Fall Quilt Market 2018 – Highlights

I thoroughly enjoyed Fall Quilt Market, did you?  No hassles for me with TSA, airport crowds, airport shuttles, and my feet aren’t even sore from all the walking around the convention floor.  But I am sorry I didn’t get a chance to see you at Market.

Actually, I was attended Market virtually.  During Fall Quilt Market I heavily stalked those in the business that share insights on their blogs, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.  And, today, I want to share highlights of what I learned about new products that were introduced at Market.  As always, if you see something you like I hope you’ll let your favorite quilt shops know you’d like to see them carry it.  They may not have seen it at Market.

HOFFMAN CALIFORNIA FABRICS

Mandalicious by Free Bird Design caught my attention.  Hoffman offers a kit (wholesale) for quilt shops of this gorgeous quilt.  Photo by @QuiltMarket on Twitter.

ISLAND BATIK

Many new wonderful batik fabric collections were introducted at Market, by Island Batik, including new collections by Deb Tucker.  They also had a very inviting booth showcasing many talented designers that created beautiful designs using these new fabric collections.

I was drawn to a unique design by Barb of Bejewed Quilts who designed the beautiful quilt on the right side of this photo (which Barb shared on her Facebook page).

One of my favorite researchers and reports at Quilt Market is the Fat Quarter Shop.  They do an excellent job finding new products and sharing insights on their blog and Instagram.    They also did an excellent job sharing insights from Schoolhouse on their blog, including quilts from their  It’s Sew Emma’s latest book, Perfect 10 Quilts.
