Welcome!


Hello and welcome to my brand-new blog!
This is the story of my adventures with fabric and quilting.  Please join me in the journey.  I look forward to your comments!

What’s up with the name?  Well, I worked professionally in apparel, textiles, and footwear product development for many years, specializing in Color for the last fifteen.  So people who know me know I have a pretty good eye for color and an understanding of how to create harmonious color palettes.  The Fabriholic part?  What can I say – I’ve had a life-long love with fabric. It’s visual and tactile – there’s just something appealing about every sort of fabric. I’m addicted!

I’m pretty frugal, though.  You won’t see a lot of posts here featuring the latest designer collections.  While I love them, and admire the talented designers, I can’t afford major purchases of whole collections. So you’ll see collated selections, most of which come from my stash, with the occasional new piece added for freshness.

What am I working on now?  Here’s a sneak peek; come back soon to see what these fabrics become….

 
This blog is very much a work in progress. As it grows, I hope to have a gallery of my quilts, free tutorials, and patterns available.   Welcome, thanks for visiting today, and please come back and visit again soon!

So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
