Quilt Market, Part 2


We’re back with our last wrap up post from International Quilt Market! One exciting thing about Quilt Market is the opportunity to see all the beautiful booths created by our fellow designers and industry professionals. There is so much hard work that goes into each and every detail, and we’re excited to share some of our favorites with you!

We stopped by the Marcus Fabrics booth to chat with Aurifil designers Sarah Maxwell and Victoria Findlay Wolfe!

This year, thanks to Facebook, we broadcasted live videos right from the exhibit floor! It was a blast getting to interact with the designers while showing off their booths and new projects.


The Moda Fabrics booth had quite a super theme this year. 😉


We loved exploring the booths of our Moda Designers and cannot wait for these new fabric collections to come out. Which one is your favorite?


Patty Sloniger and Sandra Clemons are two of our new Aurifil designers with Michael Miller Fabrics. Their new collections are bright and beautiful!


We stopped off at the Windham Fabrics booth and had such a blast catching up with Aurifil designers Carrie Bloomston, Angela Pingel, and Heather Givans. Heather‘s new fabric line, Literary, brings out the bookworm in all of us!


Tammy Silvers has a beautiful new collection and we loved hearing more about it on our Island Batik booth tour. We loved getting the full tour from Elizabeth Phillips, along with the opportunity to check in with fellow Island Batik Designers Barbara Persing of Fourth & Sixth Designs, Audrey and Cheri of Cheri Good Designs and Jackie Kunkel of CV Quilt Works.


Our walk through of the Robert Kaufman booth was so much fun! We loved having Elizabeth and Nicole guide us through the booth meeting each of our Aurifil designers.


Do you love the Hoffman Challenge? We chatted with Michelle at Hoffman Fabrics about next years amazing fabrics, and of course the coordinating Aurifil thread collection!

There is so much to see at Market, and there never seems to be enough time to catch every little thing. Here are more of our favorite things from around the Quilt Market exhibit floor!

We had an absolute blast and cannot wait to see everyone again next spring in St. Louis, MO!
