Sunday Stash #54 and a giveaway (now closed)

27 Mar

Today I have the privilege of hosting Sunday Stash while Molli enjoys the delights of San Francisco.  Don’t panic though he’s due back to resume his duties for Sunday Stash on April 10 – not too long to wait.

I’ve done a little bit of stashing recently, but not much.

I’m slightly embarrassed about this one; well the fact that I’ve bought fabric to back a quilt that hasn’t been made yet.

I’ve had this FQ bundle in my stash for 3 years, it was sent as a gift by Valori Wells, I love it but have not found the right pattern to use it in or is it that I’ve not had the courage to cut it up.

IMG_7992Anyway the lovely Judith has some yardage of this print Peony in teal from the collection in her Etsy shop at a great price so I bought 4 metres of it ready to back the quilt! IMG_7998

Now I need a plan for the quilt, any suggestions as to what I should do with 18 FQ’s?

I bought a metre of each of these low volume prints from Kim Kight’s collection Lucky Strike for Cotton and Steel.  I’ve done a bit of sewing with low volume fabrics recently and felt like I could do with a bit more to choose from, so no real plan for these just yet although I’m thinking about getting out a fabric pen to fill in the scorecards:


Also falling in to the shopping basket was a selection of Cotton and Steel FQ’s:

IMG_7991I’ve chopped them all in half and I’m keeping a fat eighth bundle for me and I’m giving the other bundle away to one of you lucky people.  I’m adding in a pdf copy of my Welsh Blanket quilt (Caernarfon) pattern and the current issue of Love, Patchwork and Quilting along with the free gift: Sunday Stash Giveaway

I would love to see what you’ve been stashing or what you’ve found hidden in your stash that you may have forgotten about (surely it’s not only me who does that!).  Please visit some of the other links because as Molli says ‘We want this to be a safe space for sewing supply collectors, after all!’.

To enter the giveaway (open internationally):

1. Leave a comment telling me what fabric you would most like to add to your stash, it doesn’t have to be a new line; maybe something from the past if you missed out on it.

2. Share the giveaway on social media and let me know in a separate comment.

3. Link up your blog post showing your stash additions or stash reflections below and leave a comment saying you did so to qualify for a bonus entry.

That’s 3 possible entries but you can only win if I can contact you so please make sure I can, if in doubt leave your email address with your comment i.e. iwanttowin(at)fabric(dot)co(dot)uk

I’ll ask RNG to pick a winner next Sunday and announce it here.

  1. Tula Pink, Tula Pink, Tula Pink! I haven’t gotten into shopping online (a slippery slope from the looks of some of the Sunday Stashes) and my LQS doesn’t stoke her. But I’m hoping a trip to the big city next month might help on my quest!

  2. Hmmmm… there are so many collections I’d love to get my hands on!! Anything from Sweetwater would be wonderful!!

  3. I am excited about buying some backing for a log cabin quilt I am currently piecing.. waiting to see how big it will be to make sure I buy enough fabric for a cool wall hanging 🙂 I am shopping on eBay and lusting daily over my choices presently! 🙂 Kathi Clower

  4. I’m loving some of the Cotton + Steel fabrics, particularly the octopus print I’ve seen.

  5. I don’t really know any fabric lines so I don’t really know what I’d like to add to my stash (and I don’t have a list), but the backing you’ve just bought from Jude would make it onto the list if I had one!

  6. What a generous gift, and how lucky you are to host Sunday Stash. My favorite stash save is 5 yards of blue ocean fabric with manatees!! What a great quilt back it will make. I love Big bold florals and low volume prints, hadn’t seen the one you shared by Kim Kight, it took cuts in front of Carol Friedlander on my wish list. Thanks!

  7. I’ve been stashing Tula Pink and cotton+ steel lately. Need some of the new sun prints too.

  8. I’ve had and have bundles laying around that I can’t seem to cut up either! I would love to see more Alison Glass Abacus in my stash. I’m not saying I don’t have a little…I just would love more! Thanks for hosting Sunday Stash and the wonderful giveaway!

  9. I wish I had bought a couple of layer cakes of Little Black Dress. My LQS says you can’t get it anymore. 🙁

  10. Since moving house, I’ve been scrupulously working through even the tiniest scraps, so I’d be happy to add absolutely anything to my stash! Cotton and Steel is a huge favourite though… How about a St Louis 16 patch with your 18 fat quarters? It works well as the bigger squares show off the fabrics nicely.

