Sunday stash #10

I have had some last minute additions to my stash this week. Kristy from Quietplay and Jane from WhereJaneCreates both live quite close to me, so when any of us do an international fabric order we check if the others would like to help fill the postage bag. Last week Kristy did an order with Fabricshack and put the call out for help to make up the 9 yards. I said "pick me, pick me!!"

So yesterday on her way to Spotlight, Kristy dropped in my purchases! I ordered two charm packs - always good for a small project and variety.

The first pack is Reunion by Sweetwater.

Such happy fabric! I love the bunting. There is also quite a few text prints, which are always fun to pop into a paper piecing block.

My second pack is Spa by Deb Strain

I actually hadn't seen this fabric range before, but was sold on the colours. Lots of blues and whites....kinda like tiles. You can see the full range below

I also ventured to Spotlight yesterday. There was 40% off all quilting fabrics, so what's a girl supposed to do??!! I picked up this pretty fabric from the Denyse Schmidt range...I thought it would make a good binding (i like spotty bindings!)

I also bit the bullet and bought close to a full bolt of white homespun - I got 13m (a full bolt at spotty is 15m). I also bought 5m of grey homespun. The total for my 19m of fabric?? $80! Now just to hide the bolt! This won't be too difficult as we are moving house next week and I have bought 2 new 80L storage tubs for all my sure I can pop it in there and hubby won't notice.

Now I did also get some Lotta Jansdotter fabric love from Kristy this week, but I have zealously packed it away so I can't show that to you :(. Maybe next week!

Linking up as always with Fiona from Finding Fifth


  1. Can't wait to see what you make with your charm packs! :)

    I don't think I have ever bought so much fabric in one hit at Spotlight - it's a bit nice to know you're not going to run out of white/grey in a hurry isn't it!

  2. Ooh, Spa! I've admired that line for a few months now - a blue and white quilt is on my quilting bucket list!

  3. lovely fabrics! how nice to have quilty friends to split postage with :)

  4. I have never seen 'Spa' either and I am liking what I see too! 80L tubs sound very good for fabric - so I am guessing that you are not putting your stash into storage. Good girl!
