Sunday Stash: Stash Building

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.

Warm Palette colors:

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.

Cool color palettes: GreenStash

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.

Neutral Stash (of course mostly grays):

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).

    No, you don’t need to say any more about the sheep… after all, aren’t you a Kiwi? Seriously, they’e very cute, and I can quite see why you had to have them in both colourways…

      The fabric is Little things, Raindrop Grey manufactured by Moda. Its an older line (1 year) but still can be found in some shops.
