Kona Cotton - Cerise, Candy Pink, Pink, and Snow

Sunday Stash {3/11/2018}

Is it really adding to the stash when what is purchased has a specific project and need? Regardless, I have been accumulating some new fabric and thread for upcoming projects, and it’s awfully pretty.

I have some Carolyn Friedlander fat quarters that I have drafted a quilt pattern to use. I was pondering what I would use for the quilt backing when the BackSide Fabrics newsletter arrived last week showcasing the Widescreen by Carolyn Friedlander in Grey on sale. What a happy coincidence! I now have what I need for the project when the time comes.

I am really excited to get to text out the new Aurifil thread Forty3. I have a wholecloth quilt in mind that will be for my husband and I to keep, and I plan to share all the details on progress on that quilt when I have a chance to get started.

Last but certainly not least is this lovely grouping of Kona Cotton for another upcoming new design. I am surprising myself by continuing to enjoy working with pink more and more!

Linking up with Molli Sparkles‘ Sunday Stash.

  1. That IS a great backing fabric–looks like something I was looking for a while back. Congratulations on your fortunate find.

  2. You are such a tease :-) I’m waiting to see what you are up to. I’m not really fond of pink, but that grouping is lovely!

    All beauties, but will be even better once your creative genius is applied!

  4. I’ve used that same wideback before and loved the neutral colour. Let us know how the new thread works out.

    I’ve been in love too recently with the Kona cerise, and it looks like you’re maybe working on another transparency project? Anyway, I’m so excited to see the results.

    Beautiful. I’m looking forward to seeing your wholecloth quit plan.

  7. Great additions. It’s not stash if you’re using it up. LOL

  8. I’ll have to check out the shop that specialises in backings.
    Look at all that lovely pink!!

    I love that Carolyn Friedlander fabric. It is so great to have some new varieties in the oversize backings! I love pink, but don’t use it alot, so I sometimes find it hard to love.

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