My first market was fall 2010, and I loved seeing and meeting people that I "knew" from online. SO FUN! That...and of course Sample Spree!

Natalia from Piece N Quilt said...

WAHOO! I can't wait to see your quilt tomorrow!
Last fall was my first quilt market and it's pretty much awesome! :)

RC said...

I've never been to quilt market but I can't think of one reason NOT to go. How fun would sample spree be? Or to see all the gorgeous booths in person? =)

Love your quilt!

angela@sfquilts.com said...

I hope that one day I get to go to Quilt Market. What an amazing time it would be seeing all of the beautiful quilts and meeting inspiring designers and the wonderful people whose blogs I follow.

tracy_a said...

I <3 this version! Great job!

I have never been to quilt market - and not sure I have a real need/desire to go (is it just for people in the biz?). Not big on crowds or conferences - but I'm glad others go and share what they learned!

Tiffany said...

I've never been. Sample spree sounds crazy but fun! Would love to just see all the new stuff before it comes out so I can plot my shopping/project list for a few month. Meeting all the designers and bloggers would be awesome too!

LT said...

I would love to go to Quilt Market one day. I think it would be great to see all those fabulous quilts in person and see all the new lines coming out!

Quilting Yai Yai said...

I have never been to a quilt market, but it would be a dream come true. All those quilts, all those those fabrics, all those products!!
*swoons*
Oh my. I think I'm getting the vapors just thinking about it. Where's my fainting chair?
Thanks for the chance to win!
:o) Deborah

Andria said...

I'd like to go to see all the new lines of fabric coming out.

annmarie said...

I've never been to Quilt Market but i would love to go see all the yummy new fabric lines & to stare at all the famouse quilters! It would be like meeting your favorite movie stars!

Becky said...

Oh, I love that FQ bundle, so pretty. I would love to go to Market to "meet" all the people I follow and chat with online. Support some friends starting new businesses. And also, i'd like to start my own shop so I'd hope I was there to shop for my own business!

Sarah@PingsAndNeedles said...

Well I've never been but why I wanna go? To breathe colour and speak likemindedness, and get giddy!

I can't imagine that I would be able to cope with that much sensory overload. I'd have to take smelling salts LOL

I love your escapade quilt ... it's the perfect match of pattern and fabric.

Sarah Craig said...

I've never been to Market - but oh, I want to go!! I even thought about going to work in my LQS to see if they needed a "representative" to go for them! Why do I want to go? Gee, I dunno...... ;-)

Christine said...

I have never been to market but I would love to go to see all the beautiful quilts with all the new fabric lines. Exciting. And of course for the sample spree. This FQ bundle is sew pretty.

bea langeweg said...

What a beautiful blues .

Frogdiva said...

I've never been to the Quilt Market, but why WOULDN'T I want to go? Unfortunately, it's way too far from home for me, but maybe some day I'll get to go :)

Kwilt Noob said...

I don't know where to begin when you ask why I would want to go to Quilt Market! I just think seeing all you blogateria rock stars would be so cool, plus seeing all the gorgeous quilts, and fabric. It would just be the most wonderful thing! Maybe someday *sigh*.

Donna said...

I have never been to Quilt Market, but would love to go because fabric and quilts are like rare gems and pieces of valuable art work. I would greatly enjoy mingling with people that have the same interest and love of fabric and creating these pieces of artwork as I do.

Linda K said...

This little piggy would LOVE to go to Market!! Why, you ask? FABRIC, of course!!!I'd need a major "piggy" bank, too, I'm sure. It just looks like so much fun! Thanks so much for the chance to win- those fabrics are awesome!!!

Anna said...

OMG!!!!! love Kona fabrics in Poseidon colours. i've been wanting to buy a bundle cause the colours are just amazing and any block type pattern quilt makes it look so eye catching. definitely will use it for a quilt. just have to decide on a pattern.

DianeY said...

I've never been but how I would love to! Somehow, while I love the photos, I'd love to see some of those awesome people in person rather than on my computer screen!

Nichole said...

Never been to market, but would love to go to meet many of my favorite bloggers and designers in person. Also would be great to see the new stuff coming out in person. Thanks for the chance to win - your quilt looks great hanging in the Kona booth.

