SewDown Philly: Part 2

Our final day of SewDown was jam-packed with quilty goodness!

Our morning workshop was with the amazing Alexia Abegg of Marcelle Medallion fame.  It was so inspiring to see this fabulous quilt in person!!!

Lunch included an absolutely hysterical "lecture" by Project Runway Season 1 winner and fabric designer Jay McCarroll.

The final workshop was with the adorable Lizzy House who shared her secret Meadow quilt pattern.  It's really cool the way this quilt goes together and I love her technique for the inset circle.  I busted out my long horded Saltwater bundle and I may go totally crazy and throw in some of my precious Neptune.  Rumor has it Lizzy will be coming to visit the BostonMQG in November;-)

From there Aimee and I headed to New York City for a little fabric shopping.  As luck would have it we were staying only a few blocks from the Fashion district so we headed over to Mood.  The fabric selection is absolutely overwhelming but I did find some fabulous Tula Pink Saltwater ribbons and this awesome lime green cotton lawn.

We wrapped up our adventures at the fabulous Purl Soho.  They may be small but I wanted every piece of fabric in the shop.  I could only drool over this whole wall of Liberty.  Trying to pick my favorites was impossible but I finally settled on a few;-)

Now I just have to get unpacked and get back to sewing:-)


  1. Oh those Lawn fabrics are fabulous! Can't wait for November if Lizzy joins BMQG meeting! Yay for Lizzy House!

  2. Oh man, next time I go to NYC for work, I definitely need to carve out some time to go to Purl Soho and drool over all of that Liberty. Looks like you got some great stuff there. Can't wait to see what you make with it.

  3. I'm glad you got to Purl AND Mood! Two of my favorite places to go. We'll have to do an NYC fabric trip someday. Who's in??

  4. I am just see those work of quilts. awesome work. Next time I want to go to Purl Soho!
