Market Update!

Everyone at Westminster Fibers survived yet another quilt market and we have plenty to talk about. While driving to the hotel from the airport we found ourselves lost on top of a mountian, overlooking Pittsburgh. Not a bad place to get lost! It was beautiful and we had to jump out of the car to take a few pictures. The town was filled with great architecture that really made some buildings stand out. Even the convention center was known for how 'Green' it was; filled with natural light to show off all of the booths.
Vicki Payne, a new artist under FreeSpirit, had an eye-catching booth that really showed off her new home dec fabric, For Your Home. She had large fabric pieces hanging from her light blue walls, covered cushions, large pillows and decorating ideas in her booth. This booth really showed what you can do with home dec fabric and how you can take advantage of the thicker texture of the fabric.

Here is a beautiful chair with a custom cushion made from the collection For Your Home. This animal print fabric really popped and the contrast fabric for the trim really stood out. Great choice for colors.

Valori Wells was also introducing her new line called Del Hi. The quilts on the left are a pattern that Valori designed for the free download on the FreeSpirit site. She does one quilt in the bright colorway of her fabrics, then a more earth toned quilt to the right. This collection was quite the hit at market and she did some fun stuff in her booth with her new fabric as well. She also had a booth for her fabric store called, The Stitchen Post that was right beside her Del Hi booth. Not only did she show off her great new fabric line, but she was also showing (and wearing) her new shirts that will be coming out that really catch the eye!
