Sunday Stash #114 – California – Part III

You know what all this orange Comma fabric means? It’s time to get that t-shirt quilt out again and finally finish it! I found all these goodies from a flash sale The Materials Girl Hermiston were having on Instagram. (A huge shout out to Colleen who alerted me!) They were clearing out the rest of their Comma stock at $6 / yard, and you certainly can’t complain about that. I bought nearly all they had left, and have the last of the bolt stickers to prove it! I ended up with an extra 3/4 of a yard, so it pays to take it in the end, ow!

I’m going to use this yardage to make a large portion of the back of the t-shirt quilt. Since it is about 100″ square, it is going to take every bit of it. I really can’t wait to show you guys this quilt because I’m so very proud of it. While it is largely made of t-shirts (obvs.) I think it has a very modern feel to it due to the crazy, randomness of all the other bits. Okay, so maybe it’s just a hot mess, but I know my brother will love it. You know you’ll always be able to truth tea me though!

I also picked up this yellow Comma yardage just. because. I have a vision in my head of another yellow quilt as an update to my very first quilt. I’m itching to be a bit more political and graphic with my quilt making though, so I’m trying to find a way to marry my two ideologies. All the #QuiltCon pictures on Instagram have definitely got my creative wheels spinning. This is going to be quite a year of creative changes!

    Comma is such a flexible collection, isn't it? I love to use it like a solid but those colours could easily be accents too.

    Those orange comma prints are delicious, I need some $6 yard fabrics to back a load of charity quilts, I found some great ones recently but they are all too feminine for the teenage boy quilts we are making – I know Ikea do that stuff that lots of quilters use but I am no fan of that!
