Saturday Stash - St. Ives

At last, my very own stash of Sarah Fielke's St. Ives collection.  I bought her From Little Things collection at the Cosmic Cow in Lincoln, Nebraska about a year and a half ago.  As soon as I heard about her new designs, I started stalking etsy shops and every online fabric seller.  I found the complete fat quarter stack at superbuzzy in Ventura, California.

The collection comes in four colorways:

Blue -- the solid is Moda's Bella Solids in Amelia Blue.

Pink -- the solid is Kauffman's Kona Cotton in Eggplant.

Cherry -- a bright, clear red, pink and yellow.  And Gray -- with a wonderful cotton-candy pink.  There are two extra prints that complement all the colorways.  These fabrics have a lovely, soft hand.  They would be excellent for garments or a summery scarf.

I have been eyeing Sarah's Made in Cherry pattern, trying to decide which colorway to use.  Surprisingly, I think I like the blue/yellow/green colors the best.


But for now, I'm just leaving all the fat quarters on my cutting table to admire and enjoy.

Finish it up Friday -- Quilt #17

I don't know why it feels like I haven't finished a quilt in forever.  I finished three tops just last week!

Here is my February "Another Year of Schnibbles" quilt.  ISTH stands for "Insert Snappy Title Here."  This is the 17th quilt top I've made this year.

I used my favorite Heather Bailey "Nicey Jane" fabrics. The colors are actually more subtle than show in the photo -- evening is approaching, so the light is fading.

NEXT MONTH I swear I will get my Schnibbles quilt finished in time to enter the "Another Year of Schnibbles" parade at Pink Pincushion!
