I’m happy to admit I’m a fabric addict. There are just so many beautiful prints out there, and the possibilities of what to make with them are endless. So often I buy fabric just to add to my stash because you never know when you’re going to need a certain print.
But for the second time, I have come across a line of fabric I just had to have. And it’s for a quilt for me.
Funnily enough, both times the designer has been the same. Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka’s Treasures. I just adore her fabrics!
So here’s the newest addition to the Quiet Play stash.
This is a mix of Summer House and Seaside Cottage – in the grey, teal and lemon colourways. I know. Stop right there. Lemon? I don’t even like yellow. Grey? I’m way more of a white solid kind of girl. Aqua, well that’s a given. I do love aqua. But this bundle combination? It does not exactly scream “I’m a product of Kristy’s crazy fabric addicition!”.
This bundle even surprised me. But I just fell in love with it. And photos don’t do it justice. I have even planned what I’m going to make with it.
I want to do an off centre lonestar – like this one of Janice’s from Better Off Thread. The awesome Janice not only has a tutorial on how to make this, but also on how to scale the size to whatever you want. Seriously awesome.
So here’s my dilemma. What colour background should I pair with my bundle? Dark grey? Light grey? Aqua/Teal? Oh I can’t decide! If it helps, it’s going to be for a quilt for my bed. It’s time to retire the Aviary 2 quilt.
Oh and must share – when I ordered the bundle of awesomeness, I also added in a scrap pack from Hawthorne Threads. Mainly to fill up the 9 yard limit and make the most of postage. Let me just say, the term “scrap” is used very loosely. So impressed! Roughly 1/4 yard cuts and fat quarters. I didn’t know that counted as scraps. That’s what half my orders are made up of hehehe!
This one is a “fresh” scrap pack. And I’m thrilled with it. May be more of these in my future.I like pretty much all those prints and am sure they will work their way into my projects somehow! Because you just never know when you need to add turtles to your project.
So that’s me for this Sunday Stash. Any new additions for you? Oh if you're keen to add a charm pack to your stash, pop by my giveaway for a bit of Simply Color ;)
