The final day of our post-Quilt Market tour, showing off the Benartex collections:
The main Benartex booth showcases a wide variety of new collections by our talented designers.
Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry's Electric Feather collection feature in the free pattern "It's Electrifying!" by Wendy Sheppard. Pieced by Sherry McConnell and quilted by Ebony Love
Paula Nadelstern's Palindrome, showcased in a gallery of twelve art quilts made by Paula's contemporaries.
This cake looks almost good enough to eat!
From Nancy Halvorsen's This N' That collection and new book from Art to Heart, "Table Please."
The fresh, spring-y florals of Ambrosia, showcased in "Ambrosia Star" by TailorMade by Design
The "Sweet Carolina"quilt by Tailormade by Design features the Sweet Tweet collection.
You'll soon find this pattern free on our website. It's called "Flying My Way" and was made by Tailormade by Design using the Birds of a Feather collection.
"Father Frost Trees" by Jackie Robinson using her first Christmas collection, Father Frost
It's fun to show off smaller sewing projects too, like this quilted dog jacket made from Doodle Dog by Maria Kalinowski for Kanvas Studio.
The "back side" of the Kanvas booth: haring new Kanvas ads (yes, that's a take-off on I Dream of Jeannie, promoting Bohemian Rhapsody by Maria Kalinowski for Kanvas Studio). The shelves are stacked with inspiration that we share with shop owners...plenty of small sewing projects (like the dog jacket above) created from our fabrics.
And we can't forget Benny! He attended Market with us and kept showing up amidst piles of fat quarters. We're starting to think he might be addicted to fabric too...
Meditating in the Sakura booth (and eating sushi cupcakes?!?!):
Filling up with pre-holiday cheer:
Ready to celebrate, or at least sample the cake:
Keeping watch over fat quarter bundles of Palm Court by Michele D'Amore for Benartex:
Wearing the cutest little backpack made by Sisters' Common Thread made from Greta Lynn's Down Under collection from Kanvas.
And finally the Alley Cat tent (made by Sisters' Common Thread) where he hunkered down each night to rest after a long day as Benartex's poster dog.
