Loved the Nani Iro flannels. Picturing a long-sleeved winter dress out of the tan/beige one with big cabled tights. Doesn’t that sound dreamy? ps. Frances of Miss Matatabi has these in stock. I’ve been drooling over the stuff she’s been making with them on Instagram for months now. Gah!
This new designer (who I did not get the name of) had some neat prints, this one was a fave:
And I called this one “the cheerio print,” it also came in red/white and green/white prints with smaller cheerios that were really cute.
Also from Kokka this fall, my friend Ellen Luckett Baker‘s line, Stamped, in a very colorful display. Check out this great skirt with a triangle border:
Let’s talk about Melody Miller, who had a showstopper of a booth.
I love Melody. She is first and foremost one of the sweetest individuals on the planet. On top of that she is a brilliant designer. You probably already know that I sew with her fabrics frequently. I love the funky retro vintage-inspired vibe they have (the Ruby Star Washi dress was the most recent example of this). I’m even more thrilled with her newest line, Ruby Star Sparkle, which features prints that literally…wait for it…GLITTER. I know.
There was a lovely collection of vintage toys strewn around the booth, many of them Fisher Price (LOVE!).
I’m working on a few posts to show you some of the fun things that were at Quilt Market in Houston this past weekend. First off though, I really want to show you my favorite NEW designer/line of fabric, Carolyn Friedlander’s Architextures for Robert Kaufman, which really blew me out of the water.
What’s interesting to me about this line is that the designs are SO subtle yet so detailed…I usually fall for big bold prints but this line really captured me with the beautiful lines and textures. This was the floor:
As an ex-science teacher, my favorite prints…
I wish I could explain what was so hilarious about stumbling across this little set of canvases of Ty Pennington promoting his new line for Westmister at Quilt Market in Houston this past weekend. Perhaps it was just that I had been walking around for so long on Saturday and had talked to so many people and it was nearly 5 o’clock, but when I came across these, I just could not. stop. giggling. Is it the hat? His expression? I don’t know.
Oh Ty. You are SUCH a DREAMBOAT. Hubba hubba.
More Quilt Market highlights later, I promise.
