International Quilt Market Part 1

There is so much to write about quilt market that I have split it into several posts.
The International Spring Quilt Market takes place in May of each year. It is a trade only event and the location of the show moves each year. This year it took place in Kansas City, Missouri. On show is the latest fabrics, notions, books and everything quilting.  I love attending Quilt Market as it gives me the opportunity to meet up with our regular suppliers, to see what is new, meet up with fabric designers and author and much more.
 The Main Street of the exhibition centre
The fabric companies always put on a fantastic displays so their new collections.
 New fabric collections from Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics

 This year Shannon Fabrics has introduced Dr Seuss into Cuddle Fabric, love their display so colourful

Northcott Fabrics has a new collection from Stonehenge called Stars and Stripes. From the response that we had on our facebook page when I posted a photo of this panel, I am happy to report that we have a bolt of the panel on order and will be in store soon.

New Fabrics from Robert Kaufman. Kona Solids are going to be very popular this year

Andover Fabrics has a great display. Not only did they show you quilts using up their new fabric ranges but also bags, clothes and more using the collections. Most of these samples are available as commercial patterns.


Adorn it has a new collection with Owl's, can wait to get my hands on it!

New Fabric Collection  from Timeless Treasures. Shimmer is one of my favourites and we have it in store and are currently working on a quilt kit using this new collection.
