Sunday Stash – Wallop

To say I did some damage in the fabric store this morning might be a bit of an understatement.

Forty. Nine. Yards. I counted as I folded it to put in my stash. Except… it won’t all fit on my shelves. Whoops. Good problems to have, I suppose! I wouldn’t have normally purchased so much but I confess I was stocking up before the drought as I’m pretty sure this fabric will be the bulk (as in 90%) of my fabric intake for the first half of the year. Also, I was rewarding myself a bit for a good presentation to the other guild last week and for kicking butt at work last year.

Also, it was reallllllllly nice fabric. And I lurvvvvve it.

Excuses aside, I got a set of 7 panels for a One Block Wonder class (on Valentine’s Day), a set of 6 fat quarters, and a number of bolts mostly in lime greens, oranges, and a smidge of red polka dot for some Quilts of Valor. I also picked up some Soft Fuse to try and a new thimble.

In the finishes pile this week is the eyeball-seering scrappy quilt, aka Red Medallion. I’ll post pictures when it’s not dark out.  I’m also in the middle of quilting this fun 60″ giant purple star quilt – more on this when I post the finished pictures!

  1. Love the purple star quilt. Nice bolt choices. Need a picture of the panels before you start cutting them up.

  2. I couldn’t believe it when I read it on Twitter. 49!! But hey, you justified it well. Love the polka dots.

  3. Forty nine. Wow. If it were anyone else, I’d think it was a little overboard; with you, I have no doubt that it will all be used for beautiful quilts and good causes before we know it.

    The fun purple star quilt is SO FUN!! Love it.

    I also have that gear fabric on the top of the stack. I used it in Batman’s baby quilt. It is super cute.
