We are back from Quilt Market for Spring 2009. We’ve had a chance to soak our tired feet, unpack our suitcases, fondle our new fabric treasures, and get back into the swing of things. We thought we’d share with you what the hot new trends are and a behind the scenes look at Quilt Market.
CONTEMPORARY is all it!
Amy Butler style fabrics were in every fabric booth. We didn’t see much of anything else. There were very bold large prints in quilts and everything home decor.
What were the main colors that we saw?
- black & white
- chocolate brown
- bright red (not dark)
- bright yellow
- light to bright chartreuse – very yellow on all the greens
- turquoise – light to bright
- hot pink
Black & white with one of the above bright colors was very popular.
Bags, bags, bags – this trend still going strong!
Still lots of dots!!!· · · · · · ·
There are a series of new dies for the AccuQuilt GO!™ Fabric Cutter. You can see them below. And check out this cute bib made with the Critters Die Set. Keep your eye on our AccuQuilt GO!™ Patterns for projects that will use these new dies.
Fun at Quilt Market!
As a final treat, we’ve put together a slide show of some of the fun we had at Quilt Market. The show starts with a river dinner cruise sponsored by FabShopHop.com. You can see the convention center floor and our booth as they come to life. And then check out all the quilting celebrities. Keep your eyes open for Fabio.
We had a great time at Quilt Market (as always). We’ll be back at the Fall 2009 Show in Houston. In the meantime, our designers and book authors are busy working on some of these new trends we spotted. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
