Sunday Stash #4

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  Or, for any international readers, a good weekend :)

Remember when I went a little crazy and ordered a bunch of fabric from StashModernFabric?  I had fallen in love with the Afternoon Garden colorway from Joel Dewberry's Bungalow line and I decided to (finally get on the bandwagon) and make a Swoon quilt with it.  The only "problem" was that Swoon requires 18 FQ, and my bundle only had 12.  What's a girl to do but browse the Internets for more fabric to buy??

And low and behold, Beth at Stash had a bundle of coordinating solids!  And there were 6 FQ in the bundle!  And 12 + 6 = 18!  Yay!  Beth was also having a sale on Essex linen, which I'd never worked with but wanted to try.  I thought I'd try and go darker for the background, since one of the solids in the bundle was cream-colored, but really wasn't sure what to go with.  I originally thought I'd try Denim, but after some back and forth with Beth decided to go with Indigo instead (I told you she was helpful!).

Can't wait to get started on this one!  I've already decided on my fabric pairs!

Linking up with Sunday Stash with the fabulous Molli Sparkles!


  1. Oh... that should be gorgeous! Love the colours in this collection, and they should be great with that Essex linen.

  2. That is going to be one gorgeous Swoon quilt!! Lovely choices :)

  3. Girl, I love those colours together -- turquoise, purple, and lime....great, now I have to go make a fabric pull. Love your idea of the darker background, white quilts are gorgeous but not so practical

  4. I can see that this is going to be exquisite! I've been dying to try the essex linen too, so I'm eager to see how it works out for you! Thanks for linking up and to many more in 2014!
