Fall Market 09: We've arrived! and Sample Spree Giveaway...

** Thanks for entering! This giveaway is now CLOSED!! **

We're here!! After a long, arduous...3 hours in the car (yes, that is very tongue-in-cheek, and kudos to all you certain folks who drove halfway across the country in your cargo vans) we have arrived here at the Fall 2009 International Quilt Festival in Houston! What happened tonight? Fabric 2.0 Lite, hosted by J. Caroline, and Sample Spree! (Snagged some goodies for a giveaway -- keep reading!)

We arrived late afternoon, so didn't get to do any Schoolhouse :( But the Fabric 2.0 event was fun...met some Twitter peeps and other shops, including the host Caroline (who is soooo friendly & fun)!


 Then headed over to Sample Spree, where we bought a little bit of this, a little bit of that...


I don't have a picture, but Debbie was so wild about her Allie sample that she bought from Bunny Hill Designs!

Some pretty quilts caught our attention...this is from the Me to You table, and uses some Flower Sugar <3


Saw some familiar faces :)

Now how cute is that? Melly & Me, with their Hooty and Tweet softies!

So nice to put faces to names! Met Vickie, Julie & Rachel

Reminder to self: restock on these Carolina Patchwork patterns, they're fantastic...

More yummy fabric at Red Rooster's table


Ran into the French General -- Kaari Meng! Her new line Rural Jardin is...sigh! Still waiting for Rouenneries yardage to drop!! Hurry hurry, Moda!

Stopped to admire this Meet Me in the Meadow display at Jillily's table...

SAMPLER BOXES! Moda Bake Shop's newest!!

And the Moda chaos only beginning...

Ain't Sample Spree a beautiful thing?

We smuggled some of these beauties back to our room...Moda's newest Bake Shop addition, the Sampler box!! Aren't they smart?? I'm using way too many punctuation marks in this paragraph, but we love them so much...we hope you do too!


The Moda Bake Shop Sampler box comes stocked with 12 packs of 40 - 2 1/2" squares. Each pack is a new Moda release...hence you get to sample a little bit of 12 lines. SWEET! It also includes projects & templates for charm quilts, as well as the history of charm quilts. The groups for this season's box include Bar Harbor, Butterfly Garden, Collection for a Cause: Charity, Eden, Frolic, Garden Party, Lakeside Resort, Looking Back, Martinique, Spring Fever, Verna and Whimsy. AND, this box is available in November, so you get to sample the fabric waaaay before the line even comes out in Feb/Mar 2010! I think it makes a perfect gift, just in time for the holidaaaaays...

So here's how you can help us...we have just added the Moda Bake Shop Sampler Box to our store's Coming Soon page. If you wish to be notified when the Sampler box arrives in our store, let us know via Kimberly's e-mail address in the pink paragraph below the Sampler box, so we can get a good idea of how many to order at our Moda meeting! That way we can have enough for all!


Help us, help you! ;)

Yeah and of course...the giveaway! So what have you heard about in Twitterverse and Blogland about Market? Who would you like us to visit and paparazzi? Comment on this post (gets you 1 entry) and or send us a tweet (for another entry) to let us know, and 5 winners will receive these super sweet Sampler boxes! We'll announce the winner next week!

For now good night...tweet & talk more tomorrow :D

I would like to know who the 3 sisters are that design for Moda? I thought found there website once but it looked pretty non-descript for the fab fabrics that they design... are they that illusive?

Emily said...

I love the sampler box! I love getting your updates on twitter and I am so jealous that you are surrounded by all those yummy fabrics!

Vicky said...

Lots and lots of booth pictures of Minick & Simpson, Bunny Hill, Little Acorn, French General, anything Robyn Pandolph ... heck, you know the ones I like! Oh, and pictures of quilts with applique and piecing like the Sugar Flower and Jilly ones you have here. :) Mostly you all have a ton of fun!

Ginger Patches said...

I would love to see the Lecien booth and what they're coming out with!! Also Tanya Whelan and Amy Butler oh and the 3 sisters....actually I'll be happy with any all things quilt market :) Oh I love the sampler box, so soo cute!

Nikki said...

Your shop is my first stop when looking for fabric. Can you stop and have a look at the new range called 'California' Dreamin' by Jenean Morrison? If you like it as much as I do then maybe you just might decide to stock it too :)

Have a great time at market!!

bruinbr said...

Those sampler boxes are a great idea! I would love to see the new Sandi Henderson "Meadowsweet" line and anything Fig Tree!

makepiece said...

Ohhh!! Such wonderful goodies, I would love to see all the Lecien fabrics and Cosmo threads. Plus, of course, anything from French General! I'm turning greener by the minute.

Bec said...

