Sunday Stashin' #5

Confession: when I buy fabric online, I BUY FABRIC ONLINE.  

The other day Kimberly asked me if I had any Kona Snow as she needed it for a bee block. I had some scraps but not enough so I offered to grab her some online. I hadn't really bought any fabric since winter (except supplies for FLSPQ and the backing for Blue on Brown - both of which are finished) and I wanted a few things as a bit of a treat. Three packages in the mail later and her are my new babies:

From fabricworm (to be fair, all the Amy Butler fabric was ridiculously on sale):
Amy Butler, Belle, Coriander - Pine
Amy Butler, Belle, Acanthus - Teal
Amy Butler, Belle, Acanthus - Olive
Robert Kaufman, It's A Kid's World, My Tribe Stripe - Lime

Robert Kaufman Kona Solids in Peacock and Coral

Fat quarter bundle of Riley Blake Quatrefoil (LOVE)

From pink chalk fabrics:
Kate Spain, Daydreams, Arcadia - Persimmon
Amy Butler, Soul Blossoms, Temple Doors - Fresh Mint
(and also the Robert Kaufman Kona color card shown below)

and from Amazon:
Jaybird Quilts' "hex N more" ruler and "Norther Lights" quilt pattern - yay!

So I really need to get busy with some sewing now! Happy stitches to you all!


Linked with Mary (:


  1. Nice additions, you will love the ruler and pattern, it is so quick to put together, do you have fabrics planned for it?

    1. Thanks, Mara! I haven't pulled fabric for Northern Lights yet, I have a lot of projects in progress right now. I do, however, have a nice fat stack of solids on hand, so as soon as I cave I'll have a lot of fun putting those together. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Nice addition. Colorful and fun.

  3. The Quatrefoil is wonderful. Reminds me of Morrocan holidays, not that I've ever been there! I have a charm of Daydreams and that print is my favourite. I'm not really a pink girl, but would love a dress made from it.

    1. Thank you, Fiona. I am really like the 2 tone prints lately. And yes, as soon as I saw the quatrefoil I had to have it, even though I hate paying full price!

  4. Ooo yes love some Amy Butler Belle, I bought a FQ bundle first time it came out and stashed it for years, I still have little scraps hanging around! thanks for linking up

    1. Gotta love Amy Butler! Thanks for visiting!

  5. I love your quatrefoil. I also got the (mini) ruler and northern lights this week! I am quilting it now. It is so cool and goes together very quickly.

    1. Thanks! I love it too but I'm worried I love it too much to ever use it! Thanks for stopping by!
