2011 Spring Market was amazing!

19 May

I just got back from Spring Market at Salt Lake City and I have so much to show!  I’ve noticed a definite uptick in the appearance of new, young designers!  Fresh fabric designs, quilts and more!  Whew! It was a lot to take in!  We plan on including lots of new, fresh designs and quilts in the shop!  Would you like to see some pictures?   Amanda Murphy is a relatively new fabric designer for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.  Bright, youthful, juicy colors!   She has a wonderful new Block of the Month that we will start in September.  You’ll see pictures of that soon.

Meg from Crabapple Hill did it again!  Her designs are fabulous!  Halloween is big at Crabapple Hill and you will find her patterns at Quilter’s Emporium this week (as soon as the boxes are received from UPS)!  Calendulas Patterdrips Cottage was the focus quilt – great!  And then you know, she has designed some fabric for Lecien!  Congratulations Meg!

The Witch’s Boot was such a great design as well.  Can you tell I like Halloween?   I love that Meg has incorporated crayon work in her designs.

Rachel Ashwell has a new Shabby Chic fabric line, which I bought, and she has a new design book!   It was wonderful to meet her.  

Of course Moda Fabrics is front and center with their great fabric and debuted several new block of the month programs.  We are incorporating one from Edyta Sitar, a shop favorite in our fall line up, and it’s not for the faint hearted!