  11. I was on quilting hiatus when Cuzco by Kate Spain came out and I’m sad I missed it. That said, I look forward to stashing her Aria line.

  12. I have a long list of wants, just about everything I see I want. But if I could get anything I would love to get a full bundle of Saltwater by Tula Pink. I had just gotten back into quilting when that was released, and foolish me did not get any of it.

  13. I would love anything from Riley Blake’s collection. I have a hard time purchasing new fabric since my back injury but I would love a beautiful collection of fabrics. I love your blog! Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

  14. I would love to add each colour of the Mini Bracelets as well as the normal size Bracelets to my stash, they go with so many projects and are just lovely. I love the colours in your stash and would turn all of it into a fun temblor quilt. Thanks for a great giveaway too. x

  15. Architextures, I missed out on that one and can’t find the whole collection now… Sigh…. I do have a few prints but not all

  16. How to choose which fabric to add to my stash??? Anything by Carolyn Friedlander, Brigitte Heitland, Cotton & Steel, the entire Pearl Bracelets line – and that’s just a start! Thanks for the chance to win these gorgeous fabrics!

  17. I love all cotton and steel but if I could find any one piece of fabric it would be an older line of Wizard of OZ fabric “there is no place like home” also on from that line that looks line an old story book fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. I love all cotton and steel but if I could find any one piece of fabric it would be an older line of Wizard of OZ fabric “there is no place like home” also one from that line that looks line an old story book fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. Gorgeous stash additions, I like the idea of writing on that print! Thanks for the amazing giveaway! I would love to have more Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt, I have some that was kindly given to me but it came out before I started sewing. I’m hopeful it will get re-released!

  20. I’ll be adding Black and White by Cotton And Steel as soon as I allow myself to spend more money on fabric…….its been an expensive on-line shopping weekend!

  21. I really really wish I’d bought some of the Ruby Star Rising typewriters by Melody Miller. I do now have some of the cotton and steel black and white ones, but I still wish I had some of the original ones.

  22. There are a lot of fabrics that I’d love to add to my stash but I think I’d absolutely love to have Heather Ross’s goldfish in bags print! So many of her prints bring back childhood memories and this is one of them!

  23. I wish I had known about Carolyn Friedlander when she first started producing fabrics. I still don’t have any of her fabric though.

  24. I have admired Kaffe Fassett fabrics for a long time, but have not purchased any. I’m afraid once I do, I’ll just collect more and more of those beautiful prints! I do have other bundles in my stash that haven’t been used….just waiting for the perfect project.

  25. I’d love to add some Alison Glass Handcrafted fabric to my stash. Just love the colors! Had a similar situation of an FQ bundle hanging out in my closet – just recently ended up using it for the Grand Total APQ quilt-along. It was a perfect fit! Good luck with your endeavor!

  26. I have a long list of things I want to add to my stash — so many beautiful fabrics are available! One collection that’s high on my list is Flow by Zen Chic.

  27. I would love to add some Strawberry Biscuit fabrics to my stash! I love 30s repros and these are different than any I have already!

  28. I have started loving on all the low volume pieces lately. Would love to make a Scrappy quilt from many different pieces.

  29. There are so many past Tula Pink lines I wish I’d bought at the time (or bought more of!) that are now like gold dust. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful fabric – and that peony fabric is a great choice x

  30. I would love to get some Sommer yardage for summer sundresses and tops. I am also stalking some of my favorite shops for the new Mendocino (mostly the seahorses in yellow- 2 of my favorite things!). Thank you!!

  31. I have never purchased by collections. I always purchase fabrics that speak to me regardless of collection or color, but my preference has always been clear colors, nothing real confusing. Thank you for the chance to win and perhaps make something with a collection.

  32. There are so many fabrics I would love to add to my stash, but my most desired would be Saltwater by Tula Pink.

  33. I love Ramblings Tone on Tone geometrics in white. I buy them all the time. They go with everything.

  34. I missed Katie Jump Rope the first time–I keep thinking I’d better get busy and stash some away or I’ll miss it again and be sorry, because I really love Denyse Schmidt and always appreciate her lines even more with the passage of time.

