MCM #8 – Stash Building

During the past two weeks our family has had to deal with some unexpected challenges and I found myself mostly unplugging from social media. While I haven’t been posting, I have been busy in my sewing room and have lots to share with you over the next few days. I want to say thanks to everyone for understanding that I needed to step away for a little while, and for your support. I really appreciate you!!

One of the items on my To Do list for 2015 was to join an online group such as a bee or swap. I’m so happy I was able to join a bee hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts. However, after I signed up and we started making our first blocks, I realized my stash is probably not big enough to make all the blocks this year strictly from my stash as we are suppose to do. What’s a girl to do? Β Answer: Buy more fabric! πŸ™‚

Fat Quarter Bundle FWFS Sea Glass

I started by ordering a Sea Glass fat quarter bundle from FWFS and was so excited when it arrived. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve had a thing for blue/green/teal/aqua. (Wait until you see Anthony’s quilt!)

I can’t get enough of these prints!

Fat Quarter Bundle Sea Glass

Included in the bundle were: (clockwise from top)

  • Stitched Squares Emerald – Michael Miller
  • Field Day Prairie Park Blue – Blend
  • Primrose Garden Dot Aqua – Riley Blake
  • Mariposa Damask Turquoise – Windham
  • Garden Pindo Meadow – Michael Miller
  • Stitched Squares Green – Michael MIller
  • Treasure Map Crosshatch Blue – Riley Blake
  • Mini Confetti Dots Blue – Dear Stella

Sea Glass Fat Quarter Favorites

I think these are my two favorites. I definitely see some yardage of the Crosshatch Blue in my future!

Fort Worth Fabric Studio offers a specially curated bundle of fabrics every Friday, available in fat quarters or half yard cuts. For me, it’s a great way to build my stash and in colors I don’t have (or don’t have enough of). Nope, this isn’t an advertisement for FWFS but it could be! I really like their customer service and appreciate the fast shipping.

I ordered last week’s Friday bundle and can’t wait for it to get here.Β  It’s called Citrus – think juicy oranges and limes – yum! πŸ™‚

These fabrics are my crush for this week – they are so yummy! I would love to see what you are excited about and what you are working on this week. You can link up any blog post or Instagram pic – here’s how:

About Beth

I’m a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get “licking the spoon” mixed up with “licking the fabric”!!

    Those are some yummy fabrics. You’ll have to use a few if your bee quilt needs to be rounded out.

  4. I am glad to hear that sewing / quilting has been a good outlet for you. You and your family continue to be in my thoughts, Beth. I really look forward to seeing what you have been up to! πŸ™‚
