I'm not someone who normally buys up fabric to build my stash, but sometimes I do get tempted. Last week Craftsy had a mystery box on sale...50 fat quarter for $50. That is a serious steal, as fat quarters are typically $3 each. So I looked back at my finances, saw my quilting spending had been very low thus far this year (because I'm catching up on so many UFOs that I haven't started any projects!) and decided to treat myself!
All of the fat quarters were from Free Spirit Fabrics and were high quality with fun, bright patterns. The only downside was that there were duplicates, so I didn't get 50 distinct fat quarters. I made my boyfriend model some of my favorites.
|I love the big, bold print on this. Not sure what I will do with an FQ size, but the fabric itself sure would make a lovely quilt backing!|
|I love how bright and cheery this one is|
|These remind me of Art Forms of Nature. I love how intricate the design is|
|This one was metallic!|
Now I also had another stash addition...my monthly color FQ bundle from The Fabric Shoppe. This month's color was green.
This month had a few more hits and misses than last month. While there were a bunch that I was head over heels for...
|I LOVE this color scheme!|
|This one brings in so many fun colors|
...there were also a few that I was not so thrilled about. To me these two came across as old fashioned.
|The color scheme is really muted and pastel-y.|
|I think the duckies are cute, but this is not my shade of green. The little patterns remind me of older fabrics.|
