So....what lovelies have made it into my stash in the past fortnight? Here's a peak -
Last week was the Coffs Quilters and Embroiderers exhibition so after my boys had hockey, I dragged them along to check it out. I thought that this year's quilts were a little more exciting than last year's - more colour, better fabrics and even some contemporary designs. There were several businesses with stalls so it was worth a look. Below are some small pieces (12" square or so) that I picked up for $1 each....kinda hard to resist - I mean one can not have too many spotty fabrics, and there was even some Kate Spain Terrain in there! The little birdie fabric is for Kristy from Quiet Play - she is such a lover of all things bird!
There was also a table selling $1 FQs - I only found this out because I bumped into Jane and she showed me her little bag of goodies. Again....you can't have too many dots and spots and I thought that the green might be interesting to use in a paper piecing project.
I bought 3 FQs of this red sewing fabric.....not really sure why.....I thought I might be able to either use it to make a new cover for my tabletop ironing board, or maybe fussy cut it for a paper piecing block. I do like the bobbins!
I was also lucky enough to receive some squishy mail this week. These lovelies came from a little FB business Fabric Letters and Appliques. I bought half a yard of the Hungry Caterpillar fabric - I still have a large bag of scraps and bits and pieces left over from the Caterpillar quilt that I made one of the boys three years ago. I am hoping to put together another quilt as a gift for a little girl who has a love of caterpillars.
I also couldn't resist the dandelion fabric (you know me!)
Also included in the parcel was half a yard of this groovy sushi fabric.
I have big plans for this fabric. I have joined a new paper piecing Bee with a group of gorgeous gals from QCA - we are going with the moniker of Wombat Stew. Alyce from BlossomHeartQuilts is kicking us off for September and has requested a "Sushi" theme. So I will be busily trying to design an 8'' x 8" block involving this fabric to send to Alyce in Japan! Nothing like a challenge!

So I think that's it! I have had been very good this week - there have been no other fabric purchases/ordering online!
Linking up with the lovely Fiona!
