Sunday Stash #17: Grey Bundle

Last week,  both Ashley and Kate commented on pulling great stash fabric. Thank you and this post is for you guys 🙂

I love fabric!! My husband would definitely agree with me, when I say “I am an addict and proud of it”. I started off without much of a stash, but over the last 6-8 months that has been rectified.  Now, one of my favorite things to do is pull fabrics and put them together and see how different they can be with fabrics not from the same line.

One of my favorite core colors is grey, it is so versatile. You can use it

  • As a main color – this is an example with my Lotta Aerial quiltLottaAerialQuilt
  • or you can use it as a background fabric, whether it be a pattern/low volume
    Kea_InsideView
  • or as a solid, neutral
    Stitch_and_FlipQuilt

I recently bought a variety of grey fabrics and I thought I would share my bundle. These will be a staple in upcoming quilts.

Playing with hexagons + new fabric

A very good friend of mine, asked if I had any coffee cup sleeves left ,as she wanted to give one as a gift. I was excited about another order but I only had a couple of plain tops made (a black, red and blue one)  but none complete.  None of these tops were very inspiring.

Then, the other day I got an order from Fresh Modern Fabric who included a couple of mini charm pieces of Tsuru fabric line. I love this fabric, and I decided to make a coffee cup sleeve using these charm pieces + some solid colors (which were from my prize from “The girl who quilts“, thank you…thank you). Then, suddenly, I had another idea……lets try some hexagons. I used grey felt for the back in, grey cotton for the quilting, and of course, my usual hair-tie and button.

Here is the end result, I will definitely make a few more of these.

As I fell in love with this Tsuru fabric, I was ecstatic when I read a blog last week about the price cuts at Contemporary Cloth (I am so sorry I forgot who it was I read it from…..but whoever it was thank you 🙂 )…..guess what they had on special – yes you guessed it the Tsuru 8 fat quarter bundle. Today my bundles arrived:
