Last week I had the pleasure of taking the 2018 QuiltCon Charity Quilt, Better Together, created by the Blue Moon Quilters to my local quilt shop to drop of for donation to Project Linus.
I picked up and brought Better Together home with me from QuiltCon. I removed the labels required for the show, removed the hanging sleeve, and was able to wash it for the first time before dropping it off.
Since I was at my local quilt shop, I decided to have a look around. I didn’t go with the intent to bring home almost 8 yards of fabric…
…but then I remembered the Aurifil Blocks of the Month. The color theme is black and white and a color, and I have already used up a lot of my black and white prints that I had in my stash. I was disappointed that there was only 3/4 of a yard left of the black crosshatch, but at least I got that last 3/4 yard!
And then I fell in love with these bright prints. I would have purchased the crosshatch print in every color, had the store had any additional colorways! As for the blue polka dots, I fell in love with this print when a student used it in her Wayward Transparency piecing in my class on April 12th. When I saw it in stock I had to have some for my stash, too.
I decided to buy a yard of everything. What is the yardage you typically buy for stash enhancement?
