Spring Quilt Market Booth Tour - Day 3

We're back from Spring Quilt Market with plenty to show! Today is the third day of our booth tour, offering you sneak peeks at our upcoming fabric lines. We're showing the booth displays and new collections from Amy Friend, Cherry Guidry, Amanda Murphy, and Kanvas.

Amy Friend is a new designer for Contempo and we're so excited to have her on board! Her first collection is called Improv

As you can see, Amy has been busy in the time leading up to Market--look at the quilts and pillows in her booth.

Every nursery needs a rocking chair complete with a quilt and pillows.

Who can resist a diaper bag or changing pad made from these cute fabrics?

And of course bibs! 

During the designer showcase, Cherry showed quilt shop owners her fabric collection and all the different ways it can be used.
