Spring Quilt Market 2013: Friday

Our first show day at Spring Market has come and gone. We spent the day surrounded by gorgeous new collections, patterns and all of our favorite designers. Each booth was extremely creative and we are so full of ideas for each fabric collection. Want a peek at what we saw? Here is an inside look! To top it off, we will be giving away a bundle from our Sample Spree loot! And if nightly recaps aren't enough, be sure to follow us on Twitter for live Market coverage, head to our YouTube channel to watch TWO videos from Schoolhouse (with plenty more coming soon!) and check out our Spring Market Flickr set for tons of photos!

We love the adorable details in the Dear Stella booth!  The adorable whales and STELLA pillows add just the right amount of charm to the space!

Want a taste of what’s new at Spring Quilt Market? We are giving away TWO bundles from Sample Spree to two lucky winners, Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille and Honeysweet by Fig Tree Quilts.


We do a lot of walking at Quilt Market. This year we decided to calculate Kimberly's mileage with a pedometer app on her phone. For a chance to win a bundle, comment below guessing how many miles Kimberly walked today at Quilt Market. A winner will be chosen Tuesday, 5/21/2013. Be sure to check back tomorrow for more Quilt Market updates and even more giveaways!  We hope you are ready for day 2 of the show!
