Deanne C.

Thanks to EVERYBODY who commented during the contest.  It was great to hear what you thought of the show and to know you were joining us on the journey!  Deanne has won this fun little assortment of goodies.

Six new Sweet Treasures patterns, a little “treat” from the Moda Bake Shope (a box with 3 sets of 2 1/2” squares, a roll of 1 1/2” strips along with instructions for a little quilt) and a fun Anna Griffin bag.  It’s so cool.  It looks like a little zippered pouch.  When you unzip the pouch it opens up into a great sized bag.


Hope you enjoy Deanne!!

Thanks for coming by ~ Terri

Final Market Post

So I’m going to try and wrap up the Market posts today.  There’s just so much to show.  It’s hard to pick and choose.  It really boils down to favorites.  I’ll show you more of my favorites!  Keep in mind that this is a “Quilts and Soft Craft” show.  Meaning not everything is quilts.  If it’s made with fabric ……

Serendipity Studio always has a lovely booth.

Crabapple Hill always has an incredible booth.  I love stitchery but don’t seem to be able to sit still long enough to stitch!  I’m working on that.  Lord knows I have enough patterns to keep me busy for awhile!

Bunnyhill Designs is so sweet.  Anne’s new fabric line with Moda Fabrics incorporates gray with the lovely pastels she uses.  I love gray with pastels so of course I was drawn to her booth.  So soft and lovely.

Curby's Closet new to Quilt Market and the pattern industry.  The baby shoes are to die for!!  People were nuts for these precious little treasures!  If you are local we will be making these in the Studio!

Cotton Way and Thimble Blossoms are a mother daughter team that design fabrics for Moda.  They each have their own pattern line.  I really like their fresh clean look.  Their last line “Bliss” was one of my all time favorites!

Wooden Spool Designs owner Debbie Busby is one of my favorite people to see at Market!  She’s a friend and designer of another one of those types of projects that I can’t sit still long enough to stitch!  Wool projects of all shapes and sizes.  Her projects are fabulous!

She introduced this new Block of the Month at market.  Sooo cute!  I’d have to do mine on a light background but I think it would be so adorable.  That’s the thing with these projects.  You can make them your style by playing with the color.

as you can see the wool projects make such fun seasonal accents.  OK….I’ve gotta sit still long enough to make some of these sweeties!  I love seasonal decorating. 

Debbie wasn’t at the booth when I stopped by to take pictures  :-(   or she’d be in them!

Every once in awhile a quilt just jumps out and GRABS me!  The one below did just that.  My living room is reds and golds and this beauty would fit right in.

The beauty of cameras is….. just take a picture of the details and you’ve got all the info you need. 

So below is the fabulous quilt and followed by all the info.  So simple!  if you feel the urge to order a kit like I’ll be doing…. all the info’s there.

At market there are awards given for best single booth and best double booth.  Here’s some shots of the winners.  So deserving.  They were great.  I wish my photography did them justice.

First place single booth ~ Crazy Old Ladies ~ Beachy and fabulous!  Love those red adirondack chairs!

First place double booth ~  Sandi Henderson Designs ~  Pretty Home Dec and clothing.

Last but not least Don't Look Now.  This is from a pattern designer in Australia.  So AMAZING!  The quilts are raw edge applique with very tight quilting in the background.  So impressive!!

Day 5 final day of Market

We ended market on a good note.  Happy with the way everything went and looking forward to getting home to try and resume a little normalness (nothing’s normal before market).

I’ve got a few pictures for you this evening.  Sights around the show.

Day 4 in Salt Lake City

Today was a fun day at Market!  We were very busy and received great comments on our booth and patterns.  It’s nice having been in the industry a few years now.  People recognize the brand and seek us out to see what’s new.

I took some pictures of our booth before market started this morning.  You’ll see so familiar projects and lots of new ones.

Don’t for get ~ if you want a closer peek, click on the picture.

My sister Brenda ~ I’d hate to do market without her!

There’s a small exhibit of incredible quilts at market.  Here are a few of my favorites.

This puppy quilt is soooo amazing!  Most of it is done with thread.  I’ve never seen anything so realistic!

Tomorrow market is from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm.  Then we pack up and move it all out.  If I don’t get a chance to blog forgive me.  I’ll be back on Monday.  I have lots more to show you!

Thanks for visiting!

Day 3 in Salt Lake City

Opening Day!  We had a great day visiting with shop owners, giving them ideas and sharing stories.  Quilters are fabulous people.  Those we visited with seemed to like our new patterns and that always makes me feel good.

Here’s a couple shots of the show floor from above.  This will give you a little idea of the magnitude of this show!

I didn’t get out of our booth much today but here’s a few shots of some pretty impressive booths we saw on our way out this evening.

First up Jillily Studios.  She’s from Utah which definitely makes it easier to go ALL OUT.  You don’t have to ship everything. So Adorable!  She has a new fabric line out so she got really creative displaying the different prints in her “Soda Shop”.







Next is Patchwork with Busy fingers from Australia.  What a lovely booth and I adore their projects!  Their specialty is English Paper Piecing.  I love their look.  Wish I liked to sit still long enough to hand piece like that.  I did see a little project I liked so much I might just give it a try!  (I’ll try and get a pic).

The fabric companies always do beautiful/fun displays for their customers to enjoy.  Here’s Art Gallery’s booth.

Art Gallery Fabrics 

Here’s a Maywood Studios display that I especially liked!  :-)


maywood snow display

The two quilts hanging at angles on each side of the display are new patterns of mine.  I love the little pieced cabin quilt that’s down low on the left.  Soooo cute! 

This is a new line from Maywood Studio’s called “Fresh Fallen Snow”.  It’s supposed to hit stores June or July.  Here at Sweet Treasures we will be doing up kits in some of our new patterns in this snowy fabric!


The little hexagon “Centerpiece Tablemat” is also a new pattern of mine.

That’s as far as I got today.  Hope you enjoyed a little peek!
