What's trending? Quilt Market 2014

Greetings from Pittsburg and The International Quilt Market!  This is my first trip to Quilt Market and I have to say that I have been in heaven!

I could go on and on but have decided to give you a glimpse of what seems to be trending in the quilting world so get ready to feast your eyes on some beautiful displays!  Tradition is a big part of quilting and there were plenty of  traditional quilts, fabrics and patterns from which to choose.

I love the traditional stuff but I was really blown away with the fresh clean lines of the modern movement.  Beautiful!!!!
This will be a free pattern from Bonnie Christine when the fabric is released this summer.
I love the giant ball fringe!
Check out the new twist on the pennant at the top of this cutey.

Lots of garments on display.  Love this 50's inspired dress with the Peter Pan collar!
Lovely use of color.  Such texture!
Colors for spring include brights....

And lots of pastel corals, turquoise, blues, pinks and greens...soooo pretty!

As you can see, gray is still the most popular neutral.  
The displays were works of art.  It's hard to believe that these are put up in just hours.  I just stood and stared...and drooled....
A wall of giant yoyo's

I loved the little campfire and the tufted sleeping bag!

Cherie by Frances Newcombe from Art Gallery Fabrics...I will be getting me some of
this fabric when it becomes available in July!
Such a gorgeous display!

I loved the Cotton and Steel wall.  So innovative!
Dill Buttons' colorful display.
Loved this sweet vintage sewing machine and collection!
Need trims?
My personal favorite?  Eclectic Elements from Tim Holtz.
I have loved his paper crafting supplies forever and now he has an awesome
fabric line!  Can't wait till it arrives in my local fabric shop!
Other trends that I noticed?  Woodland creatures are still popular...

Along with so many pretty fabrics and patterns for babies and children...
How cute are these bunnies on onesies from Dear Stella?
Studio 37  from Marcus Fabrics
 I know this post has gone on and on but I just need to show you a couple more of my favorites....
I had to make this photo big so you could see the adorable details.

Aren't these colors amazing together?  I loved the
painted antlers below the quilt.
Are you inspired yet? I can't wait to get into the sewing room and get started!  How about you?
