Quilt Market Portland Favorite Booths
I’m certain this will be one of the two most photographed booths at market. Of course, I wasn’t the only one who thought larger-than-life yarn embroidery and REAL grass sod were amazing. Heather Bailey won a couple booth awards for her display. I can totally see why.
The other most photographed booth, I predict, will be Tula Pink‘s booth. I’ll have pictures of that on Thursday, on my Quilt Market Quilt Love blog post.
Here’s a few of my other favorite booths from market. All for different reasons –
This is Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s new fabric line by Newcastle Fabrics. This display absolutely appeals to the apparel side of me. Love the sketch look!
How great is this? Northcott actually printed (vinyl, I think) to be 8′ tall and at least… probably 20′ wide, based on the booth size. It is a GIANT book. What a great idea! Nice booth.
I loved Stitchin Post Publications booth and its use of rustic outdoor elements to showcase some great modern quilts. My favorite is that zigzag on the back wall. Excellent. I suppose it makes sense, though when you consider this is the brains behind the Annual Sister’s Oregon Quilt Show – an all outdoor quilt display.
I’ll tell ya why I grabbed a picture of the Oliver + S booth: the display and the floor. Yep. Look on the right. See those boxes/white shelves. They really are boxes, suspended by fishing line (maybe??) and brilliantly showcasing the smaller item patterns for Oliver + S. They appear to float. I mean, that is just grey fabric behind them, not a hard fixed wall. The floor is equally fun, indeed.
Lots of great floors at this market.
And last up- Kathy Mack’s booth, for Pink Chalk Studio. It has all her patterns. It is simple and understated. It is clean and allows plenty of spots for the eye to rest. Sometimes, Quilt Market booths are either tooooooo sparse or have so much going on, you don’t know what to look at. When I had a booth for ReannaLily Designs, I was certainly guilty of the latter. This one, I really like. And hello- what a great large branding!
