Spring Quilt Market Information

Wonderland Fabrics by Melissa Mortenson of polkadotchair.com for Riley Blake Designs

I just wanted to pop in here and let you know that I will be exhibiting at the Spring International Quilt Market this week in Salt Lake City. Quilt market is a “trade only” show that is held twice a year. Companies involved in the quilting and sewing industries showcase their latest products so that stores from around the world can see what they have to offer.

This year I’ll have a small booth in the Riley Blake Fabrics area at market.  I’ll be showing lots of fun ideas (and 3 new quilts!!) that can be made my Wonderland Line of fabrics.   I’ve been busy sewing for the last 3 months and don’t have anything to share with you quite yet, not because I’m trying to keep it a secret but because I haven’t had the time to photograph anything yet, the last 3 weeks have be absolutely crazy!

Retro Travel Bag Sewing Pattern by Melissa Mortenson; makes a cute weekend bag and can be made with leather straps or sewn purse handles. Would be a cute DIY summer travel bag.


I will also be doing a schoolhouse session at 2:35 on Thursday in room 251B. I’ll be sharing a bit about the inspiration behind my Wonderland line and chatting about my new sewing patterns. If you’re going to be here, please stop by and say “hello”.
