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-

Turkish Delight- Jewel!

by Kaffe Fassett
I spent some time hunting
this beautiful fabric on the internet,
and it arrived today.
It is spectacular in person-
the photo doesn't do it justice.
Even better, I think it will be
perfect for my next project!!


  1. Beautiful it is!!!! So what is your next project. Inquiring minds want to know (lol).

  2. Jill,
    I just bought a half a meter of a variation of this one from Sew Sisters in Toronto. They had a birthday sale and I got it for about 3.50 dollars Canadian. I think it is the opposite color combo- They had a few of Kaffe Fassett fabrics that are older. It is always hard to know whether you are going to like a fabric in person when you see a sample on the internet. I love that I can find some of his fabrics locally to see what they look like. I often buy them on line because his fabrics - at least his newest lines are about 17 to 20 dollars Canadian a meter. ( a little bit too pricey for me...)
    The last fabrics I ordered from them were wonderful and the ones before that I was a bit disappointed in my choices when I saw them in real life. They were fine but just not quite what I expected.
    Have fun with your new project...
