Houston Finale

Today we are at the end of the 2010 International Quilt Market photos. I hope you like them.

This was the display in Indygo Junction booth. They have a new book that looks really great -Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions. It was chock full of vintage needlework and graphics. Another interesting fabric line you will be seeing next year.... fabric from vintage Hawaiian Shirts.What did we, as Moda designers, see as the coming trend. Several of us commented that both artists and shop owners from Australia were heavy in attendance. I can tell you we get many hits on the blog from down under. This lovely booth was Don't Look Now - an applique design company that has a distinct look.
What made me squeal with delight? Well, I wandered by the Quiltmania booth and looked at their luscious books - many by the master of Japanese quilting - Yoko Saito. I decided on this one. Patchwork Lessons Vol. 3Imagine my delight when Ms. Saito revealed herself standing behind me and autographed my copy!!!!!!. I bowed. A lot. I hope I was polite enough.

Well, what did you see on this blog, and all the other blogs covering Quilt Market that intrigues you? Comment on what peaked your interest and make your comment by midnight Monday November 8th and you could get one of the following. (I'll pick four winners). Thanks
A Charlevoix Jelly Roll™

A Moda Sudoko Quilt Kit
A Moda 35th Anniversary Hanky - autographed by the Moda designers in attendance.
Or, a Charlevoix t-shirt!

I'm love to see all the quilts and inspirations not to mention fabrics.

Cathy said...

The appliqued white Christmas tree from Don't Look Now sure interests me. And of course, all the new fabric designs.

Sue in MI said...

I love seeing all of the new fabrics...especially yours!

Cheri C. said...

Those pretty flowers on that quilt from quiltmania...

Amy R said...

I'm interested in seeing more of the Quilts of Valor all the design houses have come together to do. I've seen yours (and love it). I'm also lovin what Anna Maria Horner and Amy Brandley have done. The new book by Oh Fransson has caught my eye as well. I'm normally a repro girl, so all this is out of my normal comfort zone.

I love the quilts! The fabric is so beautiful! Love the shirt!

Logan said...

I love the new Blackbird lines. My fav. was Charlevoix!!!!

Cheryl said...

I am intrigued by the Australian designers and the young designers with their graphic approach to trendy new fabrics.

Janet said...

I have enjoyed all your pictures from Quilt Market. I'm looking forward to seeing your new Charlevoix line when it comes out. I also loved the antique quilts in Cindy's booth. Wouldn't it be wonderful to spread each of them out for a really good look at them...sigh...

James-Linda said...

THANKS FOR SHARING ABOUT MARKET!
I LOVE THAT JELLY ROLL!
THANK YOU KINDLY FOR SHARING!

Jo Anne said...

I am mostly intrigued by the booth designs. Then, of course, the sheer massive scope of market.

Gayle said...

I always love hearing who's booth won awards and seeing pictures of them. That's my favorite part!

Lizzie said...

I find the whole 'quilt market' fascinating and I'd love to be able to be there, just once.....!

Love seeing what you guys are doing and seeing all the designers with their booths and fabrics! Linda at rgranch@pioneer.net

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

It all looks quite fascinating to me! I love seeing the booths and new designs. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lynn said...

I am just over the moon to see the Yako Saito books. You lucky duck you!

Monica said...

Honestly...and there is no sucking up here...I love your new patterns with the baskets and flags. The colors for your new line have a freshness about them. I also really like the new Brannock & Patek line along with their basket pattern.

Cindi P. said...

I think my favorite is the mural painting that you commissioned. I have seen it on other blogs too...what a cool idea.

Vicky said...

Seeing your booth was the highlight of market pictures! Can't wait to get my hands on those new patterns! The other thing that intrigued me was that pinwheel quilt on the table at the Blackbird booth. Thanks for the wonderful tour!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

That Vintage Notions book looks interesting but your new fabric really intrigues me!

Susan W said...

There were so many "good things" to see on your blog that it's hard for me to choose. The Number One picture that peaked my interest are the ones of Minute Maid ball field, empty; not a ball player is sight. I can imagine walking on the outfield green grass.

Margaret said...

Those Hawaiian shirt fabrics have definitely grabbed my interest! But my favorite still has to be the BBD ladies.

Miriam said...

What I loved seeing the most was the painting of your mom and aunties. What a wonderful and touching idea.
From all your posts about market there were 3 photographs of quilts that inspired me. The antique quilts, Blackbird Designs and Jan Patek. Thank you for sharing!

kathy said...

The Vintage Notions book and your fabric both look really fun!

Anonymous said...

All the photos were great and I loved your booth but the book by Yoko Saito has to be my favorite. I could look at her work all day

Mary said...

