New Etsy store launch!

Well, I finally did it!

As you know by now (and can probably relate), I LOVE fabric, and have accumulated quite a stash of it. I have sold some of it from time to time, but not consistently. But I have now launched a new Etsy store at!

The newest line of fabric that is listed is the Laurel Burch by Clothworks line. I am SO pleased to offer this; it is absolutely beautiful.

As always, I am offering a free FQ BUNDLE for any purchase over $75! I invite you to check back often, as inventory will be added continually.

Quilt Odyssey 2009 - Hershey, PA

Back in late July / early August, the Quilt Odyssey was held in Hershey, PA, as it has been for the past ten years. I remember attending once before, when it was still a very new and rather small event. This year, I was pleasantly surprised to see how big it had become. The Vendor Hall had dozens and dozens of vendors, and the quilt exhibition hall was enormous. The quilts which had been entered into competition were too incredible to try to summarize in one simple sentence, or even a paragraph. Here are a few pictures.

Here's a beautiful abstract contemporary type quilt.

This one reminded me of chintz, which was so popular in the 80s; it was beautifully executed, with incredible detail.

This three-dimensional chocolate mini quilt was so delightful, and very fitting for a quilt competition in Hershey, PA!

There's just something about a well executed lighthouse quilt...

This Phantom of the Opera quilt was amazing!

Don't you just love this one?! I can feel her computer angst; can't you?

My daughters and I were captivated by this one. We were told that three women had created this quilt, and that all four seasons had been incorporated into the design. In case you're wondering, winter is on the back.

The quilts that get entered into these types of competitions are WAYYYYYY beyond the skills of mere amateur quilting mortals (like me). They are works of art, and quite often were created after literally thousands of hours of labor. Wow.
