Sunday Stash #4 – 2014: Goes Safari + Winner

I have a new favorite line everyone!!! Safari Moon. I did not see this one coming. I got my usual email from Hawthorne threads to say they had a new line in….I went to look and next thing you know I have 1/2 yards of the whole line.

The colors and designs are fabulous, look at those feather prints (blue and pink, middle) and those butterflies:

Sunday Stash #3 – 2014

The previous weeks of Sunday Stash 2014 I have posted about full bundles/fabric lines, which I tend to buy frequently. This Sunday Stash is about buying those pieces that you really like, and not splurging on the whole line.

First up, one of my favorite designers, Joel Dewberry’s and his new line Botanique (Purchased @Hawthorne Threads). I really liked these two prints/colors of Mosaic Bloom. I might go back and pick up some Domino, as well from this line – for now its on my list of possibilities.

Botanique

AGF came out with chromatics (purchased @Hawthorne Threads) and I picked up these prints: Triangularity (the ones on the left) and Pointelle (circles on the right). I loved the first two triangularity prints for some upcoming blocks that need some low-volumes. The rest I just thought made great stash pieces.Chromatics

Lastly, I am love with the colors and feel of the new Studio E Peppered Shot Cottons. These four, I purchased over the Christmas holiday at one of our Local Quilt Shops (Cary Quilting Company). Good news, I have a secret project in mind for these 🙂PepperShotCottons

 

That’s it for this week, linking up with the fabulous Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash.

Sunday Stash #1-2014

I have been planning for a long time now, to make a quilt for my son. I have finally put it on my goal list for 2014, August for his birthday.

I had purchased a Fat Quarter Bundle of Constellations a while back (March 2013 from Westwood arces), and made this cushion (the wonky universe) from it.

That gave me the idea to make a quilt from the same fabric….but the question arose…..will I have enough with only having fat quarters?? It was a little late to start thinking about this, as now, the fabric was hard to find. Then, low and behold last month, Hawthorne Threads got more of it in stock – it’s not everything but it has the best of the prints. I bought 1/2 yards of everything they had.

Here are the designs,  I am choosing between for my son’s quilt. I am leaning towards the first one.

A Mess + Sunday Stash {22.12.2013}

With all the Christmas sewing, and the fabric purchases over Thanksgiving, my sewing room is a war zone. This is what it normally looks like:
SewingRoom

Today, it is the war zone, all spread out over the floor (I don’t think I even got it all in the photo :-)).MessySewingRoom

See the two piles along the side of the table at the back….in fact, any pile that is close to my  project table that does not have a book, paper pattern or cut pieces on top…..that is all new fabric ready to be stored. I have a problem though…..I have run out of storage. After only a year, my 18 cubby holes in my project desk, has no more room. I am seriously thinking about joining the fabriholics anonymous pledge.

FabAnon

The rest of the mess are project piles, or a scrap pile I need to sort. Luckily, I have two weeks to either complete the project piles or clean up my war zone. Thank you for vacation!!!

In the meantime, in celebrating these fabric purchases, here is my Sunday Stash for this week.  I purchased these fabrics, as I am loving the mustards, pale blues, reds, blacks + grays that have been appearing in a couple of recent lines.
Mustard_Blues_Red_Greys_Black_Collection2

The first ones are all from “Bark and Branch” by Eloise Renouf for Cloud 9 Fabrics. I purchased these from Hawthorne threads.EloiseRenouf

These cute low-volumes that continue the blue, black and mustards are from “Up, up & away” by Skinny laMinx for Cloud 9 Fabrics, also purchased at Hawthorne threads. SkinnyLaMinx

Finally, “Twigs” by Charley Harper for Birch Fabrics….purchased from Fabric Worm (as they were on sale).CharleyHarper_Dandelions

One last look at them all together, hopefully you can also see how fabulous these could be together. Now, to decide what to do with them???Mustard_Blue_Red_Grey_Black_collection
