Sunday Stash #20: Birthday celebrations

Toda, June 8th, is my birthday!!! I am going to share with you a couple of my recent purchases which I am in love with. First up, my new addiction – Aurifil thread…which I recently purchased three boxes. Aurfil Boxes I love how it sews, whether I am using it for piecing, quilting or EPP.  I love the colors…what a wonderful palette of inspiration. As you may be able to tell I have cracked open my Botanics box already  (the middle one) for my current project….and can not wait until I get to the quilting with the thread.Aurfil Cotton Boxes The second thing I am loving and so excited about is Cotton and Steel. After seeing all the IG love of Quilt Market (ah…someday, when I grow up), I could not wait to get my hands on it….especially on the basics package from them. Anxiety is growing….I have pre-ordered everything. to my surprise, Laura @ Little and Lots emailed last week, and put me onto this wonderful bundle; Moonlit by Rashida Coleman-Hale (Cotton and Steel). I am loving those arrow prints, and everything for that matter :-). CottonSteel_Moonlit Those are two of my favorite things.

Lastly, in celebration of my birthday, I also have a giveaway. A fat quarter bundle consisting of 15 prints of First of Infinity Text. BrithdayGiveaway_2014 Just leave a comment about the one quilty purchases/ things you are in love with at the moment. I will draw a winner randomly next Sunday. Hope you all have a good week. Linking up with Quilts from the Attic for Molli’s Sparkles Sunday Stash.

    51. Happy Birthday! Right now I am inspired by Jennifer S.’s new line, Shimmer. I won a charm pack not too long ago, and have been making cushion covers with it; it’s just beautiful! The colors are deceptively muted when you look at just one piece, but something happens when you combine them with other fabrics or eachother, and the colors and visual texture just pop and glow. It is very aptly named Shimmer. I am looking forward to the handquilting on these. Thanks!

    53. Happy belated Birthday! Well, I am new to quilting (and sewing). Right now I’m inspired by the baby doll quilt I made the crib my husband made our daughter. It was small, but a victory to complete anyway.

    54. Happy Birthday! I’m really digging the low volume/text trend. I am using them a lot as backgrounds in my recent quilts.

    56. oh my gosh, what a giveaway! Happy Birthday! (Sorry, forgot to say that first!) Hmm, I’m in love with the Daytripper bag pattern from Dog Under My Desk. I was anxious to make it, but then I printed it out. :-O It is a gazillion pages long, and now I’m nervous, even though I’ve made bags before. Thanks!

    57. Happy Birthday! I am currently enjoying building a stash. I think quilters eventually open a shop so they can say they aren’t hoarding – they are acquiring for business purposes. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Cotton + Steel. I signed up for a monthly club at Pink Castle so I wouldn’t miss any. Thanks again! notwendy gmail

    59. Happy Belated Birthday! I love anything with “Text” on it. Don’t know why…just love it! The latest thing I got for quilting other than fabric was a new seam ripper…they really should call them un-sewing assistant….seam RIPPER just sounds too brutal! ha ha! Thanks for the chance to win and again…Happy Birthday! June birthdays are great!

    70. I’m on a bit of a supply “fast” at the moment, but I’m really loving digging through my stash and making things with what I have on hand (sometimes I forget about the fun fabrics I’ve bought in the past!). Thanks for sharing!

    95. Happy birthday, Michelle! Hope you had a wonderful celebration : ) And it’s funny about your Moonlit bundle – I’m not in love with the entire new C&S collection (I might be the only one it seems since C&S love is everywhere right now), but Moonlit is the one line that does speak to me and I’ve been trying to dream up a project for it to justify a little preorder!

    98. Happy birthday to you!! I’m currently enjoying the fact that I have finally turned 20 blocks into a quilt top, almost. Still needs borders. I’ve had the blocks done since 2012!
