Spring Market Day One

Hey guys! We're here in a city bustling with quilters to the extreme right now, starts with a P and ends with an ITTSBURGH. All arrived safely, and we finished our usual first bout with the always eye-opening Sample Spree! Saw some good quilt-y friends and got some photos to show! (Warning: Picture heavy post!)

(Oh yeah -- not sure what Market is? Check out our post explaining it.)

And and and, got some Fat Quarter Bundles to give away!! More details below after my picture purge! Follow us on Twitter this weekend, cuz we'll be tweeting all throughout Market what we see and do!

OK, so we got to Pittsburgh. Here Cheryl and Debbie are, waiting for burgers and fries. We need the fuel for the days ahead! BIG smiles, BIG anticipation!

And off we went to Sample Spree! The first people we see at Sample Spree: Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister Designs! Really digging those juicy colors! (Click on any of these photos to see more fabric highlights on Flickr!) Their line Clementine is out soon, and Birdie follows!

Here's Debbie, examining the newest Bali Pop additions. Good eye, Debbie!

G.E. Designs table sans Gudrun! Love these new patterns -- should be here any day!!

And adorable Pam Buda at her Heartspun Quilts table! I love the way she talks, so sweet. All of those neat patterns beside her are now in stock at Fat Quarter Shop!

Hello, Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek patterns! Love your beautiful applique!

Lovely Anna Griffin bundles sitting at the Windham table...that's Cheryl and Debbie strolling by in the background :)
Pardon the tired eyes -- the focus is on Lynette Andersen! Talked with her a bit about her new line Christmas Magic. She says it's quite an experience, stitching on her own fabric for the first time!! I'm enchanted by her accent, and oh my goodness, she's pretty. :)

You KNOW what's about to happen to this Moda area, right?

THIS is what happens. Move it or lose it.

Hi Camille! Proof that pretty people rifle as well :) JK!!

Don't know who this is (let me know if you do? LOL) but she looks happy with her loot!
Yay! One night down, 3 more days to go! Stay with us...we'll be back each night!

So here's the rundown on the Giveaway... we got a Fat Quarter Bundle each of the collections from Moda's two newest designers!! Rouenneries (pronounced "Ruin-er-eez") from Kaari Meng of French General and Authentic from Sweetwater. Pardon the bedroom setting :P
We'll pick one comment from our blog and one reply on Twitter to @FatQuarterShop to win one of them! You can enter both ways! Tell us what you want to see from Market...who you've been hearing about or who you've seen on the blogs. Or what do you want to know about Market in general?

We'll do our best to share as much as we can! We'll post and tweet our winners on Monday, when we do our final Market recap!

Thanks for reading!! And good night! *hits the sack*

What a fun time! With all the lovely fabrics around you. I am keen to see more of the Rouenneries range by Kaari Meng and of course my staple favourite of Barb & Alma's Blackbird Designs.

Pikku- Kettu said...

Wow, the market looks like a dangerous place! :)

I'd love to see some shots of all the new fabrics.

highwaycottage said...

I want pictures of everything. I am so in the wrong job. Can i come work with you ????

Sarah C said...

I love that you are sharing the fun of Market with us!!!

I know it is so difficult to, but I love seeing all of the behind the scenes photos of what it is like to set up, and be at Market. I love seeing the new fabric, but I really love hearing about the work that goes into making Market so fun for everyone. I also like mini interviews - little things from side conversations with everyone there.

Hope im not being to greedy! I just really wish I could be there...and if I cant than I hope to hear as much about it as possible.

merumo said...

Having fun? I would like to see what are really cool and new in the fabric lines as well as the patterns! Enjoy :)

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

I'm impressed that you even blog while you are there! I mean, we love to read about it and live through you, but I would be exhausted and probably a bit overstimulated. Thank you for keeping us up to speed! I would love to see the finished products, quilts that are brought and displayed. I'll try not to drool on the keyboard...

DonnaP said...

I had called my mom and told her I wished I worked at a fabric or quilt store instead of the craft store where I work so I could go to Pittsburgh and visit with them before returning home! Spring market looks wonderful - and all those new fabrics - how can one decide? Good thing we don't have to! Would love to see some more finished patterns!

peg.cawley said...

