Christmas Cash funds Fabric Stash

This weekend I spent some of my Christmas Cash, which was in the form of JoAnn’s Fabric gift cards, on some fabric that I felt was necessary to fill out some fabric choices for a couple of upcoming block of the month projects.

Okay, I could have bought a cool new iron or some other necessary supplies. I sure didn’t need any more fabric especially based on my last post. Here’s where I was wrong. I have been craving some sort of text print to use for low volume backgrounds. I found a beige on ivory and a white on black. My mom talked me into the white/black one. Her budget-conscious wing-man skills need some work. :-). Anyway, I didn’t have a really cool background or a lower volume greenish fabric to use with the Joel Dewberry Notting Hill fat quarters that I received in the nice big Free Spirit mystery box. The others are fillers for fabric types/styles that I felt would be well used.
I’m going to use the Notting Hill color story for the 2014 Sugar Block Club. This picture is just a sample of what I have pulled to use. There is a bit of sparkle on the swirly ivory print that I think will look great with the Notting Hill prints. I also pulled some darker olive greens.

I’m also going to start the Lucky Stars Block of the Month paper pieced stars. They are just gorgeous. For that BOM, I am thinking about using this color grouping.

The maroonish floral fabric is an old one so I am not quite sure where I got it but that was my inspiration fabric for this project. The two shimmery ones are Fairy Frost by Michael Miller. I swear I’m done with stash building for a while. I can’t promise (I’m still looking for that perfect text print that I just have to have) but I will try.

  1. I’ll look forward to seeing your Sugar BOM blocks! I have been buying so many blenders lately I am struggling to find “statement” fabrics in my stash, I like the combination you have put together for the lucky stars BOM.

  2. What beautiful fabric! I have some Fairy Frost lying around and I love the shimmer it adds.

  3. beautiful fabric pulls! I’m like your mom- I’m a fabric enabler all the way, haha!

    Thanks for linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday!
