Virtual Quilt Market 2021

This year, Quilt Market has gone virtual, and I thought I'd catch you up on some highlights to tide you over on industry events until Market in Houston, TX in October. Affiliate links are present in case you want to snatch something up.

Premiere Schoolhouse was "Celebrating 100 Years: The Textile Industry and Andover Fabrics". Andover has a vast array of upcoming lines by some of my favorite designers. You can check out the lookbook onlineGiucy Giuce has a trio of collections.  Deco, available in July, features 20's-inspired designs pigment printed on Century Solids. Pietra is a versatile blender collection. If you've been slathering every household surface with marble Cont-Tac paper, your heart's desire has arrived. Nonna, a tribute to his grandma and reminiscent of favorite items from her NY home, coordinates with Pietra. Alison Glass is releasing a new Sun Print collection, Luminance, with low volume rainbow colors printed on white, rainbow blenders, and coordinating Century Solids.

C&T Publishing gave a teaser about Heather Black's upcoming book, Design Make Quilt Modern, which you can pick up on the C&T website or Amazon.

Clover has come out with a magnetic pin sharpener that is as adorable as they come. What a fun way to stop storing needles in the arm of the couch! The Sweet 'n Sharp Macaron comes in raspberry and pistachio. Pair with a coordinating tape measure.


Robert Kaufman has glitzed out 27 shades of Kona Cottons with added metallic shimmer in the Kona Sheen collection. 

Michael Miller is adding 27 new Cotton Couture colors.

Barbara Brackman is the coolest quilt historian that ever was. Electric Quilt has produced a stand alone software program, Block Base +, containing the collection of blocks gathered in the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

Sassafras Lane Designs can be counted on to develop a modern BOM. This year, Graphic Jam, was unveiled.

The major trends I see this season are adorable notions, virtual instruction and shows, white pigment ink prints, and solids with a twist.
