Quilt Market: Introducing Panache

Today I’m going to share a few pictures of one of the great fabric collections I found at quilt market. There was just so much and I know I missed seeing a lot. Drat! But I’m having so much fun reliving the week as I look through all my pictures.

One of the schoolhouse sessions I attended was presented by Rebecca Bryan of Bryan House Quilts. Rebecca loves bright colors, and her first fabric line is a collection of brights mixed with bold black and white prints called Panache. Here are the quilts she showed during schoolhouse:

Panache PatternThe design on this quilt Beach Umbrellas is so striking. It’s bold and colorful and demands attention. I really like the way Becca cut the corners to match the shape of the hexies. And of course, the quilting caught my eye. It’s strong and holds its own with the piecing.

Next up is one of my favorites, a pattern called Feathered Star. The way the colors radiate from the center adds a lot of interest and I like the bold colors with the black/white.

Feathered StarLook at that binding! It is the perfect frame for this quilt design. BTW, something I noticed on a lot of quilts at market were wide, bold bindings. Rebecca Bryan and Latifah Saafir are a couple of the designers that I found used those bigger bindings.

Cakewalk patternCakewalk is a free pattern that will be available on Robert Kaufman’s website later this summer. I think it’s so interesting the way the blocks interact with each other in this design and I like how well the colors work together.

Panache FQ bundle

I was lucky and got my hands on two fat quarter bundles of Panache. Now I just need to decide what to make with them!

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into Rebecca’s booth at quilt market. I have more to share, so stay tuned next week.

Update on the Longarm: Today the leaders will be attached to the roller bars and then I’ll get my first official “how-to-operate-the-machine” lesson. Whoop! Guess what I’m going to be doing this weekend??? 😉

    I love Panache! I saw it on Hawthorne Threads on the upcoming collection lately and cheered inwardly. It’s beautiful, and I’m so jealous that you get your hands on it early 🙂 Enjoy making something beautiful with it, I can’t wait to see what you do!

    You got two Panache bundles?!? Lucky you! I was hoping for a mini charm pack and didn’t even get that! Next time I have to be more bold in asking for those mini charms! Excited for you and your longarm too!

  6. Those are gorgeous quilts! I’m a big, big fan of rich colors.

    Hi Beth: Thanks for sharing these great fabrics and patterns. Bold seems to be the feature with a lot of designers these days, which will make quilting a lot of fun!