  35. I dream of having some lovely batiks in my collectoin, island batiks really appeal but are not available in the UK

  36. I like Aneela Hoey’s designs and would like her Vignette line. Jenny larking at gmail dot com

  37. I would love some nice low volume prints for a project in the works and some brights for a Jen Kingwell pattern I am working now! churcaeatauburndotedu

  38. Hi Mary! Thank you for a great give away! I would love to get Maureen’s fabrics and more solids. x Teje

  40. anything Carolyn Friedlander … I confess I even ordered some from Australia (and I’m in the UK!)

  41. Last year I discovered (a bit late) the Lili-fied line of fabric. At that time it was on its way out. I found a layer cake on sale and I loved every print in the line, which rarely happens. Recently, I fell in love with the Blueberry Park line.

  42. I linked my blogpost – Sew Preeti Quilts. The picture shows four fat quarters that I received from a dear friend Sandra. Thank you for the opportunity to win 🙂

  43. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway and hosting this link up party. I think you bought wonderful fabric. When I was new to quilting I focused on buying a few fabric lines which I knew I would be using (and I did). I regret not having bought some of AMH lines in the past, however. I know how to change that! 🙂

  44. I still yearn after some Kumiko Fujita prints from years ago but there’s always more fabric to long for!

  45. Right now I mostly want Gertie’s chambray in aqua dots. I have an urge to do some garment sewing!

  46. I would love some Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt too. They remind me of my late Gran somehow and in a way that makes me feel happy and sad nostalgic at the same time 🙂

  47. I just reposted you giveaway photo on my Instagram thru my @beaningpole account :8

  48. I have always wished I had some of Heather Ross’s fabric of the goldfish in bags. I love all her illustrations!

  49. I am a huge fan of Tula Pink’s designs, and I would dearly love to add a FQ bundle of her Bird’s and the Bee’s to my stash! I love your low volume stash additions, always great to have on hand.

  50. I love the Carolyn Friedlander prints old and new. Have a few fat quarters, just wish I had some yardage. Thanks for the giveaway.

  51. I am wanting FLOW from moda, I just cannot decide what pattern to make so I keep looking at it and just keep looking at it! BTW, Valori Wells had a pattern for that bundle that makes a very pretty quilt…I think it’s still on her website.

  52. I have been waiting for Eleanor Burns new fabric line to come our, it’s beautiful and says summer to me. It’s called Forever love.

  53. I’d like some Rhoda Ruth, especially the starry ones. Just haven’t got round to ordering any yet. Graet giveaway!

  54. I would love to have some of Pat Sloan’s Hometown Girl collection and I really love the new Darlene Zimmerman line. Love the bright colors. They just make me happy.

  55. I’ve been on a stashing diet lately, but almost caved twice to buy some Peppered Cottons.

  56. If I were buying fabric (and I’m not, let me tell you – the size of my stash!!! although a giveaway, yes please ) I think it would be some of Heather Bailey’s Clementine line. I’m a sucker for pretty.

  57. I would love to add a bunch of things to my stash, like the new Refresh line from Moda, Strawberry Fields, Regent Street Lawn, anything with rainbow colors… I could go on and on…. 🙂

  58. I would love some Loulouthi. Between a tight budget and bad timing/when I started quilting, i missed out on this collection.

  59. I would add some of the provencal looking prints from the Moda Dear Jane collection. I love the mustard, red, and blue combos of those prints (don’t know if they’re still around, however!)

  60. I’d like to boost my collection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I’ve quite a few of his books and would love to recreate the riot of colours in his quilts.

  61. It would have to be flannel with child centred designs for the imminent arrival of my first grandchild.

  62. I’d like some padstow range by cabbages and roses. It’s an old line and pretty hard to find.

  63. I would like to add every line that Anna Maria Horner ever did to my stash. I love her colors ! Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I love these fabrics too! And thanks for your inspiring blog.

  64. I love so many of the new Lines…but I was sooo “addicted” to the “Marmalade” fabrics!!!! 😀 That is what I would love to add more of to my Stash! (Tho isn’t the ONLY Line my Stash desires…giggle)

    Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way! 🙂

  65. I would like to add some of Mary Fons’ Small Wonders fabrics to my stash! Thank you for the chance to win, winning something is lovely.

  66. Hi, just in answer to your first question – 18 FQs is I believe enough to make a Swoon quilt. Could be a lovely use of your Valori Wells fabric? M
