This is actually my first Sunday Stash. I don’t normally do one because I accumulate fabric at odd intervals. But I was in Florida last week and got to visit the most wonderful quilt store: Wandering Stitches. Sadly (for my checkbook, not them) I will now have to visit them every time I’m in the area. They have the most amazing selection of wide backs and batiks that I’ve ever seen. Truly awesome.
The first thing I grabbed was some yardage from the Happy Home collection by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery fabrics, above. These will make the perfect pillows for my living room.
Next, among the awesome selection of wide backing fabric, I found this swirly flannel from Wilmington. I’m working on a pink baby quilt for my cousin and this will be perfect. I had previous bought some pink chevron wide back fabric by Riley Blake which would have also been nice, but this will be so cuddly. I’ll save the Riley Blake stuff for something else.
I grabbed some stuff to have in the stash. The left is Heartfelt in leaf from Art Gallery. I love the phrases on it. I’ve been really into inspirational/motivational phrases on fabric recently. And the other is some white on white stars. I figured this will make a great background fabric for something at some point. It was quite cute and I hadn’t seen something like it.
Finally, my big splurge: voile. On the left is Midnight Roof by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery. I absolutely fell in love with this fabric when I saw it. My plan is pajamas. It will make the most perfect pair. I can’t wait to snuggle up in them with a cup of tea and a good book.
The right fabric is Triangle Tokens Voile in Agave by April Rhodes for Art Gallery. This one was a guilty buy. I had a coupon to Wandering Stitches and ran in on the way to airport. I was looking for some pink batik but couldn’t find what I wanted so I grabbed this. I think it’s awesome. I got way too much of it, but that’s okay. It’s usable for so many things — shirts, dresses, pajamas. So I know I’ll use it. Just not sure what yet.
Art Gallery has some great voiles out right now. I’m really going to have to restrain myself.
Finally, we also hit up another quilt store in the area. It was much smaller and not really my style (every quilt store has its own personality), but I did fine this fun fat quarter of sewing newspaper print. Such cute fake articles!
