Sunday Stash #7

Fortunately I don't have a crazy iron-bursting-into-flames story like Molli to share, just some fabric that I picked up JoAnn's.  Anyone else feel that the remnant section is a major danger zone?!  It's so easy to pick something up with the idea of "Oh, I'm sure this will come in handy this at some point."  Apparently I need to work on my willpower.
I thought these Santas were cute and different.  Kind of old school illustrations, you know?  I used up a bunch of my Christmas fabric in the quilt for my parents, so clearly I needed to replenish my stash.  And I do want to make a tree skirt for next year, so there you go.  A necessary purchase.
The white fabric has these little silver metallic dots on it, and I think it will be great for a bag or pouch lining.  I used a similar grey fabric with a darker grey dot to bind Sofia's baby quilt.  The floral is from the Denyse Schmidt collection for JoAnn's, so clearly I had to get that.  It may actually get put on the back of my Starburst Quilt Along quilt, although I'm not sure how the orange will work.  We'll have to see.
And finally, some flannel.  I like making "taggie" blankies and squishy blocks (also with "taggies!") as new baby presents, so again, these will be quite handy.  In case you can't quite tell the aqua is hedgehogs and the bicycles are actually on a navy background.  Cute, huh?

Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash, and reminding everyone to be careful ironing!


  1. I've given up justifying why I buy each piece of fabric. I buy fabric because I like the fabric. I suppose I should have more willpower. Love that bicycle fabric!

  2. Exactly what Pam said, just buy what you like, fabric needs no justification! I actually love shopping the sale bins because it forces you to narrow your search (and you can buy twice as much!). I find shopping the entire store--or online website--a bit overwhelming. Thanks so much for linking up, and yes, watch out for those flaming irons!
