Fall Market, Day 2: Appointments Galore

Today the Fat Quarter Shop crew traversed the convention center for a packed day of appointments. It was exhausting and difficult, but also exciting and fun, of course, to see all this fabric for the season ahead!

We've got two more days of this to go, so we'll stay mum on that subject for now, but we can say that we saw the beginnings of some fresh trends. Fairies and owls are definitely the hot thing for this Market -- an eclectic set, yes, but I guess they both have wings?? Just FYI, we're being super selective on these trends, LOL!



We also got to see some wonderful booths and, even better, some old friends! Of course, we can't post any pictures of those Mystery booths until the contest is over ;P. Darn, cuz those booths are wonderful! Click on any of these photos to see all of them so far!

The darling Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilt & Gift Company with one of our favorite quilts at Market

Deb Strain & her mother at the Saltbox Illustration booth. She is so super :)

Michelle of Pink Sand Beach Designs. Not only is this their first Market, but we got to be her first customers :D Hurrah! This is where we found that excellent pattern for our super popular Strawberry Parasol bag, FYI.

More celebrity faces...look familiar? Both past guest-bloggers, Elizabeth Scott and PamKittyMorning!

Lori, Kimberly, and Cheryl. We're so excited about what we see here!

Gudrun and Kimberly at the G.E. Designs booth!



My goodness, there's so much more, like Sandi Hendersen, Minick & Simpson (they're posting every night too!) -- but it'll have to wait for tomorrow night! Come back for more photo goodies!

And please keep guessing on our Mystery Booth contest! It's tough, I know (it's not fun when it's a no-brainer) but you don't have to have everything correct to win :) We're not cruel like that -- just guess and you're entered to win a fantastic pack of patterns!

Good night!

The patterns from Fig Tree and GE Designs are really wonderful. Two different styles, but I would make some from both.

The pattern from Fig Tree that looks like a snowflake is wonderful.

Can't wait to see what you are going to order for us to buy!
