2019 Fall Quilt Market in Houston

Before too much time gets away from me, I thought I’d share a bit from my 2019 Fall Quilt Market in Houston experience. (And do a giveaway!)

Carolyn Friedlander Fall Quilt Market Houston 2019 booth

By taking a booth break this past spring, I found myself feeling refreshed and able to enjoy creating an environment to show off the things I’ve been thinking about and working on. Stepping back and looking at what you’ve done can be good. It makes me excited for the projects I most enjoyed and eager to get going on the next things. It may be a booth for me, but you could absolutely gather up some of your own recent projects, either physically or digitally, and reflect a bit on what you’ve been making. I’ll bet it gives you a little spark for whatever might come next.

Back to the booth, here’s what’s in there.

And some more…

Phew, so much stuff! I feel like I rarely share the booth details and projects all together like this. What do you think? Is it helpful to have a project hub? I’m hoping it’s an easy way to take it all in.

These Eads mini blocks have been something I’ve wanted to do FOREVER, which is to take leftovers from a big Eads project and work them into a mini version. This time, I’m using little scraps from the bigger project and letting 3 lemon yellow and light fabrics (both Jetty and Kona) take the lead. It’s totally a weekend project, and I’m excited to carve out more time to let it grow.

Spring Quilt Market 2017 in St Louis.

Spring Quilt Market 2017 in St Louis was fun, fast and a total whirlwind as usual. Here are some highlights.

First, the booth–featuring my new patterns Eads and Tee, plus my new fabric Blake and many many projects. (Specific posts to come on all of those things!)

Now the other stuff, starting with some Blake gang signs…or something like that.

Arianna, Elise, Ariga, Ellen and I were all sporting some Blake on the first day of the show. Patterns are (from left to right), Colette Moneta, Tilly And The Buttons Zadie Dress, Colette Moneta, Grainline Penny Raglan, Seamwork Jane

I love Jemellia’s Myrtle (pattern by Colette) in Blake!

Jenni Smith’s Sloth quilt (-within-a-quilt) is pretty darn special!

I always like a booth with a sewing feature. Big thanks to Bernina and Janome for lending some machines. Here are Megan and Ellen sewing up some knits. See, it’s fun, not scary!

Julia’s new sewing pattern is pretty great, which is why I just had to whip up a couple of Dumpling Pincushions for the booth–in Blake (and some Friedlander too). (BTW, Julia’s Hayden top in Arroyo is pretty stunning…)

It was really exciting to see this quilt in May Chappell’s booth by Theresa Reid using my Friedlander fabrics. (That hand quilting!)

Last, but not least, I loved spotting this Euclid cameo in the Soak booth, along with the labels that I designed for their Pineapple Grove scent.

Now that I’m home, I’m doing much of the obvious stuff–catching up on things and following up on stuff, but I’ve also been quilting, or rather patchworking like crazy. I love it when I’m feeling inspired to sew, and even though I’ve been promising myself some new garments (kalle kalle kalle) and a bag (I’m looking at you, Traverse), I keep finding myself glued to my sewing machine, sewing up new ideas as well as some new stuff from others. It’s been fun.

But I do need to clean my sewing room…that will happen soon!

Spring Quilt Market 2016

It’s super hard to believe that Spring Quilt Market 2016 was more than a week ago.

Spring Quilt Market 2016 . Carolyn Friedlander

Here’s the booth shot. Let’s just say it was part closet, part living room and full-on fabric and quilt explosion. All good things.

I really wanted to show off my new fabric Euclid, my new patterns Hesperides and Crew, and have some fun with all of it. Because fabric and quilts are fun.

Spring Quilt Market 2016 . Carolyn Friedlander

I had tons of projects, many of which were from the Euclid Lookbook plus some more. I’ve been pretty excited about Euclid and even more excited about using it as an excuse to sew up all kinds of things. In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing more specifics about the projects, but in the meantime here are some (slightly random) visuals from the show.

My quilts Blake and Local

No surprise that I loved ALL of Arianna’s garments, especially these two Euclid dresses…

This was a great sighting! It’s an Austin House quilt in Kim Kight’s new collection for Cotton+Steel, Rotary Club.

I did manage to get out and see some sights..briefly. I was super impressed with the gardens at the temple square.
