Bake Shop on Main Street by Patty Sloniger!
Bake Shop on Main Street made a splash at Fall Quilt Market! 
Patty's booth was adorable and filled with baking quilts and sweet treats! 

"As the name implies, Bake Shop is full of delectable decorated cakes, donuts and macarons in a bright, modern color palette tempered with deep navies and rich golds and cinnamon.

The accompanying Main Street collection contains all low volume fabrics including charming handdrawn storefronts and hand-written receipts! I'm ridiculously excited about it, too. I've been wanting to do a low volume collection for awhile now and it's finally here!!" ~Patty Sloniger

Patty is pictured above with her booth award :)
Bake Shop on Main Street can be broken into three separate sections- Sugar, Spice and low volume neutrals. They will also work seamlessly together...

 Can't get enough of Bake Shop on Main Street?!? Well, it's your lucky day- there will be a coordinating collection of Aurifil thread to match!

How cute is this mini quilt of nested bowls and a mixing spoon? 
It was pieced by Carla Peicheff and based on a pattern by Lori Holt.

This Home Sweet Home quilt would be a perfect addition to your kitchen or living room!
Pieced by Sally Keller using an Intrepid Thread and Silly Mama Quilts pattern

 Great use of half square triangles! And check out that binding!
Pieced and designed by Patty Sloniger

 Mini quilt MADNESS! One more from Patty's Bake Shop booth! The quilt below features some of the coordinates from the collection.

 Bake Shop sews into stunning accessories too (would make a great gift!)... these Jelly Clip purses were made by Leslie :)

...detail from Patty's Quilt Market booth... They look good enough to eat ;)

I hope you enjoyed this peek into Bake Shop on Main Street! It will start shipping to stores on February 15th. Stay tuned for more photos and giveaways... Wooo hooo!

Michael Miller goes to Quilt Market!!

Hey crafty friends... we are in FULL QUILT MARKET MODE over here! Lots of saturated color, pom poms, tassels, sparkle and stacks of fabric! My desk is a mess but at least it's a pretty mess :) We can't wait to see you at Quilt Market! If you're not going, you can follow along on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter... I might even do some live Facebook! Ahhhhhh!
We're featuring Indian Summer in our booth... you'll have to stay tuned for the final reveal!
Indian Summer is featured in the fat 1/4 bundle above and in the photo below...
Here's the current state of my desk... wish I could keep it like this!
Can we talk about pom poms for a minute?? I am OBSESSED!! If you haven't already, you MUST buy yourself a pom pom maker (found ours at Michael's) So fun!!
 Here we are with our pom pom wall hanging... 
 **Thanks Robin xxooxoxo! 

Of course,it wouldn't be MMF Quilt Market without some sparkle! 
**I can always depend on Karen to add sparkle to props!

Tassels are fun to make as well... and you don't need a tool to make them! Here's a tutorial--> TASSELS!

We have one more secret project that we're revealing at market... We're working with Tamara Kate, Giuseppe Ribaudo (aka Giucy Giuce), Stephanie Kendron (of Modern Sewciety) and Jessee Maloney (aka Art School Dropout) to create something beautiful! Here's a sneak peek!
If you're going to be in Houston, visit us at Schoolhouse and in Booth 2634. We have a lot to share with you!
Have a crafty weekend and see you in Texas (or live online)!
