Link Love – Quilt Market Edition

We still have so much to show you from the glorious Quilt Market so we decided to dedicate this week’s Link Love to more cool stuff from the show. You don’t mind, do you?
Quilt Market might be over and the fabric designers have taken home their wares but you can still make your way to Quilt Festival in Houston this weekend for plenty of fabric and supply shopping and to check out some amazing masterpiece quilts.

First up, I’m so excited to share this new line from Birch Fabrics, Circa 60 Beach Mod by Monaluna, which is just too dreamy for a boy nursery. I’m considering repainting just so I can use it…

Click through to see the rest of the linky goodness. And don’t forget to leave a comment. Maybe you will win Jaime’s lil Mod Podge kit later today!
We are big fans of Oliver + S so it was fun to stop by for a visit with founder and lead designer, Liesl Gibson, chat about her new book, Little Things to Sew which comes out next March and admire her gorgeous upcoming patterns and fabric lines.

FYI – No birds were injured in the wearing of that shirt.

I also stopped by to see our friends from Simplicity and ogle their display of trim. Love that Cynthia Rowley Floral Band. Can you picture a little strip across the front of a baby (or mommy) dress? Lovely.

I was excited to see the new stuff from Cloud 9, including beautiful collections from Julia Rothman and Cut Out & Keep, and Cloud 9’s very own My Happy Nursery, which will be available from Fabricworm this month.

Love those trees for a a boy nursery!

I also stopped by the Amy Butler’s space and got a personal tour from Amy herself. She walked me through her upcoming fabric line, Soul Blossoms,  in cotton and home dec weights and signed a copy of her newest book, Style Stitches, for me. She is um… awesome.

You know who else is awesome? Anna Maria Horner. But you knew that, right? Her newest collection was on display in its cotton, velveteen, home dec, and voile glory.

Yes, that is Anna Maria Bias Tape. I could barely contain myself. Just a little something she has in the works.

I also learned that one of my favorite illustrators, Eleanor Grosch has designed a line of fabric called Zoo Menagerie for Free Spirit in cotton and cozy fleece.

I fell in love with the characters in fanciful felties and then a reader (who were you dear reader? I can’t find your email now) sent me to their etsy store today.

This book looked like my kind of quilting. Has anyone read it? It looks great.

Time to visit grammie and scavenge the  basement. Maybe you will find some vintage linens designed by Tammis Keefe as seen in an on-site tribute by Michael Miller.

Phew, that’s alot of Quilt Market Love. I hope you enjoyed. Have a nice weekend! And we will be back next week with lovely links from around the web. And don’t forget to leave a comment. You might win Jaime’s Mod Podge kit!

The quilt market looks like it was
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I love all the rickrack, ribbon and trim! I can only imagine how much I would have geeked out if I was there! Surely they all would have thought I was a loon, running from booth to booth not able to calm myself!

Also…I can't hardly wait to get my oilclothe I won! I run to the mailbox everyday! I have thought of like a MILLION projects I want to try with it….not a millimeter of that fabric will go to waste.
