Scott Hansen Tie One On

One of the reasons going to Quilt Market with either the Magazine or on my own is so important is getting to see the new fabric lines, and new designers. With the eclectic flair and unique color sensibilities Scott Hansen, my predecessor as Community Editor, has designed Tie One On with Banyan Batiks, due out… Continue reading Scott Hansen Tie One On

Fabric Review: Giucy_Guice

I sat down with Giuseppe Ribaudo at Quilt Market for all of five minutes. While I wanted more time to look at other lines, the five minutes was all I needed.

Florabunda! Melanie Testa, RJR a bit of magic

Several years ago Melanie, Elizabeth Rosenberg and I met for lunch. We ended up laughing so hard and so much that we annoyed the family at the next table. Which was hilarious in and of itself, and only got us laughing more. Florabunda!, Melanie's first line with RJR Fabrics #quiltwithlove, is all of what is… Continue reading Florabunda!

We get by with a little help from our friends

A friend moved over the weekend. And I helped. Oh if only my brain could recall the commercial where the kid says, "And I helped"! She's a bit further away, but closer to another friend of ours. Depending on traffic they're about 90 minutes away. This is New York, there's traffic. Eh, whatever. Friday afternoon we… Continue reading We get by with a little help from our friends

During the Blizzard

As the snow fell, the wind howled, and The Lord of the Rings played in the background I took the last few stitches in purple on this version of the Impractical Color Wheel. As those stitches completed, the idea for the next one developed, I made notes in my planner so I'd remember, and went… Continue reading During the Blizzard

As you probably know Alex has a line of product with RNK called Quilters Select. Even before I joined the company I started… Continue reading Quilt Market & Festival
