After a whirlwind trip to Minneapolis where the fabric world converged for International Quilt Market, I am inspired and excited.
I saw my friends Leanne from She Can Quilt, whose beautiful quilt is on the cover of Canadian Quilter magazine this month, I met with Krista of the fun Poppyprint blog, she has a new book out (coming soon to Fabric Spark) called Make it Take it. I also met up with a few other fabric store friends who swapped advice, learning and funny experiences with me. And, I met some great new bloggers and industry watchers who are a good source of information, news and great insights.
But, the main event is always the fabric. I saw fantastic new designs and have ordered what I think is the best of the best to arrive over the next several months. There are exciting new collections coming from different parts of the world, some new designers and beautiful new work from designers you already know and (probably) love and some inspiring new colour choices and design themes.
And, if that wasn't enough, when I got home, I got to unpack some beautiful new arrivals that I ordered before market and has just showed up. We have these fun new fabrics to play with...
We have the new Succulent collection by Heather Givens
We have new map fabric, making me very happy
We have beautiful new Fiesta Wovens from Moda.
There is lots more so check out the new fabrics and keep watching for lots more wonderful design and colour inspiration coming your way.
