Replenishing White {Sunday Stash}

Last week, I shared the bright greens and blues that I inadvertently purchased when I went to my LQS to pick up some Kona White (or Snow) and white Aurifil. Because my LQS did not have what I had set out to find, I placed an order through Stash Fabrics online and I was able to replenish the whites in my stash this week.

I picked up a 10 yard bolt of Kona White. Stash Fabrics offered a 10 yard and 12 yard bolt, and with the by the yard price being the same I opted for the 10 yard option this time.

I also picked up 2 large spools of 50wt Aurifil in white (2024) and natural white (2021). I have already opened and used about a third of one of the white spools, and I look forward to sharing that project with you later this week!

Linking up with Sunday Stash.

    Looks like it was a white week!!! I love the idea of 10 yard bolts, I’m going to have to check them out.

  2. Good Morning Yvonne! How wonderful for you to have 10 yards of white fabric on hand. I did the same thing with a great sale; only my white fabrics were a paisley and lots of Christmas prints. I am having so much fun using them. Now, I need to replenish solids in every shade. I look forward to seeing your project. Have a spectacular day!

    I was about to say it was a white week when I saw that’s already been said . Certainly at the inauguration White was the colour to dress in . If you can wear a white coat you must be rich ! Or have more than one coat

    Yvonne, thank you for directing me to Stash Fabrics. As if I need another source! I don’t use many solids so I look forward to seeing your project!

  5. buy fabrics by bolt!!! not in France, it’s impossible! You make me dream!!!

  6. I am always amazed at how different the white can be in each fabric. By the bolt, that’s the way to go.

  7. ^^^What Jean said above. White is so necessary and if you have to match you learn all whites are not … white, just the same as any other dyed fabric lots. I buy it in very large cuts or entire bolts too.

    Lots of white looking forward to seeing your next project xx

  9. Ii am so afraid of white quilts getting dirty, but I do want to make one some day soon! Do you have a recipe for cleaning white quilts?

  10. Nice! I need to bite the bullet and buy a bolt of white and one of grey, too.

  11. Can I ask why you don’t buy a cone of Aurifil instead of the smaller spools? I need to stock up on white and black Kona soon. 🙂

    Hi Yvonne, love all those bright whites & looking forward to seeing your upcoming project. I must be the only quilter on the planet not to have used Aurifil thread, is it really worth the extra cost in your opinion? Cheers Fi x

  13. I did the same for Aurifil thread this week.

    I love the bolt idea! I would love to have a bolt of white, snow, shadow, silver, nautical…you see where I’m going!! I should check out the deal from Stash on at least one bolt! :0

    I picked up 5 yards of white this week but ordered colored Aurifil… as long as it’s not snowing outside the windows, white is good!

  16. Great staples. I get nervous when my white bolt starts to get low or I only have a few Aurifil white spools left 🙂

  17. Tish says:

    Those colors are Aurifil are the ones I use the most. I need to stock up too.

  18. Some weeks you just need to replenish the basics!

    I have noticed that most of my favorite quilts have a white base. I am very nervous about using a dark color like red with the white. I don’t want to have to prewash my fabric. Do you have any suggestions for me? Do I really have to prewash everything? CWeber2002@aol.com

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