SIENA from P&B Textiles

Siena is a gorgeous fantasy floral collection from P&B Textiles featuring a main print with a slightly Jacobean flavor. The large flowers are striking on both dark and light backgrounds, creating a very different look with each, and with the red background as well. The packed medium-sized secondary print is loaded with additional color and texture, and the tonal gives the eye a resting place with a subtle but interesting print.

Floral Balance Quilt Kit

This gorgeous quilt kit designed by Diane Nagle is available in limited quantity.

Finished size: 50"square

Kit includes all fabric to complete top & binding.

She's a Little Bit Country ...

This lovely woman that graced our television sets so many years ago, has taken the quilting world by storm. Now, granted, as cute as she was, we know our eyes were all on Donny :)

Over the past decade we've seen Marie in a whole new way, that of a crafter, designing a collection of stunning dolls. But that's not where it ends. A few years ago she began designing fabric for Quilting Treasures.
This October we had the privilege of meeting with Marie at Quilt Market, where she introduced her new fabrics along with her promotion of her new sewing machine with Janome and her new collection of Advantus quilters storage accessories . What a delight it was to spend a few minutes talking with her. And, yes, she really does quilt! The picture below is a quilt she made just a few days before market.

Marie's newest collection, Blanc et Noir "Fashion," has just arrived at The Quilt Shoppe. Featured in the quilt above made by Marie, this new collection is a sophisticated group with a downtown flair. Geometrics combined with florals in black, white and a pop of fuchsia, this 12-piece collection is perfect for contemporary quilts, totes and accessories. To add a little variety, pair it up with fabrics from the original Blanc et Noir collection.

TQS Exclusive! We've put together charm packs and bundles of this newest collection. Each charm pack includes 36 -5" squares (3 of each pattern in the collection.) Bundles include 12 fat quarters.

The quilt shown below is a free pattern available from Quilting Treasures (it's also the quilt behind Marie in the picture of the two of us.) Click on the quilt below to download the free pattern.

The Marie Osmond Quilt Challenge starts now!! Make a quilt using Marie's fabrics and get a chance to win a prize package including a Janome sewing machine, Quilting Treasures fabrics, Advantus storage accessories and much more!

There is love in the air and a twinkle in your eye. So grab that heart shaped box full of chocolates and get to work. These adorable panels, stripes, dots and swirls will make any quilter's heart skip a beat or two. Luscious pinks, reds and a pop of green keep this Valentine's Day fresh and sweet.

Aged Elegance
3 Beautiful Quilts for 3 Beautiful Ladies! This picture was submitted by our good friend Chris C. from Australia. Here she is pictured with her quilting friends. From left to right, Dawn, Chris and Rhonda. They all worked on making these gorgeous Aged Elegance quilt tops together. Chris says, "The photo was taken by Janet the fourth member of our Friday quilting group. We have great fun each Friday taking turns to meet in each other's home. A lot of the time is taken up in laughing, talking and EATING. We have been known to get a little quilting in too!! There is nothing like the friendship of Quilters no matter where we are in the world." Thank you, Chris!

Butterfly Fling
This wallhanging was created by Adrienne B. from New York. She made this as a birthday gift using the Moda Butterfly Fling layer cake. Thank you for sharing this with us, Adrienne!

This adorable quilt was sent to us by Julie C. from Bogata, Texas. This lovely quilt was made for her brand new niece using fabric from the Giggles Flannel collection from Moda. Thank you, Julie, for sharing and congratulations on your new niece!

Whew! It's the end of the first day of Quilt Market and I guess we can sum it up in one word -- WOW!

The first day pretty much is spent at Schoolhouse. Basically it's a plethora of mini pitch-your-product vignettes from designers, fabric companies, and other quilt-related businesses. These sessions last from 15 to 30 minutes and then you're literally running to the next one. It's a wonderful opportunity to get a sneak peak at what's coming out, hear from the designers, and get a bunch of freebies.

When Schoolhouse is over, we get a 2 hour break and then its time for Sample Spree. This can be best be described as CRAZY MAYHEM! Everyone lines up, some for hours, and when the door opens everybody runs in, with most heading straight to the Moda corner. Sample Spree is just that: a 2-hour spree with about 100 vendors and the opportunity to actually pre-purchase product not yet released. I opted to stay away from the Moda corner this year, but did grab some wonderful new fabrics that will be coming out next spring.

We were able to capture a few snapshots of up and coming quilt patterns from a few of our favorites. There will be many more to come over the next few days.

This is a close up of the new "Jardin de Roses" block-of-the-month from Verna Mosquera of The Vintage Spool. It features fabrics from her brand new line "Savon Bouquet."
COMMENT: We are planning on offering this as a block-of-the-month program. If you would like to see this available at The Quilt Shoppe, leave us a comment!

Although a little blurry, this is a quilt from Robyn Pandolph's new collection, Sumptious Living. This new collection is beyond description -- it is breathtakingly gorgeous.

We had a wonderful time at Renee Nanneman's schoolhouse featuring her new fabric line, French Farmhouse, already available at The Quilt Shoppe.

These two quilts are featured in a brand new book from Sandy Klop, aka "American Jane."
We'll be back tomorrow with more pictures from the Market floor - quilts, quilts, quilts, booth pictures and pictures with our favorite designers.
Leave us a comment and let us know what you'd like for us to look for while we're here.
Until tomorrow .....
