Fabric Stash Additions {19.05.2013}

I am in a fabric buying hiatus this month, while I save my pennies for my trip to New York to attend Lotta Jansdotter’s workshop. Woo-hoo!! Needless to say, I have bought lots of fabric, this year, that I have not shared as of yet. I think I am going to do this by store.


I mentioned last month, that one of my favorite stores is Westwood Acres, an Etsy store that is run by Amanda Woodruff (her blog is A Crazy Fox).  The current bundles (they can never be just one bundle right???) I have my eye on are the “Inside voices IV – low volume bundle“,  the navy blue bundle and lastly the “Stripes that bind bundle” – these are great collections. Oh well, hopefully they will be around next month (or hint, hint, wink, wink to my husband….my birthday is in 3 weeks).

Here are some of my recent purchases from Westwood Acres:


Now, one by one ;-), here we go:

Color Me Retro Fat Quarter Bundle by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery Fabrics


Architextures Fat Quarter Bundle of 21 by Carolyn Friedlander

You can still get 18 of the 21 in the fat quarter bundle here at Westwood Acres.

Full Moon Lagoon Fat Quarter Bundle by Mo Bedell for Andover 

I was so delighted when I saw these prints.  For those that don’t know, my BSc and MSc are in Marine Science, so I love the featured echinoderms (sea urchins) and the sea horses in this line. I thought it was a little strange to mix these salt water creature with the flower prints – but the colors in this bundle are amazing, my favorites being the orange and lime greens.

Field Study by Anna Maria Horner Linens

I ordered separate 1/2 yards for each of the feather and butterfly prints, as they were my favorite pieces of the line. I am thinking of using this line in making some bags/pouches.


Finally the other two big bundle purchases were:

I am linking up this week with Sunday Stash which is being hosted by Sew Happily Ever After.

    Wow! You do have quite a collection. 🙂 Lovely stuff indeed. Cant wait to see what you make with it.

    I picked up a bit of a really graphic pac man fabric on the interwebs today. I absolutely can’t wait for it get here – even though I have no idea what I’m going to do with it! 🙂

      I definitely don’t know what I am going to do with all this either…..some of the fabric I have ideas in mind but unfortunately not this lot. 🙂

    Here I am trying to talk myself out of buying more fabric, and then I read your post. Your gorgeous new fabrics are making it even harder to resist the bundles I have in the cart. Omg. Help! HAHA. What workshop are you attending? I’m super jealous.

    I know that I have already expressed my jealously of your ability to attend the workshop but let me just restate it!
    I love your stash photos! Beautiful colours. I have been trying to be good myself but did just order a couple of pieces online over the weekend and may have been lurking on Spoonflower…….

    I love the full moon lagoon fabrics too. So pretty! Are you running out of storage space yet? Your collection is impressive, especially in person!

      Starting too – having to move my art supplies to the storage cupboard I think….I think that will be the memorial day task 🙂

    This is what I love about Sunday Stash – I see fabric lines that I have not chanced upon before. You have found some very special fabrics at Westwood Acres. And I think it is wonderful that you are attending a Lotta workshop in NY. I would love one day to fly from Australia to do a workshop with Heather Ross – total decadence!
