One of the reasons my stash has grown so much is because I love buying "helpful" fabrics (coined by Rachel of Stitched in Color). These are simple, one color, two color, or tone-on-tone fabrics. As much as I love multi-colored fabrics, I love combining fabric from all over more - and that doesn't usually work well with lots and lots of multi-colored fabrics.
Right now I'm restricting myself only to those I'm always on the lookout for: helpful, modern red fabric (hard for me to find ones I like) and purples (because PURPLE, guys. PURPLE). I have never bought Tula Pink fabric (really! I'm not a huge fan of animals on fabric) but these ladybugs and owls more than fit my red and purple test (and I LOVE THEM). Also, that knit fabric (Maze Blues from Imprint by Katarina Roccella)? I don't know how it snuck into my bag, but I'm glad it did, because I could use a cute skirt (I have a weakness for buying garment fabric, too...).
I also bought all the fat quarters PQW had of that beautiful Doe print (five, to be exact) because I need them for my rainbow selvage bookcase quilt. Then, since I'm taking the Meadow Quilt class with Lizzy House next weekend (!) I had to buy background fabrics and petal fabric (you'll have to tune in to my upcoming post about the workshop to see how I use them - again, PURPLE!). Below is my color palette for the rest of the quilt (all from the stash, thank you very much!). I told you I like helpful fabrics. :) P.S. If you're anywhere near Central New Jersey you should sign up for our workshop!
Okay, so hopefully I won't have too many more Sunday Stashes this year. Or will I? ;)
