Sunday Stash #2

Happy Sunday!

I don't do a lot of ordering online, but StashModernFabrics was having a sale on Free Spirit fabrics and a couple of bundles caught me eye!  Stash is a great shop and the owner, Beth, is really nice.  She also helped me pull together a custom bundle once before - I sent her the pattern I wanted to do and the fabric requirements and she picked a great assortment of prints for me.  I get so nervous about trying to find coordinating colors off a computer screen, so I was very appreciative of Beth's willingness to help!  This time, though, I went for a couple of designer FQ bundles.

This bundle is the Afternoon Garden colorway (12 FQ) from Joel Dewberry's Bungalow line.  I love the bright colors - fuchsia, chartreuse and teal with a little bit of softer pink.  I think I'll make something for myself from this one!  I have the Swoon pattern somewhere around here, or maybe one of Melissa's (from Happy Quilting) star-themed quilt alongs?

And this bundle is the Malachite colorway (13 FQ) from Denyse Schmidt's Florence line.  I liked these colors (various shades of greens, blues and black) because it's a little more man-friendly and I have at least one wedding coming up in the next year.  I did one wedding quilt in her Chicopee line previously, so this would be a nice continuation of that tradition.

And last but not least, a little bit of Ed Emberley from the Happy Drawing, Too collection.  I had an Ed Emberley book as a kid that I thought was fun (anyone else remember the thumb print drawings??) and thought about buying a bundle when this line first came out but didn't really have any project in mind for it.  This time, though, sentiment won out and I bought a single half yard of the doggies :)  It's always good to have some good boy-friendly fabric on hand, right??

Well, that's enough shopping for me for a while!  Although, my LQS, Among Friends Quilt Shop, is having a sale-abration for their 10th anniversary next week and I might have to go check it out...

Linking with Lisa in Port Hope for Sunday Stash!


  1. Stopping by from the Sunday Stash link up...Love your fabrics! Especially the Florence...and then you went and mentioned Chicopee, so had to go check out quilt (which I LOVE!) because my Sunday Stash post is all about Chicopee with a little Florence thrown in too! 8-)

  2. the doggie fabric is adorable, and I agree it is hard to stash boy-friendly fabrics. I don't know Ed Emberley--I'll have to look him up.

  3. Beautiful bundles, I especially love that DS line. Not familiar with Ed Emberly, but that looks really cute:-0

  4. Oh, the swoon pattern would be super for the Bungalow prints! Thanks for linking up to Sunday Stash!