Amy R said...

I'd love to go to market at some point because I'm sure one would come away feeling totally inspired to create. The colors, textures and the people would be wonderful. Also, it would be fabulous to expose yourself to projects/techniques outside of your comfort zone. Thanks Rachel for sharing your creations with us online- kinda like a mini market every time we get a peek inside your world.

Lindsay Conner said...

Would love to go to QM, because it sounds like craft blogging, but so much better! :)

Val said...

Those gorgeous blues make me want to go swimming...your quilt turned out great and I can only imagine how proud you must feel to have your work representing all that gorgeousness! I've never been to quilt market but of course would love to go for all the obvious reasons...

Marlena said...

I would love to go to see all the new fabrics and meet all the bloggers I follow.

Karen said...

I haven't been to Quilt Market, but I would LOVE to go. I have been living vicariously through tweets.
I think what I would be most interested in the new notions. I like tools. And of course SAMPLE SPREE!

Francis Paul said...

as a newbie quilter I haven't been to market, but what a joy it must be to see all those lovely quilts, fabrics and colors! :-)

Karen said...

I have not yet been to Quilt Market. I believe it's in KC in 2012...Yay! So, I will EVENTUALLY make it to one. I would love to meet all the wonderful people I follow & learn from online (including you;-) Also, would love to touch and see all the AMAZING fabrics......EEK! I have a fabric addiction like many of us do! I do LOVE your Escapade quilt in those colors too,.....would love to win the poseidon fq bundle - oh my! All my fave clors in one bundle!

Becca P. said...

I have never been... and am likely to never go (sigh)! I would love to meet the designers of my favorite lines of fabrics, and can you say "Samples". :)

Nicole said...

I've never been to a quilt market, but I would love to go to one. It would be so much fun to be surrounded by all that craftiness. Beautiful fabric and quilts and colors and inspiration everywhere. Sigh, maybe one day.

Danielle said...

never been- who wouldn't want to be at sample spree though???

old_sew_n_sew said...

I would love to go to quilt market and see all those booths in person! I can see it now... me going booth to booth, draging a swooning couch behind me! LOL! Thanks for the chance to win the posiden fq bundle. Fat Quarter Shop rocks!

audreypawdrey said...

I have never been, but I would love to go to the sample spree! I also would enjoy meeting all of the designers, being around so many creative people, and just breathing in all of the inspiration!

Pontos da Flávia said...

well, I am in Europe, so it is not so easy and cheap to get to the Quilt Market! But I would love to meet great designers, like Amy Butler, Patty Young and others personally!

Kate said...

I'd love to go to Quilt Market: OD on eye candy! And of course Sample Spree and Schoolhouse!

sharon said...

I Have never been to Quilt market but would love to go. The inspiration alone would probably kill me off. I always want to do everything and I want to do it now...just sayin:) Love your blog and the fabrics are beautiful!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I've never been, but would love to test my temptation resisting abilities at sample spree and be able to see all the new fabrics that are on the horizon.

Your quilts look lovely there, even without you!

MGM

Ali said...

I have never been but would love to see all the new fabrics and meet many of the fabulous designers that I admire.

Chef Mama Lori said...

I've never been to Quilt Market. Heck, you know I can't even figure out what day to make it to a local quilt show to see you! LOL! I'd LOVE to go to see all the new goodies & get inspired, but I think it would be SO COOL to meet these wonderful folks whose blogs I read. I'm trying to figure out who to weasel into Houston Quilt Market. I'll settle for Houston Quilt Festival otherwise. If I figure out the days of the week. :-)

sweetbaby said...

Would love to go to see all the fabulous booths, whats coming out, new ideas, patterns, etc. And sample spree? Wow. Heaven on earth!! Love to meet some of the wonderful bloggers I enjoy too!! Ruth Wright

Melodee said...

I have never been and this is the first I have heard of it--shocking right!

I am reading your updates and all to gain some information--sounds like something I must put on the have to do list for next year!!!!

Jamie said...

I've never been, but it would be so awesome to be around all the crafty genius!

Sara said...

I wanna go because what quilter wouldn't want to go spend lots of money on fabric and meet new people and the LIST goes on and on!

