My mom and I just got back from Salt Lake City where we spent four days looking at all of the newest fabric, patterns and notions. We had a great time in a beautiful city and our heads are spinning with all kind of new information and ideas. Our market review demo isn't for a couple of weeks, but we just couldn't wait to share with you some of our favorite things. So here they are, Carrie and Katie's top three Market finds:
Carrie's #1 - My THREE fabric lines! (Obviously)
|The Captain Phillips Collection|
|General's Wives Block-of-the-Month|
Carrie's #2 - The Accucut Studio Fabric Cutter
|Accucut Studio Fabric Cutter|
Katie's #2 - Goodnight Moon Fabric by Quilting Treasures
We didn't get to the Quilting Treasures booth until the end of the day on Saturday. By this point I was really missing my little Sam and I just couldn't resist this fabric. This is one of my absolute favorite children's books. It's been around forever and I'm sure that all of you have either been read this book or read it to someone special. The fabric doesn't seem to be up on their website yet but I can tell you that there is a panel of "the great green room" along with a handful of great accompanying pieces. They did a wonderful job on the colors, they really are exactly like the book. This fabric will be arriving in September and we plan to do some baby quilt kits.

These are the folks that make that nifty ruler we have been carrying with the fabric guide:
So - at this market we picked up this nifty add-on thing that takes the math out of cutting squares, half-square triangles and quarter-square triangles:

The guy that sells this stuff is like the Sham-WOW guy, if you have ever seen him (I think he died - RIP), but the tools he has are so cool! We ordered some other new gadgets that aren't even out yet - you will have to wait for the details on those!
Katie's #3 - Sew many patterns!
