Fall Quilt Market 2018

Hello!

Once again we were off to Houston last week in October with our new fabric collection,

Costume Makers Ball

presented at Fall Quilt Market by

Riley Blake Designs.

Just in case you didn’t catch this on IG or FB I decided to share a few photos and info.

The collection is for Halloween, twenty-nineteen and delivers to shops in April.

These fabrics are available to the trade (shops) now so please, check with you local shops to make sure they’ll have in the Spring.

It’s a very fun group to work with and I’m thinking you will agree!

As you can see above, we’ve created some great projects for this line and they’ll become available with the fabric release.

You may also notice that we’ve dressed our Makers Guide She Who Sews girls up too and will be offering these Halloween appliqué add on’s as downloadables.

Oh yes, and we won a prize!

Two actually!!

One to Riley Blake Designs for Best Multiple Booth award.

And we received the Most Creative Booth award.

FUN right!?!!

And for a little extra touch, our live action model dressed as the main panel was in the booth on Saturday. A photo with her offered visitors a chance at some Paperdoll fat quarter bundles in a daily giveaway throughout the show.

To top it off, we enjoyed special guest, Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilting! Yay

It was all, quite a Treat.

🙂
