This little piggy went to market....

Yep, it's that time again, market!  So fun, so fun, so fun!  This is where we get to see all the fab fabrics coming out, what the new trends will be and the hottest new notions.  When my head hits the pillow at night I dream about polka dots and plaids, no really I do!  Imagine over a thousand vendors with their booths stuffed to the brim with quilts, bags, clothes and all other fabric yummies, like I said, very fun!  So, the question for you is....

What would you like us to buy at market, what I mean is what would you really love to see at Gracie's?  Winners this week will get something from market(hint...Moda is there with all the precuts for upcoming lines)

Simple Abundance!! I'm lovin' Camille's sneek peaks!

Allie said...

I really like some of the larger prints and modern fabrics. I also really like the Layer Cakes. And Cake.

April said...

I am liking the abstract prints more and more. And dots... lots and lots of polka dots.

Melanee said...

I would like a bright pink and green material... I can't find one anywhere. But all shades of pinks and greens in it.

Believe me... it will be popular next year. I have the knack of wanting what is popular the following year... scary huh.

Christy said...

I love bright, rich colors with bold prints, including dots, stripes, etc. Retro prints and fabrics with small novelty patterns (like some of the Japanese-type prints) are also a lot of fun.

Angie said...

I am excited to see new fabric.... can a girl have too much? I don't think so! I am excited to see Sandi Henserson's new line... I loved her last two.

Kira Rae said...

I love everything, I'm sure whatever you'll bring back I'll buy, you know me!

Liz said...

I always love a big modern floral print. I am in love with the more boyish prints out there (Robots, rocket ships) right now too. Good boy prints are hard to find. I am sure you will find some great fabric as you always do!

The Halls of Fame said...

My new favorites right now are the 1940's reproduction prints... LOVE THEM! and of course ANYTHING bright!

I love all the retro inspired prints and I love bright prints plus anything with red in it.

Dkole said...

I love Heather Ross! Maybe some more funky Japanese prints. Love my Moma by Moda fabric. Also, as you know I am about to birth baby boy. I would love some fun funky boy fabric. Minus characters, animals, ect.

Have fun ladies. I am oh so jealous!

IandS said...

For me it's all about the feel - soft goes a LONG way when choosing a material.

Galo Fab 5 said...

Orange and Aqua. Or just more aqua. I love that color and am having a hard time finding material in that. But I LOVE it.

Sherri said...

Lucky you!!! I would love to buy any pre-cuts you can get from Simple Abundance, Joanna's (Fig Tree)new line, or the new line by Mo-Mo! Especially Simple Abundance!!! Have fun at market!

MooseQuilts said...

You always know what to buy. I just want to be there too and see the new stuff!

Tina said...

I would love to see more boy options. I think you have a great selection for girls but love a little more boy colors

girlsmama said...

I like the pre-cuts and the cute patterns you can used with them!

JJ said...

I know, what ever you come back with I'll love. Have Fun!

Shawn said...

Multicolored polka dots- all sizes! Of course in bright colors :)Have fun!

Carol said...

Oooohh! I am having an eyeball festival with the "Caroler" for Halloween. The "Objects of Desire" is so cute and easy with the Pieces of My Heart pattern #429 "If The Shoe Fits". And I really wish I could afford the "Crazy Eight" fat quarters with the panel piece to start my Christmas in July projects. I hope you have an eyeball festival at the Market!!! I wish I could be a little piggy!

Sew Bee It said...

Stuff for boys! I'm tired of having the only option for boys being either too cutsie or too predictable. Hey, I like trucks too, but we can only make so many truck quilts! Have fun, and be sure to post so we all can live vicariously through you:)

itsconnie said...

I love everything you buy. You have great taste. But I especially love pinks and paisleys. What a fun way to spend the week.

Mother Huddle said...

oh let's go retro shall we? Hope your having a great trip!

Melanie said...

Hmm, what would I like? Anything polka dot! I totally love them lately. A big polka dot would be so fun. I hope you find some. :)

BJHBHBB said...

Love the funky, retro fabrics that just make you dream about making dresses, baby blankets, and cute bell bottoms! I wanna come!!!

reddquilter said...

Brights, brights, brights, will do just fine.
I trust you, you have a great eye for beautiful!

alex said...

I love all your Amy Butler type prints, but of course I am a real Moda fan. I am always on the lookout for fabric that can be used to make quilts for baby boys. There is never enough of that kind of fabric. I really think that there is so much to choose from so I know that it must be hard to make your decisions, but whatever you buy, we buy.

layna said...

I agree with getting more things for boys, but girls are more fun to sew for. So anything will do

brit said...

bright, fun prints in cool patterns & yummy colors! you can't ever have enough color!

Lamse said...

Polka dots, toile, and damask prints are my favorite! Anything in apple green! I also love all of your modern flannel fabrics. Tired of all those baby blue and pinks. Adults like flannel backed quilts, too!

Sboyack said...

Love all the fabric you have but really love all the new retro stuff. I have made some great bags and aprons from it. Love it.
