Not that I have been frugal or anything, but I have tried to slow down my stash additions to more closely align with quilt productions rates (not quite there yet).
Of course the best way to get what I wanted under the Christmas tree was to order it myself, and one of the pre-Christmas sales at Craftsy was just too good to resist. The investment included a box of Aurifil thread in the Alison Glass collection–considering the amount of her fabric in my stash, I figured it was a safe bet and I needed a green for my Starlight, Stardark quilt (which is missing because it’s on the machine). The second addition was the fat quarter bundle of Skipping Stones by Anna Maria Horner, such a nice variety of neutral tones. One day soon I’ll unwrap it, I promise.
Taking these photos reminded my of slightly older acquisitions from Sew Sisters quilt shop, Moda’s With Glowing Hearts fabric and some Tula Pink Slow and Steady. Rather than buy a whole bundle, I decided to pick two prints I thought would go nicely into my stash. Oops, I think I had forgotten that I already had two of the Skipping Stones prints (half-yards). That’s okay, I will find a way to use them. On the left side of the picture is 3 Art Gallery prints from an instagram destash, such luscious colours.
And finally while driving through Cambridge a few weeks ago, I detoured to Lens Mill Store and picked up just a little bit of fabric, 2 yards of the flannel chevron to back a baby quilt and a half metre (I know it says 1/2 yd on the tag, she did cut me a 1/2 m) of the Art Gallery to back my #pinkswap pillow.
Enough for now. Linking up to the glittery Molli Sparkles to see what other treasures people have brought home recently.
