Melanie Testa, one of Windham’s newest designers, set up an incredibly efficient little print studio in her booth and was printing for all of Market! Her infectious laughter and boundless energy kept us all going and we loved watching Quilt Market attendees strap on aprons and join Melly in her process. Even Lotta Jansdotter stopped by to print for a bit! Check out Melly’s collection Meadowlark here!
Melanie is a teacher, art quilter and author. The designs that she commissioned from friends in the industry were inspriring and unique. Keep your eyes peeled in a variety of quilting magazines in the next few months for more on these projects and head over to Melly’s blog to learn more anytime!
Designer, Sarah Fielke, an Australian wonder came to our booth at Quilt Market after being on the road all over the United States teaching for weeks. Sarah’s brand of applique is stunningly bright and cheery. Her classes can be found on Craftsy for those who want access to this girl-from-Down-Under here in the States.
Sarah’s fabric sewed up beautifully whether is was patchworked, appliqued or stitched into clothing. Read more about Sarah’s stitching journey on her blog.
Lovely sewing by another Aussie, Sylvia Clough.
Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew displayed her new collection Oh Clementine! A traditional modern collection as she calls it, with elements for all quilters out there. Allison highlighted her collection in a group of new patterns that you will be sure to want to feature in your shop! Check them out here.
Also on display was an amazing quilt by Anne Sullivan, using the re-issue of Heather Ross’ Far Far Away line—the first time on quilting cotton. This quilt will be a free pattern on the Windham website in June and available as a kit from Heather’s website. Heather couldn’t be with us at Market this time as she was out promoting her new book, “How to Catch a Frog”, be sure to check it out.
Part 2 of our Quilt Market photo bomb will be coming next week with photos of all the beautiful mini-quilts that were sewn for us by our awesome sewing community. Stay tuned!
