Sunday Stash | 003
I've been doing some stashing lately. And no, it's not very cohesive stashing. Actually, that seems to be how I roll - purchasing whatever speaks to me in a given moment, without necessarily having a project in mind, or more likely, several very different projects in mind. The retailers I shop from must think I'm nuts. Maybe one day I'll order a nicely coordinated bunch of fabrics...maybe.
Last week-end my sister and I attended Quilt X, which is a brand new quilt show co-created by the owners of a couple local-ish quilt shops. There was a nice variety of vendors with a little something for everyone, a small quilt show that featured different interpretations of the same pattern, a series of workshops, and a guest lecturer.
Fabric Spark had a booth at the show, which was quite exciting for me as it's one of my go-to online shops. It was great meeting Daryl and chatting fabric with her. I picked up a few more Anna Maria Horner FQs for that Feather Quilt that I plan to make one day, and a yard of Rashida Coleman-Hale's Tangrams in Indigo. I have no immediate plans for the tangram fabric, but it was too awesome to pass up.
In addition to these fabric purchases, I also picked up bottle of Flatter spray in the most yummy Fig scent (I'm a sucker for anything Fig related - I love those things!), and a copy of Carolyn Friedlander's Tangelo Quilt pattern.
I also managed to stumble across some gems at Len's Mill Store. Yes, that's Melody Millers's Black + White Typewriters, and an FQ bundle of Anna Maria Horner's True Colours in reds/pinks/oranges. For those of you in Southwestern Ontario, you'll understand what a score it was to find these beauties at Len's Mills!
I don't have a plan for those typewriters yet either; fabric that good creates a lot of pressure to use it well, don't you think?
I'm linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
