Sunday Stash #31 – Hookers and Notting Hill
Remember last Sunday when I was all but complaining about how I never knew where the source material for the coming week’s Sunday Stash post would come from? Then I laid out enough fabric for an entire quilt–I know: I am terrible, Muriel.
The irony is that I completely forgot to include these other goodies that fell in my lap last week! It’s all so serendipitous because now I can tell you about them for Sunday Stash #31. The double irony is that these fabrics came to me from Midge over at MsMidge, and she’s now using them to make a Swoon quilt that is, in three letters, TDF. (Be careful not to rearrange those letters!)
Anyhoo, Midge rang me up a few weeks back, and was like, “Hey girl, Intrepid Thread is having a fabric sale so cheap, the hookers are gettin’ jealous.” Not one to be intimidated by hookers, (’cause you know I can rock thigh-high boots better than any of them) I said to Midge, “Okay, let’s do it, let’s fill a box.” Which, now I see, was so double entendre, saucy me didn’t even get it. But we went to work.
My portion of that shared box were these missing pieces for my ever growing Notting Hill collection. I keep staring at them all wondering, what will I ever make with you. I feel like there’s something with triangles just trying to pop out. It’ll come eventually. For now, the coordinating colours and patterns are all just playing with each other, and they make me happier than any other fabric I’ve seen recently. Joel Dewberry, be still my heart.
Speaking of fabric designers, David Butler decided he wanted to be in another meme.
Linking up with Fiona at Finding Fifth for this week’s Sunday Stash-a-thon!
You should do the same.