Merry Made Quilts said...

Never have been but to be surrounded by all that fabric and all of those people who share that crazy addiction would be COMPLETELY wonderful!!

Maggie said...

I have never been, but I would love to meet all the creative folks who make such beatiful things!!!!!!!

Debbie said...

I've never been - and just curious how you can ask such a question is why I'd want to go?

It's the PLACE TO BE!! *back to working the 7:30 to 3:30 gig*

Tanyia said...

I am a newbie quilter so it would be fascinating to go for inspiration... just to see all the beautiful colors and fabrics! I love what I can follow online!

CaroleM said...

I have never bee to quilt market, but would love to get there one day. It's like quilters heaven, is it not?

Diane said...

Never been to quilt market, but would love to go! Why? Amazingly creative people, fabric, inspiration, all in one place! BTW, your poseidon quilt is fabulous. Reminds me of rippling
Caribbean waters.

Summer Killebrew said...

Sadly, I've never been to Quilt Market but I'd LOVE to be there in hopes that some of that gorgeous, creative greatness would rub off. :)

cherie godbey said...

Would love to go to quilt market! Sadly, never been. I would love to see all of the new fabrics before they come out and compile my shopping list! :)

Nadine said...

Nadine (Nadinesaupe@googlemail.com)

Pamela said...

I can only imagine how inspiring and fun it would be! (I am hoping to make it for 2013, though!)

Mary said...

never been to market, probably too out of it to be there, but it would be nice to see what was in in the first wave.

Jerri said...

I want to go to see all the beautiful things people post on their blogs in person!

Rasu said...

Never been to a quilt Market.I would just love to see all the lovely quilts...Such a feast for the quilters :)

Judy said...

To experience all the new fabrics coming out is an adventure of a lifetime. Going with my daughter in law who has a business license would be a dream come true.

Jackie Russell said...

I have been to Quilt market once. Loved seeing everything that would be coming to the quilt shops soon. The waiting was torture. Looking forward to next years quilt market in KC close enough for me to go and my quilt shop owner has already asked me to go. Yah!

Alisa said...

I've never been, but I would love to be surrounded by fabric and people who love creating with it. Your quilts are beautiful.

holly p said...

I would love to go to market for so many reasons! New fabrics, sample spree, blog friends, what's not to love?

Greta said...

I've never been to quilt market but I have dreams about what sample spree must be like. I think the best part about it though would be getting to meet some of these great people in person. I love reading blogs and sharing on flickr but face to face is just so much better.

OhioMomPatriot said...

I want to go to quilt market because I am a fabric addict!

ecuakim said...

I've never been. But honestly, I didn't get swept away by quilting until last year. It's a very new, but permanent obsession for me. I would love to go for many reasons, though: to see all the amazing quilts in person, to meet all the incredible talent, and to have FUN! It just seems like it would be a wonderful, sensory and social experience! Here's to next year!

JaideyBug said...

I am dying to go to quilt market. It would be so inspiring to see amazing quilts. Also, who wouldn't love to splurge on all the awesome fabric.
I am completely jealous of everyone going to salt lake this week :)

Jesse Bennett-Chamberlain said...

I would love to go to quilt market - just to be inspired, renewed, refreshed all that jazz! Maybe one day :)

Kari Nitzel said...

I never have been to a quilt market, infact I never heard of one until I started to follow yours and others' blog. I tried to go to this one, but not too sure how to do it so I will miss it. Any suggestions will be nice.
I would love to go and see all the beautiful quilts, get ideas and meet all the wonderful people behind the blog screens.

Sharon Pernes said...

I haven't been to quilt market yet, but I do plan on going to the Fall one. I really want to experience it all.

Maria said...

I have never been to Quilt Market and have read about them so many times that I'd love to go and meet all the fabulous, creative people that I read about and whose patterns I buy.

Jessica said...

I'd LOVE to go to Quilt Market. To see all of the lovely quilts and fabrics in person as well as meet the amazingly talented people whose blogs I follow. A girl can dream, right?!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Have never been to quilt market but would love to go to see all the new fabric lines and all the new tools too. Can never have too many quilty tools.

Sharon said...

