Sunday Stash (Christmas Edition!!!)

As its 5 months today until Christmas day I thought I would show my festive stash and start thinking what I am going to do with it.  Firstly some Fat Quareters of Be Merry for Riley Blake Designs.  I am thinking of a throw for my lounge to use at Christmas with these and possibly using them for my month in Fresh Modern Bee 2

Christmas gift bags with these reds and greens

Yummy Tilda (to stash and look at and fold and stroke!)

Figgy Pudding - I have a Jelly Roll of this too but not sure what to do with it yet.

Authentic Quilt top finished

Progress on my brother's 30th Birthday Quilt - shown on a King size bed but quilt will be double bed size when finished.

It was really poor light when I took these.  I may be absent from the blog for a bit - I am away with work and any spare time I do have will be spent quilting this before my deadline of 30th July eek!

Sewing Catch - up

Oops real life really is getting in the way of sewing at the moment.  I have done something productive however, sorting my scraps and making them into 9 patches before they overspill out of the ever larger Ikea basket.

And manically sewing and trying to finish these blocks for my brother's 30th birthday quilt (his birthday is 23 July but luckily for me I won't see him until 30 July!)

I've had some really great post arrive in the last week or so.  First this gorgeous mini quilt from Manuela as part of the Modify Tradition swap.

Next was my package from Misfit in Toyland as part of the A Little Fabric A Little Chocolate swap on Flickr. Lovely fabrics and ribbons (especially the Scotty Dogs!).

And finally I discovered with great exitement that Seamstar had some Hushabye.  I fell in love with this design when I started quilting but was late to the party and its out of stock in a lot of places.  I have gradually being buying it where I see it (usually in the US) so I was really excited to find it hear in the UK.  So I ordered a metre of each design they had.

I couldn't resist a FQ of this lovely design too.  The fabrics comes beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with ribbon.

And I was eligible for free postage and this lovely mini bundle of fabric and ribbon (which includes Tanya Whelan's Dolce, another of my favourite ranges).

Sunday Stash

Limited edition Liberty Prints purchased at my trip to the Quilt Exhibition at the V&A Museum in London which closes today.  I had a fab day there a week ago and the exhibition was amazing.
