Sunday Stash #93

A trip to the Australasian Quilt Convention packed with 95 stall holders under the one roof obviously means some fabric purchases.  How can it not?

No surprises here ~  dots!  These dot prints are Japanese fabrics.  The white dots on both blue and green backgrounds (randomly featuring the word love) have Olympus and Made in Japan on the selvage and are 100 % cotton fabrics.


The multicolor dots are printed on a natural cotton/linen blend base and are by Japanese company Sevenberry.  Available from Ballarat Patchwork.

Some fat quarters for stash building:
  • His Cruiser (bicycle fabric) is from Avalon by Jay-cyn Designs for Birch Fabric collection.  Available soon:  from Fabricworm
  • Measuring Tape fabric is from Tailor Made by Cosmo Cricket for Andover Fabrics
  • Black and White Stripe and broad Red and White Stripe ~ no selvage means no details, but both are 100% cotton fabrics.
And finally more Japanese fabric 30cm pre-cuts by Yuwa Fabrics and/or Cosmo Textiles with a focus on florals (again no selvage - feel free to leave info in comment section if you have specific details for these fabrics).  A few of the floral prints are re-stocks of long time favorite prints. 

Enjoy Sunday!

  2. Love the purchases. Is that cotton/linen blend rough? It almost looks like burlap, but I'm sure it doesn't feel like that at all.

  8. Since I had my second child last year, and since my husband is often in class and therefore I have less time to pawn the kids off on him and I have less extra cash to throw around, I don't get a chance to browse fabric stores any more. I must say, I always look forward to seeing the Sunday Stash. Forget smell-a-vision... I want touch-a-vision. Or, as I like to call it: TV.
    I'd love to just get my hands on those textiles!! Especially the lovely vintage florals. Thanks for sharing (always).

  15. Nice finds Rita. I go one quilt show a year (June in Sydney)and simply adore wandering around the stalls. I have learnt my lesson and go by myself. One year me 'friend' kept saying "havn't you bought enough". Geez. Lesson learnt. Go by yourself and buy what YOU want.

  23. I recently discovered the other day the disadvantage to buying fat quarters... you may not get the selvedge and know what fabric it is. Some of them I've been able to locate online from the shop I bought them at, but sadly not all.

    Oh, and I love those japanese florals. I wish my budget at the AQC had stretched to allow me to buy some 'just because' things.