First things first, that quilt is gorgeous! :)

This little piggy also stayed home. I'm loving all the twitter pics & updates, and I'm really looking forward to the boss coming home & telling me all about it. I'd love to go just for all the inspiration and beautiful colors. I'll bet it's amazing in person!

Thanks for keeping us updated with your tweets. :)

madebymum said...

Oh I would love to go, never have been with it being across the Atlantic. Just walking round all the booths getting inspiration. Just fab

Judy V said...

I have never been to quilt market, but would love to go to get the newest quilt patterns, gadgets and fabric. I am sure there are lots of things that I can learn from the many booths.

Debbie said...

I've never been to quilt market because:

A. i'm a new quilter
B. i'm from Holland, so it's too far for me to go sadly enough

I would have been going if i were closer to Salt Lake City. I would love to see al the people i admire and see all the quilts for inspiration.

Greetings from a new quilter from Holland!!

The Army of Four said...

Oh my. I've never (that Poseidon bundle looks amazing) been to market. I'm not (that Poseidon bundle looks amazing) sure I could even survive, as I might (that Poseidon bundle looks amazing) pass out from sensory overload. Can you overload on happiness? (That Poseidon bundle looks amazing!)
KZK
PS: Have I mentioned that Poseidon bundle looks amazing?

Kate said...

Lovely Escapade! I've never been to Quilt Market - we're eight hours from Houston so I want to go before we move... But it's Halloween and I'm usually sewing my kiddo's costume on the day of. ;) Why go? Um, because it's Quilt Market?

Elizabeth said...

I've never been to Quilt Market, but the more I see and read about it, the more I'd love to go some day.

Kelly said...

I've never been to Quilt Market. I sure enjoy looking at all the pictures that everyone posts. See the new fabric and getting lots of ideas on new projects. Very exciting!

Lindsay Ladwig said...

i wanna go to quilt market SO BAD! i just wanna see what everyone has been working on, and get inspiration for my own creations. one day... :)

Melissa L said...

I have never been but just dream about going to see everything!

Cathy said...

I've never been to quilt market but I would love to go and see what is new. I'd love to meet some designers and check out all the quilts. Hugs

Shelley said...

Oh I would LOVE to go to quilt market. I just wanna walk and stare at all the different quilts ALL day! Someday...
Thanks so much!

Katherine said...

I've never been to Quilt Market but, hope to one day.

I would love to wander through, soaking up the inspiration from the booths, see the latest fabric releases and meet designers.

SarahB said...

Those colors are so beautiful!

I haven't ever been to Quilt Market, but I hope to one day! I'd love to see it all and meet all the great people I've been reading about and chatting with all these years!

Sonia B said...

I've never been, but since it's in my neighborhood (relatively), I'm going to a "meet-up" to meet some new quilty friends. So excited!

Bree said...

I've never been, but would love to, and why not?! Lots of beautiful inspiration!

Jodi said...

Never been - wanna go to meet some amazing people that heretofore I've only read their blogs or bought their wonderful fabric!

Laurel said...

i'm still new to quilting, so i haven't ever gone. but someday, when there's no small children involved and i can convince the Mister to take a trip with me to go look at FABRIC, i would love to!

trudys_person said...

I've never been to Market, but I would love to go - what quilter wouldn't???!! Maybe agoraphobics ... but I love crowds and all the excitement. I would love to see all the new fabrics and the quilting celebrities ... Amy Butler, Kaffe, Heather Bailey, QuiltDad, Happy Zombie, all the other designers and bloggers ... Someday I hope!! Thank you for the giveaway!

Kpet said...

I can't stop thinking about quilt market and I've never even been there! It would have been awesome - to see Salt Lake - all the wonderful quilty things. New fabrics, colors, patterns, products - it would be great fun!

RaeLyn said...

Never been to quilt market (I feel so new at this designer fabric thing still!), but I think the neatest part would be to ooh and aah over all the quilts, take a million pictures and have more ideas than I could ever execute. I also think it would be neat to see the fabric celebrities...or at least their booths.

Stacey Napier said...

I'm a new quilter but I've quickly become obsessed - I would love to go to a quilt market but it might bankrupt me!!

Mommarock said...

