Charcoal Yarn Dyed Essex and AMH True Colors (FQ Bundle)

Sunday Stash {12-13-2015}

I am amazed at how quickly I can place an order with Hawthorne Threads and receive it. I went from toying around with an idea for a quilt, to placing an order, to having fabric in hand all within 48 hours!

I have never had any Anna Maria Horner in my stash (that I know of), so I dove in and bought a fat quarter bundle of her True Colors line. Most of the fat quarters even came with the selvage edge, so I’ll be lopping all those off first.

I have also never worked with Essex. I think this upcoming projects might just be full of a bunch of firsts for me.

Linking up with Sunday Stash to see what everyone else purchased this week!

  1. I bought some lovely stuff from Fiddlehead (I blame Kitty) but unlike you I place an order, have plenty of time to forget about it and then get a marvellous surprise two weeks later when it turns up halfway around the globe. Instant delivery is vastly overrated! 🙂

    Gah! That’s a good bundle to have! Hawthorne Threads has amazingly fast service, not to mention the best fabric selections! Happy sewing with this bundle!

  3. Great fabrics! Essex linens are some of my absolute favorite fabrics to work with, they have such great texture.

  4. I totally agree about Hawthorne Threads, they are super fast!

    Oooh these are a nice bundle! It’s going to be a pretty project! I don’t think I own any of the True Colors, they don’t compel me, but I can see how they work well together! I like your new profile photo! It looks like you’re peering at our souls expecting honest and kind comments. THE EYES COMMAND US.

    Yay! I love Hawthorne Threads. And this is a super fun bundle to have. 🙂 I’m so excited to see what you do with it!!

    Hawthorne Threads always has so much that I never see anywhere else, including their own fabrics. I’ve never seen Essex in person–is it a little heavier than a quilting cotton? I’ve wanted to use it as a quilt background, but not if it was “linen” weight. But I’d use it for a bag, if it was a little heavier. Hmmm. Love the fabrics you picked!

    Hawthorne Threads is great! This is a wonderful bundle to have. I find myself going to AMH’s True Colors line again and again. The colors are amazing and the designs always compliment what I am working with.

  9. Mary says:

    The True Colors are brilliant, I love a bit of saturation! Have fun sewing with them and enjoy the selvedges!

  10. Cindy says:

    Great fabrics and what a turn around 48 hours impressive.

  11. SarahZ says:

    I have never had any AMH either, but greatly aspire to some of those little medallion flowers! It is so fun to see this bundle up close and personal 🙂

  12. Brenda says:

    I had those in a jelly roll and had fun with them.

  13. Kaja says:

    I look at AMH fabrics a lot but for some reason have never taken the plunge and ordered, so I’ll be very interested to see what you come up with for these.

  14. When I saw this photo of fabrics on IG (or was it facebook?) – I thought they were beautiful and they still are. I’ve never used any Anna Marie Horner fabrics before. The colors look so vibrant. I’m sure you’ll enjoy sewing with them. Also, it sounds like Hawthorne Threads have some really quick elves working in their store to get it to you so quickly.

  15. These fabrics are delicious!!!

    Lovely colourful bundle. Hawthorne Threads sound the perfect fabric shop for someone sewing at the speed of sound!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
