Sunday Stash #2

In my second Sunday Stash I'm sharing more goodies bought during my wonderful trip to Texas last month for QuiltCon in Austin.

I've been loving Carolyn Friedlander's prints for a while now, and was so happy to add these bits to my stash. From her Botanics and Architextures ranges, I think these will work well together... again with some white... to make a simple and fresh quilt – maybe this is the fabric to try out some partial seamed hexagons!


While standing in line to pay at one of the stalls at QuiltCon, I happened to spot a leaflet about a quilting shop hop around the local area... as if a 4-day show wasn't enough! So much to my husband's delight (!) we went on a mini road trip and found A Quilter's Folly, a lovely bright shop full of beautiful fabrics. Among these I spotted some favourites, ditsy floral feedsack-type prints, and went a little crazy... again!


Having now seen these two collections above toegther, they kind of co-ordinate don't they?! Ahhh, so many ideas, so little time!

I do love these mini florals, and don't only use them in quilting. This is my latest T-T-Teessiders cushion and I think the grey flower looks perfect with the pinky-red lettering and light grey background.

  1. Love the cushion - such perfect blanket stitches! I must confess to having a soft spot for the NE after spending three years at Uni there.
