In our industry, going to Quilt Market is equivalent to attending Fashion Week in New York! Here I am ready for another day of ordering and inspiration…
I spent the day with Rob and Penny from Checker exploring the Market floor. Here are some of my favorite things…
Kaleidoscope Kreator 3 software is one of my favorite products. It allows you to take any photo and turn it in to a kaleidoscope or a pinwheel and in almost any size and print on fabric or paper. You can make quilt blocks, labels, stationary and more.
Ellen Medlock has some of the cutest things I have ever seen, not only does she have really adorable fabric, she also has some of my favorite purses. You can do mother/daughter bags or big sister/little sister bags. We ordered the Minaudiere Bag kits and chain handles. They just came in to the shop and I plan on making a sample ASAP for Valentine’s Day.
This cute booth belongs to La Todera. I love her flowers and ornaments – I could see myself using these on everything from purses and clothing; to quilts and pillows. I’ve already made a mushroom pincushion.
Serendipity Studio – Her patterns and books are so fresh and easy. I think she has a bag pattern for everything; a lunch bag, Ipad carrier and purses of course. We ordered her new book “Media Frenzy Bags & Accessories”.
I love all of these chunky zippers. They come in many colors and you can use them in so many things. I also love to use rick rack in almost everything, it adds another little something to whatever you may be working on.
Clover Yo Yo Makers and Flower Frill Templates are quick and so much fun. To put it mildly I am simply addicted to the Flower Frill Template. You can use it for everything, and I mean everything… it comes in different sizes so you can make what ever size fits your project.
I really loved these vintage-style domed buttons. Here they are on a pillow I made using the Flower Frill Template…
Here are some pics of some of my other favorite booths:
Next time, you’ll get a glimpse behind the scenes during my recent visit to Checker. Alyssa
