QT Quilt Market – Salt Lake City Part 2

There was so much to see at Quilt Market, here is part 2 to share with you!

In order to offer as much variety in design as possible, we partner with several artists/designers to create their own collections for Quilting Treasures.  It’s great to be able to showcase their style in our booth.  One such designer is Desiree Habicht of Desiree’s Designs. Well-known in the industry for her whimsical, light-hearted art, her newest collection, It’s a Pond Party is absolutely adorable!  The fresh color palette and froggy fun hits stores in September!

A great little display showing her newest collection…. but there is more!

Desiree also had her own booth which was perfectly positioned next to ours! How fabulous!

Next up!  We have Janet Wecker Frisch of Joy Studio.  Her inspired artwork is beautifully illustrated with a vintage flair.  Quilting B’s, her latest collection, is a blend of B-word associated objects…  how creative!

In addition to artists, we collaborate with quilt designers in the industry as well! There are so many people involved in coordinating our quilt market, it’s so fun to see it all come together.   Pictured below, is a special Block of the Month Program developed by our friend, Karen Bialik of Fabric Addict.   She is a long time quilter and loves the Antiquities collections.  She decided to develop this program to offer in her shop and through Checker distributors as a pattern booklet – we were thrilled!   Check it out!

Next to Antiquities in our booth were our ArtWorks panels.  These are digitally printed fabric panels allowing for intricate detail of the original artwork.  we worked with Mountainpeek Creations to offer some different quilt patterns.

Here’s a sneak peek of our newer ArtWork panel designs.  Hitting stores in October!


And…. we are excited to introduce our Harmony collection – it’s a wonderful program of colorful blenders to take the guess-work out of mixing and matching colors for any project!  We used a big Color Wheel as a way to show off the fabrics and create a buzz!  Here’s Brian, one of our Marketing Brand Managers… when he is in the room, you are smiling!  He was the perfect game-show host at market!!!

Stay tuned, next week is HARMONY Week here at QT!  More to come!!!
