First up – Tula Pink! Here is a little peek at the True Colors and Eden Collections from Tula Pink. The quilt on the left has fabrics from the Eden line, the center quilt is True Colors.
Tula had her own booth at Market, but I only have this one little picture of her fabrics, though I remember visiting her booth with the most amazing butterfly quilt – it was huge and the quilting on it was super awesome. Check out her IG feed for pictures of the quilts she had hanging on the ladder in her booth – there was a blue/green one, a purple one, and a pink/red one. The quilts are all the same pattern, but the colors make you focus on different parts.
The True Colors collection is available now, but you have to wait until September for Eden.
Here are the Modern Solids and New Bedford Collections by Denyse Schmidt. The Modern Solids are available now and New Bedford is shipping later this summer. There’s also promise of a reprint of some of the fabrics from the much loved Katie Jump Rope line – but no official announcement with a date on it that I’ve seen.
I had never heard of Anthology when I first went to Quilt Market last year. They had an amazing display of gorgeous quilts at the Spring 2014 Market, and their most recent showings did not disappoint.
First of all, I will never cease to be impressed by the use of triangles to make curves. So gorgeous. And the piecing on this – amazing.
This next quilt is called Goose Garden. It was designed by Elisa Wilson of Elisa’s Backporch Design and the pattern is available on her website. The fabrics are from Anthology’s Cosmos in the Field collection.
Here’s a closer look at some of the quilting on this one:
This is Prairie Pinwheels and it was created by Peddlers Way Quilt Company. The Prairie Pinwheels pattern is a foundation paper pieced pattern.
Last but not least, one of my favorites from Anthology – The Red Door. This quilt also uses fabrics from the Shibori Hand-Dyes Collection. The pattern was designed by Jayme Crow and is available at Bella Nonna Design Studio.
I was going to try to put this all in one post, but the Lion from Violet Craft is so amazing that it didn’t seem fair to the other quilts to have to follow it! Plus, the Michael Miller booth had SO many great quilts I want to share as many as I can with you.
This quilt pattern is King’s Cross by Tara Faughnan and it was quilted by Terri Carpenter. You can find directions for this pattern on the Michael Miller website. The fabrics are from the Melodies line by Sarah Campbell.
This quilt is called Starstruck and is by Marsha Evans Moore using fabrics from the Painter’s Canvas collection. You can find the pattern and instructions on the Michael Miller website as well.
This quilt is by Caroline Gre and is called Sea Glass Medallion. If you want to see more pictures (and you do, trust me) or buy this pattern, check out Nightingale Quilts.
Here’s the last one for today. The quilt is Birdcage on a Chain by Anna Maria Horner. It’s made with an assortment of Michael Miller fabrics. Fabric info can be found here and the quilt pattern can be found on Anna Maria Horner’s website here. Anna Maria has been kind enough to share lots of patterns, so check those out as well.
Today we are going to hop back to Quilt Market with a stop by the Michael Miller booth. Here are some quilts made with the Cotton Couture line. First, solids, starting with Twirling Trellis by Jen Sorenson.
Cotton Couture Dot by Emily Herrick.
This is Over the Rainbow by Emily Herrick. Sorry about the weird crop, there was some stuff in front of it. Here’s the pattern from Michael Miller for this quilt.
This amazing Jungle Abstractions Lion Quilt is by Violet Craft. It is a foundation paper piece quilt made with one striking large scale block and measures 60″ x 60″. If you want to make your own Lion Quilt, you can pop over to the Violet Craft website and get it there. Be warned, it prints on 35 pages that are 11×17 in size.
Here’s a link to the Cotton Couture line. So many solids! Love.
First up is this cute quilt from the Sew Fun collection by Beach Garden Quilts & Studio
A closer look at a couple of the blocks:
This one is from the Fresh Batiks line.
This is the Vintage Sunshine line by Ellen Crimi-Trent.
This quilt used fabrics from the American Made Brand and LB Basics.
The American Made Brand is a new venture from Clothworks. It is a pretty exciting idea. The goal of this brand was to produce fabrics made completely in the USA, from sourcing the cotton to milling and dyeing. The results are a collection of gorgeous solids.
If you are a quilter, check out the Farm to Fabric Challenge. It is a juried exhibition of quilts made exclusively with American Made Brand solids and will premiere at Fall Quilt Market. Registration opens June 15th, so check it out!
