Fall Market 2016 .... last post!

By Sunday I was beat! I usually stay until the end (Monday) but experience has taught me that Monday is useless.

Two days of walking the market floor is enough for me. Let's face it, that's all I'm concentrating on! Ok, that and Mexican food ... margaritas! lol

That evening I made a discovery ... The Hilton Sky lounge on the 23rd floor ....

It was truly relaxing! I enjoyed my quiet time .... Starbucks and journalling. Here is another view.

I really relished Fall market this year. I think it was because I attended without pressure to purchase anything. My goal was to see the trends for 2016 and take in as much inspiration as possible.

What's trending? A super hero theme certainly was prevalent! Check out this sweet quilt kit!

Quilters are Superheros by Moda. Kits are available here. So true, I love that quilt!

Moda is so kind to their customers. When you sit with your rep and purchase fabrics at Market, they give you a gift. This year was a set of hand towels that can be turned into:

How cute is that? I just don't know if I want to cut up my cute towels to make the dolls!

What I did buy was purely because I felt it would be a good addition to Fibre Junction. Perhaps this new attitude is due to experience. I don't know, I just know that it felt great to walk the aisles, observe, and take it all in.

I did purchase some batiks. I love Island Batiks .... their colours are saturated ... Gorgeous!

As for holiday fabric, I purchased the following kit Snow Goose by Minick & Simpson. Fabrics and kit arriving in April 2017.

I did make the decision to bring in more happy fabrics, so Rainy Day by Me & My Sister is coming to Fibre!

That's it for Fall Market 2016. Thank you for stopping by my little corner in cyber space! Cheers!

Wish I could have joined you for that view and a drink. It sounds like Market was a great experience.

Lots of fun fabrics and the batiks are beautiful. I have been collecting batiks, guess it is time to use them and try some art pieces. I think I need to spend this year making all the projects I put off and need to finish.
