Spring 2018 Quilt Market Recap!

9175-quiltmarketlog-1b1a9f3

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.
