Sunday Stash

29 Sep

It’s been a good week for fabric stashing so I thought I’d share it with you. Tracey at Quilt Me Happy has decided to shut up her online shop and as a result is having a BIG sale.  I took advantage of this and bought half metre cuts of a number of Curious Nature fabrics:

Stashing Curious Nature

There is a FQ in there too that Tracey unearthed and a whole metre of the print on the left.  I’m now planning a quilt for my eldest brother.  He is quietly very amazing and has helped us out no end with the building work this year.  This is one way I can say thank you and I know he’s not adverse to lying on the sofa with a book and a blanket so a quilt can’t be bad.  I’ll keep you posted on progress.

I bought Kona solids to co-ordinate even though I’m not sure of the plan yet, there are a great range of Kona’s on sale from as little as £3.50 per half metre so worth checking out if you need to stock up.  Tracey helpfully pulled the colours for me as colour matching on a screen is never easy:

So they were the bargain stash additions this week, well that is until we come to the additions to my vintage sheet collection:

An early morning trip to the car boot sale last Sunday got me these:

And then popping into the charity shop on the way to school one afternoon I found these:

I am now struggling to fit all these into my vintage sheet cupboard so will really have to sort out FQ bundles for my Etsy shop.

Linking up for the first time with Sunday Stash which is not at Fiona’s this week but with Alyce.
