newly Stashed

You know that it's going to be a good package when the fabrics inspire you even in slices...

good in slices

On first glance I thought, "I'd love to quilt that!"

from FabricBubb

Yes, I've done some fabric shopping!  This is my order from Fabric Bubb.  My heart was set on those Alison Glass feathers!  From left that's:  Ta Dot Emerald, Domino Dot Water, Feathers in Ocean, Feathers in Teal, Feathers in Lime, Feathers in Dahlia, Leaves in White.

from Sew Love Fabrics

From Sew Love Fabrics, I reordered a whole yard of Social Climber in gold.  I love, love, love, LOVE that fabric.  But I never buy anything in bigger than 1 yard cuts, unless for a particular project.  I think every other fabric I bought I opted for 1/2 yard cuts?  That's my go-to size for stash building.  From bottom:  Social Climber Gold, Momo Dot Blossom, Ticking Stripes Pink, Mind's Eye Toast, Dotted Leaf, Pressed Field Peony.

from Fresh Modern Fabrics

From Fresh Modern Fabrics I finally took home those Comma Periods in black and added a bunch of helpful fabrics to my stash.  From left:  Posy Stripe Lily, Ditsy Hollyhock, Leonard Pastel, Posy Story Foxglove, Architextures Crosshatch Peach, Ta Dot Petal, Comma Periods Black.

so I needed PINK

Did you notice a theme?  PINK.  I needed them since I'm supposed to be cooking up a pink and red quilt for Aria's bed.  Pink is one of those colors (like blue) that has a myriad of different incarnations.  I'm not sure exactly which "pink" I'm going for, but my stash was sorely lacking in this hue overall, so buy I did!

loving these colors!

And this little arrangement nearly echos the colors I requested for the go Anywhere Stripes quilt.  Funny how that happens!

Inkwell, Life Words with Comma Periods

Since these goodies arrived, I started a small paper pieced project for the Penny Sampler class.  Used up all those Comma Periods already.  Oops! This Inkwell Life's Words print is one of my favorites, but is pretty hard to find.  Just noticed a sort of similar print that's just come out.  That's the nice thing about fabric these days - there's always something new and lovely to discover!

  1. Jealous!!!

    I do have that feather fabric already, though, in lime and in grey. They go wonderfully with a lime and grey print I have that I plan to make a make-up roll out of...one day...soon? As soon as I find a spare day, which seems to be difficult lately!

    Great finds, I hope they make you as happy when they're pieced as they do now!

  2. Wow ~ lots of fabric and all wonderful too!
    I did a little fabric buying a few weeks ago and got a bunch of Kokka ~ enough to almost break the bank! Love that stuff.
    Going on a sewing retreat in a couple of weeks and we always go to this particular (and very strange) fabric shop in Vancouver, Washington. She's got just about every line you'd ever want. I'm hoping to add to my stash too!
