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:
The 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.
Look 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 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.
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??? 😉
