Stash Splurge

Over the last few weeks I've scored some good online deals and as a result have increased my stash. I know of others that have gone on fabric diets but I like to think that I'm cautious enough that I won't ever have to resort to those measures. But I'm really excited about what I've picked up.

Couldn't pass up a charm pack of Into the Woods - I just love the mix of pinks, reds, and aquas. Next up are 3 layer cakes.

My favorite purchase of the lot is Somerset by Fig Tree & Company. I have so many ideas on what I want to do with this that it will be hard to choose a specific pattern. The layer cake in the middle is The Cottage Garden by the Quilted Fish. What drew me to that fabric line was the triangle prints and the text prints. The last layer cake was a true impulse buy. It's Flirt by Dear Stella. I don't have a lot of pinks in my stash but I really liked the combination of the pinks and reds with the varying shades of gray. There are also polka dots and I'm a pushover for those!

The other 2 fabrics are for my pinwheel quilt.

The green fabric is for a 5 inch border all the way around. It's the Lady Edith small branches fabric from the Downton Abbey line. The floral paisley is Rosemont Malabar Ivory and is a wide back fabric for the back of the quilt. I was on the fence about this particular fabric but I know that the recipient for this quilt will love it.

Now I just need to finish up my holiday sewing so I can get to using these. Nothing like the lure of new fabrics to motivate me!


  1. very nice buys here, and the paisley is beautiful, good to see paisley is back in fashion. No more purchases for me except if I need something for a project well I say that now things could change due to temptation!

  2. Layer cakes are really handy. I find them big enough to be useable when you want a variety of fabrics in a quilt. Enjoy your purchases! (Love the Somerset range too.)

  3. Love your new fabrics especially Somerset! That pinwheels quilt is also awesome! I agree holiday sewing is getting in the way of my fun!

  4. What a lovely wide back fabric. For some reason when it comes to picking backing fabric my brain just can't seem to remember wide fabric and I end up piecing the back 99% of the time.
