Sunday Stash, Supersized Edition

Overall last year I was really good about buying fabric. Not a ton came into the house. Blenders, lots of blenders. And some other tasty treats, of course. But my resolve has been weak as of late. I blame Tula Pink and her awesome new Elizabeth line. Before it was even released, I placed a preorder through QuiltHome. They had a fab discount… and I was certain I bought all the pieces I wanted.

It arrived, and I loved it. And I wanted more. Way more. But of course, the discount coupon code was expired by then… What’s a girl to do?

Answer: check out the LQS going out of business sale. This particular store was lovely, and carried a great selection of modern fabrics, but their prices were at the higher end of the range, and that kept me from going too often. But when the closing sale got to 40% off everything (last week) I couldn’t resist. The Aurifil was totally cleared out, and the fabric was close behind, but I managed to find a few treasures.

They had quite a few Tulas from Moonshine and Foxfield left. And even an Acacia. And some good blenders.

But by now my fabric willpower was shot to hell. So when the Equilter sale email popped up in my inbox, I couldn’t resist it.

In my defense, this is only half of what I originally had in my cart. Equilter is in Boulder, just up the highway from us- so I should have had this practically overnight- but they didn’t ship it for a whole week. THEN I got it practically overnight. This is all novelties, something I do don’t need. But the glasses in yellow? I have some in pink but needed, yes needed, more. And the space text purple is for Annie. The awesome Alexander Henry sewing theme print is one I’ve been eyeing for ages. 3 deer head prints, yum. And the piece de resistance, the kittens- with yarn!

Meanwhile, I went looking for more Elizabeth online. Hawthorne threads had it all, and at a great price, and some other Tula pieces I wanted.

And just in case you thought that wasn’t enough, I bought an Allison Glass FQ bundle from Massdrop.

More blenders! My first Massdrop experience was great. I didn’t commit to buy unless the lowest price was unlocked- and it was a good price that included shipping. The shipping was fast, too- I had these FQs in my hands very quickly. If you haven’t checked out Massdrop yet, it might be worth it. If you sign up and eventually make a purchase through my link, I met get a cool swag box. The prices range from great to not really better than you might find elsewhere, so it’s worth shopping around before you commit.

Finally, I have a sweet prize that I kept forgetting to photograph. I won it from Blossom Heart Quilts and the Fat Quarter Shop a while back (um, in November last year)- a fat eighth bundle of Moda Grunge Basics.

Aren’t they pretty colors?

Phew. That’s a lot of fabric. Probably time to go on a fabric diet again…

  1. I think you made up for being good! 🙂

    • In my favor- it was almost all on clearance- except for the newer Tulas… Much was only $5ish per yard!

    Fun fabrics…it will be great to see what you do with them

  4. I love fabric only posts because it’s so interesting to learn what other people really love and see good pictures instead of the digitized images! You made some great choices. The funny thing with Tula fabrics is that they kind of need to grow on me, just as a collection is really starting to disappear in availability- I panic and usually find a bundle or the prints I’ve finally realized I “have” to have. She really is a unique artist and I can’t wait to see what you do with Elizabeth.

    • Funny, that exact same thing happens to me with every Tula line! At first, I just want the main prints. And then I start to covet them all, usually when it’s too late. That is exactly why I bought so much Elizabeth- to prevent that panic later. Plus, I really do love this line… -Sam