I don't know how you do it. There is always just the right mix of fabrics to tempt me in several different directions. Moda has always been my fav and its exciting to be part of market if only from afar.

Thank you so much for sharing your Spring Market experience! I get completely overwhelmed with all the gorgeous fabrics on your site, I don't know how you cope at market!
We have nothing that comes close to the scale of Spring Market here in Australia so it's awesome to see.

Noela said...

I would like to hear about some of our Aussie designers who are over there. I love Lynette Andersen designs. Have just ordered her new fabric from FQS. She has been blogging about going over. Sample Spree sounds like good fun. Its great to see lots of pictures. Will be checking in over the week-end for updates. Thanks.

Cindy said...

Love seeing all the pictures! Especially of new fabric. I can't wait to see the French General line!!

Amy said...

OMG what fun the sample spree must be! I'm afraid I'd get "overload" and forget what I wanted to buy so I'd have to get it all! lol

Sally said...

Photos are great. Market seems to be overwhelming and inspiring at the same time. I'd like to see more photos of the latest fabrics that haven't been released, plus the booths, which are supposed to be quite lovely.

scrapseed said...

Love the new French General collection, can't wait to see it all!

MM said...

I love the pictures of market. I'd love to see any new patterns or books on applique

I'd love to see a photo of the Gingham Girls in their booth. This is their first Market, have had many quilt patterns published in magazines. I hope it's the first of many Markets for them!

JeanS said...

Love all the colors! Its like a fantasy world! Keep up the great commentary. I'm new to quilting so this is like reading a new book about a favorite new subject!

julia said...

Thanks for your market post & the ones which will follow! I'd like to see the designer's booth & the designers themselves...and, of cours, quilts ;o)
Can't wait to see Kaari Mengs first collection!

Kathy said...

I love how you are so connected with technology: flicker, twitter, blog, mobile updates. I'm a facebook fanatic myself! It is so imaginative and exciting to see what you see in "real" time. I am enamored with the new collections and would love to see more projects using jelly rolls, fat quarters and charm packs.
Also, are you seeing any "artsy" patterns similar to Louisa Smith's "strips n curves". I can't wait to take my quilting to the next level of innovative and "modern".

Monica said...

Looks like so much fun! I would want to get everything!

faceflower said...

Thanks for sharing...looks like tons of fun...and hard work! All of that beautiful new fabric just waiting to be made into quilts...sheer heaven!

Kim said...

Hi, I keep hearing about Market... when you say "spree" is it like a bell goes off and you run to the table and grab whatever you can and get out? It looks like so much fun.. to be able to see all the new lines. Thank you for sharing.

QuiltyGoodness said...

I want to see as many previews of new fabrics as possible! :)

Have a great time at the market. Can't wait to see all the new lines on your site. I'd better get quilting so I can rationalize buying new fabric... (ha ha like I need a reason to buy new fabric!!!)

Pam said...

Those markets look like so much fun. I am from Rapid City, SD where Pearl Louise, who designs fabric for Troy and BOMs is from. I always enjoyed hearing her stories about market. We now live in Virgina, so have to find out her stories through my mom now.
Thanks for the great pictures (MODA had always been my favorite). Hope to see more pics! PS can't wait for my BOM, that I just ordered from you shop, to arrive anyday now.

Cheryl said...

Love, love, love... all the pictures. I love seeing the booths when they are all set-up. Along with pictures of the owners of those booths, it's so wonderful to be able to see the face (and smile) of the designer. Right now my heart is racing from looking through all your pic's, it almost feels like I'm there. Keep 'em coming.

Marj said...

Looks like you are having fun. Keep up the good work.

I would love to go to market and spend spend spend. Sigh maybe someday!

Hey... I'm loving this blog! I'm at work but looking at all this quiting material with envy. I'm new to quilting but already have a small "stash" and looking forward to ordering some of those beautiful colors.... Have fun and buy lots...

I love seeing all of the behind the scene photos. And, of course, all of the celebrity designers.

Mary said...

I want to see booths, I want to see fabric and mostly I just want to pretend I'm there too (so ... could you possibly photoshop me in?) Thanks for the vicarious thrill.

I am a huge fan of the French General. So excited to see this line! Wondering how long it takes from debut at the market to hit your shelves. Thanks!

I'm so jealous! But someone has to stay home and take care of the kids and homeschool...right?
