I love fabric. That's no secret. So Fiona at Finding Fifth has inspired me to follow her with the weekly Sunday Stash post.
For the past two weeks, my local quilting store, Finchs Nest, has had a big sale. 30% off all fabric, 20% off all quilt kits, 50% off all Christmas things and some other great discounts on remnants. I always look forward to these sales because when I have quilts planned I can usually pick up what I need at the discounted price. This was the case this time with my train quilt, that will be a Christmas gift for my stepbrother. I got some 2.4m wide backing and the binding. I will post about this quilt, I just need to get some good photos of the completed top.
I also have recently gone through my stash and sorted all my fabric into colours. It became apparent that I am significantly lacking in yellow and orange fabrics. This is probably because they are my two least favourite colours. But because I am planning to make some scrappy quilts from the Scrap Republic book, I thought that I had better invest in a few more prints. Any excuse to buy more fabric right? ;-)
So I picked up these, not all are yellow and orange but it was on sale so I just had to get some of those ones that I have had my eye on....
I also got this one from the remnant basket, and it turns out that it's actually a Christmas print so I got it for half price. $5.00 for 70cm. Bargain.
Yesterday I won an auction on ebay for 2.5m of Amy Butlers Heirloom/Blue Sky from her Lark range for $27.50 including postage. That works out to be $11.00/m! I love Amy Butler fabrics, particularly this range and her Love range, so it will definately be put to good use!
Hope you have had a nice weekend x
