I have made many, many fabric and other sewing related purchases lately. What I am sharing here today is truly only the tip of the iceberg… I am eagerly waiting the delivery of many more packages over the next week or two, so buckle in and hang on!
I am eagerly looking forward to attending a quilt retreat in November (Quilt Bliss). I signed up for the rainbow fabric swap, and I received notification this week that my color is yellow. I will be cutting (26) 10-inch charm squares out of 2 yards of fabric. I found Curiosities Firefly Jar in Glow by Art Gallery on the Pink Castle website, and it stood out to me as bright yellow. In person it is a truly bright, almost highlighter yellow, and I will be cutting the yardage up and setting it aside in anticipation soon.
I received the weekly email from BackSide Fabrics about their specials for the week, and I couldn’t resist the great deal on the Studio e Prisms print. I picked up quite a bit of the aqua colorway without a plan… but the next day I used it as the basis for a quilt design and I will be getting to share the coordinating solids for that quilt with you soon!
Jo-Ann fabric is currently having an amazing deal on their Kona solids; the fabric is 40% off and don’t forget to check out their online coupon codes for additional savings. I ordered several online (see previous comment), but I also stopped by a store to use my birthday 20% off total order coupon and picked up a yard of bone, bluegrass, turquoise, royal, berry, and 4 yards of white.
And since I was picking out fabric for several new quilts, I went ahead and color coordinated with Aurifil thread and picked up 6 new large 50wt spools from Hawthorne Threads. I love having the color card on hand! As well as working to color coordinate between my Aurfil and Kona color cards, I was also almost completely out of piecing thread, so I picked up Dove (2600) to try along with my typical Stainless Steel (2620). I am so excited to dig in and start some awesome new projects… what have you been adding to your stash lately?
Linking up to Sunday Stash.
