We are back from Quilt Market! We saw many familiar faces, lots of new faces, and plenty of spectacular quilts! We had a great time in Houston and have all the highlights from the show to share with you.
Our booth featured Tonga batik quilts (including Daniela Stout‘s latest collection Tonga Riviera) and new Block of the Month quilts by Wing and a Prayer Design, Cheryl Malkowski, and Sassafras Lane Designs. Judy and Judel Niemeyer of Quiltworx introduced the Forever Collection along with their new batik collections (Tonga Rosé and Tonga Passion Fruit)—hitting stores this December. A large portion of our booth was decorated in a stunning range of quilts in red, white, and black – the timeless color palette of Tonga Rosé and the Forever Collection. Be on the lookout for all pattern information on our projects page next month!
Tonga Passion Fruit by Judy and Judel Niemeyer of Quiltworx:
Projects include: Ventanas and Blox quilt by Vanessa Vargas Wilson, Graciela Saddle bag, watches (upcoming video tutorial on Vanessa’s YouTube channel, Crafty Gemini), girls’ dress and romper, Going Places garment bag and Road Trip bag from ByAnnie. And if you can believe it, there’s more on the way!!!
We always love to share the backstory that inspired a collection. Vanessa described her creative process behind Dominicana in the video that we showed in the booth. If you missed it, we’ve got you covered – we will be sharing Vanessa’s video on social media soon.
The Row by Row 2017 theme is On the Go and we have exciting projects to go along with next summer’s Row by Row Experience! Projects to come include a sewing machine cover, pillow, tote bags, and two free layout quilts: On the Road Again and Travelogue. Use these free layout patterns to complete your Row by Row quilts (pattern will be for layout only; use rows from participating Row by Row by shops). Both quilts are vertical AND horizontal row friendly! Get excited – ALL these upcoming projects will be FREE patterns on our website!!!
