Sunday Stash #28

Definition: To fussy cut is to target and cut a specific motif that's printed on fabric, rather than randomly cutting yardage as we normally do.

I found these fabrics at Patchwork House in Melbourne last week, and immediately thought they would not just be a great addition to the fabric stash, but also perfect for fussy cutting.  These Japanese fabrics are manufactured by Lecien and are from the My Folklore range.

I also love to stash magazines, and was happy to get my hands on a copy of Quilting Arts Stitch Magazine Fall 2009.  I might even try my hand at sewing something other than a quilt.  Maybe?  Purchased from the Crafty Girls Workshop on Etsy.

Enjoy Sunday!
