But here are a few fabrics I have picked up of late!
Purple seems to be a tough colour to get a good range of fabrics in. So whenever I order from overseas and need to reach 9 yards (gotta make the most of that postage!!) I tend to look for fabrics in colours I don’t have a lot of – purple, grey, yellow and brown.
The top 2 fabrics are from Ty Pennington’s Impressions line and the bottom one was just a random fabric I found at Spotlight. These are destined for my Diamond Star quilt. I really need to get a move on that one too! I’m hosting TGIFF at the end of this month and I think that’ll need to be my big finish to share!
I also picked up these fabrics from Sprightly Fabrics on Etsy. Have to say – fabulous customer service. There was a bit of a mix up with my order but Monique was on it straight away and super helpful.
|Lori Holt for Riley Blake, Sew Cherry, Sew Dots in brown (See my above note on adding brown to the stash!)|
Little Yellow Bicycle for Blend Fabrics, Vintage Summer, Songbird in white (LOVE this one!)
The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake, Apple of My Eye, Floral in red
I have another rather fab addition too! It’s not technically TO the stash but it is FOR the stash. A new iron!!
Surely only another quilter would understand the excitement behind a new iron? One that doesn’t put smudges on your blocks, and heats up super fast and super hot, has an extra long cord and an auto off switch?! Yep, definitely a quilting thing. I certainly don’t iron anything else in the house – but fabric – that’s a reason to be excited over a new iron. I scored this one for my birthday along with a new camera! Talk about spoilt!!
So that’s me! What have you added to the stash this week? Link up over at Finding Fifth and share! Word is Fiona’s having a little giveaway if she reaches 10 links in her linky party! Ooh incentive!
