Quilt Market 2014 Recap

Quilt Market 2014 Recap
May 18, 2014 nicole

Hi friends!

I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh for the day on Friday..and a few hours on Saturday. I cannot tell you how inspiring it was, how nice everyone was and just the overwhelming feeling of awe I had the entire day. Quilters are truly some of the greatest people around. It was hard to take all of the pictures that I intended to because you get so star struck by the designers that you kind of forget to take a picture or I wanted to share on Instagram so badly that I just didn’t have a chance to take a shot with my camera.


So please enjoy some Quilt Market fun –

I just wish I had taken my camera out at every booth that I loved – I missed SO many good stops. So happy that you like them, and be excited….there is some really amazing stuff happening in fabric this year!

    Thank you for sharing. It made me year up just thinking about being surrounded by all that creativity.


  1. […] with her idea I was so excited, I have been wanting to make this quilt ever since I first saw it at Spring Quilt Market last year. I also cannot wait to see Jaime’s version….in Liberty fabrics, but more on that […]

I would love to hear from you, let's chat!
