Fabric Stashing

When it rains it pours (literally today);  the postman knocked twice to deliver fabric goodies.

From top to bottom:
  • Sugar Pop by Liz Scott - Mod Buds in Pink
  • Sugar Pop by Liz Scott - Mod Buds in Aqua
  • Robert Kaufman - Metro Living - Circles White
  • Robert Kaufman - Metro Living - Circles Carrot
  • Alexander Henry - Monkey's Bizness - Pirate Grid Old Red
  • Alexander Henry - Moneky's Bizness - Pirate Grid Corn

And from Lecien's  My Folklore fabric range (available from Hawthorne Threads)
  • Bouquet in Burnt Orange
  • Wall Paper Blooms in Sunset
  • Bouquet in Natural
  • Flower Border in Natural
  • Birdies and Ponies in Natural
  • Flower Border in Sand

The solid fabrics pictured above are Robert Kaufman Kona Solids, all of which I've been cutting into, arranging and re-arranging today.  Unfortunately it is one of those behind the scenes projects which I can't tell you much about ... sharing will be limited to tiny snippets - just teasers really.  But it will be worth the reveal at a later stage.  

I hope you've had a great day!


  1. Can I have your postman?? LOL

    Over the Christmas period I got a lot of things delivered, but now I seem to have 'dried up'... need to do some more online shopping I think... just have to work out a way that hubby doesn't know ;)

  2. cool fabrics! gotta love days like that!

  3. I love the mod buds, I think they were my favorite print in the cham pack. After the trees, though... I love them all, hope you'll find tons of inspiration even if you can't show anything yet.

  4. Hi Rita,
    thanks for the snippet - makes me want to log on and spend some $ now!!!

    Bye for now, Christine xo

  5. I love it when I get deliveries like that. Really brightens a dreary winter day!

  6. That sounds like my kind of day! Its all so wonderful how to you ever pick a favourite!

  7. Love the Mod Buds fabrics.

  8. I want some deliveries like that! Especially from the My Folklore line!

  9. Gorgeous, everyone of them! How I would LOVE to visit your stash!

  10. I just bought some coal recently for a project, too. I'm loving solids more and more lately!

  11. wow wish the postman had visited me lovely fabrics, dee x

  12. Oh my goodness! I'm glad you posted this - I have a strange obsession with Dala horses. I think I NEED some of that Lecien birds & ponies fabric!

  13. ahhhhh - that is just too perty!!

  14. Oh, you'll have fun with those :)

  15. I'm moving to Melbourne...

  16. oh gosh, i want everything in those top towo pictures. I'd want the third one too, but I have them already. :)

  17. OO, fun! I just ordered some Metro Living too - love it! I hadn't seen that Pirate Grid before though, very cute.

  18. Oooooh ... a secret project.
    Cant wait to hear more.

  19. I'm dazzled by 'sugar pops' in pink and aqua for spring! Are those heavier weight than run-of-the-mill quilting weight? Love working with heavier stuff.

  20. Coveting now...I think I need to splurge on some more fabric. Wait, maybe I should use some of what I have in my overflowing stash, then I can splurge...

  21. The postman brought me some handmade buttons today. They're lovely but not as nice as a giant stash of pretty fabric! Congrats :)

  22. LOVE the solids together...I have a really strange affinity for shades of gray lately!

  23. Look at all the lovely new fabrics.

    I do have a question though, when you are stashing, how much of each fabric do you buy?

    I find that I never know how much to buy. For fabrics that I know fit perfectly into a project I am planning, should I buy a yard? For fabrics that I love but have no idea what I will use them for, should I buy 1/2 yard?
