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-

Bloggers' Quilt Festival- Marisa's T-shirt Quilt!

Welcome visitors from the
Bloggers' Quilt Festival!!
I will always be grateful to Amy,
because the festival is the reason 
I started blogging in the Fall of 2009

The quilt I have chosen to share
is very special to me.
I made it for my wonderful daughter
who just finished her Freshman year
at Syracuse University.
It is a T shirt quilt made from
old, favorite T-shirts of her childhood.
Also, it has wonderful novelty fabrics,
many of which she helped me pick out!!
It was quilted by Melinda  at
who did an absolutely amazing job!
It was truly a labor of love!