I've never been to quilt market.. I would LOVE to go! I think there is so much about quilting that I have yet to see, yet to learn.. New quilty things that are out there waiting for me.. to open my eyes and get me moving on a new path.. I am already so "into" this, can you imagine the doors that quilt market would open for me?? I dream about what I'm missing.. what is behind that door?

fallingforpieces said...

Never been, but I think it would be so great to hang out with other quilters and see all the upcoming fabric. Plus, sample spree sounds like heaven on earth ;)

Lisa Marie said...

I've never been to quilt market but am definitely interested in going. I'm friendly with my LQS owner and have offered to go and help her -- but she always has a long list of interested parties for that! It must be amazing to see so many things that are new and cool in the quilt world all together in one place!

Cassondra Bailey-Harig said...

I would absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to go to quilt market one day. I think the most exciting part is to actually get to meet some of the talented fabric designers out there. Also getting to see all the new fabric before it hits stores!! And sample spree, and workshops, and and and!!

Andrea said...

i've never been, but i would love to go to see all the new fabric coming out!

Nancy D. said...

I've never been and since I'm just getting into this little creative outlet, I've never seen anything about it before but after seeing some of the pictures from this year - WOW! I would love to go and just take it all in. I get excited whenever I go to a local quilt shop. I think it might overstimulate my emotions to see all the beauty. Maybe someday...

County of O'Corc said...

I would love to go...never been! Maybe next year, if I can get the hubbie to watch the wee one while I travel!
kcorcoran78@gmail.com

Jennifer said...

I love the colors! I think it would look great with rich browns!

Elizabeth D. said...

Holy moly, I'd love to go to Quilt Market someday, if nothing but for the sheer gorgeousness of it all! The inspiration, the gorgeous fabrics to pet, the wonderful quilty people to meet - it all sounds fantastic :)

Janet said...

Never been .... why would I want to go? Wow, the inspiration, the free stuff, the quilt makers, pattern designers, fabric designers ... all of it!

Tiffaney said...

I would love to go to quilt market for sample spree.

No wait I would like to go to market to meet all the wonderful designers.

No wait I would like to go to market to see all the lovely quilts.

No wait I would love to go to quilt market for a vacation.

I guess I want to go to quilt market for all that above and more!

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Never have been - but would love to go just to see all the eye candy goodness!! Your baby looks great hanging up there Rach! Jenn

Joanna said...

Honestly, I just want to go and touch fabric. Perhaps stammer an embarrassing "ohmigoodness I love you" to a designer or two...but mainly just touch fabric. :)

Heidi said...

I have never been to Quilt Market but I would love to go someday to see everything and meet the people behind designs. P.S. I love your quilts Rachel!

Gnomemade said...

I'd love to go to Quilt Market - now just to devise a plan on how! Thanks for the opportunity for such a generous giveaway - I love the colors and your pattern!

jaelle said...

Unfortunately I've never been to a quilt market and I guess this won't change soon because I come from Germany and it's a little bit far away :)))
But I really love your escapade quilt and it's on my To-Do-List since you posted your first pictures :) The colors are amazing! Love the blues :)

Chelley said...

I've been to quilt festival, but never to market. I'd love the chance to go one of these days to check out all of the latest and greatest stuff!

Meg said...

I've never been to Market--I can only imagine it would be like Mecca. The Holy Land for quilters and fabric fiends. I want to go, see all of the awesome designers and sewers I admire, and I know I'd probably cower in a corner, totally overwhelmed!

Julie said...

I can't believe you're not there! I would love to go, I want to see all of the new lines in person and get to run my hands over them. I don't have a LQS that carries the types of fabrics I'm in to. And lets not forget sample spree!

Brittney Selby said...

Why exactly would a quilter not want to go to market? It's like the Olympics of Quilting. I for one would loooove to go to market.

Quilter in the Gap said...

I have never been to quilt market but I think it would be fun to have all those talented people in one place AND to be around that many people who enjoy the same hobby as me. What fun!!!

Emily. said...

Never been to quilt market but I think it'd be pretty awesome to see all that pretty fabric all in one place. IN PERSON!

ecisley(at)comcast(dot)net

Brynn said...

