#MarcusMarketMania – Beautiful Booths!

Booth 1022 turned out beautifully, displaying the traditional looks we’re best known for, along with the contemporary style of Studio 37 Fabrics!  Below it, the Somerset Patchwork booth (1023), shows Karen Styles’ unique look and Australian design sense.

#MarcusMarketMania – Sarah’s Schoolhouse

In our first Schoolhouse session, Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J shared ways for quilt shop owners to update their offerings, while attendees got a closeup look at her new “Hashtag” quilt design, done up in her new REVVED UP RETRO collection for Studio 37 Fabrics.

#marcusmarketmania

Other quilts that helped to illustrate her suggestions included (left to right and top to bottom): Nancy RInk’s AMISH WITH A TWIST 3; Nancy’s A NEW AGE, another REVVED UP RETRO quilt, NOT SO WILD WEST by Irene Chan, and Sarah’s new Primo Batik BOMs, RADIANT REFLECTIONS and RIVER ROCK (they’re made with pre-cut 10″ x 10″ packs!)  Whew!  And the show  hasn’t even officially begun yet!

Is it just me, or did anyone else notice how the attendees’ clothing seemed to coordinate with each quilt being held up? See below…

#MarcusMarketMania – Prairie is Hot!

Fall Quilt Market is off to an exciting start!!  Schoolhouse sessions opened with the premier presentation by Andover Fabrics, centered on its new “Little House on the Prairie” line.

We’re not surprised by the popularity of the theme, judging from the ongoing appeal of Heartspun Quilts, where our own Pam Buda creates a complete Prairie lifestyle through her fabrics, patterns and inspiration.  Have you seen her latest Antique Cotton Calicos: OLD GREEN CALICOS?

#MarcusMarketMania – Wrapped in Joy for 2016

Yes, that’s Holiday 2016 .. our Sneak Peek showcase at QM features the debut collection by Rachel Pellman,  aka Rachel’s of Greenfield.  This is just a small hint of the line’s versatility – it’s a one-stop shop for creative holiday quilts, decor, crafts and gift-giving. Check out her pre-printed panel, Strip-It design and cut-outs for appliques, ornaments, tags and more at Booth 1022, and watch for the collection online in January.#marcusmarketmania
