Cottage at Cardiff Farms and Wool Crazy JAM...Whew!

Can you believe this will be the last market post?   Good grief, I've only been home for a month (or more).  LOL

I love visiting with Kathy Cardiff, the designer of The Cottage at Cardiff Farms.    Her cotton and wool patterns just speak to me.   (Can't tell you what they are sayin....Hehe).  She brought Jayne with her to help out.  Jayne is a fairly new blogger, so check it out.  

That's Kathy on the left and Jayne on the right.  


Kathy has a new book out called "The Cottage at Cardiff Farms Quilts" and some of these quilts are in it.  


Again....more cottons n wool!














This next wonderful lady is JoAnn Mullaly of Wool Crazy fame.   She has a really fabulous primitive style.  


She bought a lot of her props when she got to Kansas City and was selling them when market was over.  Sure wish I lived closer or had a truck to get them home.    
















All the above projects are in her new book which is...............  the giveaway!


Just leave a comment and tell me what booths and/or designers inspired you most!    I'll pick the winner on Sunday or Monday.  

So, that's it for another wonderful quilt market.  

See you soon with pictures from the home front.

Hugs, Anne

Hi Anne,
The visit of the Spring quilt market is already finished! It's a pity because these things there, personally, I would want only they never stop : it is such a happiness for eyes! Thanks a lot for all your posts, pictures... etc !
Thanks a lot also to JoAnn for her gift and it's so hard for me to really answer to your question, because so many designers dazzle us so much (the list is so long)!
However, I must be honest and write you that I have again and again a big very favorite "coup de coeur" for Stacy West from Buttermilk Basin.
Have a nice week-end, hugs

Melanie said...

Inspired by all the pictures from the different booths. I was really enjoyed the snapshots of Renee Nanneman's booth. I kept wanting to "double-click" and make the photos bigger on each post.JoAnn's booth had to be decorated beautifully... Love the wool and cotton together....

Patti said...

Thank you so much for taking us to quilt market with you! It is so kind of you to offer this lovely giveaway. My two favorites are Buttermilk Basin and JAMs Wool Crazy. Be still my heart! Stacy just updated her website with the new patterns and I have been drooling nonstop!
Blessings, Patti

Thank you for sharing Quilt Market photos. It was wonderful. I love all of them so this is a difficult choice. I would have to say Cottage at Cardiff Farms calls me to the lovely style. Thanks for the chance to win.

Colleen said...

I really liked the Buttermilk Basin booth. I have really gotten into wool lately and they had some really cute patterns. I really enjoyed your pictures of Quilt Market. Since I can't go it was almost like being there. Thanks

First I want to thank you for taking all of us to quilt market. Lots of us are simply quilters and don't get the opportunity to attend, so Iwant to thank you for the chance to attend. Every day I would think oh I like that shop/pattern/fabric best :) so in all honesty I can't decide which one I like best...so I choose you!

Carrie ~ Cricketwood Prims said...

You have enspired me Anne, Quilt Market this Spring was so full of Cotton n' Wool! Each day was my favorite, JAM is one of my favorites, her embroideries are so beautiful and detailed.
Thank you for taking your time to share. :)

Synthia said...

JoAnn Mullaly has always been a huge inspiration for me. Please enter me in your drawing for her new book. (big smile)

Barbara said...

Thank you so much for sharing all of your pictures from market! I hate to see them come to the end. I just went back and scrolled through all of them again, and choosing my favorite? Impossible! I loved so many booths, but especially loved the designers who combine cotton 'n wool! :-)

Tina said...

I just love everything designed by Geoff's Mom - I feel like a blog "stalker" since I'm always checking in to see what new wonderful patterns they have designed. Too many patterns and not enough time....sigh.

Florida Farm Girl said...

I loved the Aussie designers!!! I've already ordered the new book Elegant Quilts, Country Charm and it should be arriving today or tomorrow. I could get in real trouble at market.

Fiesta said...

Anne, thank you for the chance to win a book I have been covering. I love Jams booth the best.

WoolenSails said...

I would say all of them, each booth and designer has their own styles and love all of them. But I do find myself drawn to your booth and Bari J's style, love your new projects, would be so fun to do.

Debbie

marie said...

Your photos were the best I've seen on all the blogs. All of the wool/primtive booths are my favorites.

JulieF1962 said...

Oh, goodness! I can't pick just one! I absolutely LOVED Buttermilk Basin, and ended up searching out and buying kits for several of her new BOM's. Absolutely wonderfully primitive wooly fun! I also love Sew Unique Creations/Tara Lynn Darr, and Primitive Gatherings!

Mrs T said...

Hi Anne written by an Anne which always makes me smile when I do this. The wool flower appliqué on quilts always makes me smile as I love to garden. The wool gives a cozy feel on cold Midwestern winter evenings as you snuggle under a quilt with memories of your summer flowers. I really like the mixing of wools and cottons with the primitive flare

sharon said...

Anne thanks so much for all the great pictures from market. I want it all. One booth that absolutely stands out is Renee Nannemans. Thanks also for the give away

Loved your tour of Market - the pix are terrific! Almost felt like being there. While I like them all, I guess my two favorites are Buttermilk Basin and JAMs Wool Crazy! I'm also a huge fan of Primitive Gatherings and love the Primitive Quilts magazine! Oh, let me just be "real" - I love them all!!

Thanks so much for all the nice comments on my booth!.....and on my designs. You are the best......Jo Ann

Lori said...

Thanks for the virtual tour! I'm always inspired by JoAnn's designs (one of each please) but I like Sweetwater too. They are trying to do something different and fresh, traditional and modern at the same time. I like that.

Kristy said...

Thank you so much for your wonderful tour of quilt market. I felt like I was there and have hopped to all these gals sights to see what else they are up to. Truly loved Wool Crazy and Primitive Gatherings.
Thanks again.

Friendship Crossing said...

Oh my, was that ever fun seeing all those wonderful stitched items in those booths!
I would have to say that JAM, Buttermilk Basin and Primitive Gatherings are my top 3 favorites!!

Thanks so much!
Tanya

Anna said...

I could look at these photos over and over again...oh yeah...I have! and I never get tired of them, it just makes me want to buy more! lol

Beth said...

All the booths were so inspiring! I love Primitive Gatherings so I think that might be my top pick.

Twyla's Thimble said...

I love Jan's stuff!!! Her designs are certainly one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing!!!! ~Twyla~

Julie said...

I've really enjoyed all your pictures--so much inspiration, I like all of Buttermilk Basin's new patterns and am especially glad I will be able to get sheep and monthly blankets since I missed those the first time around. JAM is always fun!

annie said...

those are fabulous pictures, they make me want them all, but if I had to choose I'd say, MS. Joann herself with Wool Crazy. The quilt with the oak leaves, I love that touch of gold as the branch comes out, it like the sun peeking through a tree and high lighting the leaves & acorns. Just love the contrast of that patch of color. Never enough fall designs to suit me!

suz said...

Thank you for sharing your photos. I love Kathy Cardiff's work - her book is on my "must have" list. I think Primitive Gatherings is my absolute favorite. I forget which blog initially introduced me to them, but I'm forever obliged!

Joyce said...

Love them all, that's what hard, but anything with wool is always a favorite. Primitive Gatherings and JAMs Wool Crazy are wonderful!

Linda said...

My favorite is Buttermilk Basin!
This book looks so neat!
Thank you for sharing the photos+the giveaway!
