This Quilt Market was very special for me. . . in several ways. One of them being that this was the Market where my first fabric line - 'Celebration' was presented. (. . . as if I haven't brought this point up before!. . . lol!)
Lecien did a wonderful booth space for all the new lines & so there was a booth - with just items made from my 'Celebration' fabrics! It was right across from my booth & so we "had the corner" on all things 'Celebration'. . . so to speak! I have had my sample fabrics to make things for Market - but Nireko did an amazing job getting the fabrics to other designers. Wow. I was a bit overwhelmed to see so many things made out of my fabrics. . .! (My one regret is that I didn't get a photo of each & every thing made!. . .)
Here's the Lecien - 'Celebration' booth -
. . . & this is adorable Lynette Anderson in her booth, & the bag that she made with 'Celebration' fabrics. . .
. . . & here's the cute accessories that go with it! TOO cute!!
. . . & here is sweet Barbara Jones - of Quilt Soup, standing in front of one of the quilts she made with 'Celebration' (She also made another one of this design for the 'Celebration' booth! . . . Barbara you amaze me!)
. . . & I am in love with this quilt she made. . . (& I'm so embarrassed - I didn't write down the names of the designs. . . !)
Also in the 'Celebration' booth - is the prettiest table runner & little fabric picture made by Elizabeth Scott. It's called 'Celebrate Spring' . . . (isn't she clever?!)
Then. . . there is this sweet, sweet quilt, 'Promise In Paris' - designed by Keiko Clark. Keiko is a wonderful designer & you can find her designs under her design label - K Cotton Studio. (. . . also, I have found out that Prairie Queens Quilt Shop - in San Jose, CA - where Keiko teaches at - has kits available for this design! You can find it here.)
This quilt. . . 'A New Day' will soon be available as a free pattern on the Lecien website. . . so keep checking!
There were several purses & bags made , & I didn't even get photos of them all . . . or even the name of this adorable purse (so sorry!) (edited to add: I found out that this purse - 'Peony Bouquet Tote' - is also made by Keiko Clark. . . thank you Keiko!) I think it hit me so. . . that others would actually use my fabrics! So - if any of the designs that I was such a dope & didn't get the info about. . . is yours. . . please let me know!. . . (& THANK YOU!) And, a big thank you to Nireko Ohira for working so hard & getting 'Celebration' into the hands of so many people, & Lecien for providing those fabrics. You're wonderful!
(You can also find another beautiful design - by Denise Sheehan of 'A Graceful Stitch' - called Garden Stars. . . here! Thanks Denise! It's beautiful!)
I have one more "Market" post. . . about the other very special treat at Market. . . (soon!)
