Fall Quilt Market 2012: FreeSpirit

FreeSpirit fabrics have a special place in my heart — probably because they were the ones who brought us Amy Butler fabric. Do you remember how exciting that was??? I feel like that’s now “back in the day,” that’s how long it’s been. (Is this where I confess that I took a stack of Amy [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Valori Wells

Stepping into Valori Wells’ booth was like stepping in to a summer picnic, with fabric EVERYWHERE, including the floor! Somehow I resisted the urge to climb into her hammock filled with quilts, but I was definitely tempted. Valori’s nature-inspired designs and friendly demeanor really seem to embody the idea of a free spirit! Like most of the [...]

New Release Tuesday: 6/28/11 Part 1

New Release Tuesday is my periodic roundup of new fabric sightings (mostly quilting cottons). These fresh arrivals have started to arrive in fabric shops and are ready to buy. Retailers, as always, if you carry any of these collections, let us know in the comments. Wow, I’ve put this off so long that the new [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit — Valori Wells

I sat in this bench in Valori Wells’ booth when I was the most tired of all at quilt market — it was 4:30 on Saturday, and I was just exhausted. Luckily, Valori is a pleasure and chatting with her and Kaye completely revived my spirits. Valori’s new collection, Wrenly, will be printed on three [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: The Society Page

It took forever, but that about does it for fabric previews from Spring Quilt Market 2010. Phew! But Quilt Market is all about hanging out with friends, putting names to faces, and making devious plans. Once again I suffered from fabric tunnel vision when it came to taking pictures, but here are some of my [...]

New Release Tuesday

Which new fabric collections are now in the shops and ready to buy? Since Tuesday is the day of the week when new music and DVDs tend to be released in the U.S., I thought I’d follow along (even though fabric doesn’t follow this kind of schedule). Shops, as always, if you carry any of [...]

Interview: Valori Wells on Del Hi

Valori Wells is super busy: a mom of two with another on the way, an artist/photographer, a quilt/sewing/knitting shop co-owner, an author/pattern designer, quilter, and fabric designer, and coordinator of the Quilter’s Affair series, which is a prelude to the big Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show taking place this weekend. I have always enjoyed her blog, [...]
