I&A at Quilt Market – Recap Part 2!

Ready for more?   We are still recovering from Market…our crates have arrived for unpacking, ugh.  We are trying to sort through all of the great information we discovered and of course, we are always planning different ways to share our newest fabrics with everyone!!!

The last recap, part 1, was an overview of the booth and the approach to our booth’s display.   This time, we’ll share the different collections and samples we had made of them.  So much collaboration and team work is involved in making our Quilt Market a success.  It’s great to be able to blog afterward and share our efforts with those who could not attend.

Let’s go collection by collection OK?   Pixie Dots are scattered throughout our entire booth, of course; they are the quintessential coordinate for all I&A fabrics!

We were thrilled when Jessica of Sew Many Creations agreed to make her “Spinners” quilt with all Pixie Dots.  How fantastic is this quilt?  Click her logo below to see other great designs on her website!

Pixie Dots play well with all sorts of projects.  How about this awesome tote bag from Indygo Junction?  The Tote-All Patchwork Tote, Pixie-fied inside and out! ❤

pixietrays_wmWe could talk about Pixie Dots for days…. instead, let’s move onto some of the collections featured in our booth.

 

But wait, here’s a reminder of the yo-yo greatness ———>

Beyond Pixie Dots, we featured 7 of the most recent collections from Ink & Arrow.   It was great to have little vignettes of the different collections – it made for a lot of impact!


First up, a first for us…. flannel & baby!   Our inaugural baby collection, Little Buggers by Alicia Dujets is shipping this month!  It is offered in flat and flannel cotton, perfect for your favorite little one.   These bugs are not pests, they are darling dragonflies, busy bumblebees and little ladybugs happily buzzing along together! In a perfectly gender neutral color palette, this collection of fabrics will be useful for nursery gifts and decor.

Soft & Crisp – How can that be?  Soft flannel cotton with crisp detailed printing!

The above quilt is one we had whipped up for Market- it was a modified version of our Charleston quilt project.   The same block pattern but in an overall crib size quilt.  It showed off the flannel quite nicely 🙂

This One Thimble pattern “Archie Shirt” is perfect for your little bugger (toddler)  Sew cute!

I haizzy-and-ivy-logove a little niece named Josephine Peach (Josie)… I know… great name!   When I spoke with our friend,  Jessica, at Izzy & Ivy Designs, I had little Josie (my brother calls her Bug) in mind for a fabulous little ensemble to wear!   Izzy & Ivy Designs always delivers!  We couldn’t be happier with the dress and jacket.  In fact, we didn’t want to cover up the dress with the jacket so we showed them separately.

Next, shipping in December (yay, that is soon!) is Sweet Rebellion by Felicia Gallo for I&A!  This collection offers soft and sweet florals contrasted with sugar skulls and bicycle chains!  Just a tad rebellious while retaining it’s feminine flair!

We absolutely adore how Jessie stitched sugar skull details on some of the circles and squares, not to mention the great circles and lines of quilting throughout!

On to the fashion!  This collection was asking to be made into a sassy vintage-type dress and wristlet.   Thanks to Kay Whitt at Serendipity Studio, who provided the pattern for this great dress!

That belt though…. 🙂   Great job Jane!!!

And… in the first photo you’ll see a wristlet.  Here’s another picture hand-modeled by our own Marketing Assistant, Isabelle.. she happens to take almost all of our pictures (thanks Isabelle)   This is the Fold & Go Wristlet from Indygo Junction in sassy Sweet Rebellion.

We hope you explore the patterns we’ve used throughout our booth (click on our friend’s logos and links!) It is so much fun to find patterns to work with the different fabric prints;  one of my favorite parts of the job!

Oh, there is so much more… we’ll let you pour over those collections for now!!!  Stay tuned, next time is part 3 of our recap!!!
