Sunday Stash #15: Building ones stash

I have mentioned previously that I am trying to be more selective on the fabrics I choose. So, there are certain fabrics and colors that I use more than others like low volumes, text prints, blues, greens, oranges and yellows. I am always on the look out for prints that fit the bill….

TreasureMap_FabricsThese first ones are all from the fabric line Treasure Map by Lesley Grainger for Riley Blake. I loved the wave prints, grey is what I feature above. I think these prints are just good solid basics for any stash.

Detour_text_prints I love these text prints, image these as pillow/cushion backs!! The fabric line is Detour by Bo Bunny for Riley Blake.

low_volume_prints I have mixed feelings about the low volumes purchased here…well really its just the one print….I am not thrilled with the green sewing text print but I have been using it in some bee blocks and it looks ok. I can’t remember where I purchased these but I think it was on sale somewhere (doh…is that a bad sign).

That’s it for this weekend. Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash (see button on the right).


Riley Blake MQG Challenge – Fabric Choices


So, now that the design is complete, and I am going with the theme of ” A Fine Day”, the next step was choosing the fabric. Yes, it did mean I bought up some extra Riley Blake prints 🙂

Fabric Stash {14.07.2013} + Pin cushion

I have been busy, busy, busy this weekend. I have finished the baby quilt but I am going to hold out so I can take some good photo’s, but I did get to share it in our quilt guild meeting today. I got some great feedback, it looks pretty with the binding and now being washed.

Also, at the quilt guild there was a pin cushion swap…..this is the pin cushion I made (it is based on this Christmas Ornament I found on pinterest this weekend). I filled it with brown rice – next time I think I will mix it with stuffing and rice. Linking up with Let’s get Acquainted Monday, hosted today by Em @ Sewing by Moonlight.
