I’ve said it before, my favourite part is playing with the pretty fabric. I have been trying to be more deliberate about fabric purchases, but here are some recent ones that are purely for the stashing enjoyment. I had a helper for my photo shoots, which I include for the purple fabric, since the individual photo I took was out of focus :).
First up, a fat-eighth bundle of Cotton + Steel basics, from a swap hosted by Erin at Sew at Home Mummy. Erin kindly offered to cut the fabric for international swappers, so I could ship my portion directly to her for a substantial savings on shipping, overall. (We quilters like to pay for fabric, not postage.)
Next, I had my scissors sharpened, and when I went to pick them up, discovered that the local quilt shop had a 30% off sale. So of course I had to pick up one metre cuts of Marblehead – A Star is Born (purple), Le Creme small dots Riley Blake (aqua), and Eiffel Tower Michael Miller (red). I find it difficult to buy reds, but I liked the geometric and floral prints in this one.
Finally, a trip for work to Cincinnati led to a visit to JoAnns, where I was specifically looking for Juliana Horner prints. (Before I went, I signed up for the JoAnns email so I received a couple of coupons to use.) I picked up one yard cuts of Modbox in aqua/coral and Homestead in blue. Cobalt is another colour my stash is lacking, so I added the Jules & Coco floral paisley. I also found some nice low volumes, Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements (love those butterflies), and Susan Winget Recipes and Receipts, because I liked the grey (rather than tan) tone of this one.
The purple is for binding for my Sugar Block Club quilt–I would like to make this for Christmas. I think most of the rest of these will be in use shortly for projects–the QuiltCon charity quilt (I am in a group with other individual members), and bee blocks. Which is as it should be. Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
