosts a humongous quilt show!

Quilt Market also hosts a humongous quilt show!

I’m home! My quilt market fun is over for 2014. On Saturday I blogged about all the things Sarah and I did on day 1 – Friday, and now is my chance to show a few more of the fun events we attended, a few of the {many} inspiring sights, and giveaway a bag of quilt market swag!


On Saturday Sarah and I had our first book signing for Just For You. Everybody was so sweet and actually wanted to talk to us. I felt like a real celebrity (for just a few minutes).

Thank you so much to Daniar from Fat Quarter Shop who walked by and instagrammed this great picture. I didn’t get any pictures of the book signing myself, so I’m so glad to have this one. 

I spent the rest of Saturday wandering the isles, soaking in the inspiration. These pics show (starting from the top left) Anna Griffin and her sweet team (from Blend Fabrics), a pillow by Anna Maria Horner in her new collection Honor Roll, a spooky surprise in the Quilting Treasures booth, clever pouches in the Lecein/7 Isles booth, Heather Bailey’s adorable owls, Joel Dewberry’s gorgeous new rayon fabrics, a dress by Denise Schmidt, me ‘n Heather Valentine (of the Sewing Loft), and a cute bag in more Joel Dewberry fabrics.

On Sunday I got to help a whole bunch of ladies make a Foxy Cell Phone Cosy… one of the projects from Just For You. I adapted this project to use hand sewing and Fabric Fuse glue from Thermoweb so we could do it as a make & take. The felt was from National Non-wovens. I must admit that having Darlene Zimmerman come over and make one too made me extremely giddy. She’s one of my quilting heroes. Sarah had stepped away during that, so unfortunately I didn’t get a picture. 

After that I headed over to what I call the ‘church of quilts.’ About half of the convention center was an unbelievable quilt show (see the first picture on this blog post). And walking around over there is the extreme opposite of the showroom floor. It’s so still and quiet you could call it reverent. Perfect for spending time gazing at your favorite quilts. Like these:

These are just a few of my favorites. There was an exquisite collection of traditional quilts from all over the world that we were not allowed to photograph.

Lastly… at Quilt Market you get to take home quite a bit of swag. The icing on the cake, right? Would you like to win some of mine?

Here’s a bundle I put together for one lucky reader. It includes: 5 quilt patterns, a table runner pattern, a copy of Quilter’s World magazine, a few fat quarters and two charm packs, a package of Getta Grip clips from Dritz, some True Grips for your ruler, a kit from our Foxy Cell Phone Cosy make & take, a bottle of Fabric Fuse to make it, some Lo-Lo Lov solid moisturizer , and one of Elizabeth Hartman’s adorable pins (didn’t make it in the picture). All in a cute canvas bag from Passionately Sewn.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below and tell me who you would take to quilt market with you if you were going… your mom, sister, best friend? Then if you tell them about our little giveaway (like tagging them on fb πŸ™‚ ), you can come back and leave one more comment for a second entry. I’ll let random.org pick the winner in on the night of November 5th. Make sure you enter or leave your email address so I can contact you if you win.

*** This giveaway is now over. Congrats to the winner: Anne N!

    And my personal favorite…. "Yes, I know you want have lots of other fabric, honey, but do you really like THIS fabric?"

    I would take my father-in-law. Sounds odd, and he doesn’t quilt or sew, but he grew up as the third of nine children and spent a great deal of time helping his mom as she sewed and mended clothes.

  156. Candace Henderson says:

  214. smilingwoman1947 says:

    I would take my dear sister-in-law… we both quilt. We’ve attended local quilt shows together near here in South Carolina. She’s always been an inspiration to me and has encouraged me all along the way as I’ve learned to do new crafty and sew-y things.

  215. Barbara Neiwert says:

    That’s easy – I’d take my grandmother. She’s the one that introduced me to sewing about 50 years ago and she would be totally BLOWN AWAY by all the quilts, fabrics, designs, and variety. She not with us any longer so I can’t tag her, but she knows πŸ™‚

    I would take my daughter. She is 4 and likes to come with me to quilt shows and "helps" me quilt as well! (My husband and his paycheck are doomed!)

  225. Bonnijean Marley says:

    I would have a hard time choosing a companion. I might take one of my cousins who quilt, but I would probably take my daughter who has expressed interest in quilting.

  226. Janna Saeger says:

    I would take one of my quilting friends but it would be hard to choose.

  227. Anita Pankake says:

    Without question, I would take my sister-in-law. She began quilting about four years ago and has done beautiful work in between working and most recently being a full-time caretaker for my brother. My brother passed away last week; once the hubbub of the official paperwork and processing is complete, she will need other kinds of support. I am anticipating that her quilting will be among those — me too, of course!

  228. Cathy Hannon Druckemiller says:

    Difficult decision but I would take my friend Mary! We have been quilting buddies for 4 years and what a blast we would have! Next time Moe!

  233. Jennie Molenaar Chapman says:

    I would take my aunt, Donna. She and I share a love of being crafty and quilty.

  234. Michele Noble says:

    I would take my friend Michelle 2 with me (I’m Michele 1-we were numbered in Scouts based on how our names are spelled). She has quilted a bit, I don’t quilt but love sewing and fabric, when my kids are grown I might try to quilt again, I tried once and it was a big fail. She and I are like peas in a pod and she might be moving away soon so if I had a chance to go I would take her so we could spend time together.

  235. Laura Bosch says:

    Ooh! If I had the chance to go to such a big market, I’d take my good friend Suzanne along! Thanks for the chance and thanks for adding so much interest to my fb feed every day!

  236. Candy Long says:

    If I could take anyone to a quilt festival with me, I would turn back time and take my grandmother. I can’t remember a time growing up that my grandmother didn’t have a quilt to work on. She would have loved the festival. We probably would have spent an entire day in the "church of quilts" as she would have a made each type of quilt for someone at some time in her life. I am so grateful that I’ve inherited her love of quilting.

  237. Donna Cutting says:

    Thanks for all the pictures of Market, it looks like a wonderful event for quilters, so I would take my qulting friend. Thanks for sharing.

  238. Andrea Thompson says:

    I’d take my mom for sure. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  250. I’d wander the aisles with my sista Elaine, because it’s a family affair.

  251. Asked my sista Elaine via Facebook, if she’d go with me!

  252. Tara Elias says:

  260. sarah seid says:

    I’d take my daughter who is 20 and a Jr. in college. Though she has witnessed my quilt making, I think its important that she appreciates quilters and their art on a much larger level. In the age of so much technology, having her witness creativity on a much different level would be a huge teachable moment in her life.

  261. Cindy Digiscrapations says:

    I’d take my daughter, she doesn’t quilt yet. But she loves doing the layouts, so I think she has the bug at least the start of it.

  262. Tina Linhardt Gilligan says:

    I would take my daughter, she goes every where with me, she is only 13yrs old and I am teaching her to quilt like I did with my older three girls.

She taught me to quilt about five years ago and she is always so positive when I show her my work. Her quilts are done on the old-fashioned frames, which are assembled with ten-penny nails through holes in long wooden rails. Love my Nanna.
