Quilt Market

Is everyone else as excited as I am to see all the new designs and fabrics at Quilt Market?

I've been trying to follow the Fat Quarter Shop on their Jolly Jabber blog and Facebook and Twitter, but they're posting things faster than I can keep up! LOL. There are buttons on the right side of their blog page that will connect you with their constant stream of posts on Facebook and Twitter. Go ahead. Poke those buttons! I dare you!

Guess I need to start making a list and checking it twice! I find that if I do that, then I'm not sidetracked when it comes to poking buy buttons.

But while everyone is in Houston seeing everything up close and personal, those of us who can't go need to have some fun, too! I'll bet you agree with me!

Leave a comment to tell me which of the lines or patterns at Market you are most excited about getting when they are released for sale. I'll leave this open until Monday night, 10/31, when I get home from work. A winner will be chosen to win a $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop so you can purchase some of your favorite fabric when it arrives there!

Can't wait to see what you all are going to choose! Maybe I ought to hold off on my list until I see what everyone wants! :) Remember, you must have a new line or pattern or book, etc., in your comment to be eligible for the drawing.

Good luck!

Papillon is wonderful!! But I will have to scan for more photos by all the designers to see what else might catch my eye. lol

Carol said...

I enjoy seeing the quilt market updates on the Jolly Jabber too. I just love the new 3. sisters fabric Papillon. It's just beautiful.

I'd get something by Aneela Hoey -- her stuff is just so darn cute, I feel like I should have some of it, even though I don't know what I'd do with it! LNMFERG@yahoo.com

Carol said...

I'm loving the new Fig Tree group Califorina and Minnick and Simpson's Prairie Paisley II and 3 Sisters Papillon...I may be in trouble...LOL!

I love fig tree quilts. And California girl looks great! Thanks for the generous giveaway!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Gosh it looks like I'm not the only one to get excited about M&S's Prairie Paisley II and FT's California. LOL Of course there are so many other beauties too~ hard to choose! Have a happy day!

WoolenSails said...

That is like taking a kid to a candy store and asking him to pick one thing, lol. I am loving all the fun kid prints and the new primitive and civil war prints. I would love to get some more of Barbara Brackman's new 1864 prints.

angela said...

FOR SURE Amy Butler's Husband has the best fabric coming. I expect Parson Gray will be the new fabric designs to stalk every market!

Priscilla said...

Lush is so bright and happy! It's fun to see the new things that are coming out.

Becky S. said...

I have been following the FQS on Twitter too. MY wish list keeps getting longer and longer. I am most excited about California Girl, Rouenneries Deux and Good Fortune by Kate Spain. Thanks so much for the fun giveaway!

Kathie said...

I could never pick just one line of fabric I am excited about! I would love to buy some of the new line by Minnick and Simpson's! I would love to buy the new line by Barbara Brackman 1864 and I would love to buy the new lines by .....you get the idea
Kathie in snowing nj

Carolyn said...

Love all the fabric from Joanna of Fig Tree!

Becky said...

Hmm, I don't know which one I'm most excited about buying since a lot haven't shown their lines yet! I'm most excited to see what Tula Pink has up her sleeves though.

Kathryn said...

Oh, that Jane Sassaman fabric is stunning!! Kathie L in Allentown

Mary said...

I'm most excited about seeing the quilts Jo Morton has made for her Jo's Little Women's club 11 and also her new applique book.

Vicki said...

Oh, dear...This is SO hard to choose! Minnick and Simpson's Prairie Paisley II is spectacular, and 3 Sisters Papillon is irresistible! Which to choose? Be still my heart!! OK, 3 Sisters Papillon it is! Thanks for the chance to win.

Chelsea said...

I guess I'm going over to the jolly jabber next! I'm most interested in the flea market fancy reprint.

Manda said...

Oh your right, clicking that twitter button is dangerous!
I like the look of Papillon and good fortune!

Doodlebug Gail said...

TWIRL by Me and my Sister Designs - lovely, bright and happy just like all their other designs.

Dee said...

I'm not sure yet what's coming out! But I did see the mew 3 Sisters line on the Jolly Jabber and it's gorgeous of course. I'm also looking forward to Rouenerries Deux (I'm sure I spelled that wrong). I'm looking forward to market updates so I can see what else is coming in the spring!

Stitched With Prayer said...

