We just got home from Quilt Market in Portland, and we had such a great time! There’s always so much to see, and so many of our quilty friends to catch up with, that it goes by in a blur. This time we were buying for the shop too, so it was even a bit busier than usual. I thought I’d share some photos of our booth, as well as a few peeks at all the awesome creativity we saw there.

 

Monaluna Quilt Market Booth - Portland Quilt Market 2018

 

Our booth was decked out with glimpses of our new Magical Creatures and Saturday collections, as well as lots of cute Journey samples, including an awesome May Chappel Blooming Dresden quilt that Janet Johnson stitched up, and Kathy August quilted. So pretty!

 

Monaluna Quilt Market Booth - Spring Quilt Market 2018

 

We introduced two new collections at this market, Magical Creatures and Saturday, and they both got great responses! They won’t be in stock until October (Magical Creatures) and February (Saturday), but I’ll have them up on the website to view next week. Until then, here’s a little peek:

 

 

 

I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I’d intended, but those that I did were all nicely coordinated: I was clearly into rainbows! And rich, saturated color. As usual, I was really drawn to the wool felt (coming soon to a Monaluna shop near you).

 

Sadly, I neglected to match this vendor to the gorgeous samples I photographed. Can anyone help me out with the company name on these felt samples? So pretty!

 

This was the “Village for All Seasons” quilt by Karen Eckmeier. Ahhmazing.

 

The Tula Pink booth, one of our neighbors. I cannot get over her gorgeous palette. And the fabrics and quilts, of course!!

There was so, so much more to see, and you should jump on instagram and search for #quiltmarket or #quiltmarket2018 for more!

Whew, what a flurry the last couple of months have been! We exhibited at our 5th Quilt Market two weeks ago, and the dust is just now settling. Every time we start the ramp-up to market it seems like such a huge project – samples to sew, quilts to make, a booth to design and build, props to buy, catalogs to compile order forms to order – but once we get there it’s always so fun, and so worth the work. It’s a great feeling to be among so many like-minded fabric lovers, and get to meet many of my on-line customers in person and see industry friends. Plus, there’s so much creativity and inspiration there! This show was busy, and the down-side of that is that I only had about 25 minutes at the end of the day on Sunday to walk the show (not nearly enough, btw), so this time I don’t have photos of the overall show, but I will share some images of what we introduced there.

 

Here are some photos of our booth from the show…
