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-

Why I wanted a 15 year old magazine!

Call it the collector in me,
once I had a few,
I had to have EVERY issue of
Quilt Sampler.
I love reading about the featured stores,
and seeing the changes that have come about in quilting.
One thing I noticed was that
 internet shopping for fabrics was not
an option at all for the early years!
Hard to imagine!!!
I hope to put together a master list of the stores
so I can visit as many as possible.
