Spring 2014 International Quilt Market: Moda



Thanks so much for all of the kind comments on my first market post. I will have several more market recaps in upcoming posts. Today I thought it would be nice to focus on all of the amazing Moda booths. It's really nice to have so much inspiration all in one area of the show.



 I couldn't post about the Moda booths, however, without mentioning the United Notions section. It's so much fun to browse these displays and see what's new.



 I just loved the vintage decor too--putting a vintage canning jar on it, and I'm sure to love it!


The Fig Tree booth, featuring Somerset, was beautiful and inspiring. I know I shared this photo yesterday...but it had to be included again. Joanna's new designs and mini quilt patterns are a breath of fresh air!



 Sandy Gervais's booth was also a beautiful one. My favorite of her new patterns is the Broken Dishes quilt in the background. Her upcoming fabric collection is called Rambling Rose.



 Did I mention that the Moda booth received a first place booth award...I was so happy I snapped a picture of the ribbon!


 I loved these quilts highlighting the new Collections Community collection.

 And who can resist a display of fabulous pre-cuts showcasing the pre-market collection releases.


 Yesterday I shared a quilt by April Rosenthal featuring her new fabric line, Best. Day. Ever. This is another one of her fantastic new quilt designs.



 Amy Ellis, a new Moda designer, debuted her first collection, Modern Neutrals. Her display was lovely.


 Minick and Simpson never fail to impress, and this time their booth featured their latest collection, Lexington. I've been collecting their fabrics for years and can't wait to show you one of the projects I have planned for summer with my scraps from many many of their lines.


 Me & My Sister...their booth was bright and happy and featured their latest collection, LOL. The adorable fabric flowers you can see on the pillowcase are so fun--kits are available so you can transform your favorite fabrics into these fun flowers.


One of my favorite new collections is Pedal Pushers by Lauren and Jessi Jung. The booth, the fabric, and the quilts caught my eye every time I walked by. I picked up a fat quarter bundle of this line at Sample Spree and can't wait to get sewing with it!
 

 Another shot of the Pedal Pushers booth...see...I told you I liked this one!


I always love Primitive Gatherings too...did you know Lisa has a pattern available for the Moda ABC quilt in smaller blocks? There wasn't a new market release from Lisa; however, her booth was full of beautiful quilts from previous collections.



 I shared this one yesterday too, but had to ad it to the mix again. Edyta's collection, Heart's Content, is just breathtaking.



 Zen Chic is always on the leading edge of modern, and her new collection, Figures promises to be one that will be on many "must have" lists.


 Deb Stain is one of the sweetest...her Christmas collection was so beautifully displayed in her booth!


 The new Basic Grey collection, Persimmon, was another one of my favorites. This picture doesn't even begin to do these fabrics justice. They are beautiful. A fat quarter bundle of this line came home with me as well. I just can't wait to sew with it!



Pat Sloan always has new happy fabrics...and her new quilt designs are so much fun, too! Isn't that the cutest sewing machine?!



Sandy Klop's booth is another one I always go "ooh" and "ah" over. Her use of color is brilliant.



 Janet Clare also released a new collection. I so enjoyed her presentation at Schoolhouse. It's so fun hearing her lovely British accent, too!



Finally, Vannessa Goertzen, is another new Moda designer with a beautiful new release collection, Into the Woods. Her booth was filled with so many different projects, and she is as nice as can be, too!


Thanks you for following along. I do have some market goodies to share...a few patterns and mini charms. Leave a comment mentioning your favorite thing I've shared so far (from yesterday's post or this post), and I'll pick a couple of winners. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For me it has to be the Broken Dishes quilt from Sandy Gervais -- although it looks very challenging to make...

I'd love to make the Broken Dishes quilt - also, Pedal Pushers looks like a fun collection! thanks for covering Quilt Market so that we can see what's new!

I've always loved the Sandy Klop fabrics and this time was no exception. Love Joanna Figueroa's new minis too!

There are so many pretties, but if I have to choose just one it would be Rambling Rose by Sandy Gervais. Her Broken Dishes quilt is beautiful! Thank you for giving us a tour of quilt market.

