Craftsy had a great sale in August, and once I started my shopping cart accumulated a large amount. It started with the Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt, I have been desiring this pattern for a long time but it was a lot of money by itself–by purchasing the kit I also got 12 yards of fabric!
I have to confess that as I write this, 8 weeks later, it’s still nicely wrapped up and may remain so for a while. There is a sew-along happening on instagram, but if you recall my finish-a-long post, I have too many other projects on the go right now so I am holding firm to not starting another one.
Then I decided to pick up the 1 yard Freespirit mystery box for potential binding and backing choices, working out to about $6/yd (Canadian). I’m pretty happy with these–the print on the far right is a bit cutesy for my normal, but not obnoxious (peacocks and palm trees), while some of the blenders, although lighter in colour, will work nicely with the rest of my stash, and the Denyse Schmidt plaid will be a perfect binding.
I added a king-size batt of Warm and Natural, a charm pack of the Craftsy brand Lily and Loom (and got one free, so now I have two), two skeins of sock yarn, and a spool of thread will always come in handy.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some sewing to do. Linking up to Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