I am excited about all the new fabric coming out, including yours. You can always count on Minick & Simpson fabric being beautiful. I would love to see more of the antique quilts. And I am interested in seeing more of Don't Look Now. I've followed her blog off and on for a while and am anxious to see her patterns being sold in the U.S. She is very talented

Sandy F said...

I love all of the fabrics and I love the applique white christmas tree. Thanks for sharing.

Kathryn said...

I'm reading more and more Australian bloggers and love to see their fabric and use of color. Kathie L in Allentown

Anonymous said...

I love all the exciting applique designs coming from Australia! Thanks for the opportunity! I'm drooling over that little Moda hanky.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I love seeing the designers and the beautiful new quilts. There is always a feeling of excitement that comes across. I know it is a lot of work, but it looks like a lot of fun too.

Cyn said...

I enjoy seeing everything but I was really drawn to the two versions of the same quilt in the Blackbird Designs booth. One on cream and the same quilt on black.

I also enjoyed seeing Miss. Rosie's new quilt, "Heartland" especially since it was done in Minick and Simpson scraps! :-)

I also enjoyed seeing the bird and snowman quilt in Jan Patek's booth.

I loved seeing the Charlevoix painting! What a wonderful idea.

I'm intrigued with the idea of quilt fabric based on Hawaiian shirt material and what the designers will come up with to use the fabric.

I also enjoyed seeing the close up picture of the Moda Sudoko quilt kit. It's already on my wish list!

I could go on and on, but these are the ones that I'm remembering, or at least right now. :-)

Cynthia

madrekarin said...

I just love how bright and happy everything is. I feel like I've been given a free ticket to inspiration station! And, those Hawaiian prints? Hmm, I can't wait to see what will be done with them.
I just bought a Clermont Farm jelly roll and now you're tempting me with Charlevoix? Swoon. :)

rebecca said...

Great info on the Houston Market. Anything applique gets my interest. Glad to see maybe a little less of the strip projects?

Nancy said...

I love looking at any and all quilts and bolts of fabric, but the thing that has stayed with me is that wonderful painting of your mother and her friends in the boat from many years ago. What a treasure!

Nancy said...

I loved reading all the reports on the Fall Market - since we can't go, it is the next best thing! Oh, and the Go! Baby is cool!

Melinda said...

I really like Don't Look Now and all their projects.

bettina said...

i love the hawaiian shirt concept and the tree with leaves and the little girl quilt it all looks so yummy to get going on where to start first is the question

jabeybaby said...

I love the don't look now patterns but they look so difficult. Maybe one day...

Lisa said...

My fave is the Chippewa Nine Patch in Charlevoix. Carrie's Heartland in Minick and Simpson scraps is wonderful too. I enjoyed seeing Market through the eyes of the attendees...what each person photographed and how it was captured intrigues me. The antique quilts, what can I say? I hold my breath when I see pictures of them. Booth design is interesting too...loved the parasols hung upside down. Thank you for posting all about your trip to Market. ~~Lisa

Lisa said...

The fourth pic down, the white christmas tree on a yellow background. What a beauty. I don't recall ever seeing one like that. I don't even really like applique. I always enjoy the pictures of new ideas. Too bad you can't bottle that feeling and open it when necessary. Until then I will just have to visit old posts on my favorite blogs. thanks for the opportunity to win. thanks lisa

Anonymous said...

Definately the new applique designs by Don't Look Now.
~Joyce in MI

Becky said...

I was intrigued with the quilt in the Blackbird Design booth. The applique quilt with a dark background and then the same quilt with a light background. Love the large applique on this one:) Thanks for sharing your photos and impressions with us!

Lesly said...

I love the look of Charlevoix, and for something really different at Market, I was very interested in the Marcia Derse fabric that I saw photos of. Thanks for the chance!

WoolenSails said...

I would have loved to see Yoko saito in person and her beautiful quilts, wish our stores carried her books.

Debbie

EdithB said...

I just love to see everything, would love to go, and yes one day I will.More photo please!!

Aunt Polly's Attic said...

Thanks so much for sharing all of your pictures of Houston. How I'd love to go ... just one time.

The Blackbird Designs booth looks really interesting. I love the painting you commissioned for your collection, Charlevoix. Gibby looks wiped out!

Carol said...

I'm intrigued by the new Moda fabric lines. especially Oasis, Charlevoix, Antique Fair, and Faith.

Kathie said...

well what I always love seeing is the booths at market.
Love seeing my favorite designers booths and their new patterns/book quilts.
LOVE seeing the new fabric lines
and well the antique quilt booths always makes me happy!
oh the orange jacket worn by Mark Dunn priceless.

SoozeM said...

