Sunday Stash

QuiltCon was an opportunity to spread some of the fabric-shopping love and buy from some new-to-me vendors. I picked up some fabric for the Cotton and Steel Mini Swap on Instagram (top right) and some fabric I had generally been eyeing for a while: some half yards of Doe by Carolyn Friedlander, a yard of Essex linen for pouches and bags, some large cuts of Dowry and Honor Roll by Anna Maria Horner (did you know her signature is below the bows??), and some fat quarters of in-general awesome prints that I'll surely use (like those new colors of Joel Dewberry's Herringbones. What.).

These fabrics are from Beyond the Reef, Cloud 9 Fabrics (Tsuru and Koi!!), Island Quilter, and Stitch Lab. I had great conversations in these vendor booths! Amanda gave me a needle minder (thank you - I'm using it already!) and I made that headband at the bottom at the Cotton and Steel booth. Imagine my surprise and pleasure when I discovered you could actually sit at their booth and sew!

Then, there's my current favorite purchase from QuiltCon - an orange peel shirt from Patchwork Threads. I had held off for a while but my wallet jumped out of my purse when I saw this one. Plus, it was a couple of dollars cheaper than online and I didn't have to pay shipping. That's a huge score in my book! The t-shirt is VERY soft and good quality (the colors are amazing - each petal is slightly different, as you can kind of see above), and I can wear it to teach my Orange Peels and Improv class! How perfect is that?! Thanks, Patchwork Threads, you rock!

P.S. I'm not getting compensated to say any of this... I just love these vendors. :)

Linking up to Sunday Stash.
