Quilt Market | Moda Booths

Hello! Today I'm sharing the Moda designer booths! I'm a little bit partial to this group of amazing women...I consider myself blessed to be able to associate with them at market and sometimes at other times of the year as well. I believe I learn something good from every single Moda designer at each market.

First up is the lovely Corey Yoder's booth introducing her lovely collection,

Flower Mill.  Corey is sweet and genuine, and her fabrics are gorgeous! She was able to drive to market this time and had a beautifully decorated booth!

Jan Patek was right next to me...her beautiful applique' kept us in awe, and her spunky spirit is always a delight! She was my booth neighbor at my very first market, and it was fun to be right "next door" again!

Kathy Schmidt is also a lot of fun, and her booth was also close by. She has delightful fabrics and does beautiful stitchery as well. Her comfy chair had me sneaking over to sit in it while she was away!

Betsy Chutchian is another incredibly nice, genuine, and talented quilter with a lovely collection to share. Betsy was close by, too!

Camille Roskelley's booth was just on the other side of ours. She is always a lot of fun...Chelsi and I enjoyed a cab ride to the airport with her and some yummy chips and queso before flying home on the same flight!

Camille's very sweet mom, Bonnie Olaveson was right next to Camille. She also had a lovely booth...oh, and did I mention The Good Life is a beautiful collection, too.

I didn't realize I didn't get Jo Morton's booth photo after she finished setting up.  Can I just say she is amazing? I'm sure anyone who has met her already knows that. I loved being right across from her and getting to know her a bit. I also was able to get tips from her as I thought of several questions to ask over the course of the three days. Her work is incredible!

The lovely Shannon Orr was another of our close neighbors.  Her beautiful booth featuring her Tuppence fabric was right next door, and we also got to go to lunch and dinner together a couple of times. 

Janet Clare is another one of those very sweet and genuine people. Of course we all adore her sweet spirit, her British accent, and her lovely husband Tony. Looks like I should have gone back by her booth after she finished decorating! It's hard to get pictures when the showroom floor opens as designers are busy talking to shop owners...so I took most of my photos before market opened for the first day.

Brenda Riddle always has a lovely booth with beautiful decor. She is sweet and kind, and this market we were even able to meet her father who came to market on the final day to see what market is really about!

Bloomsbury, by Frannie and Jane (Frances Newcombe and Jane Davidson) is a lovely collection designed by two lovely women. Frances wasn't able to be at market, but I was able to spend a lot of time with the amazing Jane. Jane is from Australia, and I enjoyed sitting with her at her first ever Major League Baseball game (St. Louis Cardinals vs. the San Francisco Giants).

Deb Strain's booth's are always delightful, and Deb is another one of my favorite people to see each market. She was another of my booth neighbors at my first market, and I feel like I've learned a lot from her. Plus, her husband came along and was always willing to run errands--picking up show programs for many of us!

Crystal Manning is a new Moda designer with a stunning collection. She had quilts...but she also had a lovely display of garments and wore something each day sewn with one of the prints from her collection.

Joanna of Fig Tree & Company is a good friend of mine and as always had a lovely display. She created pop-out cardboard shelves from left over cardboard on set up day, making a lovely showcase for some of her smaller projects. I pieced two of her quilts (neither in this photo) which I'll share in a later post.

The lovely Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs had a beautiful booth as well. She was able to bring some of her home furnishings for her display as well. Her equally lovely partner Barb wasn't able to make it this market.

Kristyne Czepuryk, another of the new Moda designers had an absolutely beautiful booth (and she is a beautiful person as well).  I've followed her blog for many years and actually met her at one of my first markets several years ago. It was good to catch up with her again!

The amazing and sweet Stacey lest Hsu had a fun booth with her fun novelty print collection featuring cute kitties and puppies.

Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique debuted her Farmer's Daughter collection. She is a lot of fun to be around and was instrumental in organizing our night out at the baseball field for many of the designers who attended Saturday night.

Basic Grey, and the new Biscuits and Gravy collection was represented by the lovely Allison Black! She does the quilting and some of the pattern designing for Rachel, the fabric designer.

