Quilt Market was a prism of color. Quilts, where ever you looked, shined with their own unique combination of fabrics. Some quilts and projects stood out to me more than others, and it was those that I photographed and continue to look at with awe on my iPhone. First off, and yes I’m completely biased because the maker is a friend of mine, was Jennifer Rossotti’s “Up With A Twist” quilt she made specifically for Hoffman Fabrics “Me + You” collection. Their Indah Solids & Batiks are simply beautiful. The creative genius behind this new line of “Modern Batiks” is Aaron Hoffman. Yup, he’s fourth generation Hoffman, and his vision of making Batiks approachable by todays “Modern Quilter” has been executed to great success. Currently the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild is working on a Me + You mini quilt/pillow challenge. I’ll share about that next month when we have to turn them in for an upcoming show at a local store. But I digress. Jennifer Rossotti of “Ginger Peach Studio” was inspired to create something amazing with these beautiful fabrics and certainly did just that. There is no pattern for this quilt people. There may never be a pattern. This one of a kind quilt is one of the most popular quilts to be photographed at both QuiltCon West 2016 and Spring Quilt Market last weekend. Enjoy!
Up next were Tula Pink and Amy Butler’s upcoming fabric releases. Tula Pink’s new collection is called “Slow and Steady”. It features beautiful artwork of rabbits, snails, flowers, bears, raccoons and other forest animals in a brilliant array of colors.
Amy Butler’s color and design choices are lush and vibrant in her upcoming collection called “Eternal Sunshine”. These fabrics are so beautiful, I can’t stand it! Amy’s booth was one of my favorites, and of course getting big hugs from her and her partner in crime/husband, David Butler, always makes my day. They are two of the sweetest and most interesting people in the industry.
