Sunday Stash #155 – White Noise

WOW! You know, as in white on white! I have visions of making another all white quilt, so I like to pick up the odd fat quarter here and there. In this case odd really equals eight! This is a continuation of the various stash additions I made on my recent trip to Japan, which at this stage seems to be never ending. Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got a lot of sewing to do. Oy vey!


Scrappy whites are probably my favourite to play with because of their extremely subtle nature. Low volume is still appreciated, although I often think it comes across as too cream for my own default aesthetic. That’s why I’ve coined my own term, “white noise.” I love this play on words as it references that background noise that you stop hearing (like this fabric), as well as the patterns (or noise) printed on each of these white base cloths. It makes me want to start sewing right now!


I did darken these photos just a tad to help some of the patterns shine through, otherwise you never would have believed me! The second one in the photo above has little houses; cute and unusual at the same time. Damn it, I should have bought two!

    Oh, I know the problems with white and white. There can be big differences! Do you want to make a modern wedding quilt with the white fabrics? I’m really looking forward to see the process.

    Heck I was straining my eyes a little! I love white on white and you are right it can then make other low volumes look cream and/or dirty! And remember, a fat quarter is never enough.

  3. I too love white on white – just got me some cool ones.

  4. …but I’m too lazy to write a post for Sunday Stash to share…

  7. White on whites have come a long way from the once tiny florals, love those!
