Thank you to G and the comment that was left this morning.  I have found the quilt artist I wanting to find. 

Noriko Endo

Time to go through my scrap bin and start slicing to make create some wonderful confetti. 

No way can I even compare to her wonderful work, but I may have to attempt a similar art quilt to really capture the wonderful fall colors. 

Visit,, to see her techniques.  Enjoy and let your imagine run wild. 

BE CAREFUL Googling her name and images.  I found some naked women…scary and I was at work.  EEEKKK!!!

Benartex Fabrics


Brooklyn Heights is a great update on their previous collection “City Girl”.  I love the big prints, great stripes and strung circles.  The patterns are bold, but the muted colors are wonderful.  Albee Square is a free pattern available for download.  Might be a great stash buster or quick quilt to have on hand. 

String Necklace Blue 

Chloe has swirls that need to be in my stash. 

Candice Plum 

Cosmo Chic reminds me of another fabric especially this pattern below.  Any suggestions?  LOVE this plaid and the color palette for the entire collection. 

Beaded Plaid Citrus 

Day Dreamer offers strong spirals, floral, and geometric prints. 

 Hourglass Geo White               Hourglass Geo Blue 

Habitat offers neutrals in a muted manner.  Designs include fireworks, plaid, dots, leaves, and florals.

 Big Flower Aqua       Plaid Aqua/White          Dandelion Dark Khaki/Lt.Khaki                               

I see a trend that I like PLAID.  Fall/autumn must be on the brain. 

Abbey Road also has a great stripe that could be used in a number of projects in a variety of colors. 

Lines Lime 

100 Posts…A Reflection

The number is finally here and I feel like it took forever.  This has been a very rewarding process.  In addition to writing on my blog, I have been fascinated with  There is so much inspiration for creativity on there.  Thank you everyone for sharing. 

Where do I go from here?

First and foremost…I am not buying any fabric during the month of September.  I have bought enough recently to start my own store.  Actually I’ve been buying up fabric to work on projects, fill my Etsy store, and have products ready for craft shows.  That’s where this blog has taken me…small business owner.

I love my hobby enough to share with the world and try to do something with it.

Recently, a couple of other bloggers have contacted me about doing a giveaway.  Great, LOVE to!!  When I’m on their site, I’ll make sure to let you know. 

I still want this blog to be about the creative process, how I pick fabric, what I choose to do with it, and the final design.  It holds me accountable for getting things done.  Sharing with the world makes me very nervous, but it is rewarding. 

There are things that I haven’t done, like continued with my charity quilts.  I have so many custom orders and other ideas, I will get to those in the coming months.

This blog has been and will continue to be my creative outlet.  Hopefully the next 100 posts will not take as long as the first 100.

wedding dress part 1

Holy Camoly I actually started to deconstruct my dress.  Very odd since the week before I was wearing it and LOVING it. 

I have taken the inner dress out and separated the bodice from the bottom of the dress. 

Being under all of that fabric was toasty.  No wonder my assistant was trying to snuggle up to me.  She did not make ripping seams any easier. I found her this week sleeping on the dress in my sewing room.  She must be a fan.
