I have been trying very hard to reduce my shopping and stick with “Sew my Stash 2015”. It has gone pretty well so far, except for the past two weeks, when I have not been able to sew. I call this the aftershock of QuiltCon, just too exhausted and overwhelmed – needing to recuperate (hehehe).
I will say, other than my new Janome Machine which I needed for traveling around, I was very conservative with my QuiltCon purchases. I only picked a few Japanese Fabrics. The calendar print I plan on using as backing for a quilt; the sheep, I mean do I need to say more :-)…and then of course some Yoshiko Jenzinji fabrics were included.
That was it for my QuiltCon haul, however, I have also bought some fabrics for my stash.
I am not usually a pink fan but recently have been working with it and I found I needed a little more brighter choices. I found those fantastic foxes at my LQS (Cary Quilting Company) and could not resist.
After attending Vanessa Christensen’s class at QuiltCon, I decided I need to pick up a couple of the Ombre Strips….I see new pillows in my future. My favorite print though, is that middle one with the bees and flowers. It is a print from Norwegian Wood by Hawthorne Threads Beekeeping in White.
These purchases were a mix from Hawthorne threads and LQS (Cary Quilting Company). I am digging the Katrina Roccella Cuneiform Script prints (3rd and 6th from the left). I am desperately waiting for some of the C+S black and white prints to join some of these in a new quilt design I am working on.
That’s it. Next week, I have a couple of fabric lines to share. Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash (see button on the right).
