A Little Stash to Share

A couple of posts ago, I told you that I'd been unable to resist joining in with the Geode QAL with Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts. I've loved floral fabrics forever, bought and also made many dresses, skirts for myself and outfits for my daughters with beautiful floral fabrics. When I saw Bernie's post on Instagram of this fat quarter selection of 'Wild Bloom', bari j's latest line, which she is carrying in her Etsy shop, it beckoned me, floated into my subconsciousness, and then bobbed up into my consciousness whispering, 'you need me'. I'd already intended to buy a rainbow stripe from Bernie for one of my three RSC2017 projects.  This is from Andover, 'And Z' by Kim Schaefer. It needed company on the long trek across the country from west to east right? Bernie also sent a fat quarter gift (aww! she's so sweet) of the text fabric which I plan to incorporate in my Splash of Colour QAL.

Round about Wednesday you can watch for my turn on the 'Winter Games' by Amanda Murphy blog hop on Benartex's Sew In Love With Fabric blog. Here are the fabrics I'll be working with:
I love a fresh take on Christmas colours, and there's just something about turquoises and red with some lime that I find myself more and more drawn to. Check back on Wednesday to see what I make! To be honest, at this point in time, I can't wait to see what I make, lol.

A little surprise for me was seeing that Craftsy (affiliate link there and below) is having a decent sale (up to 50% off) this weekend on kits and supplies (maybe I was snoozing and deleted an email from them? Was not aware...) Just letting you know that one of the kits I bought on a previous sale is back on sale again, along with other kits, and all the Dutch Garden line:
It is really beautiful fabric and a very reasonable price. I am glad to see they have added in the 'what you get' description that the 4 2/3 total yardage is comprised of 5 charm packs and 1 yard. I had planned to make a different quilt, and had expected yardage, but now I look again at the stars one, I'm liking it a lot more!
As always I thank you so very much for using my links to click through as I get a commission if you make a purchase. 🙏 I only am an affiliate for products I do buy myself from companies I patronize.

  8. Yummy fabrics! I love the rainbow stripe. Those splotches of white make it more sophisticate and less "circus stripe."