I love all the photos since I never get to go but the photos make me feel like I was there. I think my favorite so far is Sandy Gervais Broken Dishes quilt. But then I always like her fabric.

I adore anything Fig Tree but that little quilt with the rubber boots is absolutely adorable!

I love Hearts Content by Edyta. The colors and quilt pattern are great. There are so many wonderful things to look at. Thank you for sharing. You have inspired me to sew more projects instead of gardening today.

Nine Kids and Not Counting :) said...

I really like the Fig Tree minis. They use the Fig Tree fabrics so perfectly. I also can't wait to see the Pedal Pushers line. Thanks for sharing the pictures! A lot to take in and very inspiring. It would really be something to see in person.

Mary Ann said...

Thanks so much for sending the photos. Each year I enjoy seeing any photos of quilt market wherever they are held. Looking forward to seeing all the new things you will be making. When you purchase some of your favorite fabric line what do you buy on a regular basis? Fat quarter bundles?

Margaret said...

How can I pick just one thing. I almost feel that I was at the show with you. I love your photos. I love those Fig tree minis and all those precuts stacked up makes me want to just dive into them.

Christine M said...

I've really enjoyed the tour of quilt market. It must be an amazing place to see in person. There are so many gorgeous things. I just love the house quilt made with Edyta's fabrics. Thanks for the lovely giveaway, Sherri.

susiefloozie said...

I loved "Hearts Content" and "Lexington". Sandy Gervais's Broken Dishes quilt was stunning!

Sonya said...

Thanks for all the lovely photos of quilt market! I think my favorite thing (on this post, at least!) is Sandy Gervais's Broken Dishes quilt. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I don't remember seeing another picture of it. Thanks for the giveaway :)

Marcie's Quilting Therapy said...

Thanks for the chance at the giveaway and the photos from Quilt Market. Broken Dishes took my breath away - would love to tackle that one someday. I loved the Me and My Sister booth as well as the Basic Grey collection. I remember complete OVERLOAD when I went to Quilt Market - I do miss it!

lpnjam@aol.com said...

Hard to choose just one, but I loved Alison Glass from your post yesterday. Her use of color is fantastic! So rich and zingy!

Judith said...

I'm smitten with the beautiful quilt by Me and My Sister. The colours are so clean and vibrant. Thanks for sharing your experience with those of us who can't attend.

Cathy said...

I'd have to say the LOL line from Me and My Sister. It's right up my alley.

Angela Smith said...

Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us, so much fun to look at all the pictures. I think my favourite has to be Fig Tree, so beautiful, but I like Petal Pushers too! Have a great day and thanks again!!

Karen Wierenga said...

Sandy Gervais's quilt is gorgeous. I may have to work through my fear of so many triangles!
P.S. I'm sure you meant to say that Minick and Simpson's booth never disappoints or never fails to inspire, instead of never fails to disappoint. Oops!

Joan said...

Hard choice! My favourites are Fig Tree and Edyta Sitar's Heart's Content. Thanks for sharing. I love having a glimpse of market.

dortha said...

Loved the broken dishes quilt. Lots of beautiful new quilts and fabrics.

Karen said...

Thanks for all the pictures of the booths. They are all so beautiful. My favorite is the Primitive Gathering mini ABC quilt and the Minick and Simpson's new line. I love blues!

Brita said...

The star quilt in Edyta' s booth really caught my eye, but it's so hard to focus on just one! Thanks for sharing.

Betty said...

The Me & My Sister Designs booth is my favorite. Their collections are always so bright and happy!

Kay said...

Thanks so much for all of the great pictures for those of us that couldn't be there. I, too like the Pedal Pushers fabric & can't wait to get some to play with.

Terrie said...

OMG Thankyou so much for sharing your markey journey. I love seeing all the pictures and inspiration. It is really hard to pick a favorite but I think that Fig Tree is always at the top of my list :)

Terrie said...

