To Market...


Market...it's just around the corner. I actually started reading blogs around market time just a few years ago and have always wanted to go. I've really appreciated the market reports others have done in the past and have always found the best links to these posts from Pam (plus Pam and her friends make some pretty fun market videos)! You can always get to the main page for the links on Pam's blog by clicking on the Quilt Market Logo on my sidebar (oh, and this very cute logo was designed by the amazing Monica)! This year, finally, I'll get to attend!  So...I have a question for you...what do you want to see?  I plan on doing several market posts when I return home and would love to know what you want to know about and what you want to see pictures of!  Leave a comment on this post--and I'll do my best to post about as much as I can.


In the meantime, I'm trying to cram a long list of  "to-do's" into just a few days.  I'm also making some new bags for market...using scraps from market projects I've sewn. One of my favorites so far uses Stephanie's "Oak Park Bag" pattern (pictured above in Bliss). If you can guess which upcoming line of fabric I'm using for my new version of this bag I'll put you in a drawing to win a copy of the pattern (compliments of Stephanie).  If you're making suggestions for market, just leave your guess along with that comment--no need for a second one.  Thanks so much...and have a great day!

Since I already know I'll just say Oak Park is DARLING in Bliss!!! I'd love to see perhaps some of the lesser known designer booths--the newbies. Wondering is there is perhaps any trends at market...colors usage, trims, etc...HAVE FUN!!!

Is it Strawberry Fields or Ruby....?? I'm going to say Ruby. And I'd love to see photos where your quilts are displayed along with your favorite booths. Then maybe other newbies to market that we might not recognize. I was at market a year ago and hope I get a chance to go again some day! Enjoy Sherri!

Auntie Pami said...

Hmm, maybe PKM's new fabric for Lakehouse? Super cute. Have fun for me. I can't go this year. But I'll be in Portland. Sample spree photos are always fun.

LeAnn said...

Hmmmm...could it just be Ruby for the new bag? The super secret, super pretty new Camille line? Have fun at Market! I'd love to see anything Joanna (of course), Tula Pink's Prince Charming, and anything really new and unique.

While you ate there take pictures of the new Lecien fabrics. Bari J. has Paris Apartment. There are so many to see. Just lots and lots of pictures of fabric....

trelly said...

Hi Sherri!!! I'd like to see the new Moda fabric lines (Bonnie and Camille, Fig Tree, Bunny Hill, Marcus Brothers, Blackbird...). And of course, the new quilts and BOM of: Camille, Joanna and Anne Sutton. Too much, sure! jajajajajajajajajajaja. It is very difficult to choose the fabrics for the shop with digital photos, someday I'll go to both markets (Spring and Houston markets). Kisses and enjoy it

Dianne said...

I'm guessing Strawberry Fields...or maybe something even newer from Joanna that we don't even know about yet...hmmm...

Barbara said...

I think that you could use any faric to make Stephanie's bag, but I think the Sew Cherry scraps from your sewing for Lori would be the first. Lori's fabric is perfect!!!
