I've been seeing posts and pictures and updates from Quilt Market the last few days. I was lucky enough to go a few years back (like 7) when it was in Utah. It was so much fun, and an experience I hope to get to enjoy again soon.
Although I didn't get to quilt market - I did feel a small part of helping a few of my favorite designers get ready for market.
I was so excited to be able to quilt 2 of Camille's new patterns.
First up was Puddle Jumping - isn't that just the most perfect name for this quilt?
Camille wanted the Baptist Fan for this one.
I LOVE this pattern and love the blues and greens used in this quilt. The new line April Showers is such a fun line - and has so many great prints in it.
Camille has some great pictures here and she made a multi colored version that is on the cover that is so cute too!
Her next quilt I quilted was Starlight and I was head over hills in love with this quilt. I'm a sucker for stars and this one was so cool and different from what I've seen out there. She made a version with green polka dots and a navy version. They are both great, but I loved the big star here that the polka dots form. Looking at the quilt I was thinking this would be a complicated quilt to sew together, but Camille told me it was a breeze - I wasn't sure I believed her, but once I opened up and read the pattern she was right! It actually looks like it will go together quickly and I can't wait to get going on mine!
Camille wanted the Orange Peel for her pattern and I love how this turned out. This is such a great quilt pattern. Modern yet, vintage, adds so much texture to the quilt without taking away from the pattern and fabrics. I really love how it turned out.
Its hard to see in this picture - but Camille has some great ones on her blog.
The backing for both quilts she used the umbrella prints - aren't they so cute! Can't wait for this line to come out. I'll be buying in bolts!
I also got to quilt these 2 new patterns from Sherri from A Quilting Life
First up is Splash
This quilt was made using Day Dreams by Kate Spain. These prints are bright, bold and fun! I love the checkered sashing in this quilt! Such a fun, different idea! Can't wait to make one of my own.
Sherri chose Orange Peel which looked great on this quilt - and look at the back below! How awesome does that look on a solid backing???? I love this pattern!
You can see some better pictures over at Sherri's blog
Her next pattern is called Blossoms and I can't wait to make one of my own!
Sherri chose Clam shells. I love this pattern for several reasons. I think it is so simple and understated, yet has such a bold statement. Is that possible? I thought this went perfect with the fabrics. At first glance looks like umbrellas or rain drops a little which fit the fabric line April Showers just perfect. This quilt is on my to do list in the near future.
I am so lucky to have been able to join in the pre market fun! Thanks Sherri and Camille for letting me part of this fun and crazy time!
