Quilt Market Houston 2013 Part 3




For part three of my Quilt Market review I thought I'd focus on some of the striking gorgeous colors and prints that really caught my eye. First up is the Hapi collection by Amy Butler. I always attend Amy's Schoolhouse session as she has beautiful photos, slideshows, and inspiration to share in her presentation.



Her latest collection was inspired by a recent trip to Egypt, and the saturated colors were absolutely beautiful.



I also attended Denyse Schmidt's Schoolhouse session where she debuted her latest line, Ansonia. She also has a collection of solids coming out soon, Modern Solids.


Tula Pink presented Fox Field, another beautiful collection showcased through quilts featuring simple shapes and patterns that allow the fabric to become the focal point.



Of course, the quilting on Tula's quilts was absolutely a work of art! I was truly awed by the presentation of this fabric collection.



I also loved Anna Maria Horner's latest collection, Dowry.



Anna Maria's booth was also a beautiful oasis of color, print and pattern. I loved this simple quilt made with squares and half-square triangles.



The flowers on the table were also lovely--I missed a photo of them the first time I visited her booth and had to go back to get a picture.



I also loved the presentation of color in this Bella solids quilt in the Moda booth by Vintage Modern Quilts. I'm ready to make another solids quilt for sure!



And, this beautiful flying geese quilt in the Ann Kelle booth was another bright favorite of mine!



Finally, the scallop quilt display of Kona solids in the Robert Kaufman booth was absolutely stunning.

I do have one more market re-cap post, but there is a Schnibbles parade to present first. Be back soon. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I think the first thing I take away from this post is how the quilting interacts with the quilts on display in your post, enhancing the shape and design. The second thing is the use of very saturated color, of punching those colors right up against each other and letting them duke it out--love it!

Thanks for your market recaps--
