Spring 2014 Quilt Market + Schoolhouse

The time has come! I am beyond excited to be traveling to Pittsburgh later today for another exciting Quilt Market! Not only will it be great to catch up with friends, but I'll be actively promoting the book. I can't wait to talk to people in person about it and to get some real-time, true-to-life feedback. For so long only the team at Martingale and I have seen everything, so this will kind of be like the book's coming out party.

I'm also excited to be able to visit Pittsburgh, a city that I haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet. I've heard really great things about it, so I'm looking forward to exploring a bit and getting to know the city better. I'm staying at an airbnb rental for the weekend instead of a traditional hotel, which should be … interesting. Hmmm.

I'll also be hosting a schoolhouse session with the Martingale team tomorrow (Thursday, May 15th) to talk more about the book and show off some of its quilts. If you'll be at market, PLEASE come by room #326 from 3:30 - 4:30 PM and show me some love. I promise a big Quilt Dad bear hug in return.

More from market soon! I am sure I'll be posting more regularly over at Instagram (@j_q_adams) than here, so let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to see from market.


  1. I've sent a hug via Katy coz I'm stuck at home. Cant wait to see the finished quilts

  2. Have a great time Mr. Dude.

  3. I'm going to market for the first time this year! Currently headed to the airport. I am so excited. I'll try to find you to introduce myself and say hi!

  4. Have fun! I need to put your book on my birthday list because I really want to make the cover quilt and Katmai!

  5. The Fat Quarter Shop shared the video of your talk on Facebook, I promptly bought your book after I watched it. The patterns are easy to follow and I love the colors you use.
