Sunday Stash #113 – California – Part II
I’m slowly, yet feverishly, working on finishing up my queen-sized AMH Feathers quilt. It wasn’t until I sort of got half way through constructing the blocks that I thought to myself, “Um, this shit is real and you need to start thinking about a backing.” Do you do that, too? It’s like I can’t commit to buying backing material until I’ve fully realised that the front is gonna happen. Then I had a small freak out thinking I wouldn’t be able to find yardage of Jennifer Sampou’s Shimmer range. All was not lost though. Hawthorne Threads had plenty, so I got the white for the backing, and the bronze for the binding. This quilt is gonna be dripping in luxe.
Oh, and do you even see what’s in this picture? Yes, that is a rotating cutting mat! AAAH! I’m so excited by this. It actually makes me want to go make some half square triangles, so that it and my Bloc_Loc rulers can make mad, sweet love. There’s ten new rotary blades for me, and a new rotary cutter for daughter, Charlotte. (<–pictures and post pending on that last note).
This is the part where it gets all random, and not even crazy-cakes-me knows what’s going on. I think my stash must be having babies. That happens, right? Surely I can’t be responsible for all of this fabric buggery? Oh, that’s right, yes I am! (Go figure.) I just found these Jeni Baker half-yard cuts that I purchased from Intrepid Thread during last year’s Black Friday sale. Only three months later, but they’re still fabulous!
Someone stop me! But then, Sunday Stash would never be as fun!
