Market Post 3


I'm going to have to think up some more creative "market post" titles--because I have at least a couple more to go; I still haven't shared all of the market sewing along with goodies, patterns, and fabric from Sample Spree and book signings.  But for today I have a few more amazing booths to share.  First up is Joel Dewberry's gorgeous booth.



I really loved this booth and walked by a few times to get another look (and to make sure it was okay to take pictures)!



I love the crisp, elegant simplicity of these fabrics and can't wait for the clothing patterns to be ready as well.



Amy Butler's booth was small, but gorgeous--and there were samples to see and feel of Organic Soul, her next line.   




Amy was busy interviewing when I stopped by, but her assistant said pictures were fine.  Someday I'd love to get to talk to Amy.





The Riley Blake booths were as cute as can be.  Shop owners could enter a drawing to win this cute bike by stopping by every "All Dolled Up in Salt Lake City" booth and getting their cards stamped.




The "All Dolled Up" quilt was another highlight of the Riley Blake area.



I loved this "Applecore" design at Riley Blake, too.



And not only was the Amanda's booth adorable and cute...



But you also got to pose for pictures with her cute hats.  Here are Amanda, Kim, and Vickie (with me on the end) modeling the hats.




The Valori Wells booth was fresh and gorgeous...


And Anna Maria's booth was beautiful!



Another shot of Anna's booth...



And I especially loved Anna's embroidery floss color wheel.



The Michael Miller "Inspiration Wall" was a lot of fun...think my favorite section was the aqua and red.


And those Michael Miller super-heroes seemed to be everywhere.  They even had a phone booth (which I didn't get a photo of).



And finally...some Tula Pink Prince Charming--these quilts were actually on the outside of her booth...hopefully I got a photo of the inside!

Congrats to Ruth B  who won the Delight bundle from FatQuarterShop and also to Jodi who won the Happy bundle, also from FatQuarterShop.

I'm still going through the comments for my other giveaway...I'll be announcing those winners on my next market post!

Okay...that's all for now...be back soon!

Wonderful pictures, we don't care what you title your post----just keep them coming.

Hi Sherri, I just wanted to leave a comment and tell you that I love your blog! I've followed it for a while now and just realized on Monday that you came to my house with Camille this weekend on your way home. :) Small world! I didn't realize this was your blog until I checked on Monday and saw you carpooled with Camille and made the connection. So it was nice meeting you in real life, and thanks for stopping by!

So cool to see how beautiful and professional everyone's booths look! I love all the color and inspiration. I have been dyeing to see Anna Maria Horner's booth, so thank you for that sneak peak. Looks like you had a lot of fun!

Oh my golly, I think I have an obsession with color wheels :). That embroidery floss color wheel is an awesome display idea for all my floss :).

It seems fabrics get more beautiful and fun, every year. I saw the prince charming, that is too cute.

I am loving your posts. I was there and somehow did not see some of these booths. It was too much fun and sensory overload. Keep the posts coming. I think I had over 400 pictures. How to choose what to post?

CJ said...

Love the pictures and the commentary. Almost like I am there without the sore feet. ;)

Love all the photos!

Deborah Hays said...

Your pictures are so inspiring!! How can one possibly get through the entire show?! I would want to hang out forever in each booth! Thanks so much for sharing!

Nicole said...

I am really enjoying your recap of Market! Great photos!

Jodi-JoJoMia's Place said...

Yeah! I won the giveaway. Thanks again! I can't wait to get my hands on those cute fabrics.

I love your photos of market by the way, since that is the only way I get to see it. So fun to see all the new stuff, keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos! Many of us have never been ot quilt market and must live vicariously through the photos and stories of those of you who do get to go!! Can you explain the whole market process?? The individual booths are for those who design fabrics, those who just design patterns and the big manufacturers? The purpose is to showcase the new stuff...do the boothers take orders for shops? I'd just love to know the whys and how of the whole event!

Mama Pea said...

Love it! A purse I designed and made was hanging at the Quilted Fish booth! :-) Yay! I blogged about it today, if you are interested: www.peasinapod.typepad.com

Shgrri..great shots. and my feet don't hurt, I have not been glowing, I am not thirsty, it was a lovely visit. May I pour you a spot of tea...well deserving..

Glenna @ Hollyhock Quilts said...

I'm loving your photos!! Thanks so much for sharing them...

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Good photos. You got some things I didn't get. I can think of so many things I would now photograph. sigh

Q said...

I love all the photos and who cares about the names of the posts, bring them on, so all of us who weren't there can gawk at everything.

I don't think I would have been able to move with all the pretty everywhere, I would have just been standing somewhere stunned into silence (very difficult for me!)

Danielle said...

I just found your blog tonight - wandering through all that fabric just seems dreamy!

jdcoughlin said...

Great pictures! I was there, too, and I thought I took tons of pictures, but when I got home, I was surprised to find I hadn't. I guess I was too distracted by all that beauty. I was the fish outnumbered by too many shiny lures. Great time for my first show.
Thanks for the memories!

FWD said...

Love the booth. Looks like it was a great time!

PatSloan said...

great to meet you, even if it was ever so brief!

I am a new quilter and have not really established a fabric line of fabric....I used to sew but when my sons took all my spare time I stopped sewing for about 25 yrs. My has the fabric changed--beautiful colors and high thread count so it is sooo soft.
