Sunday Stash {5/7/2017}

May is for Makers is all about supporting independent makers. I am probably stretching things a bit but I’m calling this fabric acquisition from Bernie of Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics a part of my May is for Makers acquisitions.

Sunday Stash – Rainbow on White and Hip to be Square by Kim Schaefer for Andover from Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics

The Freefall QAL is moving right along (I do still have 6 blocks to piece but have made a small amount of progress on that… more later this week), and I found options for backing and binding the quilt from Bernie. I am currently thinking that the Hip to be Square will be the backing and the Rainbow on White will be the binding.

I really love the Rainbow on White print, and I contacted Bernie to see if she had more than just fat quarters in stock. She let me know that she only had 2 FQs remaining, so I bought what I could. To my delight, I actually received the fabric as a full 1/2 yard cut because Bernie knew I had been looking for yardage. Taking the time to talk with small shop owners is so beneficial for everyone in the end. Thanks for the fabulous customer service, Bernie!

Linking up with Sunday Stash.

    I purchased a few yards of fabric from Bernie and will do so more often once I get through some of the stash I have on hand. She is great to buy from.

  7. great choices, I have the first 2 of the half and half leaf blocks done, next 2 ready to go. Serious concentration needed. That rainbow strips will be wonderful for a binding, bright and those colours would go with anything.

  8. That rainbow stripe print is magical! Must have! These will be great for your quilt.

    Oh they will be perfect for your freefall backing and binding. I love it when shops deliver fq as yardage, took me a while in the early days to twig with that

  10. They’re both beautiful, and that rainbow will make an awesome binding! Yay for great customer service 🙂
