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-

Inspiration is everywhere!

I apologize for the blurriness, it was taken with my cellphone.
Wouldn't this make a fabulous quilt??

It is the carpet at the casino
at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas!!!


  1. Wow, you are right it would make a beautiful quilt!

  2. Great - I did that on my last road trip. Out of focus pictures that go into my quilt idea folder.

  3. We're truly addicted to quilting when we find ideas beyond the books and the patterns and the samples in shops. We find ideas on floors, walls, and architecture. Isn't it fun?
    This is lovely carpet!

  4. This reminds me of a BQ pattern by Maple Island patterns. if you go to Google and type in the search and click on google images you will see other fabric combinations of the BQ quilts. It is a gorgeous carpet- I love the color combo..
    There are really some great tiles, mosaics, and carpets that one sees that would make great quilts. Inspiration is everywhere ...VBG
