Happy Mother's Day.
I started surfing on Sunday Stash posts in March. I find it fascinating to see the fabric that is purchased by others. It really tells you something about a person's style to see what fabrics they are drawn to. I have been drooling over the fabric purchases of others, so here goes... my first Sunday Stash post. I don't think I shop often enough to post EVERY Sunday (though I guess I have a fair amount of fabric in my possession to draw from as well), so I'll spread out some of my most recent purchases. Starting with some of my very most recent acquisitions.
First, here's my first purchase that was inspired by seeing it on someone else's Sunday Stash post.
I'm bummed that I can't figure out where I saw it. I just remember that it was someone who blamed another Sunday Stash poster for showing it to her. Update: Lori found me! Here's here stash building post from March over at Crossquilt. :-) These are Polka Dot Stitches by Bee in My Bonnet for Riley Blake Designs, Words in Red and Gingham in Red. I ordered from Quilt Essentials on etsy and it came in this cute little bag:
Onto another pile of fabric, ordered from Hawthorne Threads. I have always loved the Urban Zoologie line. I have a piece of Owl fabric in my stash that I just serged the edges of and used as a table runner for an owl themed brunch last year and I used the Dinosaurs fabric to make an apron for my nephew. In general, I have to restrain myself from buying Urban Zoologie fabrics. However, The Girl is having a bug themed 2nd birthday party ("ladybugs. bees. butterflies. dragonflies." if you ask her) this month and I decided the adorable Urban Zoologie Ladybugs were the right call for making an outfit for her. The Turtles? They were a completely unrelated splurge. No plan for them. They're just so cute!
So, I decided I'll go with a top made in the Ladybugs and some kind of coordinating fabric for pants. Here are the options (left to right, Riley Blake's Medium Chevron in Red and Black, Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet in Chat Noir, Michael Miller's Chevy in Rouge and Robert Kaufman's Spot On in Red)... what do you think? (I realize now that I should have shot that in reverse, with the ladybugs on top and the pants options on bottom.)
Clearly I was into fun, novelty prints that day... Here are a couple others I picked up.
Lastly, I've kinda become a collector of Halloween fabrics. I love the oranges, purples and greens you often see. I have serious plans for an awesome Halloween quilt one of these days. I thought the Spook Crew were too cute to pass up and I loved the coordinating Spook Stars in Orange. Bonus, they were on sale.
I'm happy to report that the Ladybugs and coordinating red and black fabrics have all been prewashed and ironed and I'm ready to start cutting out pieces in the morning. Stay tuned for progress on the party outfit... I have 14 days. ;-) Thanks for taking a look! If you aren't already a subscriber, please join us by subscribing at the top right.
