Spring Quilt Market 2017

Spring Quilt Market 2017

Hi Quilters!

This was my first time ever going to Quilt Market, and wow, what a time I had!

I flew into St. Louis on Wednesday, and got all registered and received my official name badge ~ another first, so exciting! :)

Everyone needs a quilty buddy to experience the show with so I met up with Janel from Nite Owl Quilting (we are friends from Sew Pro in Chicago) and her friend Dorie from Forever Quilting. We had a ball! Thanks ladies, it wouldn’t have been the same without you!

Spring Quilt Market 2017

Nite Owl Quilting & Forever Quilting

Thursday we attended School House. The day kicked off with a Welcoming presentation and the Moda Fabrics William Morris Premiere Event, showcasing the new William Morris Fabric. All of the attendees received a free bag from Moda with two charm packs of the fabric!

Before Schoolhouse begins you receive a newspaper-like schedule full of presentation options. You have to choose one presentation for each 1/2 hour ~ it’s not easy to choose by the way!

Schoolhouse Spring Quilt Market 2017

There were 13 time slots and 228 options total! I decided to kick off my day with Jen Kingwell. She is the sweetest and I love her designs and fabric from Moda.

Elizabeth Hartman had a schoolhouse showing off her newest quilt design and fabric line, Pond.

The day was jam packed and it ended with Sample Spree, where I bought a few more goodies to add to my Alison Glass bundle!

I think this Woolies Flannel bundle will make the perfect scarves for my Penguin Quilt!

And I couldn’t resist this new roll up of Panache by Rebecca Bryan!

And then.. Quilt market began Friday – Sunday! I’m going to start with my favorite part!

    You are so lucky to have gone to Quilt Market and to have met so many creative people and to have been surrounded by all those beautiful quilts and sewing projects!!

  98. Beth T.

    Thanks for the fantastic, comprehensive tour of Quilt Market! Even after all the other blog posts I’ve seen elsewhere, you showed me things I hadn’t seen and am excited about–like Tula Pink’s Holiday Homies! Plus, your explanation of what it’s like to be at Market made it really understandable–I found myself wondering how I would choose what to attend, which “rare” pre-cuts to buy.

    Congratulations on the Moonlight quilt getting so much attention, both in the booth and in the marketing materials. It’s well-deserved, because that quilt is a stunner.
