Quilt Market Week

If Quilt Market could have its own week, this is it!  When I think of quilters from all over the US and international countries, arriving in Portland this week, it’s mind-boggling.  Oh how I wish I could take each and every one of you to quilt market.  The excitement is building throughout the week with classes and sample spree.  Friday is opening day!

If you can’t come to market, follow along on Jolly Jabber ( the Fat quarter Shop blog)  or, on the Fat quarter Shop’s Facebook page.  You’ll get market updates throughout each day and get all the news as it happens.


“Molly” horse, my newest petite pattern, and some of her thoroughbred friends are coming along to market with me! Kim just finished stitching up a bunch of these little horses for me to take along.  See the one in the upper left corner?  She’s my favorite!  Her mane gives her that “wild girl” look!    I’m sharing space in the Moda booth this market with other designers, and these little horses will help decorate my “space”.

A Woodland Christmas

I’ve just put my newest block of the month, A Woodland Christmas, on our website!   As you probably know, I LOVE Christmas quilts and this one was really fun to design!  When the critters went up on the design wall, it was hard to pick a favorite.  Lynne, my wonderful quilter, worked her magic and brought the quilt to life.

We’ll have embellishment kits, floss kits, thread kits and…are you ready for this…pre-printed applique templates available for this quilt soon!  Yes, I’m having the drawings pre-printed on heavy-duty freezer paper so all you have to do is cut them out.  No tracing required!  The templates will be sold as a separate kit and I’ll let you know when they’re available.  A Woodland Christmas will be a fun quilt to make!

Have a great week everyone!  If you happen to be at Quilt Market be sure and come see me!  I’ll take lots of pictures at market so I can share when I get back.

  • mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I love your new Christmas quilt! Can’t say I’ve ever seen a ‘bear drawn’ sleigh before :) Cute as can be. Hope you have a great time at Market (take lots of photos), and I imagine your sweet little horses will disappear faster than you can restock the display.ReplyCancel

  • Deborah Hays - Hi Anne… it’s been forever since I have posted on your wall, but I thought I would share a picture of a box that I covered using your fabric. Working at Cozy Quilt shop, gives me opportunity to work with so many different fabrics and Daniela asked me to cover some boxed. I have always loved your line of fabric so it was easy to pick yours for one of the boxes. I pray that you are having a great time at market!! Sincerely, Debbie Hays


  • Josefina - I am just a quilter, not a designer. Therefore, I only got to see what happened at the Quilt Market from various fabric designers/manufacturers either by video or pictures. Today I had the chance to watch the schoolhouse video courtesy of Moda…the Cutting Table. I really liked the cat and churn dash mini “quilt” you presented. I have a cat and I try to incorporate something “cat” in some of my quilts. Do you have the “cat” appliqué pattern for sale? I would love to make the cat and churn dash quilt that you presented. I also liked Mollie. Although my nephews and nieces are now grown just like my 2 sons, I can still make one for myself. I am looking forward to purchasing that too. It looked like you all had fun at Schoolhouse.ReplyCancel
