Those deer-head dress forms are… weird? Creepy? Awesome? I can't decide. The fabrics are, however, undeniably awesome.

Oh good Lloyd. All those colors and patterns are making my heart go pitter-patter. A trip to the quilt market would result in my stash closet turning into my stash living room. Lucky you!

So i am sitting here with my 2 sons (3ys and 5ys) and they saw the deer display and said "awe mom how cute, can we get one of those" πŸ™‚ hehe so cute!!

I have to say those bodyless-deer head-dress wearing forms are a little, well, disturbing. They made me look twice at their heads rather than the fabrics. Or are they goat heads? Cuz you know, that would be so much better πŸ˜‰

Oh I love Japanese fabrics! They have such beautiful colors and crazy patterns! I especially loved the ribbon but I never know what to do with cute ribbon. Maybe you guys could whip up some ribbon magic!?!?

Truly yummy fabric! I wish the ribbon was a velcro and some of the fabric a nice thick flannel.
Where can we find it locally?

It's amazing to see the quilt market through the eyes of different people through different blogs I follow. The pictures you have posted are just so true to your style and I think it's so great that there is SO much creativity out there in the world that there is something for everyone!

I totally want a Hot pink and blue deer head so I can sew beautiful dresses for them to model. The fabrics in this collection are amazing and I think that's why they can use deers as their models. LOVE!!!

They are selling fabric at the quilt show right? Not just for display? I am in the Houston area and am really trying to find a way to get my butt there this weekend.

Wow, what colorful tempting photos that highlight the many new fabric design releases from our favorite designers. I can hear my Bernina sewing machine revving-up in hopes of sewing with these lovely fabrics. Sure wish we could have been to the Quilt Market in Houston with you. Thanks for sharing the excitement with us.

The colors on those quilts are amazing. I love those Tokotodolls too. I've never seen them before, but they're adorable.

The felt food and the little dolls were so cute! But those deer mannequin doll things were what nightmares are made of. πŸ™‚

BUT I WANT IT! (Veruca Salt, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Utterly Delicious. Currently drooling. How in the world did you maintain decorum? I would have been hideously embarassing. Um. . . the fourth picture fromt he top. . . I really want to order that fabric (little girls holding colorful balloons) but I did not find it in the collections at Fabric worm. A littel help? Thanx!

I freakin' love those tea party fabrics! My mom would kill for them. She is making tea party settings, tablecloths and napkins. I have to get them for her. Off to the closest quilt market I go! Where and when is the closest quilt market…?
