It has been a long time since I have shared some of my fabric acquisitions. Rest assured I have still been picking up some new fabrics for future projects. I just have not allowed myself to start too many new things. There are just too many other WIPs around my sewingroom that need my attention right now.
I did purchase a fat quarter bundle of Melody Miller's Playful and a great Cotton + Steel blue backing. I don't have a plan for this one yet but I adore this fabric so whatever gets made will be for me!
A recent trip to my favorite local quilt store (Quiltwork Patches in Corvallis Oregon) had me buying up some backing pieces for my stash. I like to buy 4 or 5 yard pieces when I see a great deal. And around $5 a yard is a great price! I do have projects in mind for two of these - the rest I know will eventually find a home.
Yesterday I received some happy mail from the Fat Quarter Shop. I took advantage of their basic of the month sale and picked up these 4 yard pieces of Basic Grey's Grunge fabric. I enjoy having lots of different background fabrics in my stash - and when I can get them on sale, I enjoy it that much more!
I also added these fun polka dot fabrics in to the mix. I won them from Diann over at Little Penguin Quilts. I have a few ideas on how to use them swirling around in my head but I haven't made a final decision yet.
Diann also tucked in this adorable little pincushion made from some Gleeful scraps. I absolutely love it! In fact, I now have it in my livingroom so I can use it for pins/needles rather than my sofa back like I have done in the past. Thanks Diann!
I think there have been a few other pieces that have found their way to my house. I will try and be a little better at sharing what I am buying. I know I always like to see what fabrics people buy and in what quantity. I will be linking up with Molli Sparkles.
It will be fun to what fabrics other quilters are adding to their stash.