Love the Sampler Box. What a brilliant idea. The things these people come up with. As for any requests for what I would like to see. I cant decide as I would like to see everything!!!! Sample spree should be called Heaven instead I think hee hee :-)

Christine said...

The sampler box looks fantastic. I want to see it all too! Figtree, 3 Sisters, Tanya Whelan .... actually anything MODA. And news of all the Aussies over there would be terrific too.
Christine

Carol said...

ange_moore said...

The Sampler Box looks fabulous - 40 bits from 12 lines, I can barely control myself!! I'd love to see the "Sweetwater" stall (love "Authentic" and can't wait to see "Make Life..."). There are also a few Aussies over there - Diedre & Leonie from "The Quilted Crow" in Tassie, Helen Stubbings from "Hugs & Kisses", and you can't beat Rosalie and Mel from "Melly & Me".

Pikku- Kettu said...

Those Sampler boxes look like the best thing since sliced bread! What a perfect way to find out about new lines!

meg99 said...

The sampler box is adorable! It looks like a lovely chocolate box.
Japanese quilters will surely love this box,because they(we) like to piece with tiny pieces.

I'd like to see the booth of Fig Tree Quilts,Sandy Gervais,Thimbleberries...and those who don't have their own blog.

A Peppermint Penguin said...

The Australians, especially Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. And Sweetwater, their new line Make Life looks really great!

I'd like to know more about the French General, Fig Tree and certainly the new entries that we will be hearing more about in the future.
The Sampler box is so enticing. What fun to play with all those fabrics. I'm sure that will lead to more fabric purchases.

Nicole said...

Those samplers are fabulous - certainly a great idea! Let's see, oh so much to find out- but perhaps it would be great fun to see the Michael Miller folks or Lecien to see what they've all been up to recently!
Have a wonderful weekend and stay at Market!

Kaye Prince said...

There are a couple of people! Anna Maria Horner because apparently she brought her new baby with her and Tula Pink because she is one of my top designers right now. And Joanna from Fig Tree just because I think she is a very nice lady!

Little Miss Shabby said...

K Cotton said...

Please take a lots of pictures of "Rural Jardin" by French General. Moda's Sampler Box is great idea! I can hang on the wall and count how many days to buy those beautiful fabrics.

Happy_Dawn said...

I'd love to see Heather Bailey's new fabrics!

happy zombie said...

The other members of the Jolly Jabber INEEDTOKNOWRIGHTNOW Club kicked me out last night for falling asleep. They said some nonsense about me snoring while I was waiting for you to finish your market post.

I love your post, I love your pics. Love. Love. Love your market posts!

PS... Now I have exclamationitis - which I caught from you. I mean... which I caught from you!!!

Barbara RS said...

You should have warned us first - there is some serious drooling going on here! I just love the idea of those Sampler Boxes and I would be in heaven with Jillily's yellow and white quilt. And as for that table stacked with packs of fat quarters at what, to me in the UK, are such amazingly good prices - I am so envious! May the rest of Market be even better - if that's possible!

Katie said...

Any chance of getting a sneak peek at "Rural Jardin"?...I'm so glad French General is designing fabrics!...Katie

PrettyPaisley said...

Love it all! Many booth pics please! Thanks much!

Sandy said...

I wish that I was as creative as Moda. Hats off to their marketing group! Oh yeah, I would love a sampler box.

Happy Market!

VincentMom said...

My mouth is watering and my fingers are itching! Can't wait to get my hands on some of these beautiful lines and patterns. Wonder what kind of cool project we could come up with for the sampler boxes? Ideas?
Thanks
Rain Vincent

Coffee_Queen said...

WOW!! The new fabric is fabulous! I especially like the Frolic, Martinique, Whimsy and the new French General (Rural Jardin?)line. Too much fun!

Stephanie said...

Oh you are too much fun! I feel like I'm there! Great pics, so exciting to see the new lines. I would love to see some Heather Bailey or some more bloggers. So cute to see these chickies at QM!

Kim said...

So much inspiration in one place. WOW! Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures that you took. I almost feel like I'm there. Wish I was, I just hate missing out on all the fun.

I really love the concept of the sampler box. How fun to have a small bit of 12 fabric lines all in one box. I don't think I could even open it and use it. I'd probably have to buy two boxes one to use and one to look at. LOL!

Nicola said...

WOWZA! Moda have got it soooo right, those bake shop sampler boxes look truly good enough to eat. And Im starving!! xxxxxxxxx nicola

idesiretofollowjesus said...

Would love to see what's new from Sandy Gervais, Kansas Troubles, Holly Taylor, or any Moda. Love the sample box!

Angela said...

I love the posts from the Market. I'd really would like for you to visit the BATIK booth.

Debi R said...