I have been watching too, but of everything so far, I'm torn between Prairie Paisley II and Papillon. Right now Papillon is winning, it looks so elegant. But like you, I'm finding it hard to keep up and I think I'm on overload. Maybe that's why I keep going back to Papillon, I find the colors are also very soothing. As for patterns, I know Carrie Nelson isn't at Market this year but I'm really itching to have a copy of her newest Schnibbles book. Hugs...

It's got to be the Ruby line. I used to be scared to death of red and aqua ~ Now I can't seem to get enough of it!

scottylover said...

I love the look of Parson Gray's Curious line, and the Prairie Paisley II from Minnick & Simpson is gorgeous! Hard to pick just one!

Jackie M. in La. said...

I really like Prairie Paisley II. I'm collecting red/blue/tan for the Dear Jane I want to start in 2012. One new project to work on and the rest of the year should be spent getting the UFOs under control. I wish!

Sally said...

Vickie, that Papillon line is really something else! I'm not normally a pale kinda person, but it sure did reach out and grab me by the throat! Now to wait patiently till it comes out at my LQS!

katie z. said...

Pavilion is beautiful!

Sallie said...

I love Summer Breeze II by
Sentimental Studios for Moda Fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway!

Cathy said...

OH man! So many pretties but Papillon looks lovely!

Laura said...

The original Prairie Paisley line is one of my all-time favorites, so I'd love to get some Prairie Paisley II!

Pat said...

Butterscotch and Roses by Fig Tree and Prairie Paisley 2 are tops on my list!!! Thanks for the great giveaway and a Happy Halloween to you.

manybooks said...

Oh, so many! I think Good Fortune is #1 on my list, followed closely by Twirl which I'll need for my daughter :)

Susie said...

I'm looking forward to 1862 Battle Hymn by Barbara Brackman. The fabrics look great but I think at first thought, the name of the line is what perked my interest the most.

Kate said...

Um, like I could choose? I like the looks of Papillon, and School Days, and Luscious. Oh, and California Girls! But I cheated and saw that on the Fig Tree blog.

luvtoquilt said...

So far is Papillon by 3 Sisters -- love the colors!

RenegadeQuilter said...

I am excited for Julie's two new quilt patterns from Jaybird Quilts.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Megan said...

Hmmmmm, either Fig Tree's new line California Girls, or I also have my eye on a few of the prints from Kate Spain's Good Fortune line. Those Fat Quarter Shop girls keep me in constant trouble with all the eye candy!

dianne said...

i still want Little Gatherings, even if they aren't new ... and Buttersctoch and Roses ... i do like the pattern Swoon, too - it looks like snowflakes to me

rebecca said...

Yummy nw Minick and Simpson Prairie Paisley II for me!!

Anonymous said...

The new book by Vanessa Christensn sounds interesting. I liked the posted photo of her quilt with the doilies. Also, I can hardly wait for Jo's Little Women Club 11. Thanks for the give-away.

Echo by Lotta Jansdotter But I am also loving the new Fig tree line...Joann a always moves the needle for me!These two lines are at opposite sides of the spectrum but I like my quilts like that...one of this another of that...lol

Anonymous said...

I like all the new lines I have seen so far but I like Lori Holt's
Daisy Cottage the best I think. Twirl comes in a very close second. Thank you for the chance. Pet Penny for me. dorthac@aol.com

Yvette said...

How can I choose?? This is so hard but I have to have the new Daisy Cottage line.

Susan said...

I like black and white fabrics so Tuxedo Collection by Doodlebug Designs really caught my eye. I also like Rich Soil Secret Garden by Lynette Anderson because I am in love with Pat Wys new book "Spotlight on Neutrals".

Quilt Hollow said...

I hope to see some new Jo Morton stuff and anything civil war! Oh gosh...but then the new line by Three Sisters....oooooooo. I'm twisting hands here in anticipation of more photos from any of those lucky to get to market!

Staci said...

Right now I am loving Dear Stella, but I'm still eagerly awaiting photos of the new Fig Tree Line, as well as American Jane, Basic Grey and Bonnie and Cammile's next line. I love seeing all the new fabric and patterns, as well as the new trims and notions. Thanks for the great giveaway! You'll be making someone very, very happy!

Vickie E said...

I would get something in SaltAir and Tradewinds by Moda...love those lines...and love the FQS posting all the pics and stuff.

Heather said...

It's all too much...and I LOVE IT! Fig Tree's California Girl and Blackbird Design's Meadow are my favs.

Suburban Stitcher said...

I think that I'd have a hard time deciding between lush, good fortune and also salt air. the yellows in salt air are GORGEOUS!!!!

Penny said...

