Sunday stash of shame (and a giveaway)

Not really. I’m just being dramatic. Ok maybe a little shame. 10% shame, 90% happiness.

I warned you last week that I was expecting quite a few packages.

First up, I’ll show you the fabrics I got directly from #thegreatfabricdestash.

These dotty stripes are from Katie Jump Rope, Denyse Schmidt’s classic 2nd collection (after the original Flea Market Fancy). I really wish they would reprint this line. I’m getting obsessed with the idea of collecting it.

This too.

That’s Picnic and Fairground, Denyse’s first-ever line for JoAnn’s. This was out when I first started quilting and a few of the fabrics are featured in my earliest quilts. How I wish I’d known to buy it all!

Continuing our tour-de-Denyse, my other detsash purchase was this Flea Market Fancy.

I like these a lot more than I thought I would. I’m probably the last quilter in the world to acquire these. I think they’ll be pretty easy to use in a wide variety of projects.

Speaking of easy to use, how bout these neons?

Ok, maybe not easy to use. But so cool. They practically glow in the dark. You’ll definitely be seeing these in my next big project. More about that soon!

I got the neons from a cute little Etsy shop (A Vintage Fairytale), along with this little bundle of the old Sew Stitchy line by Aneela Hoey.

And we all knew it was only a matter of time before this bundle fell into my shopping cart:

True Colors by Anna Maria Horner. The colors in this line are amazing in person. Some of them are actually pretty close to the neons! Perhaps they would pair well together in a project. Perhaps…

But my primary intent for my destash proceeds was to acquire a good number of basics. These all came from Westwood Acres, one of my personal favorite fabric shops.

Lots of dots.

Subtle stripes.

And jewels.

I will neither confirm nor deny that there are 2 more destash packages that haven’t arrived yet. You’ll have to come back next week to see.

As part of my hosting duties today I have the honor and privilege of sharing a little stash with you all! To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below telling me what color your stash is most lacking, and I’ll put together a very special bundle just for you.

Extra entry for linking up your stash and/or being a follower. Just leave an extra comment for each. I’ll leave the giveaway open until Wednesday at noon, EST. (And yes, I’m more than happy to ship to our international friends! You guys invented Sunday Stash, didn’t you?)

Now it’s your turn. Anyone else get a huge pile of mail after #thegreatfabricdestash? Show us!

As always, here are the rules:

1. Link up a blog post welcoming any new sewing supplies to your stash.

2. If it is fabric from your existing stash that you’ve showcased before, please use new photos with as much natural light as possible, and provide as many manufacturing details about the fabric.

3. Try to leave a comment on at least two other links. We want this to be a safe space for sewing supply collectors, after all!

4. Grab the button, and proudly proclaim you endorse Sunday Stashing!

A special thank you to Molli for allowing me to host today!

  1. I follow you via Bloglovin. My stash is teeny tiny, nothing even close to one of your picks. I am missing everything but would especially love some reds or greens.

  2. No new fabric for me this week, sigh. I was too slow for the great fabric destash. πŸ˜‰ My stash is currently very much lacking in purple. I think I have one Amy Butler print, but that’s pretty much it.

  3. I’m drooling the most over the dots but also over the stripes too. I see a project featuring mostly dots sometimes in my future maybe. I’d say I’m actually lacking gray prints the most. I want to make a scrappy quilt with some grays but alas I overestimated the number of grays that I have.

  4. Wow! I *was* feeling guilty but strangely feel a lot better now!! Great to see you bought an array of neons, I have the orange, but can’t decide what to do with it….they’re fab. Looking forward to your project. My stash is mainly green, grey and pink so anything else πŸ™‚

  5. Hi. Great stash! I didn’t purchase or put anything up during the greatfabricdestash, but I enjoyed seeing the posts. My stash is missing low-volume prints the most, if that counts as a color, otherwise, purple is second, even though I love the color. I have a good stash of monochromatic, yellow, orange, green and blue! Thanks.

  6. I love your new stash!! I am green with envy… I am fairly new to quilting and I don’t have much of a stash so ant color would l look wonderful in my sewing room. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Secondly, I wanted to sew something the other day for my 4 year old who loves purple and that was when I realized I am really lacking purple!

  8. I envy your Denyse Schmidt stash! I love her fabric collections! As a new quilter I missed out on her older collections and I think that I am also the last quilter to acquire Flea Market Fancy. My small stash is lacking low volume prints and reds. Thank you for sharing your talent!
