Sunday Stash #114

Melody Miller - Ruby Star Spring
Ruby Star Spring -  Bloom -  in Springtime, Tomato Vine, and Night Lite
I am really drawn to the patterns, graphics and colors of the Ruby Star collection by Melody Miller, but I was hesitant about the feel, weight and drape of this cotton/linen blend fabric.  And so, my initial purchase of this fabric range were just those as pictured above.  But once I got my hands on these and felt how light weight these fabrics were, I couldn't resist and ordered a few more prints to add to my collection.

Ruby Star Spring -  Buzz  -  in Springtime, Tomatovine, and Night Lite

I adore the color palette as well as the quirky collection of bugs.  I've already envisioned multiple ways of how I am going to cut into the various sections of these prints.
And then there are these bees! Ruby Star Spring - Bee in Tomato Vine and Springtime.  And with a wing span of 13 inches these are definitely large scale prints. I am thinking they would look fun as a feature on a placemat ...

Original prints on an extra wide cotton/linen blend base that is definitely suitable for quilting making.

Ruby Star Spring available from:
The Fat Quarter Shop

Enjoy Sunday!


  1. I really like the fabrics in the last photo, not so keen on the insects :)

  2. I love the bees!! Will definitely need to save some pennies to get some! They all look gorgeous, be nice to see what you make :)

  3. I love the feel of this fabric and it seems to me that the colours actually glow! Definitely one of my favorites.

  4. I am someone who gets a bit creeped out by bugs, but for some reason that bug fabric appeals to me!!

  5. The bees are unusual and gorgeous!

  6. i can't get enough of those bees!

  7. Can't wait to see what you do with these!

  8. This fabric makes me want to sew something pretty!

  9. this is so nice, and your photos show off the fabrics really well! Can't wait to see what you make. I just found out this evening this line won't be reprinted, so enjoy it while it lasts:)
