Hi, My name is Jane, and I

am a fabriholic! Or something like that. In the world of inanimate objects, what I love best of all is fabric, thread, paper, and writing utensil. Just sayin. I can go a long time without buying any fabric, especially when my life seems to thrive on making things out of scraps, but when the bug bites, well you will see. It started when we had a few hours to kill on the way back from the Artful Journey retreat in California. More about that next, but we went to Danville, CA to visit the studio of Traci Bautista first. We had a great time visiting, seeing her work space, got to see her work and got a sneak peek of some of her new digital print collection while doing some serious shopping there, and then set out on foot for a shopping adventure around one of the cutest downtowns. One of those shop 'til you drop days. One of the places Traci pointed out for us to see was a quilt shop. Danger, danger. I got out of there without too much trouble, but I picked up a magazine that has a new line of fabric called Type by Julia Rothman. As soon as I could catch my breath, I was online determined to find it. Well, find it I did, and one thing led to another because I couldn't find all the pieces in the collection I wanted, in stock, at the same place. Seems like this collection is selling like hotcakes pretty much everywhere. The Type collection pieces are in the first photo. After all that, this is the result, well most of it. I am not gonna apologize. This sort of thing keeps me out of other sorts of trouble. For real.


  1. I love those lines of fabric! I'm trying really hard not to buy any of it though :) My basement is looking like an episode of Hoarders.

  2. You sure are an enabler! Hope you will bring some for show and tell! I LOVE the fourth down, three in from the left zentangle looking one best, of course!
