Adventures of a Novelty Fabric and Selvage Obsessed Quilter

Glad you stopped by!

I am a busy wife and the mom of 19 year old twins, a boy and a girl who are Sophomores at Syracuse University.

I have been quilting since the spring of 2008. I love novelty fabrics, colorful and unique.

Selvage quilting is addictive! Who knew the "junk" we cut off and threw out would be what I now save! I started a new tradition when I travel--visiting quilt stores! I particularly enjoy going to stores that have been named in the Quilt Sampler Featured Shop Lists-

Fabric for Becky's star

My sister in law Becky asked me to make a challah cover
from one of the stars from my star quilt pattern.
I showed a photo of the quilt on January 20th.
I headed to Mouse Creek Quilts today, and love
the fabric I found to coordinate with the dots.

A challah cover is a special cloth used to
cover the two braided loaves of bread (challah)
set out on the table at the beginning of a Shabbat or holiday meal.
Its appearance lends a decorative touch to the set table.


  1. Oooooo I love it!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait!

  2. I appreciate your explaining your Jewish traditions and look forward to seeing the end product!
