Quilt Market 2015 Review Part 1

Things are finally settling down now that Quilt Market is over.  Now the fun job of reviewing everything we saw starts!  I took over 600 pictures and that's not including what Queen Bee took with her phone!  We saw so many amazing new fabric lines coming out, new products that are available, and new patterns and books that we want to add to our website.  I'm breaking my Market Review into two posts, simply because there is so much to post about!

First, I know everyone is excited about the new Tula Pink line, Chipper!

Chipper is a great line to pair with her other lines.  We were sad that there were no big faces in this line, but there are some really cute foxes and chipmunks!

Tula Pink is also developing a line of hardware!  8" Shears, Surgical Blade Seam Ripper, and Thread Snips.  We have them up for pre-order currently.

Also, I ran into Tula Pink herself on the market floor and we just had to take a picture!
She loved my bag and wallet set, made by Tilly T Boutique, out of Elizabeth.

She also signed my Tula Pink coloring book for me!

Another big thing that we're excited about it Art Gallery is releasing a line of Denim!

Included in the line are a variety of printed denims that are soft to the touch and hold so many possibilities!  And a heavier denim, perfect for those rough and tumble boys in our lives!  And the rough and tumble girls, too.  They can be just as hard on their clothes!  We will have the pre-order up soon in our group, so make sure you join us!

Art Gallery has some beautiful lines coming out soon and we've had the pre-orders up in the group already.  You can see them all in our group albums.

Cotton + Steel knocked it out of the park with fun, playful lines this fall, with names like Cat Lady (which Bitty Bee is *very* excited about) and Macrame.  Pre-orders are going up soon!

Lewis & Irene is another company that we were in awe of.  They joined the fabric world last year and have been an instant hit in the sewing world.  Last year, their Spring Hare line completely sold out of the warehouse and was in high demand.  This year, they have more lines!  I had to break them into three collages to include all of it!

Mermaids, beach life, bunnies and hedgehogs!

Circus, bike rides, fairies, and a trip to China!

Two great Christmas lines, one of which has panels for Christmas stockings and an advent calendar!

We love getting to chat with Brian from Lewis & Irene and finding out the 
inspiration behind some of his fabric designs.  

Quilt Market 2015 was a lot of fun, we saw a lot of great things to bring to you, and this is just the tip of the ice burg!  Tomorrow I will be putting together another Market Review post to show off more of what we saw!
