to get personal

I’m not really a quilter. I do rather enjoy quilting; the beautiful geometric designs, collecting colourful textiles, measuring and cutting fabrics, and the therapeutic act of sewing it all together into a unique work of art. But ultimately, I enjoy travel more; and my need to explore Earth makes quilting difficult.

Before a recent trip to Indonesia, my mother asked me to get her some batik quilting fabric. This was certainly a task that I was up to. Shopping in the textile markets of India, had completely prepared me for Indonesia. I love to explore cities to get off the tourist track and find unique hidden gems: and a textile market is the best gem a fabric collector can find! I enjoy the old-world charm of talking to textile merchants in exotic markets, as most vendors also personally manufacture their goods. Also, getting to know the merchants, helps me build a relationship with local communities.

When I returned home to Queensland, I gave my mother the fabric. She loved it! So did everyone she showed. That is why I have created Fabrics From Earth: because you asked for high quality unique quilting fabrics.

Now, I aim to collect high quality, unique quilting fabrics from exotic places all over Earth and share them with the world!