Another new designer, Annie Brady, was close by. It was so much fun to get to visit a bit with her and get to know her. As you can see she is very talented and had a lovely booth.

Karla came to market without her daughters this time around. We missed them but enjoy visiting with Karla. Her booth is always so much fun...and it's been terrific to see the new version of their first collection, Authentic.

If you're still following along...just a few more to go!  Sandy Klop is a lot of fun, and it was fun to visit with her again this market. She was also on our flight home, although she had a lay over in Las Vegas before heading north to California.

Jen Kingwell's booth is always so incredible. It's pure inspiration. I bought some of her new fabrics at Sample Spree and can't wait to incorporate them into some new projects I have in mind. She is so lovely...it's always so fun to catch up with her and visit a bit!

Me and My Sister...Barb and Mary...both so much fun! It was great to have them both at market this time...and they also attended the baseball game in our row Saturday night!

If you love blue...Debby Maddy's fabric is for you...she had a lovely display of her fabrics...she must have been crazy busy getting ready for this market!

And...finally...Lisa Bongean's booth of Primitive Gatherings! I only got a small portion of her booth. She actually has separate sections with her wools and so many items...and she has a new product I'll be posting about soon!

There were lots of photos, I know...thanks so much for sticking through to the end...but there is so much to share this time around that I felt like I needed to devote just one post to all of the Moda designers exhibiting this market.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you for all the beautiful pictures about the moda-booths from this market.It is really interesting to have a look at all this new stuff.
It is a pitty: You forgot to make a picture for us about the beautiful Moda-booth from zen chic with the designer Brigitte Heitland. Her new fabrics, named fragile, are absolutly extraordinary - I can not wait to see the fabrics in reality!

Alycia Quiltygirl.com said...

WOW!!! I loved them all and heck yes - I was still with you!!! Did your brain just hurt from all that amazing creativity in the same room? Thanks so much for sharing with us!!

Aimee said...

Thank you for posting all the photos. I'm wondering where Vanessa from V&Co was? I love all of her stuff and hope she has a new line coming out soon.

Dondi Murdock said...

Thanks for sharing these terrific pictures. I am seriously in deep want now. Must sew many, many quilts in order to have space to purchase any new fabric. Ha ha ha. Your booth was so great. I think Creekside is my new favorite of all your collections.

Janet said...

Great Market tour...thanks do much 😊

Hildy said...

Thank you so much for sharing all these pictures with us! There're a few collections I really, really need to have:-)

Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts said...

So much prettiness and inspiration here! I love the various textures brought to the quilts by the quilting.

Red said...

Love the collection Flower Mill. All the booths were great. Enjoy the tour to the end. Thank you for taking the time to post them all.

Brenda said...

That's a lot if inspiration! Can't wait for the new fabric lines to start showing up. Thanks for sharing.

KaHolly said...

Well done! Almost as good as being there!

Helen L said...

thanks so much for sharing all the photos with us: it's alot of work just putting together a post like this! I can't wait to see some of those lines: was it just the photo, or is the American Jane line much lighter? It seemed like there was alot of white in the colors. She usually has such saturated colors. Can't wait to see Lisa Bongene's new product you are teasing us about too! :-) Hugs, H

Thank you so much dear Sherri for sharing these pictures with us. I really appreciate it. I have only been to two quilt expos locally, and they were awe inspiring. So, this would have been overwhelming for me.
I am so glad that you went, you saw, you took the photos and shared

Little Quiltsong said...

Wonderful pictures, Sherri! Thank you for sharing. I'm always interested in how everyone attached their quilts - without sewing a lot of rings or hanging sleeves behind them. The displays are all beautiful - so many fabrics and patterns that fell into my to-do list :)!
Loved seeing your beautiful display on the last post! So special that you too are a mother/daughter team.

Beth said...

Thanks for sharing so many photos. I love seeing what is coming--I'm feeling very inspired!

Leanne said...

Beautiful photos Sherri, thank you for sharing. Which was your absolute favourite booth? For me it was Thimblebosooms. I love her stuff.
