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.
Anyway 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!
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:
I’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:
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!’.
