Sunday Stash #26 – Let’s Get Loud
First, we’ve got some business to attend to up in here! Last weekend I posted an open letter called My Right To an Anniversary, which outlined my desire for the government to allow me to marry the one I love, while also marking my one year sewing anniversary. It was a momentous occasion on both fronts, as the letters of support I received reaffirmed my belief that y’all quilters are a fine breedy, indeedy! Whenever the wedding happens, you’re all invited (as long as you bring gifts)!
Now, for that business! As part of my celebration, I wanted to give away a little part of the Magic Suitcase, and chose this Tula Pink fat quarter. Ms. Mini Me used Mr. Randy G this evening and this is what he had to say about it:
Jane S. I will be in touch to grab your addy and send this Hula Hoop fabric on its merry way! Y’all want some more fabric tales, do ya?! I know, I just can’t get enough either! Well, this week I had to take a trip to Spotlight (for my international visitors, it’s sort of like JoAnn’s) to get some low volume fabrics so I could complete some of my most recent bee blocks.
I already see you clutching your pearls and hear you saying, “But low volume is so, so hot right now. Why don’t you have any low volume? Surely, you have some low volume. You have to have low volume. Everyone has low volume. BigFatThreads.com.co.nl is having a 37% off sale on everything low volume. You should totally get some low volume. I can’t believe you don’t have any fabrics that are low volume. It’s all about low volume. The lower the volume, the better the low volume. Low volume so low it is volumeless. Yes, low volume. Low volume. Volume low, low volume.”
I get it. Low. Volume. Except here is the thang, Molli B. Sparkles ain’t low volume. I am a loud-ass bitch, who likes over-saturation, bright colours, high contrast, and wackadoo colour combinations. Sophisticated, but wackadoo. Work!
So, this is what I bought.
These two? Well, they literally jumped into my hands out of protest. There was also a neon pink and yellow heart print, but he fell overboard at the last minute. Such a loss, he’s already sorely missed.
Linking up with Fiona at Finding Fifth for this week’s Sunday Stash-a-thon! You should do the same.
Somebody text me when the low volume fad is over.
