Good Morning, Quilters!

As promised, more from Quilt Market 2015.  (Tuesday Tutorials will resume next week.)

First, I’d like to correct a mistake from yesterday.  The lion quilt below “Born Free” was stitched by Denise Sargo.

The first four quilts in today’s post were part of an exhibit of prize-winning quilts from The International Quilt Association.

The rest of the quilts (prize-winning quilts without awards) were on display in the various vendor booths.

For each of the photos, I have supplied as much information as I have.

One thing that really impressed me was how much work goes into the planning and set-up of the booths.  (And to tear down on Sunday, too!)

ONE MORE THOUGHT

Please take note of how the quilting effects the overall design.  Sometimes complex quilting adds a lot to the quilt, but often, like the quilt above, simple is best.

Quilting doesn’t have to be complicated to be BEAUTIFUL!  If you’re a beginner, take heart.

Inspired in Minnesota,

Lori

Quilt Market 2015…So Many Quilts!

Quilt Market 2015Good Afternoon, Quilters!

I’m back to my desk after several fabulous days at Quilt Market 2015!

WHAT IS QUILT MARKET?
Quilt Market is a trade show for vendors to show their wares– what’s new, what’s hot and all that is timeless to retailers.

AN INVITATION BY SULKY

I was fortunate enough to be asked by Sulky to do demos in their booth…

Why of course, I will…

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to be surrounded by all-things-and-all people-quilty!

I had the great pleasure of spending booth time with the owner of Sulky, Fred Drexler and the President of Sulky, Jason Prater …Two men with vast knowledge about the entire quilt industry…(though neither of them stitch!)

Here’s a great tidbit from Mr. Prater…”Quilting is a $6 billion/year industry.  To put that into context, the NFL is a $9 billion/year industry!”

SulkyThe best part of the weekend…entire racks of thread to choose from!

Like a kid in a candy store—hardly describes it.

I spent most of the weekend with a new (to me) thread…Sulky 30 wt cotton–in 84 colors!  You will be seeing a lot more of my projects stitched in this beautiful, glossy thread…coming soon!

MODERN QUILTS

There was something for everyone at Quilt Market this year…

Modern is still “on trend”

After I posted on Friday, I promised I’d go back to the Michael Miller booth and get more information on the Lion quilt.  The quilt is called “Jungle Abstractions” by Violet Craft.  The pattern will be available in stores and online on July 1, 2015.  It was a big hit at the show.

The other lion quilt (see above) part of the International Quilt Association exhibit.  “Born Free” by Denise Sargo.
