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!