I've loved seeing the color, it has been so vibrant, and the way different colors have been put together with results that are to die for!!!

*love* your puppy (is that Gibby?), does he come with the jelly roll? :)

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

I always like to see what the Blackbird girls are up to. And your new quilt with the baskets is exceptional.

Kathy in FL said...

My top two: The pinwheel quilt on the table in the Blackbird Designs booth photo, and the Charlevoix fabric collection. Red, white, blue, and YELLOW! I love yellow! Can't wait to get my hands on this fabric!

Barb said...

Your pal Gibby resting on a jelly roll has to be the absolute best! I know you won't part with him, but how about that jelly roll?

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

Seems to me I'm seeing a lot of embloidery on quilts. I guess embroidery is hip again.

Nancyz said...

I always enjoy your blog! But the Quilt Market blogs make me feel like I was there too! The "Don't Look Now" looks interesting and the booth from Blackbird was awesome.

Mary said...

I'm always fascinated looking at the new fabrics coming and the new patterns. Some of the booths are just so well thought out. Amy Butler has some fabric I want to see.

Mary

krisgray said...

All the quilts and new fabric are great but I'd really like to thumb through your new book. I've seen the Japanese quilts at Paducah, the show and museum, but I'd like to know more.

Mary said...

I think it's the quilt from Don't Look Now - all those leaves! That had to be it. I love to do hand applique but I'm not sure I'm up to so many of the same things. I guess if I did it, though, I'd be really good at points by the time I finished!!!

busymom said...

Where to begin, that interests me, everything! Let's just say that with all the blogs reporting on Market....I have decided that I must go, someday and I hope sooner than later.

Sarah said...

What intrigued me most of this post was the photo of your dog and the jelly roll! If that was my Mastiff he'd be chewing on it! Loved reading all the posts from Market.

FabricsNQuilts said...

I love seeing all the networking between all the creative minds. The pictures really show how creative and fun quilting is.

Gretchen said...

I love seeing all the Moda booths from market to see how the designers are using their new fabric lines. There's always amazing creativity; I don't know how everyone comes up with new booth designs each market. I can't wait for Sherbet Pips to hit the shops (very fresh and new looking) and of course, Charlevoix (love that yellow wow!)

The Winn's said...

I am interested in the Austrailian applique, and from another blog I saw that Ty Pennington is ging to have a line of fabric! How strange!

Janelle J said...

I always like seeing the booths. They are so pretty and inspiring. It's always interesting if there is a particular color or design theme like stripes or dots that stands out season to season. Keep up the great work and hope you get some well deserved after-market rest!

SheilaS said...

This is not from your latest blog but I really, really loved the 50's style painting of your mom and aunts in the blue boat with the red, white and blue colors. What a beautiful painting!

Anonymous said...

I love seeing all the booth setups. The fabrics are so beautiful. You designers work so hard and it looks like you have so much fun together.

Darlis

Molly's Mom said...

I love being able to have a glimpse of the booths. They are all so creative.

Molly's Mom said...

I love having a glimpse into all of the booths, they are so creative.

Darlene B said...

I'm just always amazed that there are always new ideas and techniques and rulers and fabrics and.....WOW, there are some amazing creative people out there who I'll never meet, but whom I admire greatly!

Marcia said...

Your booth (with the exceptional painting) and products are at the top of my list. I am intrigued by the wide differences between the display booths. I like some that are opposites - Amy Butler (very full) vs Kansas Troubles (neat and easy to see). Blackbird Designs (old) vs Marie Antionette (modern take on old). I'm also happy that the Aussie folks were there as have read the "Don't Look Now" blog and Sara Fielke's web sites for a while. However, I didn't see any mention of Saffron Craig. There also seems to be many more small vendors, especially for fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway. I'm hoping for a jelly roll! How much will fabric prices rise?

Laurie Shain said...

I found the painting of Charlevoix amazing....and it's personal for you! I particularly loved the yellow fabric on the lawn chair....and the flag wal quilt in your booth. When you love something in fabric...youu get tha "emotional rush." The quilt show must be WOW!!

Vicki @ DottyJane said...

I love to see all the booths and great new fabrics and patterns! It must be crazy for a few days:)

Carol Sc said...

What usually peaks my interest is all the new fabrics that will soon be on the market (and many added to my stash). I also enjoy seeing pictures of the celebrities in the quilt world --- being able to put faces with the names. I just watched a special segment on Sparky Anderson --- I'm assuming that you will miss him, as so many Tiger fans. He certainly gave us much to cheer about.

aztel2000 said...

It's so fun to see all the new stuff that we have wait for...and it's so frustrating! I'm curious to see what the Ty Pennington fabric will look like and I want to see more of those new Moda fabrics. Karen in Breezy Point

Laura T said...

