Sunday Stash

A Summer of travel means a lot of Stash Enhancement! 

Here are some of the goodies I brought back from my trip to Idaho last month.

One shop I don't get to visit often is the Sun Valley Fabric Granary. It's not the largest shop in Idaho, but I think their selection is the best curated! Here's a view inside the shop:

 Doesn't this just make your fingers itch to get inside this shop?

I picked up this "Alation" kit just because I liked Bonnie Christine's "Winged" fabric collection for Art Gallery. I failed to note it requires using quilter's grid interfacing, so the odds of it actually being made are not great. Maybe I'll try it without the interfacing method.

Have you hear about "double gauze" fabric? It is yummy soft, and really double-layered. This pretty cut is going to become a summer top -- probably Amy Barickman's Asymmetrical Tunic from  Indygo Essentials.

Here's a closeup showing both layers:

You know I'm a "cat person," so I couldn't/didn't resist this Cotton  Steel panel "A Tiny Piece of Portugal" by Sarah Watts, plus the companion print. Someone will love the wall hanging it will make!

Anna Maria Horner is one of my favorite designers -- and her "Loominous" collection is among her best. I must love it, because when I got this pretty fuchsia piece home, I realized I have the same print in turquoise! 

Of course, there's more to show -- come back next Sunday to see!

  1. Retail therapy is good for the soul...cute cat fabric.

  2. I love the fabrics, haven't seen any of this in MO quilt stores, where I live. Yummy! I am new here and have a question, I saw your tutorial for Susie's magic binding, and was intrigued with the title 52 quilts in 52 weeks, so here I am. But, how do I get to your beginning posts so how can I read your blog from the start instead of backwards, thanks for your response.

Thanks for taking your time to comment. If I don't answer in an email, it's because you're a no-reply commenter and I can't find you!