Do you need for me to come and stand guard in front of all that fabric? I'll make sure that people only look and don't touch! Right! lol

restitcherator said...

I saw tweets from Heather Bailey about having fresh sod in her booth! I would love to see pictures of that!

Thanks for the awesome pics and updates.

julie said...

How about Kansas Troubles Quilters, French General and Fig Tree Quilts just to name a few. Can't go wrong with Moda. It is all so yummy! The new sampler boxes are fantastic!!

Sew Bee It said...

Those sample boxes are brilliant! Can't wait for that one.

I'm excited for Sandi Hendersons new line, Meadowsweet. I'd love to see what she's made with her samples and get a few early project ideas!

Ruth B said...

Anything French General! Could you track down Mark Linpinski and ask him what the hooty-hoo is going on with him quitting everything?? Quilter's Home sans Mark makes no sense to me. Argh!!

QuiltyGoodness said...

I'd love to see the Free Spirit booth. So jealous--it seems like fabric heaven to be there!

Melissa C said...

Let's see, Fig Tree, French General, Sandy Gervais. Actually a picture of everything would be nice. Can't wait to see all the new stuff.

Mary said...

Would love to see what's new from Crabapplehill Studio and Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
The sampler boxes are way better than a box of chocolates!

The Sampler boxes are just SO wonderful - I would jut love to win. What a feast it would be to see all those fabrics up close and meet the creative people behind them...

Debbie

Jan said...

Hi, I am just speechless...how could there be so many incredible fabrics in one place? I am wondering how far is South Carolina from the Fall Market...would my husband and dog miss me if I slipped out and got on a plane...

What a clever idea to get all of the sample squares in our hands early in the season...Great for gifts, secret sister, and incorporating into quilts, runners and purses. Love it!

Ellen Easter said...

Where would I start - really there would be so much for this Aussie to see. I would start with Moda and then move onto Fig Tree and then Sweetwater and then some of the fellow Aussies - Hatched & Patched and Melly & me.

tooznie said...

Eyads, as another Aussie by residence, I think like Ellen Easter, I'd be standing there stunned like a deer in the headlights. Starting with Moda, and with all the fabric lines Moda has I don't know how I'd extract myself!

Susie said...

I would like to see Jo Morton and Jan Patek pictures of what is new with them.

Inga said...

I love the pictures of market. Bunny hill is doing a great fob with pictures too. I wish I could be there. The work involved is incredible. Thanks

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh how I wish I were there. I can't imagine being able to see, fondle (in some cases, lol) new fabric and idea, and most of all see the folks whose blogs I read. The pictures are so wonderful and almost, almost make me feel like I'm there, thanks for sharing them. AND those new Bake Shop sample boxes...***sigh*** to die for, what a wonderful idea! They would make beautiful gifts, decorations or...fit nicely into my Millenium quilt, lol. Great stuff, thanks again!

Noela said...

Sandi Gervais, 3 Sisters and Sweetwater as they have a new design I saw on their blog. It looks great. Hope your going to get that one. The sampler box looks good. Can't wait to get one. Thanks for the competition.

rebecca said...

Wish I were there. Looks like a great time. Cool new Moda items.

Wendy B said...

Would love you to visit any of our Aussie designers.....that would be so cool!!!!!
thanks for the preview....nearly as good as being there :o(

MonicaP said...

Thanks so much for sharing all these wonderful pictures with us. I am especially interested in Joanna's new Whimsy line and patterns. I love the retro quilts, fabrics and patterns. I also enjoy seeing the new designers.

judycinnc said...

These market pictures are fantastic and what a wonderful way to wet out appetites. I was wondering what Moda would come up with next and they do not disappoint. Nancy Halvorsen and anything Benartex is my pick. Pictures please!!! Judy C in NC

lizzie said...

Are you kidding...Where do they come up with this stuff..sooooo coooool .Great pictures thanks Lisa

Esther said...

What a great blog, makes us feel like we are almost there. Love those sample boxes. Anxious to read more news on Quilt Market. Anything you show is great.

Dee said...

It was great viewing those glimpses of market. Thank you so much. I appreciate having a spot to win a sampler

scottylover said...

Wow that sampler is sweet! I would like to see more of Amanda Herring at the Quilted Fish. I love her patterns!

Thanks for sharing all the pictures. It looks like a fun time.

ColiBee said...

The pictures I saw from the market were absolutely great! Everything seems to be soooo busy and fun. Digging through miles of Patchwork and Quilting.
Unfortunately I didn't had the chance to go as its located in a land called FarFar away! :o) (at least if you want to go from Germany!)
BUT... in the case I would go, I would like to visit Fig Tree Quilts. I am absolutely addicted to the designs of Joanna!
