Quilt Market 2017 – Open House

We just had the pleasure to be a part of the 2017 Quilt Market in St Louis, Missouri.

Our booth was set up  with a lot of beautiful projects from the Blue Sky collection, adorable quilts from the book “Little Handfuls of Scraps,” as well as a few samples from our newest collection of fabrics with Andover, Crystal Farm. For the full Blue Sky catalog click here.

There were a lot of charming projects with this collection at the Andover booth as well.

You could see blue skies in quilts, pillows and purses…

There were matching threads from Aurifil to go with the lovely shades of blues.

Some even like to dress in Blue Sky collection!

I was so happy and smiling, ready to see everyone.

Quilt Market is almost like an open house…

… a great group of friends came by to say hello for the “Little Handfuls of Scraps” book signing.

We talked about the cute projects in “Little Handfuls of Scraps” and everyone was so happy to preview our new book, “Patches of Blue”, coming out October 2017 from Martingale. It is full of wonderful blue and white quilts.

Our new quilt Lucky Charm was a hit!

Quilters canvas is our new fabric consisting of a “linen/cotton” mix with a printed layout for delightful applique and that is what I used for a background for the Lucky Charm quilt.

It is so nice for hand-stitching, you no longer have to trace your designs to your fabric. It is so easy to place your pieces in the right places to create stunning blocks. 🙂

We also took to market our chickens! She’s a part of all our patterns that will come out with the Crystal Farm Collection but more on that in our next blog post!

    When building a website, you might want to simply pick pieces which will truly affect the objectives of the website. One component of a website exactly where this is especially valid is pictures.

    So very beautiful! I will be waiting to purchase & work with the Quilters Canvas and am hoping we can buy it preprinted with the Lucky Charm quilt layout on it. Hmmm, will there be information available as to how to handle and work with the Quilter Canvas? I would be a little concerned about shrinkage, prewashing and distortion of the appliqué layout. Lucky Charms is gorgeous and I love your line of blues. So crisp, clean and yet warm and inviting. Great wonderful artistry, Edyta.

    I think the quilter’s canvas looks pretty interesting. Lucky Charm is a lovely pattern, and of course I’m a sucker for houses, not to mention blue! So that quilt is a double home run! Mama hen with her little baby chicks are so very cute too!!
