Paperie is the debut fabric assortment by Amy Sinibaldi for Art Gallery Fabrics and it’s delightfully candy! Amy’s love for books ~ the stories and the fantastic words, the faraway locations, and the look of the book itself ~ was her inspiration for this Limited Edition assortment. The artwork within, the covers and the gorgeous finish papers are the essence of Paperie, which was written on material with romantic shades of pink, refined greys and a hint of royal blue.

When you’ve secretly (or not so secretly) had a burning question for Marianne Fons, Alex Anderson, Eleanor Burns or Mark Lipinski…now’s your probability!

For instance, I can be counting on fusible, uncooked edge appliqué as a substitute of hand sewing or EPP. Semicircles? I’ll be fusing those down too. And I am on the hunt for some nice cheater prints (squares and hexagons) which may work within the some of the patchwork areas and instead of the EPP bits. If that stuff pursuits you, let me know and we will share ideas and progress. And please share links to any cheater prints that you already know of that might work within the quilt.
