Sunday Stash

Well, I mentioned yesterday that I was shop hopping all day Friday.  To say the least, I got a bunch of fun fabrics to bring home to play.

First up are some fantastic fun prints designed my Cori Dantini.  I just fell in love with her work and picked up anything that I saw.  This one is from Merry Stitches...


And this one is from The Sweet Life...


And from Hello World.....


I just love those animals!!!  And here is another from Merry Stitches...


Aren't they adorable!?!?!   Now my daughter wasn't at all surprised to see the next one.  It's a panel of Christmas angels by Jim Shore...


Yes, my teenager even knew who the designer was.  Yes, I've trained her well.

I've been slowly trying to build up my stash of low volume prints, mainly in trying to have a good stash of background fabrics.  Here's one of my favorites from this shopping trip.  It's from the Little Things collection by Arrin Turnmire of Little Figs for Moda (what a mouthful!).  


Don't you love those little scrabble tiles??   Then I found a few more prints from Chances of Flowers that I didn't already have so I picked them up for the Union Jack project.


This little orange paisley just called out to me.  It's from the Folklore line by Lily Ashbury for Moda.  Lately I seem to be all about paisley.


Some more fun low volume prints.  I just love text prints, any kind, but this one is so much fun!!!  It's from the Bobbins and Bits line by Pat Sloan for Moda. 


I love that line, "As ye sew, so shall ye rip."  Yes, yes, and yes.  Next up are these lovelies.  I'm such a sucker for anything with scroll work and these pastels just had to come home.  These are all from the Coquette line by Chez Moi for Moda.


I just love this next one.  This is from the Love Notes line by Echo Park Paper for Andover.


This purple and white fabric just jumped into my hands.  It was in the clearance section and was under $5/yard.  I finished off the bolt.  What you can't see is that the design is all outlined with silver.  It's gorgeous!!  The only identifying marks it has says, "Patt#BTR-5662" by Blank Quilting.


This next batch were purchased in an effort to "lighten up" my collection of teals/turquoise fabrics.  Starting on the left the gingham is from the Picnic line by Michael Miller, then is Weave Linen by Moda, and lastly Carnaby Street by Art Gallery Fabrics.


Now, you can't see it very well, but this next one is another paisley print.  It was the end of a bolt and it is Noteworthy by Moda.  I used this in a previous quilt and loved it and had been unable to find more to add to my stash. So glad I stumbled across it!!!


And last but not least, three yards of Kona White.  I was down to my last 4 inches and was in the middle of using it for my Jane Austen Family Album QAL.  


There are actually two more low volume prints that got mixed in with my mom's purchases that didn't make the photo shoot.  Hopefully I can share them later in the week.

Did you get to go do any fun fabric shopping last week?  Please share!!  Linking up with Sunday Stash being hosted this week by Handmade by Mary Emmons.

That was a very good shopping expedition. Seeing the words "a metre of fabric for $5" makes me very envious! Quilting fabric cost a lot more here in the UK. The illustrations on those first few panels are adorable. Thanks for stopping by today. It's good to meet you :o)
