Sunday Stash: Anna Maria Horner edition

I said I wouldn’t post this weekend (on the day of rest no less!) but I couldn’t resist the Sunday Stash link up at Quiet Play.

This is the really excellent mail I got from Anna Maria Horner this week! Sooo pretty. My main objective was to acquire some pearl cotton 8 for the hand quilting I’d like to do on the appliqué project I blogged about here. (Did you see Sarah Fielke herself commented? Best moment of my week!) 🙂

But then once you’re already paying shipping… you might as well add something from the sale section. I’ve seen people referencing and using voile a lot lately so I was curious to see some. That little stack was only $10! They’re fat quarters but a little bigger than quilting cotton fat quarters because voile comes on 54 inch bolts. I’m going to do some block tests with it and I promise to blog about it. I was thinking about being a complete rebel and making a mini that mixes all sorts of fabrics you’re not supposed to mix and see what happens!

A couple more fun things I bought this week: the Liberty Love book, source of the famous Marcelle Medallion quilt that I desperately would like to try. Here’s a great example: Red Pepper Quilts (she’s a quilt genius). It’s a more challenging quilt (templates! Oh my!) but I think I’m ready…? I’d like to give it a shot anyway. Anyone want to join along? We could do a border per week…

I also got a Kwik Klip that’s supposed to make pin basting easier and a Clover open-side thimble that Sarah Fielke recommends for hand quilting in her free tutorial video.

Ok, see you tomorrow for my last WIP post! (Unless I started something NEW this weekend… I’ll leave that a mystery so you have to come back.)

Would you consider following me by Bloglovin’ or email? I’m great at following back!
