The Colors of Market



One of the things I noticed about market was that vibrant tones and bright colors were everywhere! I LOVED Moda's theme for this market..."My favorite color is Moda!" (The photo above is courtesy of Melissa at Happy Quilting...thanks Melissa)!



Comma by Zen Chic for Moda was a fun new line on display...


And while Joanna of Fig Tree & Company didn't have a separate booth this year, some of her delightful designs could be found in the Moda area! The top quilt on the ladder is one I pieced just a week before market...I'll have more pictures of it soon! Oh, and the sailboats...I just love them...that quilt is going on my "must make" list!




I had to stop by my friend Lori's area in the Riley Blake booth to see what she's been up to! As usual, Lori has created some beautiful designs using her new line, Polka Dot Stitches!


I have to say her scissor quilt immediately caught my eye...I have to make this quilt...how fun will it be in my sewing room!



I love the baskets quilt and the pillow with the pom pom trim, too!



I also couldn't wait to see Tasha Noel's fabric, The Simple Life...she's been showing sneak peeks of her projects on her blog, and they were all amazing!



I was lucky enough to get a picture with Tasha, too...she was so nice! (As everyone was...I can't say that enough)!


I loved the bright colors at the Michael Miller booth!


Color wheels in many different varieties seemed to be everywhere...I have always wanted to make one, and there was a lot of inspiration to be found for project ideas!


I loved these colorful circles, too!


And this Liberty of London color wheel was absolutely breathtaking!

Okay...well there are a lot more pictures, I'll have at least one other post, maybe two...it feels good to be home, but I absolutely loved attending market again!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Lately I have trouble getting the page to load when I come to your blog, and to get the comment page to load. It's probably my computer and not your blog. But forgive me if I don't/haven't commented as much. I love all the colors at market, too. Looks like fun!

Love the photos. Is there a pattern out for the Liberty of London Color Wheel quilt? I thought it was just fantastic. I also like the scissor quilt and Lori's fabric line.

Hi Sherri. I LOVE A Quilting Life! U r such an inspiration to me! I wish I had half your talent & organizational skills. Raising grandchildren & had a stroke a while back, at times it's quite challenging to do what used to be so effortless. I always get re-inspired from your blog, Ur doing what U love & love what Ur doing & it's a real joy for all of us, so thank-you for sharing!

The scissors quilt was the show stopper, I think! I think 1 pair of scissors with a few spools would be such a sweet sewing room quilt. I have also taken little slivers of 1 line and made a "jelly roll" block - that would be cool to have a stack of jelly rolls on it, too.
