Quilt Market: A Few Trends

Quilt Market 2015Good Morning, Quilters and Quilt Lovers!

Welcome back to Quilt Show 2015 at The Inbox Jaunt--a virtual tour of Quilt Market viewed through the eyes of this inspired (and foot sore) Quilt Blogger (Winner of the Best Modern Quilt Blog–more on that next week!)  We’ve been viewing fabulous quilts all week.  If you’ve missed any…just keep scrolling to previous dates.

NOTE-I’ve provided all the information I have on the quilts and designers.   A few of the quilts are not identified–sorry!

What’s “on trend” for 2015?

WOOL IS “IN”

Wool was everywhere at Quilt Market.

Bright wool!   From Sue Spargo, The Wooly Lady, Purl and Loop, and In the Patch Designs…and many more!

TUFFETS ARE “IN”

What a great way to display fabric collections!

Does anyone have a link to a good tutorial for a tuffet?  I’m sure we all would LOVE to sew one!

THE PLAN, DAY ONE

My resolution from yesterday…get up two hours early to quilt…

Perhaps, I’ll stay UP two hours later…?!?

Sew many quilts…Sew little time,

Good Morning, Quilters and Quilt Lovers!

You don’t have to be a quilter to appreciate the beautiful quilts on display at the International Quilt Market this year!

I was lucky enough to be asked by Sulky Threads to demonstrate my quilts (and their gorgeous threads) at Schoolhouse and in the Sulky booth.  In between demos, I walked the floor with my camera…with all of YOU in mind.  With over 500 photos on my camera…I will be sharing the rest of this week.  Next week, we will be back to our “regular programming” with occasional Quilt Market photos peppered in.

NOTE-I’ve included all the information I have on these quilts.  A few have no information…sorry!

JEN KINGWELL

I LOVE the fabric combinations in all of these quilts. Scrap quilts can be tricky and these quilts use an amazing array of fabric colors and styles…it’s not easy!

I had the chance to talk to the delightful Jen Kingwell about her process.  She said she’s really tried to come up with a formula or a process to offer students, but she just can’t.  She said she’s not holding out on students, she just works intuitively.

I guess I’ll just start by collecting a huge array of fabric colors and styles…

TOMORROW:

More purchases, a few notions, trends, and of course, QUILTS!

PLAN

Wake up every day two hours earlier and quilt before anyone is awake…

Wonder how long that will last?

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!)

Did I mention I took over 500 hundred photos?

More to come all week.

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
