sunday stash



Wow - thank you for all the spiderweb love from last post. You make my heart sing! And have really encouraged me to get my finger pulled out and get a few more finishes underway. It feels so good to finish something and have other people tell me they love it too. Makes it all the more worthwhile.

So thank you, I really appreciate it!

I've been really slack with sunday stash lately. It's not from the lack of stash enhancements, more to do with me being busy with real life stuff and working on the next issue of Fat Quarterly (out July 27th - yikes!) The new additions to the closet shown above are by Laurie Wisbrun for Kaufman fabrics. I wasn't sure whether I'd like them at first, but in real life they are delicious. A perfect mix of colours and so vivid too. I started cutting into the purples right away to make purple blocks for my rainbow quilt and I ::LOVE:: the blocks. Seems I had the perfect fabrics in my stash after all. Result!

(in case you need to go shopping, I bought my stack from Thistle Hill fabrics on etsy)

Love your use of Laurie's fabrics in this line. What is the "fireworks" fabric that you used with it? Also, what is the size of this block?

Katy said...

The block is a whopping 20 inches (finished) and the other fabrics are by Aussie designer Saffron Craig. Hope that helps!
If anyone fancies I'll do a tute on the block, just shout.

That is a great use of Laurie's fabric. I got a little bit of each piece in the line, not quite sure what to do with it. You've given me some ideas, so thanks!

This block is just so great - I can't wait to see your entire quilt made up in rainbow colours. (I also love wee super piggy in your stash photo!!). Lucky you to have some TT's. I'm coveting.
