A recent trip to my favorite quilt shop had me coming back to this Patty Young Andalucia print again and again. A bit bold for me, but I was drawn to those wonderful colors of aqua, lime and hot pink. Naturally, a few coordinating prints were necessary. The bottom three are from the same collection, pink Ta Dot, Michael Miller, another Michael Miller geometric, an unidentified pink stripe that will make a great binding.
When I was getting the fabric cut, the store associate asked me what I was going to make with them. "I don't know yet," I replied. She looked at me like I was nuts. Clearly she hasn't worked there long. If I knew what I was going to do with the fabric when I bought it, that would eliminate 75% of my purchases!
A also picked up some good basics.
Beloved polka dots, Quilt Blocks in gray by Moda and
a Sandy Klop fun pezzy print.
Besides fabric stashing, I have a bit of a book obsession. You may wonder why when there is so much available on the internet, but I love to hold a book, turn the pages, display a nice stack on my bedside table...
These are three lovely new additions to my sewing book family.
Pillow Pop has some amazing modern quilted pillow designs by well known bloggers.
Modern Designs for Classic Quilts is a beautiful book, combining my favorite things - traditional
quilt designs and modern, fresh fabrics.
I am in love with the Japanese style of simple patchwork and Sweet and Simple Patchwork Gift doesn't disappoint. The projects are designed for hand piecing, but can easily be adapted to the sewing machine.
Thanks for letting me share my stash - linking up today with Fiona at Finding Fifth.
