Addicted to Fabric…

…is a great shop in Canberra. I had the pleasure of teaching a 2-day class at Addicted to Fabric. The women in my class were wonderful and everyone made excellent progress on their own quilt based on The Ground from our book, Applique Outside the Lines. It was fun to be in the room and share in the creative energy. Did I take pictures? Well, no. I was way too busy teaching. Did I find time to buy fabric? Yes, of course!


Addicted to Fabric has some of the most wonderful Australian and Japanese fabric.

(I'm teaching in Melbourne September 3-5 and I hear there is still room in the workshops. If you are interested, give the folks at Amitie a call.)

Steve got out and about. He went back to Booroomba Rocks and got the actual rocks.

And he went to the Australian National Botanic Gardens – with the camera… This looks like holly with golden flowers.

Don't know what this is, but I like it…

  1. I was wondering if you used Cherrywood fabrics for your Lorna’s vine quilt? I have always loved that quilt and now have the perfect place for it to hang in our home
    Enjoying your posts from Australia and have to admit to being very jealous of you visiting all these wonderful shops and people we have come to know thru blogland


  2. Cherrywoods hand dyes will look lovely made up into this quilt. I used hand dyed fabric from Primrose Gradations. Joan Skalbeck, the woman behind PG, died last year after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. I miss her and her wonderful fabric.
    And all I can say about a trip to Australia is that it is well worth the time and money it takes to get here!
