Discovering Fabrics for Quilting Made an Addict Out of Me
Are you as addicted as I am when it comes to quilting, crafts and all the glorious fabric that is associated with it? I’m not only addicted to building a stash large enough to fill a house but to all the tools of the trade too. So, I am sharing my journey of crafting heirloom quilts (and not so heirloom) & tote bags and toys. Much of this is a learning experience as I delve into projects I’ve never done before. I’ll share with you where I purchased the fabrics and notions as well.
I don't know about you but there are only a few select reasons why I might like winter. Here in Ontario Canada, we often get 6 months or more of dreary grey skies and snow every day. After a few months of darkness and frigid temps, I am so ready for life to begin again. Every day I tell myself to look on the bright side, that spring is around the corner.
I've added the Monthly Secret Sewing Friends section a little late in the game. I felt it unfair to not give recognition to all the wonderful ladies who have sent monthly gifts and even anonymous random gifts of kindness. So here they are!
I would never have purchased this for myself but after completing this little kit, I'm pretty stoked my September 2017 secret sister sent this to me. It only took a night to do and gave me the greatest satisfaction to complete something that is adorable!
Today, I want to introduce you to a quilt I am working on and I call it the Captivated Pineapple. You'll probably remember when I shared some fat quarters I received by monthly subscription called "Captivate" by Camelot. I was so elated with these pieces of fabric that I went and ordered a hefty amount of yardage.