Glad you were back to posting yesterday, Vicki! Hope you will be able to sew & post regularly very soon! Had to chk more "Jolly Jabber" quilt market posts today and Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket has really caught my eye! Penny

Deb said...

There are so many...Twirl by Me and My Sister is beautiful, Sweetwater's Reunion line is really nice too! The new line Curious Nature by Amy Butler's husband is really neat, would make a nice quilt for my husband or son. Been trying to keep up with FQS blog but it's just too much. Thanks!

Suzanne said...

I am looking forward to the Salt Air collection and the new one by BasicGrey! But they are all so fabulous!! Thank you for the giveaway!!!

Glenda in Florida said...

Hmmm, I just got an error message, so sorry if this repeats.

I like Fig Tree Quilts California Girl, but I'm thinking that the BOM by Swirly Girls Design Micheal Miller Weekend Club House might keep me on track to finish a top in small bite size pieces.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Carol said...

The new Collection for a Cause - Friendship is my favourite, but there are some other great collections coming. Lots of button poking in the future.

PJ said...

oh so hard to choose. Papillon. Such a pretty combination.

Patty D from NC said...

How fun. I'm interested in reunion. Love seeing the market photos

Anonymous said...

I think I am in agreement with alot of the others, Vicky...I like Papillon too.

Hugs,
Sheila

greg said...

I'd pick up the new California Girls by Fig Tree - love those new, bright, clear blues! Or maybe Aneela Hoey's A Walk in the Woods with all those foxes!

epban said...

I'm liking Daisy Cottage! Great designs and pretty colors!

Threads by Terry said...

I would love some Dr Suess. I have a grandson that I made a baby quilt with one panel and would love to make a bigger one for him

quiltmom said...

There are so many beautiful fabrics Vicki- it is so hard to choose- The fig tree fabrics are beautiful and the DR. Suess fabrics are so much fun.
I do enjoy the Fat quarter Shop's blog too- they are posting often.
Thanks for the chance to win such a nice gift certificate.
Regards,
Anna

Lisa said...

Papillon and Califoornia Girl caught my eye. If I had to pick only one...hmm...I'd pick... Papillon! CG is a close second. Love them both!! Thanks for keeping us inspired. ~~Lisa

Amy said...

Salt Air by Cosmos Cricket is adorable!

charlotte said...

I just finished looking at all their pictures on Facebook. I am lusting after Reunion by Sweetwater. The Heart pattern they made for market is so cute and the colors of this new line are calling to me. The new line by Amy Butler's Husband looks goo too. Very masculine colors so maybe I could make a manly quilt for my hubby now. California Girl by Fig Tree looks pretty too.

Marilyn S said...

Talk about making difficult choices! I have it narrowed down to 4 that I love.Lark by Amy Butler, the new blue, yellow, white & green collection by Wilmington, Papillion and California Girl. They are all just beautiful! I have enjoyed the Facebook and Twitter journey as well. Jane must have had a wonderful time! Lucky girl!

Nancy said...

hands down....Aneela Hoey and her new line "A Walk in the Woods"...love all of her lines..

Quilt Monkey said...

I am dying to get some of Lori Holt's new line, Daisy Cottage. It's not like anything else I have in my stash, but it really speaks to me for some reason. Thanks as always for being so generous with your giveaways!

Churn Dash said...

I would have to say that Papillon is my favourite! What fun to see the new fabrics at market.
Helen

Abbybeth said...

I'm so excited for Night Shade from Tula Pink and Hello Luscious from Basic Grey!

merrily row said...

California Girl of course!!

Oh, and Prairie Paisley Deux, I missed out the first time around and used all I had for some blocks for a your girl who lost her fiance three weeks before the wedding.

Diane aka cameldiva said...

I don't know this will qualify or not since she didn't have a booth at market but I lurve Julie Herman's "Come what May" pattern.

Beverly said...

Vicki,
You are a very generous blogger! Very nice to have you back.
It is difficult to choose just one fabric line, so many beautiful lines are available. I believe my biggest personal reaction was to Papillon by 3 Sisters, when I first saw a picture of it.
Thank you for this opportunity.
Beverly

Jen said...

I sure do love the blues in California Girl by Fig Tree!

Debbie said...

Can't wait for Blackbird designs new book "Weekend" the beautiful blue and cream quilt using their new fabric line Blueberry Crumb Cake. I have been waiting for this line since I first laid eyes on it so the book, pattern and fabric can't wait!!!sandcastlecottage@gmail.com Debbie
