Home from Quilt Market : :

I'm home from Quilt Market where I exhibited my Flower Child fabrics, my next collection with Art Gallery Fabrics due to ship in April 2018!

Fall Quilt Market 2017 ~ Flower Child

Flower Child ~ Available April 2018

Fall International Quilt Market is a credentialed trade only event, not open to the general public that takes place in Houston, TX each Fall. It's always a blast and this year's show was no exception! As an Art Gallery Fabrics designer, I have a wall display within their larger booth space. It's so much fun to have this time to spend with my AGF family & fellow designers. I really enjoy the process of creating a special presentation for each new line that I design. Each collection inspires a new plan and Flower Child was all about whimsical floral details!

Flower Child Quilt Market Inspiration

This show I remembered to snap a few before photos of my nearly bare aqua walls to share. I'd be full of it if I didn't admit that I felt some serious nerves when I first looked through the lens at my empty wall space. Even with my fingers crossed that all would come together the way I had been prepping and planning for, more than anything it feels exciting and is just so much fun to put it all together!

Flower Child Sign

I'm a lucky girl to have so much help from sewing friends, who take the time to sew and create such amazing pieces for me to include in my display - from my Flower Child sign to incredible quilts, beautiful garments to stunning bags! Because this collection doesn't come out until April, throughout the Quilt Market show and in today's post, I can only share the overview pics I took for now, but come closer to the official release I plan to do a dedicated post using detailed pics that were taken by myself and each of the makers, I can't wait!

My Flower Child Booth

My good friend and fellow AGF sister, Sharon Holland, helped me during most of Friday's setup to assemble the seven giant crepe paper flowers that I made for my display. These beautiful, colorful flowers absolutely made my booth! I will be making more of these to decorate my new studio soon!

So what do you think of Flower Child? Fun, right?! I hope you love this collection as much as I do!

For today, I just had to share my Quilt Market adventure with you all in photos! Although I do wish I could gush about each print and each sample, that will have to wait a few more months until we're closer to when this new line is available. I have a couple dozen beautiful Love Story rolls that arrived just before I left for Houston waiting for me! I hope you're ready to join me for lots of Love Story sewing!! Love Story should be shipping very soon and I can't wait to share and see what's made with these fabrics!!

I'll be back soon to share my first Love Story projects!! xx Maureen
