Sunday Stash

I know, I'm supposed to calm it down on the Sunday Stash posts... especially since I just held a big destash on Instagram (which was very successful - there's still some available, too!). However, I saw this bundle of Loominous during Sew Me A Song's bundle sale and I dived in head first. I've been a huge fan of Anna Maria Horner's fabric for a while, but I just wasn't sure about Loominous until I saw it as a stack in Becca's shop.


Loominous is a set of yarn dyed cottons that feels thinner than regular quilting cotton. The fabrics have a gorgeous drape and several of them are metallic. I want to make a quilt out of just them!

These beauties have had me thinking all week. First, I thought I'd sew them together improvisationally in a color cascade, but I think they are begging for some patchwork. I thought maybe another Modern Maples will do the trick (I love making MMs). Maybe the lighter colored pieces could be the backgrounds. Thoughts? Help me make something lovely! Because these are begging to be used.

Coming this week: the photographs of two finished quilts (probably a blog post for just one of them - the selvage quilt!!), a visit to one of my LQS's (Rock Paper Scissors), a special announcement on Wednesday, and WE'RE MOVING. I can't wait to show you my new sewing room.

Linking up to Sunday Stash.

  1. I don't think I could pass up Loominous if I came across it too!

  2. I have some Loominous winging its way to me, I have some shot cottons which I hope to combine with them. My first thought is improv piecing as I know from previous experience with shot cottons that they need careful handling (pressing with lots of starch) as they do have a tendency to stretch a bit but nothing that can't be worked with. A combination of improv and patchwork would look great together.

  4. I love Loominous too. I bound a quilt in some but I also have big plans for some summer frocks. The colours are just divine. You should also check out the Loominous quilt Jodi at Tales of Cloth made. Stunning. I think whatever you make with these it will be lovely
