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-

Sophie's Quilt!

My cousin Lisa and her husband Mike
recently had their fourth child,
a girl named Sophie.
I saw this marcus fabrics panel while I was in Lancaster,
and I knew I had to make a quilt for Sophie.
I cut and sewed together strips of the
coordinating fabrics to make the quilt back
and of course, no quilt is complete without a label!
I still have to machine quilt and bind it,
but I am happy with the progress I made today!
I love the combination of chocolate brown and pink!


  1. It looks wonderful! And I love the name Sophie! I think you will be one those favorite cousins!

  2. How adorable, I love your fabrics!! Well done
