It’s all about the fabric. At International Quilt Market that is. International Quilt Market is the industry’s trade show for machines, notions, furniture, patterns, embroidery designs and fabric – lots of fabric. The fabric companies really outdo themselves! They put months of work into their displays and it takes a team – well, maybe an army to pull off the chosen theme.
Here’s a look at some of our favorites.
Shannon Fabrics Dude Ranch
They had a whole barnyard full of animals – well not the breathing and moving type but life-like definitely!
And check out the cactus – soft enough to pet!
Riley Blake Fabrics created intimate vignettes for shop owners to place orders.
Think batting can’t be exciting? Well check this display by Fairfield!
Moda went for the big splash with anchors adorning all of the chairs.
Timeless Treasures made umbrellas from their upcoming collections.
While Michael Miller was a sea of blue and white.
But it’s not all fabric – two of my pattern favorite designers were in attendance: Kim Christopherson from KimberBell designs and Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction.
Quilt Market is educational, inspirational and sentimental. It’s a time to say hello to old friends, meet new ones and ogle over gorgeous quilts. I can’t wait to show you what I found in the Schmetz and Janome booths but you’ll have to wait til my next posting!
