Spring 2014 Quilt Market

by Katie on May 23, 2014

I LOVE MY JOB! I get to do fun stuff with pretty things and surround myself with gorgeousness every day. I get to work with the most creative, inspiring, talented people, who also happen to genuinely kind, generous individuals. I mean really, I get PAID to do this?! I know, sometimes I can’t believe it either. ;)

I’ve been to a handful of Markets during my time working in this industry, yet I haven’t taken the time to sit down, reflect, and write about my experiences! That’s crazytalk, I know, because Market is such a fun, inspiring, tell-everyone-about-it event! I decided that this Market was THE Market to put everything down into writing. Or, er, into pictures.

SO, here goes – Spring 2014 International Quilt Market in Pittsburgh!

Lovely as always, the Moda booth. I’d like to shake the hands of the people that set this thing up (this picture is one tiny corner of the Moda setup)!

Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman. Wish I could sit on that loveseat for an afternoon soaking in all the color!

Blueprint Basics by Valori Wells for Robert Kaufman. Doesn’t this just make you want to get out your graph paper?!

I love Monaluna, and of course I loved their soft yet colorful (and whimsical) booth!

Oh Dear Stella! I always look forward to seeing their fabrics…and the fabulous illustrations in their ads! I especially love their Woodwinked, Wild, and London Calling lines right now. Gimmie!

I adore the softness of this room (that features Camelot’s Iconic fabric line) – I’m pretty sure I could sleep for days on that chair.

And of course, the highly anticipated Cotton + Steel booth! It was pretty much perfect – had it not been awkward, I would have probably spent all day in there looking at every single detail. I’ll take every single fabric, thanks! ;)

I have so many more pretty photos to share – maybe I’ll get them posted one of these days! ;)
