Seen at Quilt Market…

Seen at Quilt Market...Our major trade show, International Quilt Market, took place in Houston from October 27-29, and as always, it turned up a wide variety of trends and creative directions.

One of the most noticeable was a look you might call “Neutrals and Naturals”. Earthtones were everywhere, fueled in part by the push for eco-friendly textiles, and in part by color trends that stress a more casual and uncluttered lifestyle.

Seen at Quilt Market...We also debuted ELEMENTS (shown at right) by Faye Burgos, a clean, bold group of contemporary texture prints in tans, beiges and white-on-white.

Cool blues also continue in popularity, especially when paired with the neutrals, as shown in our booth display for SURF & SAND (photo). Don’t you LOVE the wide quilt border in the large paisley? The quilt, and the woven pillow at the bottom, are by Prairie Point Junction.

Baby quilts were big news, too, and while they never quite go out of style, this season’s sweet yet sophisticated BELLA BABY by Michelle D’Amore led the pack!
