From Jo Morton's new book Prairie Flowers Encore.
...I loved the red & white bird toile from the Jo's Variety fabric collection :)
Batiks from Andover!
I find it really interesting that some of the "modern fabrics" I saw are prints very similar to some found in the vintage quilts I own :) Hexagons were very popular at this Market too...everything old is new again! There were lots of fun ribbons and trims, and cottons are still being featured in clothing, but I do think there were less booths showing childrens clothing than in the past couple of Markets that I've attended. Handbags are still very popular, and Clover had a new template from Nancy Zieman for making ipod/tablet covers that was very well thought out. I thought the new cool gadgets were a camera for the long-armers to be able to view their quilt backs while they worked, and a neat lighted and magnified seam ripper (I can see great value in this as I get older!)
So that's my "Off the Top of My Head" report from Market. There are so many more things that I didn't mention, it's mind boggling. Tomorrow I'll show you some of the show quilts that I could photograph :)
Enjoy the day!