I've never been to Quilt Market, but I'm loving seeing all the pictures coming out already! Love modern technology :) And the lovely colors in the giveaway :) Thanks!

Lyanna said...

Oh, I haven't been to a quilt market yet and I would absolutely LOVE to go. A small part of me is afraid to though, I may put us in some serious debt... hahaha.

No, really though, I feel like I feed off of the visuals, the eye candy, and the whole vibe of people loving what they do. It's almost therapeutic.

Kimberly said...

Never been...

But a girl can dream can't she?

mandie said...

So, I'm Mandie. I'm from Lorain. I never get to go to market, either. I don't know how to quilt! My best friend knows, but she never teaches me!!!

P.S. I might not know how to quilt, but I can recognize good color palettes...and this fat quarter has it! And I teach Mythology, so I could tell you all about Poseidon! :)

Am I in???

<3
Mon

Pepe said...

I've never been to quilt market but I would like to. What a wonderful palette for Poseidon!

Jenny said...

never been to market...not sure my wallet could handle it, but it would be awesome to be there to talk to the designers!

Jennifer said...

I've never been but sooooo want to go! Maybe one day....

zarina said...

Have never been to market (and it will cost me a bomb coming from Malaysia). I would surely take in the bundles on offer - I mean, what girl will pass up an opportunity like that.

Willa said...

Never ever been. Wanna go!

I think the main reason would be all the eye candy. But quite sure I would shop until I could carry no more.

This fabric bundle is yummy.

MollyP said...

I am the only quilter in my family or my group of friends. Market is Mecca for quilters. Meeting all the people you get to know and admire on their blogs and in interviews, being surrounded by gorgeous fabrics and creative minds... I would have to get some Zanax before I walked in.

Judi said...

I would have loved to go to quilt market, but I thought you had to be a distributor or shop owner to go. Boo. Not sure where I got that impression. Maybe next year :)

The One and Only said...

I've never been to quilt market but I would so love to go! It looks so exciting and fun and to see the booths all decorated differently, OH GEEZ!! I would probably run around like a crazy person, if I was ever able to go!!!

Elizabeth G. said...

I wanna go to Quilt Market so I can double it up as a vacation! Yeah!!

Barb said...

I attend Spring and Fall Market virtually like so many others. Thank goodness quilters like to share photos :D It would be so awesome to attend in person! I could meet my fav designers in person and see all the cool creations from the latest fabrics.

Kristi said...

I'd just love to go take in all the eye candy.

Diane said...

I want to go to quilt market - I hear everyone that goes has a great time. Plus I want to meet some of people I follow on Facebook and through their blog. Please pick me!

Kevin said...

Fabric - what other reason could there be??!!

Michele said...

I think any quilter wants to experience Quilt Market, although those crowds at the Moda Sample Spree looked scary! LOL!

Hattie said...

I would love to go to market to see all the new fabrics and designs and look at the gorgeous quilts, like yours, Rachel!

Sallie said...

I've been to the Houston International Quilt Festival and my favorite memory is the 160' (?) International Quilt from different countries. It was so fun to see all the different countries! Thanks for the giveaway!

Manda said...

Never been but I would love to be able to! It would be fantastic to see all the new lines!

Keep Stitchin' said...

Are you kidding?? Who wouldn't want to go to Quilt Market and experience everything a quilter could possibly want, under one roof (except for maybe Hugh Jackman or George Clooney!)?? I have never been to Quilt Market, but I would love to go; it would be like one giant quilt shop, with lots of well known quilters/designers and teachers and so much happy energy!!

Alf and Lily Creations said...

Ive never been but one day I will cross the pond and visit. I would like to see how much fabric I could stuff in a suitcase :)

Nancyz said...

I've been to quilt market twice (both times in Pittsburgh). I was amazed both times! Sooooo much to see and very overwhelming. My absolute favorite thing is "Sample Spree"!

Barbara McD said...

First of all, I want to find out how you get to go - do you have be born under the right sign or someting?

I want to go just to drink in (no pun intended) the color and texture - talk about sensory overload!

Deanna said...

I would love to go to quilt market, just to "soak it all in." Alas, like you, this little piggie stayed home. :(

smarti said...

