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!
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!
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.
Alison Glass had some gorgeous quilts with her new fabric line… CHROMA!
I was a WINNER of a fabric bundle! It’s mine… all mine! But, you can buy it here if you love it too!
Brigitte Heitland showed off her new fabric line, she is such a sweet lady!
I scored a signed copy of her new book, Zen Chic Inspired, from Martingale.
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!
I was lucky enough to have one of my designs for Coats displayed in the Shell Rummel booth! So fun!
I designed this Moonlight pattern last fall and it’s now available as a
You can see the entire collection on the Freespirit Fabric sites, HERE.
Look at the fun cards they had in the booth!
It’s really nice to be recognized! :)
Shell’s fabric looks amazing on this bag! (Pattern is by Aunties Two) And it turns out that one of my quilt guild members, Donna, made the bag! Small world!
Ok… enough gushing, I took tons of other pictures…
