2012 Fall International Quilt Market in Houston

 So here we are at the Riley Blake booth in Houston for the International Quilt Market. It is always so much work to get here and I fret that I won't have enough to decorate the booth. I really scaled things down this market and there was still plenty in the booth to display. I could never do all this without the help of the many designers and sewists who sew their little hearts out getting all of these items ready for quilt market.


This is Happy Ever After by Sandra Workman of Pine Needles. They have a fabulous store in Gardeners Village. 


Chevrons. How can you go wrong. They looked great.


Prairie Rose by Sue Daley of Australia. 




The Sweetest Thing by Zoe Pearn. Really cute knits and cottons.

  2. I love the pictures that you showed, and I love most of the fabric lines (nothing personal, I just have two daughters, so the for boy lines just wouldn't work at my house.) :-)
    I actually own some of the Polka Dot Stitches and I have to say that the quality is probably the best I've ever owned of quilt fabric (and I own TONS: don't ask my hubby!!) The colors are beautiful, and the fabric has a sheen that is almost silk like. I got my PD stitches at Material Girl in South Jordan while on a visit to relatives: do you ever allow tours of your facility? I'd love to see it sometime!! I'm in love with your company!! Thanks, Helen Lebrett (Healdsburg, Calif.)

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.







Vintage Sew Along Little Deer Block

There is nothing better than Christmas Sewing to get you in the holiday mood. The Vintage Christmas Book can be purchased through Fat Quarter Shop here All the adorable Christmas Blocks are designed by Lori Holt and you can see more of her work here.

This is a must have book in your library and there are so many projects and ideas to make...not only for the holidays but for year round quilts that can be used for any occasion.

I made the 6" Little Deer Block using Poppie Cottons first fabric line called Prairies Sisters which you can find here.

I wanted to use this cute deer block in a project bag.


All I did was add a 1" white border and a 2" colored border ...added a zipper to the top... some quilting and magically I have this cute project bag!

Please be sure to check out all the other designers here.
Happy Sewing!
