We’re back from Quilt Market! We had so much fun seeing so many familiar faces, meeting new customers, and viewing all of the beautiful quilts. Thank you, Portland, for a wonderful week of inspiration!
We featured new Tonga Batiks, quilting collections, and some fun novelty groups in our booth, and we are excited to share a few highlights from the show.
We debuted Tonga Color Wheel, an 80-piece collection featuring four distinct color groupings: Earth, Forest, Plume, and Rainbow. We also shared new Block of the Month programs including Tongan Escape which features Tonga Nutmeg by Daniela Stout, and Tonga Lush by Wing and a Prayer Design.
