Then of course the dreaded Spotlight fat quarter sale (who can say no for $1 a fat quarter) could not be ignored. (I apologise for the slightly dodgy photos but it was a very dark, rainy day here when I took these!)
I have a few nice pieces of Notting Hill lurking in my stash waiting for their time to shine:
so I picked up some goodies which I thought would play nicely with them. I'm thinking of joining in with the Star Surround quiltalong at Happy Quilting and I think these might be just the thing!
These Cuzco Exotic Garden goodies are just gorgeous:
I'm sure you noticed the odd one out in my first photo there in my grab for fabric? Its a batik and it made it in simply because it has birds on it. My husband is a finch lover and there is not a lot of fabric around with finches on it. Now this bird is not strictly speaking a finch (in fact it looks more like a spoggie*) but it looks a like a small bird (rather than a large parrot as most fabric seems to favour) so that was good enough for me! I don't know what I'll do with it but for now owning it is enough, its time will eventually come.
* sparrow in non-slang vernacular!
The fat quarters I also selected with the plan of building blenders in my stash.
I added a couple of nice greys,
a bit of black and white
and I know you noticed that delightful (!) flag fabric lurking there.
Why you ask? This one has a purpose - I'm going to make a passport holder (or possibly two) as a gift in the near future and this one just screamed passport to me. I'm thinking it may feature on the inside, perhaps on a pocket but either way it just seemed to fit!
Oh and not to forget the Prints Charming! You might have noticed I really like this one, given I bought four of the same!
Still need to stock up on solid black as I used up what I had stashed for another project but I didn't think of that when I was at Spotlight did I? Next time (won't that make an enthralling Sunday Stash post)!
Thanks for visiting today!
