Fall Market '10: Day 2 - Ready, Set, Go... and then let's Give!


Between appointments today we were able to stop by a few of the great booths here at Market. It's been a long day, but we've had a great time talking with some of your favorite pattern and fabric designers.

Anna Griffin -- just came out with some amazing lines!

The Isabelle Christmas Collection by Anna Griffin (June 2011)-- this picture does not do the fabric justice (sometimes that thing called lighting doesn't work out so well), but it's an absolutely adorable vintage Christmas collection. Sarah (my partner in crime here at the FQS), has been looking to make stockings for her fireplace and she instantly fell in love!

The Willow Collection by Anna Griffin (December 2010)-- we also just ordered this one. Super elegant and classic colors! Anna really did it up this time!

Not Only is this completely stellar for those little rascals that try their hardest to aim inside the bowl and might still need a stepping stool to do so, but it's environmentally friendly too! Birch Organic Fabrics have done it again with Beach Mod Circa 60 and Marine.-- and yes those are her boys and hubby in the pics-- absolutely perfect photo memories, what a good lookin' squad!

Some kids got a little festive for their booths! Debbie Porreca, head of Sales at Michael Miller, put on her vintage shoes today to get wrapped in their theme!

Bonne Amies (shown above and below) are keeping that vintage inspiration Debbie had above. And yes, we will now be getting this line-- in January 2011-- the bird print is to die for!-- so elegant and yummy (and no that is not me wanting to eat the birds)! ;-)

Then we ran into Patty Young again! (with Debbie from FQS) Her new line Sanctuary is coming out in January-- which she is actually wearing.. and you can see her darling little girl wearing it in the back photo!

Val and Anne (Pillow & Maxfield) posing with their new line Gypsy Bandana (also shown below). If you look at our flickr site you can find the full shot of the bed, including how they used the border print on the bed skirt!

Val and Anne pointed out to me the orange bullseye.. can you find it!? Note: they didn't do that on purpose and it can be easily avoided. ;-) Still so completely adorable though!

Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company informed us she just finished her next Schnibbles book and will have more patterns coming out in January. :-)

Look who I found next! So did you know that Marcus Brothers Fabric Company has been passed down the Marcus Family for 100 years now! That's Martin Marcus in the middle ( the owner), his son Daniel on the left, and Stephanie (who makes sure we know all the lowdown on new lines) on the right. Martin looks pretty sharp, eh? He was countin' down the seconds of when he could jump outta that suite and slide into his comfy clothes!

Once again Anna Maria Horner has flirted our way into our hearts with Innocent Crush! Can you please make that in my size Anna!?

Elizabeth Scott of Late Bloomer Quilts has put the Red Rose Farm in action! Better be aware, you might get wet with the sprinkler check!

ANNND last but not least!

We had a TV celebrity in the house today! Most famously know as the Host from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and was also the carpenter on "Trading Spaces." Well believe it or not, he is now releasing a line for Westminster Fibers in the near future!

Sooo we got about half way done with the show today-- to see more pics check out our flickr site. -- Don't worry we have a lot of goodies scheduled for tomorrow! I really cannot wait to see what is in store!

And now! Once again.. you guessed it... Another giveaway! We are giving away an Oasis FQB by 3 Sisters. To enter leave a comment on here, on twitter or on our facebook status about this "Jolly Jabber Update". You need to write about something we showed you today! And... ready... GO!

This contest will close Sunday, October 31st @ midnight CST.