I have never been to Quilt Market. If I ever had the chance, I think I'd stand with my mouth gapping open for most of the time. I'd love to see all the new fabric, meet designers, look at all the cool things made with the lovely fabrics. I'd probably make a fool of myself drooling over stuff but it would be fun!

Renee said...

I've never been to Quilt Market. Honestly I barely know what it is aside from the snippets I've read on a few people's blogs. But I'm curious and would go just for the inspiration!

hollymade said...

Never been, but I'd love to go to see what everyone's created. I imagine it would just be so inspiring!

nappygal said...

I want to go to market because it feels like inspiration overload and who wouldn't love some of that?!

Chelsea said...

I've never been to quilt market but it's one of my goals for next year. For now I'm glued to facebook and twitter, watching for every little glimpse of the excitement. I think just the fact of being surrounded by so many enthusiastic, creative, possibly exhausted people would be amazing! And I need to meet Tula Pink. Not because I'm a stalker or anything. I just think she's awesome. Ok maybe verging on stalker because I would so peek through her window to watch her work I'd I knew where she lived!

I have never been to market as I am new to the quilting world, but I would just love to go and drool over all the beautiful quilts.

Quilt Market sounds like lots of fun. Meeting up with old friends and finding new friends. All those beautiful quilts and new fabric lines...

taliana said...

I've never been to quilt market before...I just started quilting last year...but I would love to go some day...so many new things to see...so many new ideas...how could you not want to go see that?? :)

James-Linda said...

I have never been to 'market' but I think I would just walk around with my mouth open.

drmithome said...

Never been to the quilt market, but would love to go to meet all the bloggers I follow and to see all the new fabrics.

FML Crochet said...

I've never been but would love the inspiration!

MeganAnne said...

i would love to go for a massive dose of inspiration and to ooggle all the pretty fabrics

Patty D from NC said...

I've never been but it looks like so much fun. Perhaps some day if I turn my hobby into a business...

Anna F said...

Have never been but would love to go someday to see what all the fuss is about and to get an overload of inspiration : )

cpurl17 said...

I have never been but would LOVE to go....I think I'd end up in a fabric coma!

Tammy said...

I have never been but...I would love to be one of the few that gets to see the new stuff first!!!

Amber H. said...

I've never been to quilt market, and I TOTALLY want to go! I'm actually working on figuring out how I can get in -besides getting packed into a box or suitcase- and I plan on going someday!

On the bright side, I've already met Lizzie House, and I am going to go meet Anna Maria Horner tonight at a LQS, so that's at least two of the many things that I would do at Quilt Market that I have done/will do! I totally missed my chance to meet Amy Butler though but that's ok.

Melissa said...

(love that FQ pack!)
I've never been to Quilt Market, and I think if I got the chance to go, I would most look forward to actually seeing all the lovely fabrics in person. I'm a tactile person, and don't have a bustling modern fabric store near me, so that leaves me viewing new fabrics on the web. :-/
Chances are good, though, that I'll never go, so I just live vicariously through others. :)

krisgray said...

I've been to one Mkt and the coolest thing was Sample Spree (and helping my LQS owner/friend carry her purchases). The other things was walking into that huge convention center and realizing that it was devoted entirely to our fave pasttime - quilting.

Ladybug said...

I would love to go to quilt market because I would like to meet the people who inspire me to quilt. The bloggers, pattern and fabric designers. These people creat the products I use and are the inspiration for most of my projects.

jotatters said...

I have never been but have heard so much about it in the blog-o-sphere! I imagine it to be so much bigger and better and with so much greater inspiration and shopping opportunity than anything we have here in the Uk!

rachandcarl said...

i have never been but it would be awesome!!! if i ever get to travel to the states i want it to be to quilt market!!

Abbybeth said...

I've never been to Market, but I'd so love to see all the quilts and new fabrics up close and personal and see all the quilting celebrities!

Anne said...

Haven't been -- yet, but I want to go. My hubby told me to arrange the travel plans, and he'd get me there! What's not to like? "Quilt" and "Market." I love quilts (pre- and post script!), and I love shopping for fabric, patterns, and cruising for ideas. Would love meeting the designers and seeing new products and fabric lines, too!

