Raiding my stash

This past weekend, I finished cutting the remaining two blocks (and made one of those) from my 12 Days of Christmas BOM.  Additionally, I cut the pieces from the finishing kit including lattice strips and parts for wonky stars.

The kits from Fat Quarter Shop are very generous so I actually have quite a bit of leftover fabric pieces.  I had also purchased a layer cake of the fabric so have some number of squares that I've not used.  I was contemplating using this fabric scraps for the Jacob's Ladder quilt-along sponsored by my blog friend the Empress of the Universe.  However, as much as I love the fabric, I decided to package it up nicely and store it away perhaps until next year.  Almost too much of a good thing at this point.

Instead, I found this fabric in my stash!

I purchased these when my local quilt store went out of business and got the fabric at 50% off.

  • The tan is  Luna Notte by 3 sisters for Moda.- 1 yard.
  • The red is Rouenneries by French General for Moda - 2 yards
  • The green is Rue Saint Germain by Robyn Pandolph for RJR - 2 yards.

I will make this as a 2 color quilt with the red and tan.  (I found another yard of the tan online).  (I didn't actually start cutting the fabric - just enjoyed looking at it.)

(Boy, do I miss my local store.  The woman that ran it had wonderful taste.  Three different lines and these fabrics will look beautiful together. When I buy on-line - which is what I do now - I tend to keep a project within a particular line or designer because I can not really match colors on line.)

Happy Stitching!


  1. What lovely fabrics.... and they were just sitting in your stash? Wow! A very nice selection... looking forward to seeing your first block!

    One of the two LQS went out of business a couple of years ago... of course, it was the one where all the fabrics they carried were to my taste. The remaining LQS carries a lot of contemporary fabrics, which I like... but just not as much. I can go into the remaining LQS and come out with just what I went in to get. Could never do that at the one that closed...

  2. We really cannot afford to loose any more quilt shops - none are real convenient to me - which is probably good. Which online stores do you frequent. I always look for sales. Judy C