OMG Thankyou so much for sharing your markey journey. I love seeing all the pictures and inspiration. It is really hard to pick a favorite but I think that Fig Tree is always at the top of my list :)

Bowbailey said...

Thank you for all the market photos! I'm really loving Sandy Gervais pattern broken dishes and also Me and My Sisters new pattern called Text Me as well as everything Laundry Baskets designs. Good luck on all your new patterns and books!!

Mary said...

I loved seeing Fig Tree's booth. I love that designers are coming out with minis as well as the larger quilts. I also love the star quilt in the background with the precuts table. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

marcella said...

Thanks so much for all the great pictures. Love all the inspiration and looking forward to your next post.

I think there's a typo (word-o) on the Minick and Simpson booth though. They probably "never fail to" impress or inspire or something positive. Not disappoint - they don't disappoint, ever. Maybe they "never disappoint" is what you meant.

Margaret said...

Without question, my favorites so far are the Fig Tree mini quilts.

Terri McBride said...

I absolutely love the broken dishes quilt in Sandy Gervais' booth it is lovely I also love Minick & Simpson and Sandy Klop's fabric hard to just pick one.

Jude Jones said...

I would have to say the chair in Alison Glass' booth (which I kept continuing to see in multiple blog posts and instagram pictures, or the quilts and new line by April Rosenthal....thank you for being so thoughtful! I met you at last spring's market (I was with Alison) and I love following your blog.

Joan H. said...

Thanks for sharing your Market experience. It is all so beautiful and interesting. I especially love the Pedal Pusher's booth. Those colors are so dreamy!

Terrie Dorio said...

I really like the fabric by the new designer Amy Ellis, Modern Neutrals. Can't wait to see it in person.

Michelle Jensen said...

I thought Vanessa was super sweet too! She was so nice to visit with. All the pictures are fantastic. It is funny how you can attend market and feel like you missed so much :) Some of the pictures for me are seeing things for the first time. Thank you for sharing.

Nancy E said...

I love seeing the Moda pics. Thanks so much for taking the pics and sharing them with us.

Priscilla Dugas said...

Thanks for a chance to win!

Donna said...

Thank you for all the wonderful pictures. I am totally in love with Sandy Gervais' Rambling Rose fabric and her awesome Broken Dishes quilt.

Ralene Butcher said...

Love Edyta's Hearts Content. Can't wait to see all of these newbies in my local shops.

Sheri said...

It was very fun to "go to market" via your presentation! My favorites are the Pedal Pushers hat quilt and the Minnick and Simpson zig zag quilt with the bunnies and leaves borders. I just bought a charm pack of Be Jolly by Deb Strain and was excited to see her booth too.

Tania said...

Hi Sherri, I love Hearts Content, that Schoolhouse quilt is just beautiful. It sounds like you had the best time at Quilt Market!

Beth said...

Both the Hearts Content collection and the Broken Dishes quilt made my heart beat faster! Love, love, love them--thank you for sharing.

Hildy said...

There's a favorite to pick? Though choice. I love Fig Tree (aren't these minis cute) but Vanessa Groetzen stole my heart a bit at the Moda Schoolhouse YouTube video she was so cute!
Thanks for sharing all the Quilt Market fun with us love your pictures!

Granny's Button Box said...

Wow, beautiful quilts and fabrics. Thank you for sharing your trip. The fig tree fabric colours make me happy.
regards Sharon

QuiltSue said...

I've loved seeing all the new fabric designs that we can look forward to. I think my favourite things though are the Zen Chic quilt and the Modern Neutral fabrics.

kt said...

Love getting a glimpse of market. I really like the quilts you've shown by April Rosenthal--just love the bright mix of colors in them! Will definitely be looking out for her fabric. Thanks for sharing!

Malinda said...

Thanks for showing us the goods from market! I've added a few must-haves, including Me and My Sister's latest!

Brenda said...