Nathalie said...

my first market in Houston was a bit overwhelming. I didn't know where to start or what to do. I had to go back to the motel that night and come back the next day with a plan. Haven't been to a spring market, but I will go one day soon.

robin said...

This little piggy has never been to market, and likely never will be, but it would be awesome to browse the booths, meeting designers, and looking at the fabric lines. Maybe spend some $$$, too! ;) Thanks for the giveaway chance.

Lydia said...

I've never been, so I can only imagine how many beautiful quilts there would be. There would be so much inspiration I'd be bursting at the seams.

Cammie said...

Eye Candy. That is why i want to go.
I've never been and don't anticipate getting to go, even if I was just in SLC 10 minutes ago.

Sandy said...

What a ubber yummy bundle of fabrics....wow.
I would love to go to Market...just to see all of the ideas, fabrics, patterns, ideas and ideas....what a grouping of minds with the same love coming together!

Lukayna said...

I'd love to be able to go to a quilt market one day - just the chance to wander around and see oodles of inspiration from all the quilts being shown, all the fabrics on display and all the quilters eager to talk about their craft and techniques, ideas, etc. My fear would be inspiration overload and a very empty checking account when all was said and done.

Candace said...

I would love, love, love to go to market some day just so I could mark that experience off my bucket list! I've never been to anything larger than the Sew Expo we have here in the springtime but that's a ton of fun so I bet market would be even better :D

Quilt Monkey said...

Never been - would absolutely love to go! I just think it would be fun to see all the new fabrics and products and patterns. And also the designers that I've gotten to know through blogland!!

Tsigeyusv said...

I've never benn. I'd love to go in order to get more ideas and to drool over wonderful fabrics, quilts, and gadgets

Shannon said...

I would love to go so that I could see all this fun stuff that I see on blogs in person. I have been looking at these great quilt for a year now and to see them in real life would be so cool!!

two hippos said...

I've never been to quilt market (didn't even know about it until a few years ago), but I'd love to check out all the new fabric and see all the cool things people have done with fabric. some of the booths just look incredible.

ikceb said...

Never been to quilt market. I would love to go because I love, love, love fabric.

pinsandneedles said...

tusen said...

I've never been to quilt market but of course I want to go. As I buy all my fabrics online it would be a great opportunity to see lots of beautiful fabrics "in person", to see all those beautiful quilts and to get inspired :)

Cathy said...

I've never been to Quilt Market, but would love to go, just to wallow in all the quilty goodness and see the famous quilty people.

Paula said...

I've never been to any quilt show or quilt market, unless you count county fairs. I should go! It's nearby! I'm moving in the direction of all things quilting now that my baby is on the cusp of graduating from high school. Quilting will joyfully fill in the holes she leaves as she takes on the world!

linda said...

i have never been to a quilt any thing so would just love it ,love the fabrics .

Tara said...

Quilt market sounds so cool...I'm jealous of the people who get to go and see all the beautiful designs!

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

I'd love to go! I love all quilting things. And all sewing things. And everything in between! I'd LOVE to meet the designers, especially Kaffe Fassett! mamaogg(at)gmail(dot)com

Rebecca said...

I have not been to quilt market. It would be lovely to go and see all the pretty quilts and yummy fabrics and just enjoy looking around without being hurried along by my four young darlings. However, it is probably best for my budget that I am unable to go to market. I think I would be way to tempted to buy beautiful fabrics for projects I don't have the time or money to complete.

Tamie said...

I have never been to market, never had the chance and would be overwhelmed, I'm sure. But... I'd love to go. I just want to feel all those fabrics, see all there is to see, and take home some memories.

Megan said...

I wanna go so I can have a fabric-gasm!

Jen said...

I want to go to spot some quilt bloggers! And look at the beautiful booths. And learn something in the Schoolhouse. And...and...and :)

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

I so want to go to market - pity its on the other side of the atlantic ocean! I would love to see all those new fabrics up close!

Erin Marie said...

I would love to go just to see all the pretty fabric and quilts. I'd just walk around in a daze, unsure what to do with all the amazing-ness around me.

deserae said...

I would love to go and get some new fabric that isn't out yet! :)

Alicia said...

I would love to go just to be around people who like to sew! No quilting buddies here.
