This is What Falling Off the Wagon Looks like or Sunday Stash

Yep, either these fell off the back of a truck or I fell off the wagon. See, I'm not supposed to be buying fabric. Who says? Well me, my mom and Making Rebecca Lynne at the Fabriholics Anonymous Group on Flickr.

What had happened was... :) I was testing a quilt pattern for Blossom Heart Quilts and I started pulling fabrics. I kept pulling out these really minty aquas. It looked like I had almost enough to not repeat any fabrics. Almost. So the next time I happened to be in front of the fabric store I parked and went and got some, just two. It's actually a little hard to find very minty aquas. Then since I'm making a cream and red block for myself for the Stash Fabulous Bee I probably needed some more creams.

Low volume and creams are good blenders right? And this one is a Christmas fabric so it was on super sale. And it has a metallic shimmer.

Mmm, gold. So here they are, my beautiful walk of fabri-shame and stash guilt. Know why? I ended up having enough minty aqua already in my stash for there to be no repeats. Now I have extra aqua for no good reason. Except maybe scraps and goodies for swaps.

The cream crosshatch I sent off for background fabric for the Stash Fab Bee and the text/sew fabric I've been using as background on my pattern test animal blocks for Juliet at Tartankiwi (also on major sale). So, very necessary that :) And they do all look nice together.

Happy Stash and Sunday to You! Linking up to Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash.


  1. Those are very cute fabric finds, I love the aquas you got.

  2. Not only did you fall off the wagon but now you are an enabler. :-). I had to go and find that crewel embroidery fabric and add it to my stash. It should be at my door later this week.

  3. I totally fell off the fabric fast wagon this month too -- at least you got pretty things? (I love those aquas especially!)

  4. Tut tut, it's hard though isn't it? I bought some black Kona so I could finish a quilt top but I decided that was justifiable...

  5. Oh No you fell of the wagon, but great fabric buying. love the low volumes and I am also low on some minty aquas.

  6. well if one of them was on Sale, you were saving yourself money, so the whole purchase doesn't count ;0)

  7. Those are just gorgeous! Must have fallen off a truck :)

  8. Ooo, very pretty! You know how we are supposed to be using fabric from our stashes for the bee? I found I'm buying more fabric because I don't have the fabric that's quite right! Beautiful fabrics!
