If you attended the Warwick Valley Quilt Guild’s show this past weekend, hopefully, you caught Victoria’s presentation, along with some Retail Therapy from Victoria (and lots of other great vendors!) The bi-annual guild show takes place in Warwick, NY. Pati (shown in the right side photo with Victoria’s assistants, Laurie and Kim) was also in attendance, and she sent along a few pix of the exciting event. Goodies at Victoria’s booth included MEADOW STORM and MOSTLY MANOR bundles and of course, inspiring quilts…
Fans of Victoria Findlay Wolfe won’t want to miss the grand opening of her new shop this Friday!! And in honor of the Quilters Take Manhattan mega-event this weekend, she’s planned special grand opening hours of 11am to 7pm this Friday, September 23, and 4pm to 7pm this Saturday, September 24.
If you’re in NYC, stop by to say hello, and to pick up her latest collections for Studio 37 Fabrics, plus her threads, templates and more. Learn more at VFWQuilts!
Congratulations, Victoria – we all wish you a fun and successful launch! Or, in your own words, “YAY!!” ; )
Victoria Findlay Wolfe‘s gorgeous new MEADOW STORM collection is hitting your local quilt shops now! You’ll love how she combines timeless elements with a graphic approach, including a black-white version of the Mostly Manor “Manor Stripe.”
And the timing couldn’t be better, not only becasue we couldn’t wait to bring it to you, but also because she’s also featured in the October issue of Traditional Home maagazine, which is also hitting newsstands now! In it, she shares her unique approach and personal inspirations.
Check out Victoria on cloth, and in print!
Thanks to all who commented on last week’s post — some of you really have it bad! Apparently this fever isn’t about to break any time soon, and that’s a good thing. As promised, we’ve chosen the three lucky winners of our randon drawing, namely:
- Lori Norton of Mansfield, OH
- Melody Lutz of La Puente, CA
- Cindy Cooksey of Irvine, CA
I’ve been seeing hexagons absolutely Everywhere, in every size and fabric type imaginable. Modern hexies, traditional hexies. Grandmother’s Flower Garden hexies. Huge hexies, tiny hexies. Hexie jewelry…placemats…totebags — it goes on! Have you caught Hexie Fever, too?
Pati shared some of hers above, cut from black and cream VINTAGE ONYX Strip-It fabric for easy two-toned hexies. She loves Paper Pieces for her English paper piecing projects. At right, an adorable (but slightly insane) micro-hexie key ring Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek whipped up for Pati at Quilt Market.
Pam Buda chimes in with hexies by the bowlful…
and Victoria Findlay Wolfe goes overboard…; )
Do you have Hexie Fever, too? Subscribe to our blog, then coment below about what you’re making with hexies (and your favorite sizes!) for the chance to win one of TWO Hexie-Friendly charm mini-packs of Victoria’s MOSTLY MANOR! Comments received by Tuesday, June 21 are eligible for the drawing – good luck!
Thanks to our quilting friend (and award-winning fiber artist) Sarah Bond for submitting this pic of her stunning MOSTLY MANOR design. This is easily my personal favorite interpretation of Victoria’s debut collection for Studio 37 Fabrics…
She explains, “It’s a class I’ve been teaching for quite a while. The pattern is mine, though of course it’s New York Beauty, so the inspiration is traditional.”
For class or pattern info, contact Sarah via Instagram @slbphilly.
Meanwhile, several thousand miles above, our own Pati Violick shows off her Lucy Boston-inspired paper piecing, during her flight to Salt Lake City for Quilt Market, in a project she calls “Lucy in the Sky” …get it?? So portable – just pack your fabric, thread, air-friendly snips and templates from Paper Pieces and you’re set!
In case you weren’t among the many attendees lucky enough to take in a FREE Victoria Findlay Wolfe lecture at The City Quilter last week, we’ve got a few key images for you…
Just a reminder to our local quilting friends that Victoria Findlay Wolfe will speak at the The City Quilter tomorrow evening, May 10, 2016 from 6-7pm! No doubt she’ll show and tell some creative tips for her MOSTLY MANOR and MEADOW STORM collections for Studio 37 Fabrics, and lots of other fun stuff, all in her own unique style ; )
