Sunday Stash

Since my fabric-buying splurge at Marden's in July, I've been going through my fabric stash (both using and pulling to destash - more on that at the bottom of this post). It makes me so happy to actually use the fabrics I love. Wait until I show you the back of my Meadow quilt, which is now basted and ready to be quilted (probably not for a while though - I'm still scheming about quilting motifs).

Anyway, I'm often blessed with the generosity of quilty friends, and I'd like to thank them publicly. Within the last month, I came home with some lovely things. The large scrap of Anna Maria Horner voile (long out of print) is from my guild friend Janneke @jannekenl. She saw me working with the cotton version of that print at one of our sewing days (sewcials!), and brought in the voile version. She said she didn't need it and asked if I did - why yes, I actually do keep a nice pile of scrap voile for future projects! Thank you, Janneke. Also, the book is from our guild freebie table. I've been really into handwork lately and I'm eager to dive into this book from several years ago.

The fabric on the right is from my LQS, Pennington Quilt Works, where we have our guild meetings. I buy something almost every time I'm there. I've already cut into all of them except those adorable Cotton + Steel blueberries! The utensil print is also C + S, the purple batik is one of the new Me+You fabrics from Hoffman Fabrics, and the solid is from Free Spirit.

When I visited Liz @beadqueene last weekend, we agreed to trade fabrics (and wow, is her stash something to behold!). The purple birds from Waterfront Park by Violet Craft are one of my "unicorn" fabrics - I've used bits and pieces and only have a scrap left. She gave me a whole fat quarter (!!), a large scrap of that navy and pink chain that I was inevitably drawn to (no selvage), and a FQ of one of the Mod Corsage prints from Anna Maria Horner's new line. I really want to buy the whole line, but I'm going to try and wait until my birthday in December. I'llmake some room to house it in the meantime... I love those fabrics so much! It's my favorite fabric line she's come out with in a few years.

Liz was also binding her huge x-plus quilt, and she was happy to throw in some of her binding scraps (another Cotton + Steel print). Scrappy binding is one of my favorite things. I already sent a little package off to her with a couple of surprises. Thanks, Liz!

If you'd like to get in on my fabric destash, I'll start posting items on Thursday morning EST (9/1) on the Instagram account @quiltyhabit_destash. Lots of scrap packs, fat quarters, some large solid cuts, Cotton+Steel, Anna Maria Horner - this isn't even all of it. Just stuff that I want a better home for! Fair prices, I promise. The rules will be posted soon! I'll only be shipping out to US addresses (sorry, international friends). I have a couple of "freebies" (you pay shipping only), too!

Linking up to Sunday Stash.


  1. I love that book! I've been doing fabric swaps too, quilty friends are the best! Enjoy your new fabrics :)

  2. Swapping fabric with friends can be the perfect way to get just what you need sometimes. And how awesome to get more of your unicorn print!!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
