I bought lots of fabric. The "Sew my Stash" project really went out of the window. Oh well! Here we go with some (admittedly, not all) of my purchases:
This year I decided to buy lots of "stash builders". These Honeycomb Dot Reversed by Riley Blake were a must-have!
These are other stash builder fabrics I purchased. Some are older prints, but many are new like the Mini Pearl Bracelets. I love ladybirds, so I had to get two of Tula Pink's new fabrics. I expect I'll be using many of these fabrics in no time at all.
I made my first Cotton + Steel purchases. Their fabrics are amazing, so I had to be good and limit my purchases to my very favourites. I love the Melody Miller picnic range, but was restrained and purchased only four prints. I also bought four fabrics from the black and white range. So cute!
Following my Snowball and Squares quilt I am now drawn to low volume fabrics because I think they are more interesting than plain white. I added lots of low volume to my stash and many of them have text. I think these are going to be interesting additions to my future quilts.
I was still drawn to cute, bold and novelty fabrics. Here is a selection of some of my newbies. Cats figure strongly again, though I also picked out some sea-themed fabrics and I have some notion of making a nautical quilt in the future.
I could not resist some of the scrap bags on sale. I got some great grey, black and low volume fabrics from these and I know they will be used shortly.
This won't be the last time I mention this year's Festival of Quilts. There is much more to report and reflect on. I have some Liberty prints to show you soon, but for now we'll leave it at that.
Enjoy your summer sewing!
