International Quilt Market - Pittsburgh PA

All the photos posted today were taken at Spring Quilt Market. International Quilt Market is where shop owners from all around the world come together to buy for their stores. Below is a view of the convention center from the parking lot where I parked my car. I was there before 9:00am and still couldn't get a spot in the convention center parking lot and had to park a few blocks away. Better than yesterday, I was 5 blocks away! (Thank Heavens it wasn't raining!)


The Quilted Closet, Elaine Waldschmidt's booth. I was disappointed that I missed Elaine, she is a very fun lady who always has me in stitches (no pun intended).


Linda Hohag's, booth (Brandywine Designs).
Linda featured new Christmas Designs.



Lorrie Franz (beancounter Quilts) on the right, with friend Jan on the left.


Lorrie's booth was quite busy every time I went by.


Below is the booth of the Little Quilt Company.


Once again I waited for the customers to clear out to see Gary and Kim Schaffer.


I fell in love with this hand dyed wool coat by Ewe-nique Creations.




There were quite a number of booths featuring garment
patterns for children and infants. A new trend for the quilt market.


A booth of African Fabrics!



Terry Atkinson's Booth with a Typography theme.




At this convention center there is a walkway over the center
of the exhibit area. Here's a birds-eye view of the show.



Someone once told me the show was the size of three
football fields. I am thinking that looks about right . . .
Photo above is only half of the show!


The view across the street from the convention center.




I have vended at the International Quilt Market for 10
markets in a row. It was really fun to simply walk the
show, meet new vendors and see old friends.

Whether you are a vendor or buyer I wish you all a great market!
And to those of you at home, I hope you enjoyed the view.

Let me know . . .

  1. Thank you so much for taking and posting pictures. I bought a new card for my camera with the intention of taking lots of pictures but only managed 4. I can now show Darrell what I was doing for all weekend.
