Favorite Booths at Quilt Market

 Look here! Mary Koval's antique quilts. Always inspired by them!
 Stitcheries are going strong, on their own and in quilts. Loved the western theme to this booth.
 One trend I seem to see repeated was smaller blocks and a wide variety of scraps. Look at the basket quilt and the tiny little shoofly block quilt next to it. Moving left was wool applique. I see no slowing down on that trend either.
 Red and white is always eye catching. This is ThimbleCreek Quilts booth.
 Colorful scrappy star sampler. What a great setting!
 Marcus Bros using a quilt to sell fabric. Wonderful marketing huh? I love the way the triple inner border incorporates the outer star points. The pattern is from Red Crinoline Quilts and is called Sara Emma. ... Beautiful!!
Look at the black bordered quilt. The setting is very pretty but again, the blocks are small.
 
 I think this is one of my favorites. Lots of pieces, little blocks, lots of fabric scraps!!
 These are familiar quilts. Stunning and over-the-top.
  
Of course, I love big pieces in applique. The applique fabric and  background really brought this quilt to life. This quilt is by Blackbird Designs and is called Tending the Garden.
 I'm not sure which manufacturer this was from, but the scrappy basket quilt caught eye. I love the way the baskets change directions. The sashing fabric on the other quilt is lovely too!

I've got one more post of fun booths, then I'll show you some goods from sample spree.

As if quilt market wasn't enough I ran a half marathon on Sunday! I'd love for you to check it out on my other blog.

  6. I'm so glad you are posting your pictures of market!!! All the posts I have seen are of the "bright and happy" booths, and although I love those too, it's so very nice to get a glimpse of the "old favorites" variety.

  9. Hi Lori~ The "blue" quilt is a pattern by Bonnie Blue Quilts called Sarah Emma. I loved this one too, when I saw it on someone's blog a few months ago (can't remember who) but their fabric choices were more of a dusty blue - I really like the blues in your picture. Also, you've taken wonderful pictures of the Show - thanks so much for sharing!

  10. Thank you for getting these photos and sharing them. I love seeing market through your eyes. You've captured images of wonderful quilts--so much inspiration. I think if I had been there I would have suffered from system overload and had a migraine. : ) Getting these smaller doses from your visit is perfect!

  11. Thanks for these wonderful pictures. Most of the photos I've seen have all been Moda or Riley Blake and mostly modern stuff. This is what I like. I'm glad to see there is still plenty of it.

  12. Wonderful pics; I'm going back to the top right now to look them over again. Thanks Lori!

  13. Such inspiration! All those amazing photos make my head spin! I LOVE the small blocks, and have also noticed the trend. Perhaps it has to do with the economy? When money is tight, quilters (and people in general) become quite resourceful, using every little piece of what they have. Thanks for sharing your photos. Now I'm going to run to my machine and get busy!

  17. Hi Lori-
    Enjoyed viewing quilt market through your camera view. I had no idea there would be a booth of antique quilts there - have always seen the focus on the newest of 'things'. Looking forward to your next posts. Thank you.

  28. Hi Lori, thanks for posting these lovely pictures of a show I am never likely to get to visit - it's a long way across the Pond! DO you think the proliferation of quite small blocks is as a result of the huge interest over the last couple of years of the Dear Jane blocks? I guess people having worked a quilt in blocks that size encouraged people to work 'small' in other quilts.

    1. Hi Lynne, Dear Jane has been around for 15 years and I don't think it has anything to do with it.
      I do think it has to do with the economy and our ability to make each piece of fabric stretch to its maximum potential.
