Sunday Stash #72

It is not as if you haven't already seen enough striped fabrics here this week, however as many of my striped fabrics have emerged from my stash I thought I would show you some of my basic stripes.


Narrow striped fabrics,
in a single repeat and single color
alternating with a white stripe.


Wider striped fabrics,
these are "Clown Stripe" by Michael Miller


Simple stripes are a classic stash addition that will never go out of date; always a safe option for adding a striking and eye catching effect to your quilt, particularly useful as a binding fabric.

Enjoy Sunday!

  1. I am always nervous using stripes IN a quilt b/c I am worried it will end up crooked (some of us do not have surgical precision with their presser foot & needle like you!) but I love love love a stripy binding.

  2. I just did my first striped binding and I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to anything else! It just looked so good. Loving your stripy collection ;)

  3. To me, spots and stripes are the Little Black Dress of the quilt world, and single colour + white stripes are the best of all.

  4. Stripes are great. Agreed - they're wonderful for binding. I have an ongoing collection of stripes just for that purpose.

  5. I've just left a comment on your Flickr photo, asking if these were intended for bindings! I'm getting to know your style, Rita. I had never thought of using stripes, spots and checks for bindings until I saw your quilts & now do it all the time which I think has made the quilts look more striking. Thank you for your inspiration.

  8. Very inspiring. When you add fabrics to your stash such as stripes, how much do you purchase? Thank you for sharing your stash photos.
