Quilt Market Minneapolis Part 2: Moda


Today I'll finish up with the Moda section. There were many lovely booths surrounding the sales tables, but the sales table section was a piece of art in and of itself. The tables were covered with beautiful fabric, and the covered chairs had coordinating bows.


 There were also lots of fun quilt quotes and inspiration photos at the tops of the booth.



 I always love visiting the United Notions section of the Moda area...there are always fun new notions to learn about, and everything is beautifully displayed.





I'll start with the Fig Tree section since I was able to piece two of the quilts for Joanna. Her focus quilt, County Fair is one you might recognize from one of my earlier blog posts...now it's been wonderfully quilted!



 I also pieced this lovely quilt for Joanna...


 and I also wanted to share this fun display she had...all of the little touches made her booth extra special!



 Corey Yoder is another one of the new Moda designers (you may be familiar with her blog, Little Miss Shabby). She and I have been following each other on-line for several years, and it was wonderful to really get to know her and spend time visiting. She is wonderful, as are her designs and fabrics.



 Basic Grey was next to Corey, and Alison was also a lot of fun to visit with. (I'm sorry I don't have pictures of very many designers...I had to get my photos before the show opened since I was in a booth this time around).



 Pat Sloan also had a lovely booth...



 as did Me and My Sister...so colorful!



 Here is the lovely Brenda Riddle's booth...




 along with Minick & Simpson's.



 Brigitte of Zen Chic was there with lovely collections ranging from darks to brights to neutrals perfect for low-volume backgrounds.


 And Erin Michael's booth was absolutely incredible. The chair upholstered in her fabric, the dresser, and of course the gorgeous floor really set her booth apart!




 Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill had a lovely booth as always...



 And Vanessa Christensen's booth was bright and fun!



 Vanessa Goertzen's booth was a lot of fun! Her butterfly quilt and mini were very popular!



 Janet Clare was absolutely lovely, as was her husband. It was delightful to get to know them both as they were just a couple of booths away from me!



 And Sandy Klop had a delightful booth. She not only had a lovely quilt with hot air balloons, but she also had made the most beautiful paper air balloons for display.


 Lynne and her husband Robert of Kansas Troubles were just a couple of booths away as well...and we had fun visiting with them.



 Jan Patek was right "next door." (I shared my photo with her yesterday).



 Here is Sandy Gervais's booth. She was one of the booth award winners!



 And here is the lovely Jen Kingwell's booth. Her booths are always an amazingly lovely feast for the eyes.




 I couldn't stop taking photos of her quilts...



 there really was so much inspiration!



Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings had a larger booth area. One part of her booth had some of her lovely new mini quilts which will be in an upcoming book.




 She also had an area featuring quilts with her new Snowman Gatherings II fabric (I'm sewing with this fabric collection right now and really love it)!



 Here is the booth of Beth from 1 Canoe 2. Beth is another new Moda designer with an incredible eye for design and color. We got to spend a little extra time with the other new Moda designers, and she was really fun to get to know!



 Deb Strain was right next to us...I introduced her to you yesterday as well...



And finally, here is Betsy Chutchian's booth. Betsy is another new designer I got to know; she has a passion for historical quilts and their stories.

I'll be back with my other favorite booths from market, and I think I'll have to do one final market post after that to share my sample spree loot and a few odds and ends!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

PS Craftsy is having a huge Memorial Day weekend sale with up to 70% off fabric...go here!

Thank you for sharing! I don't Instagram or any of those other kinds of things, so I appreciate getting a look at Market thru your eyes. You pick out the most tempting stuff ;-)

Wow-thanks for posting more pictures. I hadn't seen some of these collections, and I followed the show on instagram.

I am so excited for you and your daughter - I have followed your blog for a couple of years now and watched your progress - I loved your quilt market pics and loved your debut fabric - congratulations. Look forward to many more collections.

Love all the pictures you're sharing with it, thanks for it! Each booth is really increditable and should have one an adward (yours too)!

Kim said...

So much talent all the booths are beautiful but I just love the butterfly quilt it is on the to do list along with your quilts.

Granny's Button Box said...

Thank you for sharing your photos with us. Wish I could have seen the fantastic quilts myself but a little far away to travel (UK!). What clever wonderful quilters, yourself included. Take care Sharon x

Beth said...

Even with all the pictures that have been posted, I think this is the first time I've seen (or at least noticed) the American Jane booth. Thanks for taking us along!

Joan said...

Thanks for sharing all these beautiful photos. It must be so exciting to attend. Have a great weekend!

Karen said...

I love all the booth photos! I also agree wholeheartedly about how wonderful Corey is. We met up in January where she graciously brought some "perfect fabric" to me for a project, and then we talked quilting for more than an hour. I am thrilled to see she is a Moda designer like you are. :-)
