Some eye candy from Quilt Market

My big takeaway from Spring Quilt Market is this: If you’re a garment sewer, there are a ton of fabrics coming out in double gauzes and knits!  Almost every booth had a dress of some sort, either made from one of these fabrics or from quilting cotton.  These substrates are also being used to delicious effect in quilts (think Alison Glass’s jersey over her prints).  Without further ado, here are some of my favorite things from Market:

Red is a neutral! It wasn't in the video promo, but this red print was the strongest, I thought. Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton + Steel

In a world od machine quilting, these swwwt little quilts in "Sweetwater" fabrics were adorable! And quilted by the designer's mom, which I think is even more adorable. Adorable-r?
