Sunday Stash

I meant to post these babies last week, but life got in the way last weekend. There seems to be a lot of new fabric purchasing going on round here lately, but fortunately there's also been a lot of destashing so I am diversifying my stash. It's all good!

These sweeties all came from the lovely Jane (when are Janes anything but lovely?) at Want It, Need It Quilts - she stocks a great range of precuts at awesome prices for an Australian shop.

First up, some sweet little Summersault by Erin McMorris. Love, love, love those little raindrop prints. And the colours are just gorgeous.

Then, the full range of Rosalie Quinlan's Folk Heart. I hesitated on these for a few days because I wasn't sure if they were really 'my colours' but I am loving them! The colours are fresh and pure and just a lighter version of what I normally go for. Gotta have some diversity in your colour values, right?

And this last little bundle was an impulse buy as it was a great price. You can never have too many black and whites in your stash and my collection has been sorely lacking lately. I may turn some of these into a skirt, as I saw a cute pattern for a fat quarter skirt on Pinterest the other day. Of course, they also make an ideal cat rest - Flash is competing in cat napping in the Cat Olympics.

I tend to shop by colour rather than collection or designer, so my priority when looking for new fabric is building my colour collections. None of these are 'new' collections, but that's okay. And I don't often go for the 'hero' fabrics in collections, but I love good blenders, and tend to get a little obsessed with having these in every colour... but that's a topic for a future post.

Linking up to the lovely Fiona at Finding Fifth, who is showing lots of scrappy love today.

PS: Further to my grumpy post the other day, I very successfully found my sewjo and have an awesome little quilt to show you later in the week.


  1. Am loving those fabrics by Erin McMorris - a few of those made it into my fabricshack order yesterday!

  2. I can see why the top bundle caught your eye. I wonder if Flash will let us have close up of his bundle next week?

  3. Ooh loving those Somersault fabrics! How has that line escaped my notice?!

  4. Ooh I have Summersault too! It doesn't seem to be that common, but I'm using it for my HST BOM :) I won the green colourway from Jane about a year ago and then bought up some pink and blue and orange to go with it!

  5. Beautiful additions to your stash and what a gorgeous cat!

  6. Nice additions! I see a lot of fun prints in that Folk Heart bundle.
