eclectic elements fall quilt market 2015…

1we’re back from our third year at fall quilt market in houston, texas where we debuted the latest wallflower collection for eclectic elements.  this journey into the world of textiles has been amazing and filled with inspiration and incredible talent.  once again the booth was absolutely stunning thanks to the hard work of paula, richele, mario, and the talented designers who created projects for the booth…

2we arrive on the show floor and the shell of our booth is already set up with flooring and walls thanks to “super dave” and his crew from westminster.  the crate is packed with all of the props and furnishings for the booth and we have the task to fit everything inside our 10’x10′ space – challenge accepted…

3we discuss ideas and options and get to work moving in furniture, hanging shelving, staging props, and filling it with amazing projects.  i love the unique and ‘eclectic’ setting we create to showcase these beautiful fabrics and the vintage props certainly help tell the story…

4 5 6it takes us the day to finish the booth, but the results are astounding – here’s a glimpse into the eclectic elements booth at market.  one side is filled with mini clipboards lining the wall that showcase each individual fabric swatch design.  the opposite side features a set of shabby shutters attached to a rustic bookcase.  the shutters have been the perfect way to create mini vignettes with small projects and vintage treasures…

7another display features this vintage sewing machine and all of the cut pieces of fabrics offered from eclectic elements.  the stacked drawers from an old coat & clark spool cabinet are some of my favorite display pieces…

8 9 10 11 12without a doubt though, the finished projects get all of the attention.  these child’s dresses are adorable and the perfect way to show off the collage styling of wallflower fabric.  wall hangings and tote bags are also another versatile way to use fabric in a functional way.  lots of pillows clustered on an upholstered settee were the most popular with so many ways to express creativity…

14thanks again to my team for helping it all come together, the talented designers for creating beautiful things with the fabrics, and to westminster fibers and coats for providing me the opportunity to venture into the wonderful world of fabrics – what an amazing adventure it continues to be…t!m
