Let’s get right into more of the action and highlights from the Quilt Market floor!
Quilt Market is just not Market without the fabulous Pat Sloan! We found Pat in the Moda neighborhood nestled between Vanessa from Lella’s Boutique and Anne from Bunny Hill Designs. Pat is the Aurifil Designer of the Month Coordinator and a big part of the Aurifil family! We just love Pat!
Pat has an abundance of new everything to share! Hometown Girl is her new fabric line with Moda, she has designed three new patterns, a new book, and a new Aurifil thread collection that will be available in four weights to share! She is one busy lady!
There is always a photo of Pat with Alex for Market! This year Alex decided to play a trick on Pat and not smile for the photo. Everyone smiles with Pat. So silly!
A couple of booths down from Pat was A Quilting Life with Sherri and Chelsi presenting their new beautiful vibrant colors in the collection Valley!
Many fabric designers are also painters, sculptors, architects, and graphic designers. They are not only quilting artists and love to explore their other artistic interests. One designer brought her passion for painting right into her Art Gallery booth. It was a marvel to watch Bari J as she was creating delightful art in the midst of foot traffic and chatter.
Christmas on Brambleberrry Ridge by Violet Craft for Michael Miller Fabrics was a flurry of fantastic paper pieced patterns, gift ribbons, garments and decor to bring the spirit of the holidays to everyone in your life!
It would be fun to host a Designers Day for the designers to be able to relax and hang out while at Market. Anna Maria and Joanna stopped by the Aurifil booth to check out all of the new displays and catch up!
Julie Herman from Jaybird Quilts is a fan of BOLD color, funky design and Aurifil thread! Loving her collection of quilts!
Birch Organic Fabrics presented their lovely double gauze. These fabrics are soft, have a wonderful drape and would make extra soft quilts for babies and children!
The Quilt Market Adventure will continue tomorrow on the Show Floor and a few other areas!
