|Styl MOD quilt 80" x 80"|
Do you all know what "Quilt Market" is?
It's the trade show for the quilt industry, not open to the public, only to people in the trade, like quilt shops, fabric companies, craft publishers etc... So this quilt will hang in Newcastle's booth to show their new lines of fabric, that will be available for shops to buy and stock.
This time of year is often a mad rush to get product made, as many fabric companies only get their fabrics a few weeks before market. Often fabrics rcvd in limited quantities, so then at Market, buyers place their orders, and the fabrics get ordered and printed according to what they have taken orders for.
These three prints from this line, are my favorites! I loved the flower print as it gave me a natural pattern to quilt around, which added great texture to the quilt!
Newcastle has this Christmas line "WISHES"coming out, that I absolutely LOVE! You know I am an obsessed "Christmas quilt" maker! I'm eager to get my hands on this group! The lime green, red and aqua are right up my alley!
What else happens at Market?
My Book releases at Market for shops to order! Which means, I will be doing a "school house" presentation on my book, (10/26 Friday at 4:20 CTpub room 371E) A "school house" is showing new products for buyers to come and listen in, as you talk about your product. In my case, it's my book. I will be showing them quilts from the book, and chatting, and Saturday will be doing a trunk show with Simplicity at 3pm and also at 11am, a book signing!
So between making quilts at the last minute for fabric companies, and preparing for my book stuff, this is why it's been a bit quiet on the blog and very busy over here... But so much fun!
So what does that mean?