My favoarite thing? You've got to be kidding! I guess I could pull out Mr. Random Number Generator as a last resort. But at or near the top: Edyta Sitar, anything. Brannick and Simpson, love the blue and white, rabbits . . . . Janet Clare, Hearty Good Wishes quilt w/ sea creatures(?) appliqued in alternate blocks, also cat quilt. Zen Chic, modern but not in your face. If I were ever to attend one of these, I'd love to have a bag like Santa, holding infinite more than appears possible from the outside, and I'd walk by those displays of precuts and kits and . . . drool.

Linda Cates said...

What a great post! Thank you for sharing and for the giveaway. I'm so glad you shared Sandy's pattern Broken Dishes. I kept going back to look at. I love everything Edyta Sitar does and Lauren and Jessi Jung - well you are so right about them! Love them too. Thanks as always for your generosity in sharing so much!

Sherry Riggs said...

Sandy Gervais's Broken Dishes quilt would make such a romantic- looking wedding quilt. I just love it and to see the new designs and colors from market. Thanks for the giveaway!

Amy said...

Wow! So many beautiful quilts and fabrics- I really like the Fig Tree Booth and the bright Moda quilt that the blue ribbon hung on! Thanks for sharing!

Amy (hatlevig@integra.net)

gailss said...

Could not stop looking at "Broken Dishes" by Sandy Gervias and went back several times to it...I am drooling for that fabric line of Rambling Rose and doing that pattern...thanks for all the pics Sherri

Sigi G said...

So many favorites! I think you highlighted mine too. Fig Tree Mini's warm my heart and I just love the Rubber Boots and Bonnet Quilts by Lauren and Jessi. The House Blocks by Edyta have a way of saying - 'Home'. Wish I could have been there - thank you so much for sharing Sherri!

Dorian said...

Its too hard to pick just one. I love looking at all the booths and seeing the new fabric lines and patterns. Thank you so much for the posts, I really look forward to them.

Siobhán said...

I love the Broken Dishes quilt. Edyta's quilt with the houses and applique--swoon! Absolutely gorgeous. I love Persimmon as well. Minick & Simpson never fails to disappoint--I can't wait to see what your plans are! I also love American Jane--she always has such fantastic fabrics. Thanks for sharing the pics--there are a lot that I didn't see in other recaps.

Kandy Newton said...

Hope you have now caught your breath and are recovering from all the excitement. Oooh, that Jen Kingwell quilt is rather lovely, I would love to have a go at that. The Into the Woods and Zen Chic's Figures fabric lines are both gorgeous, although all the new fabrics have possibilities - I rarely meet a fabric I don't like! Thanks to you, I've already purchased a couple of the fig tree minis patterns - you are such a bad influence (or am I just weak willed when it comes to lovely things?)!

deputyswife Deputy said...

It is a difficult decision, but my first choice is Sandy Gervais' Broken Dishes. Really love that one!

Liz Rehrauer said...

I love pillows and Peddle Pushers had great ones.

Maxine said...

Sherri, so hard to choose. Let's see I like Pedal Pushers by Lauren and Jessi Jung (when I was much much younger we had pants called pedal pushers). Me & My Sister, love the bright colors. Fig Tree mini's and Broken dishes. The list could go on and on. Thanks for sharing

Carol C. said...


Definitely April Rosenthal's beautiful starburst quilt - stunning! Actually, I loved seeing all the new fabrics and quilts! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Stacy said...

I love all the pictures of the quilts, but Pedal Pushers fabric really caught my eye!

Elizabeth said...

The Broken Dishes by Sandy Gervais really sticks in my mind - such a beautiful quilt. Quilt Market looks overwhelming and wonderful - thanks for sharing such great photos!

A said...

Phew, no chance, I love so many new fabric lines and quilts shown on the Quilt Market that I would have a very, very hard time to pick any in particular! Anyhow, thanks for sharing the pictures, I loved scrolling through them!
All the best,
Anja

Marilyn said...

Impossible to pick a favorite although I always love Sandy Klop's bright colors. Thanks for such a fun blog.

Teresa Stanulis said...

I love the Pedal Pushers line too. It looks so sweet and happy! And I have to buy that sewing machine pattern by Pat Sloan. I want to make that for my sewing room!
