2012 Spring Quilt Market in Kansas

I need to first announce the winners of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 5 book.

Lisa Marie
What a cool block! I've only recently jumped on the solids bandwagon and I'll have to give this block a try. Thanks for the chance in your giveaway! 

Joan M
Hi Jina. I also like the pop of white in your pink and grey block. Thanks for the chance to get my hands on all the lovely blocks :-) 

If you could all email me and send me your address I would love to send these books along with a surprise.
Thanks for the comments and support.

This is the Riley Blake Design booth and as you can see it is the end result of hard labor to get this structure up. We have a wonderful crew of Riley Blake Hot Guys that work hard to make this happen. (see my pinterest board to see these guys in action.)

Here we have featured the Ombre dot. This dot starts light on both selvage edges going to dark in the center. It is a fun concept that a lot of people like. You can make all kinds of fun projects. My favorite are these ties which I made using the pattern "Little Guys Ties" by Little Londyn. 

Above we have organic cottons in Zoofari designed by Doodlebug Design.

Costume Clubhouse was designed by Sheri McCulley Studio.

Santa's Workshop is a Christmas line by Doodlebug Design.

Avignon is Emily Taylor's next line. She made these darling pillows and quilt out of a few pieces of strike off fabric. She did a wonderful job. 

Good Life is designed by Deena Rutter. She has a wonderful line of jewelry, notebooks and clothing that match this line.

Millie's Closet is Lori Holts newest line from Bee in my Bonnet

Lori has beautiful quilts, pillows, a wonderful vintage dress and hats.

She has coat hanger covers and a great oversized bag that can carry all.

Seaside is designed by October Afternoon and has wonderful hats bags, pajamas and quilts featuring the fun prints.

Super Star is a followup line to All Star 1 and 2. It is a great boy line featuring oranges, blues, brown, grays and yellows.

Apple of My Eye features The Quilted Fish' new line by Amanda Herring.

She has easy to do projects like this crown, slippers and hat pincushion.

This tower is where we feature our kits. These are ready to go projects in a cute zipper bag with instructions for the beginner project. 

Our solids and shades feature our high quality cotton.

So many fun projects are featured with the solids and shades; quilts, bags and clothing are just a few.

Song Bird is a beautiful floral line designed by Carina Gardner.

She has wonderful patterns also featuring quilts and clothing. My favorite is the maxi dress by Create Kids Couture.

Pieces of Hope is our charity line for the year. A significant portion of the proceeds will go towards the awareness of Autism. Jenna made this quilt and pillow with a few strike offs I gave her. It shows the bright fun colors and puzzle pieces. 

Peak Hour is Kellie Wulfsohn's first line with us designed after her Peak Hour quilt. It is a great selling line for boys and features cars, newspaper adds and signs.

Marguerite is designed by Cyndi Walker of Stitch Studio. It has beautiful corals, yellows and aquas, set against the white the colors pop.

Dress Up Days is designed by Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs. This features a panel with a doll and 3 outfits that can be made. Super Cute!


Puppy Park is designed by Bella Blvd. Cute little vignettes of puppies and dog houses with wonderful coordinating prints of dog bones and large dots.

The Simple Life is by a new designer called Tasha Noel. She does wonderful red work and shows her beautiful embroidery in these pillows.

Willow features organic cottons and is designed by My Mind's Eye.

Vintage Baby is designed by Lori Whitlock and showcases cute juvenile prints to make darling items for a nursery.

Showing our Sew Together trims. 

I made these baby onsies with a lot of our rosebud trim, stretch elastic crochet lace and many other fun trims that we have in bight colors.

Alpine Wonderland is another line designed by Sheri McCulley Studio. A beautiful Christmas line.

On the front of our booth we debuted the chevron. We are coming out with new sizes and you can't belief the chevron craziness. We showcased a lot of designers wonderful new patterns with chevron.

The bright colors were a fun pop of color for the front of our booth.

This is our QR code quilt designed by Deonn Stotts group in Heber. It was a contest quilt for the Riley Blake Design challenge at HMQS. The concept is cutting edge quilting. If you have a microsoft tag you can scan the center of the quilt which goes straight to the RBD website. There is a code in each corner and those go to different features on the website. It's ingenious and we love the concept.

Bohemian Festival is designed by Lila Tueller Designs. She does wonderful patterns with our laminate product. If you haven't tried our laminate you need to feel how soft it is and how great it is to sew with.

These are showing pictures of the whole booth set up.

It was a great show.

Hope you enjoyed.

I took a lot more pictures of the booth, so if you are wanting more please let me know and I will send them to you.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Wow, market looks so amazing! I hope I get to go someday. Thanks so much for the magazine I won in the drawing! I've sent you an email.

  2. Actually these photos (and most from "market" on blogs) are so busy that you can't really see what is what... the color of the fabrics, but the rest of it does not stand out. Before I wrote this I looked at many of the pics in BIG mode and it is still difficult to focus somewhere. One thing for sure... quilting fabric is going to "crafts"...

  3. I always enjoy seeing the booths at the show. thanks for sharing.

  4. Riley Blake is so grown up now. Everything is in a great range for any quilter. Of course I adore Lori's stuff. The ombre dots line is so good and versatile, too. Chevrons are everywhere! So sew cool. The booth all looks great. I can't even begin to appreciate the work that goes into it. As I was entering the roundabout yesterday I was thinking how you and Cindy must be heaving a sigh of relief but also planning next market, and the next!!!

August That Alpine Quilt Group

August has come and gone.Here are the  pictures of That Alpine Quilt Group show and tell and then quilts by Konda who owns
I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

Love the red and yellow.

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.

I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.

This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 

I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 

I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.

I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
