Sunday Stash

WOW! Another wonderful week of fabric swaps and purchases!
Plus to top it all off - I am starting to feel somewhat better with my chest infection starting to clear up thus in turn helping to reduce my asthma.

Anyway, on to more exciting things........

This was the first to arrive this week - 3 yards of gorgeous country angel christmas print.  At this stage it will probably become the backing to the MIL's Nativity Quilt but I am not 100% sure - but I picked it up from a FB destashing page at a price that was too good to let go.

Another FB destash page buy!  I have been commissioned to make two cushions using the panel on the left for a close friend - so couldn't resist when I found these two other panels and co-ordinates from the same range.

My Christmas Charm Square Swap arrived back to me - lots of great designs in this one and I am so glad that I sent two lots in, to get two lots back. I really want to start my Christmas quilt now - but with two quilts already on the go and determined for Christmas presents this year, I won't have time.

Some gorgeous flowers from my Hubby celebrating our 14th Anniversary and our 10th Wedding Anniversary. 

Some Vintage FQ's that I bundled together for the Vintage FQ swap that Jane is running from Where Jane Creates!  I am really looking forward to getting this one back - as I have already chosen a bed runner and 2 matching pillowcase pattern (from a new book that I am getting for my birthday in November) which I want to make with them.

And finally some gorgeous fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop thanks to the lovely Kristy from Quiet Play who offered to share some space in her latest order.

The lovely Marieka from my local quilt group brought some of this in to show n tell one day! I have no idea what I am going to do with it - but I just had to have some. I love it. Being blue it will go in with my kitchen well. Hmmm, perhaps some much needed potholders. I have a FQ of each and welcome any ideas!

Skinny FQ's of Ooh La La by Micheal Miller! I have finally found some fabric to do the Craftsy BOM QL which started in January this year! Yes I know, it is now Sept - but hey better late then never. Besides just by watching the tuts each month, I have learnt so much.

And some gorgeous cow fabric by Robert Kaufman to add to my growing pile of cow fabric - which will eventually make an oversized lap quilt.

Anyway, off to do a load of washing before sewing some pirate pants for Mr W for a dress up day at preschool and some birthday sewing for my Sister!

Linking up with Fi from Finding Fifth too - don't forget to stop by and check out all the other lovely Sunday Stash posts!


  1. Excellent additions to the stash! Hope that cheered your week up a bit too! Glad to hear that you are improving!

  2. So, if they are skinny FQ's, wouldn't they just be Skinny Quarters? Ha!

    Love that you have a growing stash of cow fabric. I'd love to see them all together.

    1. hehehe you make me laugh with these 2 comments.

    2. LOL! I totally thought the same thing!! Great additions :)

  3. Oh my you have cleaned up with fabric this week Kelly. Congratulations on 10 years of marriage - Dean and I hit that milestone on Friday and are off to dinner sans kids. You have been battling that chest infection and keeping up with farm life for a month or so - please rest up and get better girl.
