Greetings from Spring Quilt Market 2016! We're coming to you from Salt Lake City, Utah, and have so many wonderful things to share with you - including today's Schoolhouse and Sample Spree, and a giveaway for two brand new fabric bundles from Moda Fabrics! Woohoo!
Here's our Fat Quarter Shop team - ready to take on Spring Market 2016 Schoolhouse!
Schoolhouse, informational sessions to reveal new products and fabric collections, took place today at the Convention Center, and FQS was front and center. Not only did we attend several Schoolhouse sessions to bring you the inside scoop, we also participated in a few sessions!
Moda had several fun sessions during the day, and introduced the Moda Neighborhood - you'll be hearing lots more about this fun block program in the weeks and months to come!
Big news from Cotton + Steel
in the first Schoolhouse session of the day: Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co.
has designed a fabric collection for them - Les Fleurs!
The lovely and talented women of Cotton + Steel and their new designer Anna Bond!
Sew exciting, our first time to present at Schoolhouse!! Kimberly presented the First Blush
fabric and BOM quilt at the Windham Schoolhouse!
Kimberly shows off one of the quilts made with First Blush fabric and the Starburst Ruler - the pattern is call Kite Tails, and it is an upcoming Cut Loose Press pattern!
revealed the Ultimate Thread Collection today, and FQS will be one of the first to offer this collection! Yeah #tulatroops!
Tula also revealed her new fabric collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics, Slow and Steady! And like Chipper
, she's got a whole story behind it.
Kimberly also introduced the amazing Lori Holt in her Schoolhouse session! Seeing her at Quilt Market was extra, extra, extra special.
Lori's new buttons are literally as cute as a button!
Moda Fabrics has a new design pair: Franny & Jane! We love their new collection, Manderley.
and Kimberly Jolly during the Baby Bliss session!
Kim Diehl shared some fun projects in her Simple Whatnots
session. Such fun patterns and fabrics!
This quilt is a stunner!
Another big event today? Sample Spree! Manufacturers offer brand new product offerings so quilters and sewists in the business can start making product samples and quilts before the fabric collections hit the stores. Hundreds - if not thousands - of fabric lovers and quilting enthusiasts line up, rush in, and shop 'till they drop. Sew fun!
Here's a photo of a portion of the long line to get into Sample Spree.
