Quilt Market–wool

First, thanks to all of you for your sweet thoughts about Janet.   I’ll keep you posted on her recovery.

So, those of you who know me or follow my blog on a regular basis, know that I’m completely obsessed with all things wool.  Starting with pictures of my favorite designers and booths seemed like a logical choice to me. 

Since Primitive Gatherings was right across the aisle from our booth, I ventured in there more times than I can tell you.   I took tons of pictures but for some reason, the ones I loaded onto the iPad were deleted off the camera card.  I think Anna showed you some of them so, these are the few that I took later in the show.

Nick showed us a playful side on Halloween.

Behind him is the beautiful Block of the Week that Lisa did this summer.   If you didn’t order the finishing kit because of their photography of it, there are still some available if you call the shop.   Trust me…it’s stunning.

Off to Heart to Hand to see what was new. Kathi never disappoints.  Check out these wonderful new patterns.

Then it was over to see Cathy at The Cottage at Cardiff Farms.  More fabulous new stuff!

This next tall pillow is going to be a pattern in an upcoming issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.   Can’t wait!

The top 2 purses were made using the Japanese Daiwabo fabrics.  So classy looking.

I might have drooled all over this next one. In fact, I loved it so much that as soon as I got home I ordered the kit from JJ Stitches.   It’s on its way!  Woo Hoo!  Give them a call if you want one too.

Cathy told us that she has a new book coming out in the spring with Leisure Arts.

Another stop had to be Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine’s booth to see all the great new projects that are in the Winter issue.

This is the lovely Gretchen.

It was so fun to see the projects in person.  Their photography in the magazine is spot on gorgeous, but it can never match up to the real thing.   This table runner was breathtaking in person. It’s going to make it onto my “to-do” list.

If you haven’t gotten a subscription of the magazine, you really should.   They have 3 issues out and every one of them has inspiration and eye candy galore! 

That’s it for the “wool”.   Some of my other favorite designers weren’t there but, my goodness, how much can one person do?  Oh, I can only dream about making up everything I saw.

If you like any of the patterns I’ve shown, Karen at The Primitive Thread has some of the patterns.  I know this because we walked the show together and liked all the same things.  Right Karen?  So, send her an email if you’re interested in purchasing any of them.

Next up….favorite people.  (not to say that these wool designers aren’t some of my favorite people…Yikes, don’t want to get myself in trouble here…Winking smile)

Hugs, Anne

Looks great to me!! Of course, I am a wool lover too!

Karen said...

The wool piece from Primitive Gatherings (second photo) is the one that grabbed my attention the most. I am so glad that you shared pictures of new wool patterns that will be available. A feast for the eyes.

Anne, thank you so much for the market-wool pictures. I've seen tons of market pictures but none like yours-way too many 'brights'. I love all the patterns in the Primitve Quilts magazine, it's just which one first?

Colleen said...

Droooooling over all the goodies! Thank you for the show :o)

paulette said...

BE still my heart!!!! Thank you for sharing your market pictures with us...did you hear the ohhhhs and ahhhhs...I know EXACTLY what patterns I'm going to be buying! thanks again!!

Anne, I've never used wools. In fact, I've not done much applique at all, but I am absolutely loving some of your work and some of the pieces you show -- especially that holly leaf table runner. A friend at sit 'n sew shared her Primitive magazine with us and it sure looks interesting.

Do you use washable wools? Give this beginner a primer on using wools, okay?

Mary said...

Oh I want it all!!! Thanks for sharing,Hugs, Mary

Tammy said...

Oh, my, could you show something I don't like? Going to get in trouble again; more patterns, more wool to buy. Ooo la la! I love it! Thanks for sharing!

Sue said...

I am here and enjoying all the wool I am seeing.

Yvette said...

Thank you for the tour of booths. I was drooling all over my keyboard.

Nancy said...
