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.

Whale of a Time Green Sea Buddies

My Quilts, Whale of a time|

I'm going to have a whale of a time as I finally set myself to master hand-quilting.  I've done some perusing of the vast library of google images and have come to the belief that if you want real charm in a quilt, it takes the hard word of endlessly loading tiny needles with waxed thread and doing the real work.

Another Convertible Cross Body Tote


I was out shopping one day and happened to stop in at Fabricland. I’m not a fan of their quilting cotton line but they had a $5yrd sale on their decor fabric. I came home with 5 yards of decor fabric that I found suitable for tote bags. Since I have this habit of gifting everything I make, I thought I’d make myself one.
