Take a tour!

While we were at Quilt Market, we showed some photos from our booth on both our Facebook page and Instagram account, but today we're going in depth! We'll show you the quilts and projects that were on display and provide you with information about the fabric lines and patterns used. 

A view of our entire booth: 

Do you do yoga? Maureen Stephan used our new Yoga Fabric (92% poly/8% spandex/jersey knit) to sew the jacket and pants. Comfy and stretchy! 
The quilt behind the mannequins the Paintbrush University Quilt 1, made by Maria Pate using fabrics from the initial 84 Painter's Palette Solids.
Bags on the ground, from left:
Stand 'N Stow Tote by Atkinson Designs (ATK-153) constructed by Robin Bell using Ro Gregg's Valor prints
Wine & Dine Lunch bag by Atkinson Designs (ATK-155) constructed by Maureen Stephan using Ro Gregg's Valor prints
To Market, To Market Tote (Patterns by Annie) constructed by Maria Pate using Ro Gregg's Sophisticates prints
In front: Divalicious Wallet by Sisters' Common Thread constructed by Maria Pate using Ro Gregg's Sophisticates prints

Our Painter's Palette Solids were definitely highlighted in the booth. A photo is worth 1,000 words, but when it comes to fabric, so is a touch. We encouraged attendees to touch our solids and feel their silky smoothness. 

A banner displaying our original 84 solids. This will grow before the next show!

We had several quilts showcasing our solids:

The "Spinning Palette" quilt featuring the Painter's Palette Solids. Made by Kylah Kay Jackson 

"Starry Compass Rose" by Elizabeth Eastmond and machine quilted by Denise Marieno, featuring our Painter's Palette Solids collection.

"Lighthouse Steps" by Kate Colleran of Seams Like a Dream, made using our Bayshore Snack Pack of Painter's Palette Solids

Paintbrush University Quilt II by Maria Pate, a block sampler using the newer 84 Painter's Palette Solids.

"America" by Cynthia Wismann, made using our Painter's Palette Solids combined with Ro Gregg's Valor collection (we'll have a separate post on this quilt later this week).

"Walkabout" by Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis using the Goanna Walkabout collection. Soon to be available as a free pattern download on our website!

The "Kisses" quilt by Sue Linam using our Doodads collection. Love those puffed up trapunto-style lips! Additional projects made using various prints from the Doodads collection, including the "To Market, To Market" tote (Patterns by Annie) constructed by Maria Pate, the purse, constructed by Maria Pate, and the Beach Bag (hanging at left) is Sandy's Beach Bag from The Handmaiden's Cottage (THC103).

Flights of Fancy in fabric! This quilt pattern, designed by Pine Tree Country Quilts, is available as a free download from our website and features Ro Gregg's new line, Flights of Fancy.

Linda Frost designed the Freeform quilt using our Freeform collection (plus Painter's Palette Solids). The apron is the Lilly Apron from Busy Bee Quilt Designs, and the Beach Bag is Sandy's Beach Bag from The Handmaiden's Cottage (THC103).

The "C'est La Vie" quilt, made by Maria Pate using the fabric line of the same name. And yes, that's an umbrella re-covered in C'est La Vie fabric! 

The "Asian Antics" quilt by Viv Smith and constructed by Sheila Reinke, made using our Samsara collection. Available here
The pillows are Vetmari Sewing patterns: Beauty in Bloom in the front and Swept Away in the back, both constructed by Robin Bell of Robin's Nest Quilting.

Barb Eikmeier's Vintage 30s Ruby's Treasures fabric, introduced at Spring Market and still going strong here! 

Barb's new line, which debuted at Fall Quilt Market, is Waddington Road. She's designed another BOM, shown below, and all kinds of fun small sewing projects. We'll be sharing a separate blog post to introduce Waddington Road later this week.
