Stash Building

As every quilter knows, you can have too much fabric. But you can also never have enough fabric... especially when designers keep coming out with such awesome stuff! Here's some of what I've added to my stash in the last couple weeks!

Eye Candy :)
"Make Life..." by Sweetwater for Moda. Isn't it gorgeous? I don't know when (or if...) I will pull that ribbon, but it's so pretty sitting up on the shelf :)

"Modern Meadow" by Joel Dewberry, the "Berry" colorway. I really think this may be my favorite fabric collection of all time... I will definitely be ordering more of this- lots more!! It looks AMAZING with Kona's charcoal solid. I'm thinking something really simple to show off the prints would be good for this one!

"Modern Meadow" by Joel Dewberry, the "Pond" colorway. This reminds me of the Finger Lakes region of New York, and I may have to make a quilt that reflects the beauty and wonder of that area- if I can find a pattern that would even come close to doing that :)

I've also added some amazing solids, like Kona charcoal and Moda Bella Solid white and chocolate.

I'm almost done catching up with swaps, then I plan to take a small swapping hiatus (except for my ongoing bees) and work on some of my own projects for a while :) I have dozens of ideas and quilts planned out already... and I need to start actually using some of the fabics I've been buying!


  1. Looks like lots of fun! I can't wait to see what you make with all your wonderful new fabrics! :-)

  2. Beautiful fabrics- they will make lovely projects. Be sure and show pictures.

  3. Re: the purse you may or may not make me: I really like the bottom middle fabric of the berry colorway. :D

  4. I love all these new fabrics!!

  5. Yummy fabric; so, well done! Stash enhancement is so important :)

  6. oooh, i have been trying not to buy...but with lines like this...it is hard to resist. an amazing purchase!

  7. Oh I love the sweet life stack! Gorgeous.
