Once again we were off to Houston last week in October with our new fabric collection,
Costume Makers Ball
presented at Fall Quilt Market by
Riley Blake Designs.
Just in case you didn’t catch this on IG or FB I decided to share a few photos and info.
The collection is for Halloween, twenty-nineteen and delivers to shops in April.
These fabrics are available to the trade (shops) now so please, check with you local shops to make sure they’ll have in the Spring.
It’s a very fun group to work with and I’m thinking you will agree!
As you can see above, we’ve created some great projects for this line and they’ll become available with the fabric release.
You may also notice that we’ve dressed our Makers Guide She Who Sews girls up too and will be offering these Halloween appliqué add on’s as downloadables.
Oh yes, and we won a prize!
One to Riley Blake Designs for Best Multiple Booth award.
And we received the Most Creative Booth award.
And for a little extra touch, our live action model dressed as the main panel was in the booth on Saturday. A photo with her offered visitors a chance at some Paperdoll fat quarter bundles in a daily giveaway throughout the show.
To top it off, we enjoyed special guest, Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilting! Yay
It was all, quite a Treat.

came through beautifully for us once again in her creation of this stunning applique piece using our ‘Press On’ pattern! The photos do not do it justice truly so, please if you’re in Portland for Quilt Market, come by and see her for yourself. She will not disappoint.

Q U I L T M A R K E T!
I could not resist giving it all I’ve got for the upcoming
International Quilt Market
this year since it is in my home state. And it’s the first time since I’ve been designing fabric.
May 19 – 21
So, we are taking full advantage of the no travel by bringing my scoop to nuts display furnishings along with all the usual Joy Studio trimmings. Fun but tiresome.
We will post a full quilt market report after but here’s a tiny preview!
So, have you guessed the theme of our new fabric collection? I hope it is your cup of tea!
btw – Close up face is a large patch from our “Queen of We’en” collection.
Gram’s cream & sugar made it into the display, and on the fabric. I love when that happens!
& an antique shoe cushion!

Where Women Create paid our Joy Studio(s) a visit!
And you can see the feature in the Winter Issue,
on news stands Nov.1, 2015.
In addition it is my pleasure to be doing a signing
with the magazine’s creator and editor in chief,
the International Quilt Market in Houston on Saturday.
Last year at Fall Quilt Market I met the very gracious Jo, at the Sew Scary fabric debut and soon after we began the process. Another dream goal, being realized, hard to believe. The upcoming visit understandably, thrust us into high gear sprucing up and organizing both work spaces as you have seen (here) over the past months. A tall order after only just moving into to the new space last August however, quite rewarding and needed.
Re-creating the inspirational areas was perfect (God’s?) timing!
I hope you will pick up a copy
that you will enjoy reading our story.
Almost, like a fairy tale ending?
Or a new chapter.
