I'm back from a whirlwind trip to Quilt Market in Houston. I have LOTS to share with you so expect some market posts in the next few weeks. I have a number of new books to read and review for you as well as some fun new fabrics.
Today, I'll start with the HOTTEST thing I saw at market, Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures line with Robert Kaufman. Debbie and I gasped when we walked into her school house presentation and saw the box of mini samples they were giving away. We snatched some up as quick as we could! It's a good thing I packed those hexy papers for the plane so I could start sewing with this right away.
I think these fabrics are super awesome, they are great together and I can see them going in many different projects as a texture print or blender. The landscape drawings, the topography maps, the ledger print.... It is all to die for!
I also purchased the block of the month pattern for her Local quilt. I hope to teach a class for this when Brenda open's her brick and mortar Pink Castle shop.
I loved Carolyn's booth set up too.
Look at her cute shirts quilt. I love the way she used the reverse side of the fabric for the inside neck part of the shirt. So clever.These prints really draw you in for a closer look at the quilts.
Do you see the quilting in this border? It kills me dead. So. Very. Good.Carolyn was also sporting some great clothes made from her fabrics. I stopped by each day to see her new look. These fabrics will really be great for just about any project. I can hardly wait for YARDAGE. I know I'll be stocking up!
