Sunday Stash #93 – Feeling Quilty
Sunday Stash is a whole hodge podge of crazy this week! Plus, I’ve got two winners to announce for giveaways from the past week. Let’s kick things off with the Beyond Neutral Blog Tour winner!
Per my request, a whole lot of you found quiltspiration by looking outdoors, a la John Q. Adams in his book Beyond Neutral. There were 61 responses, most of which I had never even thought about being quiltspiration; you got creative alright! I couldn’t decide which response was the best, so I had RNG pick a number, and Mr. Sparkles pick a random number to narrow it down. You won’t even believe it, but they both said 48. Strange! I couldn’t argue with fate, so, Gill, I’ll be in touch to get John’s e-book copy of Beyond Neutral to you! Congratulations!
Check out these printed license plates that Logan from the Men Who Quilt Facebook group sent me! I’m sure you saw these floating around during the row by row summer extravaganza in the US. Not sure how I feel about row by row quilts, but these cheeky license plates are divine! Maybe I could attach one to my Vespa!
I picked up a few fat quarters from my LQS, The Remnant Warehouse’s weekly BOGO Fat Quarter Friday sale. More Comma, I know, I think I must be trying to buy out the world’s supply. The other two pieces are AMH, of course, and while not a fangirl, I thought these made a nice bundle. Oh, yes, there was a fourth fat quarter, but I used it before it could be photographed for my House of Versace pillow and Cottage Windows tutorial.
This last piece is not new, but new to my fabric stash. It’s a piece of linen-esque home decor weight (oxymoron?) fabric that has been stretched across a canvas as art in our apartment for nine years! Well, Mr. Sparkles and I are moving house soon, so instead of taking the canvas with us, I deconstructed it and rescued the fabric. There’s about a yard there, so will make great pillow backings!
That brings us to my Second Blogiversary Giveaway for the Indian Summer cushion cover I made to celebrate. “What do you need two of?” I asked. Most of y’all were all about chocolate and coffee (yeah, me too), and close behind were all sorts of alcoholic beverages in both hands. Seriously, my Glitterati, we were meant to be together! I let Mr. Sparkles pick a random number from the 143 responses, and he chose: 77! Mary – I hope you’ve got some room on your couch!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve gotta go be a Quilt Diva and get some shoop-shoop-shoobeedee-doop done!
