Sunday Stash!!

Boy did I have fun Saturday!!  I needed some fabric for a block swap and my son wanted to take me fabric shopping for a late Mother's Day gift!!  I know!  What a great kid!!  So without further ado, let me share my fun fabric finds for this week!

I'm doing a block swap called the Friendship Supernova Block Swap being hosted over at Late Night Quilter.  My swap partner and I settled on Kona Steel for the background and True Colors by Anna Maria Horner for the main blocks.

For those of you that don't know, Fat Quarter Shop has Kona on sale for $5.59/yard.  I picked up 3 yards of the steel and 3 yards of snow.  I got these True Color fat quarters at one of my favorite local quilt shop, Valli & Kim.  If you ever find yourself in Central Texas, you really must stop by.  You'll love it!  Trust me!

While there, I got a few other goodies!!  I finished off the bolt on this fabric from Garden Party Tango by Wyndham Fabrics...

a few fat quarters for another block swap, this one in turquoises and browns....

and these goodies!  My mom was with me.  She loves to buy fabric but she hates to sew!  Which totally works for me.  She builds my stash!!!  She grabbed two yards of each of these...

The green swirls are from Nite Owls by Judy Hansen for Paintbrush Studios, and the lighter green is from Krystal by Michael Miller.  I tried to tell her we bought the Nite Owls in April at the shop hop but she decided we must not have bought enough!!!  She also got two yards of this one...

It is from Mixmasters Fizz by Robert Kaufman.  Love this red!!

We also went to two other local quilt shops:  Memories by the Yard and Sew Special Quilts.  This is where my Mother's Day gift came in!!!

I am so excited about these!!  They are 1/2-yard cuts of Moda's Chance of Flowers.  I saw them on shop hop and had been waiting to go back and get them.  Most of them were from Memories, but then I picked up 4 of them at Sew Special.

I also got this little fun piece...

There is a fun little shop hop starting on July 1.  It's called the Row by Row Experience 2014.  The shops are each getting these little license plates and will have them for sale.  I think it's too cute!!  I'm really looking forward to collecting more!

So, I really raked it in this week!!!  What do you have to share this week??
