Spring Quilt Market 2013: Friday

Our first show day at Spring Market has come and gone. We spent the day surrounded by gorgeous new collections, patterns and all of our favorite designers. Each booth was extremely creative and we are so full of ideas for each fabric collection. Want a peek at what we saw? Here is an inside look! To top it off, we will be giving away a bundle from our Sample Spree loot! And if nightly recaps aren't enough, be sure to follow us on Twitter for live Market coverage, head to our YouTube channel to watch TWO videos from Schoolhouse (with plenty more coming soon!) and check out our Spring Market Flickr set for tons of photos!

The Fat Quarter Shop gearing up for a busy day at Quilt Market with a big breakfast!

This year we are FALL-ing in love with Moda in their booth at Quilt Market! What do you think of the colorful leaves? 

Camille shows off the latest Bonnie and Camille masterpiece, Scrumptious! And yes, it is that delicious! (p.s. there may be a giveaway of this yummy collection at the end of the post!)

Fig Tree's booth featuring Honeysweet, which just might be another giveaway at the end of this post! The colors in this collection will blow you away!

Vanessa Christenson of V & Co. shows off her stylish new line, Simply Style in the Moda Designer Lounge!

The Sweetwater ladies and Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs pose for a quick photo before the craziness begins! 

Lori Holt's Bake Sale display in the Riley Blake Designs booth was just too adorable!  We can not wait for these patterns to come in. I bet you all can't wait for them either!

Ann Kelle's adorable new collections for Robert Kaufman Fabrics look great in these cute projects! We want those robots made with Fun Bots!

Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures shows off the goodies in her booth!

Jeni Baker of In Color Order shows off her latest collection for Art Gallery Fabrics, Nordika.

Sarah and Angela Walters are all smiles in the Art Gallery Fabrics booth!  Angela's Legacy collection is inspired by her Grandfather-in-Law and it is very inspiring.

That Crazy Old Lady has done it again!  Her latest collection for Michael Miller Fabrics is called Technicolor and it is filled with trendy graphic prints!

GE Designs' booth is filled with projects from her latest book, Fast & Furious Home! The projects are quick and easy! 

Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs' shabby chic booth, filled with new patterns made up in her new collection for Red Rooster Fabrics, Attic Treasures.

Northcott Fabrics debuted a new Stonehenge collection, Out of This World!  The collection features the solar system.  Blast off!

The Atkinson Designs booth shows off their new patterns, including one of our personal favorites, Stash Stars!

Sarah and Jocelyn pose with Heather Bailey!  

We love the adorable details in the Dear Stella booth!  The adorable whales and STELLA pillows add just the right amount of charm to the space!

Want a taste of what’s new at Spring Quilt Market? We are giving away TWO bundles from Sample Spree to two lucky winners, Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille and Honeysweet by Fig Tree Quilts.


We do a lot of walking at Quilt Market. This year we decided to calculate Kimberly's mileage with a pedometer app on her phone. For a chance to win a bundle, comment below guessing how many miles Kimberly walked today at Quilt Market. A winner will be chosen Tuesday, 5/21/2013. Be sure to check back tomorrow for more Quilt Market updates and even more giveaways!  We hope you are ready for day 2 of the show!

I'm guessing 5.5 miles ,,, no idea really as it's all kilometres here in Australia.

Stephanie @ Quarter Incher said...

hmmmm, how about 7.5 miles

Dreamingof03 - Heather said...

Wow.. Tons of inspiration. Those quilts and the bundle is so pretty. I am just loving the bright, happy colors. As for miles.... I think around 2.7... Reason being- there are only so many hours aday and how can you not stop And look at everything! .mq is not always easy to see but one of the most detailed and time consuming parts.

Sue said...

I will say 10.5

Mandy said...

From the pictures, I'm guessing only three miles as I would be sticking close to Bonnie and Camille's booth, and I'm hanging around like a bee for Fig Tree Quilts to release their cherry pie quilt pattern, and Lori Holt's new range is to die for. So I wouldn't have got further than that. Wish I was there.

Gosh, I can't get my math brain started up this early, so I'll just throw a lucky 7 out there and call it a guess! :) Thx for the pics. I'm hating getting older right now, what with a knee scope fresh in my mind (1 week ago). The only thing I have to look forward to is my kids being more independent so I can quilt more, and someday, maybe, actually attend quilt market!!!!

Stitched With Prayer said...

I know I'm always surprised when I use a pedometer at how far I walk, so I'm going to guess if your talking about the entire day, I'd say 14.5 - 15 miles. It sounds like a lot, but those steps add up pretty quickly so I probably guessed too low. Thanks again for helping us feel like we are there ... sadly I had a trip to Oregon planned to see my designer friend from Australia "Gail Pan" but my grandson got called to Navy boot camp a month earlier than planned and we had to be here to see him off. So if you happen to run onto Gail "Gail Pan Designs", tell her Nancy said "HI!!!". Hugs...

Mhairi said...

More guess work - because you have to be in it to win it.
I would guess 8.1 miles.
PS - make sure you check out RICRAC!
Jodie is an awesome designer from Australia, really funny with great patterns. I love her patterns and really want her to have a great time in Portland.
Hopefully you all have a brilliant time too!
