Sunday Stash #45 – Don’t Judge Me
Don’t judge me. I had to suspend the Magic Suitcase V2.0 unveiling this week because I sort of went off the rails and supplemented my stash with some purchases. Sigh. But I needed them! I promise I did. Yeah, you can stop rolling your eyes at me, that is if you want to keep that weave attached to that pretty lil head of yours. Mmm.
These first three are all of the whites I bought while on my trip to Canberra with Grandma Sparkles. (Local quilt shop reviews here). I made the photos a bit darker than they really are so you can see the patterns in each. They are even more subtle in real life. I’m tentatively calling this quilt “No Value Does Not Mean Free” because I may be a fabric hooker but Molli don’t work for free. Snap!
So then I got (what seems to be) my monthly instalment of fabric from Intrepid Thread. Ms. Julie is not good for fabric hookers like me. She just baits it in front of me, and I always fall for it. Always.
Yes, I did buy all of the remaining Color Me Retro stock, and no, you can’t have any of it. Don’t make me get my whip! These are destined for quilt backs (they don’t have a front yet–no bother!) and I know I have a few Color Me Retro quilts in me. I must get them done before Jeni’s new line, Dreamin’ Vintage drops in April! (Nordika? Meh.)
I also picked up some yardage of Salt Air for quilt backs. I have found Salt Air pleasant since it first came out, and while I have no current quilts for it, these will be geometric enough to squash my floral fears.
Collage! Great purples and great reds! These are severely lacking in my stash, so I was glad to grab half yards of all of these. Oh, and yeah, okay, throw the yellow in as well!
Lush Uptown, you had me at ombre.
Okay, I know you’re now thinking, WTF is that floral doing in there. I know. I know. There is no excuse. But I can’t help it, I love it! Let me scream it from the rooftops: I LOVE IT! The watercolor-ness of it all, the ombre of oranges, the translucent teal, the pops and sketch of the blooms. It is everything I want in a floral. I could frame it and put it on my wall. Actually…
If you haven’t noticed, the past few weeks I have been experimenting with taking my fabric photos in different places and ways. I was just getting bored with all that white, but I do like its regularity. Bear with me while I work it all out.
