Spring Market 2011 Day One Part V

12 comments
I still have a few more market posts up my sleeve so bear with me. I'm determined to show as many pictures as possible. My memory is getting somewhat fuzzy now about names and exact details. Forgive me please. This is a jumbled post. Thanks to my daughter Shelbie for even helping me make this post happen.
Heirloom by Joel Dewberry for Free Spirit.
Mark Cesarik, Calypso Swing booth. The fabric and ideas are pretty colorful and busy but there is something captivating about it all I think.
Westminster had some interesting things. I liked looking at what they had.
We are back to Kokka. Like I said, I'm disorganized here. I wandered back and forth to this booth a couple times.
More Kokka. Love Melody Miller's stuff. I like this line better than the new one though. You can't beat teacups, teapots and vintage.
More goodies.
This is Jennifer Paganelli's booth. There was so much going on at Free Spirit when I was there as well as a radio type interview with someone else. But I insisted on getting photos.
I love all Jennifer's stuff. She's incredible. And I got to meet her. Where is THAT photo I wonder? Hmm. Lori was able to get me Jennifer's book from her book signing. And I treasure it. More on her book later.
This is from Kaffe Fassett's booth. Loved seeing all his things.
I wanted to make a Kaffe quilt this year, I just don't know when it will happen. I really appreciate his style and colors.
This is a quilt from an Australian company. Lori got some patterns here. Don't you love this quilt!
This is my Jillily Studio. They were giving out little ice cream cones and of course we had to have one. Her booth won an award. It is so incredibly cute. I love the counter top, too.
This is Jill and me...sort of a distracted photo. I think I was starting to lose it around this time. Jill is fantastic though. Her stuff is great and she's an inspiration to me. Such a great person and almost nearly neighbor since we live fairly close to each other. I am so happy to see Jill's success.
Her new line of fabric with Henry Glass called Sorbet is darling. I use Jill's Appliglue. And she inspired my family quilting retreat.
This is a booth by another friend Kari Ramsay of Fresh Cut Quilts. Kari has a new line of fabric out, too, by Henry Glass called Daisy Dance.
Isn't this patchwork dog so cute.
Kari has a new line of fabric out, too. It is from Henry Glass called Daisy Dance. It has a great vintage appeal. So cute.
Heather Anka's Treasures is another Henry Glass family girl. All those wonderful designers were grouped together. Lovely stuff.Heather's quilts are really great. The booth was so well done.
And now to other friends and neighbors down the road a piece - Jana and Shasta of Izzy and Ivy designs. These gals are going places.
Here is me and Jana. I perked up a bit here with the great energy and style. I want to make their designs for Allison! Jana and Shasta have a new book coming out. Me wanty!
Look how cute everything is on a clothesline. You can't see well from this photo but I have the fabric for the little leggings and I'm making those for Allison. Soon. Very Soon.
They had a giant cupcake and sweet labels for a favor inside a cupcake cup. Darling ideas.
I had a great time talking to Jana and seeing what they are doing. I couldn't get enough of their fun ideas as you can see me milling around in their space.
In addition to children's clothes they have bag patterns but I didn't get everything of course. Love Izzy and Ivy.
Rose Cottage by Laurie Bird is another local designer. I really like Laurie's design eye. She's doing really fun things.
This isn't Laurie but she also is with Henry Glass.
This was my last stop that day. Shelbie and I went to the man cave at Riley Blake for a bottle of water and a rest before the trek out of the market floor and to our car. And we had a great chat and laughs with Paula and Moana, neighbors and local gals to us. What fun market to remember the booths at market and have a little rest before we went home.

I have to say I asked a lot of people what they liked at market. Lots of Riley Blake love was spoke. I am super proud of the local talent from our area. Amazing to me how much is going on around me.

Utah IS amazing! Just the amount of local quilt shops -- it's enough to make a girl SWOON! Great reporting Ms. Nanette -- I sure wish I could have been wandering around with you!

What really caught my eye is Mark Cesarik, Calypso Swing. Great color combination and so different from the rest.
And ... of course the giant cup cake. Gorgeous.

I love all these Market pictures! Riley Blake is fabulous, I agree. I really love the Kokka line you showed too. Also the little girls' clothes!

Nedra said...

Utah rocks! So fun to see so much talent coming from home. Paula is a nice bookmark at the end, and I've made that cute little patchwork puppy for my grand daughter.

Still loving all the pics, you are doing an incredible job detailing everything. I am going to have to order the Calypso - Fat Quarter Shop tweeted at pic from market with Mark. I was quite shocked because I grew up across the street from him! Small world:)

I have loved every single picture - you really captured market! So many new things, new fabrics...just some more time and more money! Thanks so much for taking the time to write all of your posts about market - it really helped me feel better about not being there - because of my STUPID mistake! xo, Nan
