Sunday Stash 8/2/14

In case anyone was wondering, I've been on a bit of a vacation.  I took a week off work for my nephew's baptism and my mom and daughter and I went on a shop hop, catching a bunch of shops in the Row by Row Experience.  I have so much to show yall!!  But it's gonna take a few weeks to get them all in.  So here's the first installment.

Starting off with this Cotton & Steel fabric.  I'm participating in a fat/eighth swap of Cotton & Steel over at Sew at Home Mummy.  Erin is a terrific swap hostess and if you haven't joined in yet, the next round starts tomorrow.  You'll love it!!

This fantastic fat quarter pack I picked up at the Fat Quarter Shop's flash sale.  It was like $22 for the pack.  OMG!  I so love it.  It is called Return to Atlantis by Jason Yenter.  I found out that he is my newest favorite designer as I picked up a lot of his fabrics on this last shop hop last week.  I have definite plans for these.

I also found a few yards of it on sale during my travels the last week.  Next I snapped a few pics of just a little bit of what I picked up this week.  I adore these fat quarters.  From a distance, they look just like any other houndstooth pattern.  But close up....Texas.

This is my favorite find from the hop.  I love this line and cannot wait for it to hit the stores.  I want a fat quarter stack at least.

This shows my take over the last week.  Mom may have spoiled me a bit for my birthday.  Maybe just a little.  But now you see why it will take a while to show you everything!

Hope everyone had a great week while I was gone!  Trying to play catch up now and can't wait to really show everyone all of my finds.  Have a terrific week!

Sunday Stash & An Update on the Traveling Stash Box

Another Sunday and I'm happy to say I have fabric to report this week!  First up is the fabric I chose to keep from the Travelling Stash Box.  There are half-yard cuts of each of these awesome prints...

And I kept these two fat quarters...

While we're on the subject of the Travelling Stash Box, let me give you an update.  I was supposed to draw the name of the winner to receive this box yesterday.  But I had been holding off until I got a response from the organizer of the box.  You see, when I received it last week, every reeked of cigarette smoke.  I wanted an opinion from them on what I should do about it.  I could wash everything but the pre-cuts, but I wasn't sure if that was the best bet.  The organizer wants to retire the box, have me send it back to them, and then we are going to start a new box in September.  I will take the names of those who entered into it and add them to whoever signs up when the box is ready to go and we'll go from there.  I'm sorry for the hold up, but I want everyone to have a chance a good quality fabric without having any issues.

Now on to the rest of Sunday Stash.  The nice part about taking my mom fabric shopping is that she loves to buy fabric, and I do mean loves to buy fabric, but she hates to sew.  I get to hint around at what I like when we shop.  She usually takes things home with her to fondle for a few months but then they always get sent home with me to play with.  The rest of today's fabric are her purchases from last month's shop hop.  First up is three yards of this lovely red....

And I love these!!!  I took mom over and showed her these specifically hoping she'd buy them so I could play.  Half a yard each...

And a few yards of this lovely tan neutral...

We were specifically looking for teals on this trip.  There are a yard of each of these...

Mom fell in love with these.  A yard each of the blue and red and three yards of the cream/tan.

Now I am a sucker for kids and baseball so this panel was a no-brainer.  Mom bought it (she's as bad as I am) and I got to bring it home tonight.

And the last two blocks of this panel...

So stinking cute!  And one more plate to add to my collection this week from the Row by Row Experience.

Can't wait to dig in and start playing!  Do y'all have anything fun to share this week?

Design Wall Monday

Hey y'all!  I've been busy testing a mystery quilt for Persimmon Quilts.  She runs free mysteries to benefit QOV.  So since I can't show you my design wall, I thought I'd share the fabrics I'm using.

On the left we have Stonehenge by Northcott, then is Marble Swirls by Moda.  Next up is a fabric from a new Christmas line by Quilting Treasures (couldn't find a name on it), and lastly is Tooled Leather by Moda.  I can't wait to be able to show you the finished project.

Also, don't forget to stop by my post from yesterday and leave a comment for a chance to get the Traveling Stash Box!!  There are some fun fabrics, notions, and patterns in there that you'll love!!

Hope y'all have a great, productive week!
