It has been a week of stashing basics .... you know, those fabrics that you use often and then without notice they are all gone. For me basics generally means dots, checks, and stripes, all in vivid colors and often with an element of white.
Simply Sweet by Barbara Jones for QuiltSoup
Purchased at SewDeerlyLoved on Etsy.
Simply Sweet has been around for some time, but somehow escaped my attention when they were in abundance. More readily available, and from my local patchwork stores, are these checks:
Both the green and the yellow check fabric are from a range called "A Day in the Country", an Australian owned fabric company (purchased at Patchwork House). The small and larger red checks are good quality lightweight woven fabrics purchased at Patchwork on Central Park.
And then of course there are several solids that are "must haves" in my basics stash. These are Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Solids and from left to right they are:
Snow, White, Bone and Pearl Pink - all subtly different, and therefore a little difficult to picture correctly. All purchased from The Fabric Shack.
What are your basics?
Note to the fabric budget auditor: these fabrics were not all purchased in just one week! : )
