I've spent the last day adamantly complaining that I have no Sunday Stash. Can you imagine?! And yes, there was much eyebrow raising from my family who are surrounded by my stash. So I dug deep and came up with some prints that I have selected from new fabric ranges and added to stash in the last few weeks.
|Newsprint - Paint by Carrie Bloomston|
First up is Newsprint from the Paint collection by Carrie Bloomston (in 3 colorways - Not Pink, Coral and Spackle). My love for text fabric - in particular newsprint - continues. This design is a reprint from Carrie's first collection (Collage) which I have used as background fabric for my Liberty Checkerboard Quilt, and I know many of my readers were keen on sourcing this print, (but is now hard to find).

Whilst the design is the same the color of the Spackle colorway is slightly different: the new Newsprint fabric from the Paint collection is closer to a black/white print whilst the previous fabric was warmer, tinged with yellow and ever so slightly mottled. Both are great background fabrics and I've stashed yardage. Just in case.
Paint by Carrie Bloomston is in stores now and available from:
Pink Castle Fabrics
The Fat Quarter Shop
The Quilted Castle

|Yuwa - Retro Floral Daisies|
(quilting weight cotton)
|Yuwa - Classic Polka Dot|
These two fat quarter bundles, both by Yuwa, also arrived at my home in the last few weeks. The retro floral bundle (top image) is a quilting cotton weight (and has already been cut into) whilst the dot bundle is a lighter weight fabric; the thread count is higher and finer, but still suitable for quilting projects. Both these bundles are available from Westwood Acres as half yard or fat quarter bundles.
