We are back from Quilt Market! We saw many familiar faces, lots of new faces, and plenty of spectacular quilts! We had a great time in St. Louis and have all the highlights from the show to share with you here.

Half of our booth featured new Tonga Batik collections. The other half featured new quilting collections and novelties.

Let’s start with the Tonga Batik side! We featured Daniela Stout‘s latest collections, Tonga Happy Hour and Tonga True Love, plus new Block of the Month quilts by Wing and a Prayer Design, Cheryl Malkowski, and Cozy Quilt DesignsJudy and Judel Niemeyer also presented their new collections in a stunning display of paper-pieced Quiltworx designs. New collections from Judy and Judel include the Heirloom Strip Set, Tonga Antique Garage, and Tonga Cactus Mini Collection. The Heirloom Strip Set contains 48 2½” strips of custom-selected batiks that perfectly complement their stunning quilt designs. We also introduced Tonga Focus, a collection of three 20-piece groups: Tonga Confetti, Tonga Paisley, and Tonga Sunburst. Each one is available in yardage and Treat Strips, and they’ll hit stores this summer!
