Sunday Stash!

Funny, I was only just saying to the girls at Quilt Group today that I probably wouldn't do a Sunday Stash today as I don't think I had anything to report! 

That was, until I actually went trawling through my hidey stashing places and pulled out the below......

A huge 72 5 x 10"  rectangles for the I Spy Swap that I was part of.

Some Poly Cotton that had managed to find its way into my bag on a recent venture to Spotlight for some white Homespun. Not 100% sure what I am going to do with this - but at only $2.99, I just couldn't walk past it. I am thinking maybe a ruffle skirt for Miss Moo out of the three blue ones on the left and yet another coffee snuggly out of the apples for teacher's Christmas presents.

I did grab a metre of this Cherry Poly Cotton to make Miss Moo a top and 

I just couldn't go past this very cute The Grinch who stole Christmas fabric to make Will a Christmas shirt.

Would you believe that I picked up this gorgeous 2 metre piece of bug satin at my local Op Shop. Plus the lady only charged me $1 for it. Miss Moo claimed it the moment I showed her - so I am guessing a summer nightie perhaps.

And to top it all off, I received my Polaroid Swap blocks from the lovely Kristy from Quiet Play today at Quilt Group.

Which included 10 gorgeous owl blocks! These beauties are going to end up in a cushion for my Mum for Christmas. I am actually really liking the construction of Janice's Christmas cushion from Better off Thread that she created for the Sew Seasonal Blog Hop that Kristy from Quiet Play and Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts are running.

QCA Bee #2 - November Blocks

WOW - I can't believe that it is November already - where have the past 10 months gone?

Anyway, the lovely Janine from Red Quilty Girl is Miss November in my Queen Bee group and she has chosen a large Polaroid Block.

You can imagine my joy at such a lovely easy block. The instructions for this block can be found here at Charm About You.

Honestly it took me longer to go through my scrap boxes and FQ stash to find two pieces that I could fussy cut, then it did to actually construct the blocks.
