Photo Friday: Fall 2015 Quilt Market Recap

Posted by Lynn Merrill on Nov 6th 2015

We are back from Quilt Market, and what a whirlwind it was! In case you're wondering what in the world #Quiltmarket is, it is a trade show that takes place bi-annually for the quilt industry. Shop Owners, fabric designers, pattern designers, distributors, media, publishers, and more attend the show. Quilt Market is (unfortunately) not open to the general public, but that's why we're showing you the inside scoop on all things Fall Quilt Market today!

Loved RJR Fabric's #Quilt with Love origami wall at their booth! 

Our team enjoyed these scrumptious desserts at Underbelly in Houston after a long day of set-up!

Texture everywhere!

Texture reigned as one of the top trends at fall market. These textured beauties have us very inspired...

The ChromaZone sphere by Paula Nadelstern: Paula's new fabric line adhered to a sphere and embellished with sparkly beads and pins. We wanted to take them all home with us!

The 'Vintage Gone Modern' quilt from Wool Appliqué The Piece O' Cake Way shown during Becky Goldsmith's Schoolhouse session. Look at all of those beautiful layers and texture!