Great pictures from market! I had not seen anything about Don't look now so it was fun to see your pics. Love her designs. I'm also really interested in the retro Hawaiian fabrics so I'll look foward to see it. Of course last but not least your new fabric line, Charlevoix!
Laura T

b said...

Charlevoix is very cool! I also love the tree quilt from Don't Look Now.

Quiltjane said...

Running through my morning blog readings, I noticed on one of the blogs the author had taken a picture of a quilted sign that read, "we make concealed gun pockets for handbags" or something similar. That is so bizarre.

Quilter Kim said...

Thank you for all of the pics from Houston. Someday I will get there. Loved the look of Jan Patek's quilts.

SueB said...

Oh it is so had to just pick one. There are so many patterns that I want to get. But I think I have to Pick the Quilts of Valor. I am big on doing quilts for that group myself. Last year at the Houston Quilt show My Quilt hung in the QOV booth. Of course it was the Welcome Home Pattern.

farmhousequilter8 said...

I really enjoyed the Charlevoix painting and thinking of you being surprised when you saw it. Glad you had a wonderful time!!
Paula

Lori said...

Thanks you so much for the virtual trip to Houston!! It was the next best thing to being there.

I loved all the sewing (besides quilting) that is going on!!
Aprons, bags and pillows, of course, but kids clothing, backpacks, footstools, and decopauged bikes and guitars! Too cool and very creative!!

angie said...

Well, your fabric of course cause I love it so!!! I also CAN'T WAIT for Sherbet Pips (a Moda line) and Parisville by Tula Pink because I loved Sofia Coppola's movie as much as she did. My Mom was a '70s "housewife" so I can't wait to see the movie....and your fabric in it. :)

Karen said...

I think I'm in love with BlackBird designs and their new book Garden Club. Their new fabric and patterns in the book look wonderful. I think I need to keep practicing my applique. There are so many beautiful quilts to make with applique. Too much to do and too little time. Thanks for the fun giveaway. Karen M

mascanlon said...

I run the gamut from the new designers like Lizzy House and Monica Solorio-Snow to my favorites for many years, Joanna Figueroa and the Blackbird design team. But most of all I love seeing the booths from start to finish, the empty curtains to the prize winners! Thanks for the fun chances to win!

Emma said...

Always my favorite is Blackbird Designs....fabric, quilts and cross stitch. Charlevoix yellow is a refreshing addition to a lovely new line. Your booth offered loads of inspiriation for spring. Thank you for sharing Market and offering another giveaway.

Ginny Worden said...

I am looking forward to the new Laundry Basket designs, and of course Minick and Simpson new fabric.

Jane said...

WOW everything I saw was absolutely stunning!!!! Made me wish I was there in person! :)

Daphne said...

Love Charlevoix! Can't wait to see it in person! The applique is also very interesting!

Zegi said...

I love seeing pics of the booths. It would be so awesome to see a slide show somewhere of every booth at the show. Someday i hope to attend...someday

Karen Sikes said...

I love all of it, but I am drawn to the children's clothing now that I have a granddaughter.

Wendy P said...

I saw an ad months ago in a quilt magazine for Alfred Shaheen fabrics, and I am so looking forward to seeing some in person. Your mention of it was a top highlight from Houston. I have a few pieces I collected long ago, and they won't be lonely for long!

Thanks for sharing your trip with us!

Ter'e said...

Two things have just totally left my mouth agape.
1) The absolutely stunning treasure of a painting "Charlevoix" ---- just left my mouth hanging and tears in my eyes. What a wonderful treasures for your families for years to come.
2) The Cherry Quilt as shown on your blog and known to be your pattern. I have pulled it up - looked at it from every which way - tried to figure out how hard this would be for a non quilter and finally have decided it needs to be a HOOKED wall hanging, tying in some of your beautiful fabrics. I have imagined sleeping with it, showing it off, sewing on it, touching it ---- I am hooked. Yeh, somehow, this needs to be a beautiful hooked wall hanging. (I think I am too old to start quilting now).
Whew...............thanks for letting me drool........

quiltnmaryf said...

Having been to Quilt Market in the late 1990's many times, I envy all of you who go now! It is such an exciting place to see creativity and beauty all around you. It is an inspiration to read your blog, and those of other quilters. Thanks for showing us a view of Market, and for the great giveaway!

MARCIE said...

I absolutely love the painting of your aunts on the boat that was in your booth. It is amazing and looks perfect with all your pretty quilts and colors.

Anonymous said...

Love it all - all the new fabrics, and of course anything with a Christmas design.

PamKittyMorning said...

Holy cow those are some great market photos!
