Yesterday I went to Quilt Market with Kate of Kate Quilts and Erica of Creative Dabbling. I’ve never been before and it was interesting to see the new fabric lines.

The threads at the Aurifil stand were luscious and very cutely and cleverly packaged to make you want them ALL! You can see photos of them on Eric’s blog  Creative Dabbling.

The Leutenegger stand was my very favourite. Remember all the trouble I had with quilting minky and how it came through to the front when I used it as a backing for The Gaz Quilt  Well this minky almost had me thinking that it might be worth another go. What do you think?


But that’s not all they had. Take a look at these two stunning quilts and then I’ll show you the fabric line they’re made from.



And look at the back of this one…

P1060272I did ask for, and received permission to take photos for my blog of these quilts but you can see much better photos on the maker and fabric designer, Carrie Bloomston’s, blog here. She also has a pattern available as a PDF download for the Nest quilt that you can purchase there too. What a talented lady! You can also see an online flip book of great projects to sew with this line here.

The fabric line is called Collage by Carrie Bloomston, Such Designs for Windham Fabrics and it consists of 20 fabrics. Here they are:

Just to be clear – I have no affiliation with any of the designers, manufacturers or distributors associated with this line. I just really liked it and I can’t wait till it arrives in the Kate Quilts shop.
