Quilt Market , the Fall 2013 edition

We did it! One more Quilt Market, one more chance to meet our customers, designers, reps, and those who make this industry as amazing as it is. We had a great time meeting with so many, but for those of you who couldn't make it to Houston, we wanted to make sure you got to see all the fab projects, displays and people, too!

We arrived with a team to put up the booth on Thursday and for the next two days, the booth team worked their way through crates and boxes, finding and placing the many displays that had been planned. What started as utter chaos, with the help of many hands, was transformed into a stellar booth display featuring many of our Fall 2013 releases.

We were lucky enough to have a nice roster of presenters for Schoolhouses including Michael Mrowka and Debra Lunn of Lunn Studios, Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts, Carolyn Friedlander, Allie Heath, Teresa Coates and Darlene Zimmerman.

The crowd went wild with their smartphones when Julie announced her new BOM, Park Bench, using Carolyn's new collection: Botanics.

Insta-love! It's the new BOM from Jaybird Quilts.

Back at the booth, they were hanging up all sorts of fabulous quilts, including this Superkids Snapshot, made by our own Nichole Ramirez (quilted by Liz Hansen) using Ann Kelle's new Super Kids collection, some Kona Cotton solids and Ann Kelle's Remix.

There was so much cuteness in Ann Kelle's booth, eliciting squees and quick sits in the Remix-covered settee.

Loads of little projects using Remix and the new Remix Metallics, including the Pixelated Heart quilt, This and That lunch tote from Sew Sweetness, Urban Flotologie flannel footies, notebook cover, rain jacket and more. Many of these patterns will be available in the Patterns section of robertkaufman.com.

More Remix and Konas came together in the spectacular Remixed Geese, designed by Erica Jackman, sewn by our own Elisabeth Woo and quilted by the masterful Angela Walters.

 


 

Carolyn Friedlander hit the ground running with her second collections, Botanics. She spoke about the inspiration in the plants around her, as well as her architectural background.

Botanics is the name of both her collection and the appliqued wall quilt, a stunning example of her motto: Savor Each Stitch.

 


 

We're thrilled to offer up the pattern for the Cargo Tote, designed by Anna Graham of Noodlehead and featured in the Botanics booth.

The gorgeous new Lumina collection was showcased brilliantly by Judy Niemeyer in her Feathered Star quilt, featuring two colorways of Lumina with added shine from touches of Radiance.
