Stash Builders

During the Holiday vacations, I decided to order some fabrics to build up my stash a bit. I'd say it is rather small. And doing some blocks for bees using fabrics from my stash, I always need to go to the fabric store because something is missing. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of choice around here. At least not for modern quilting cottons. So, I decided to look online. I was mainly looking for geometric prints in different colors of the rainbow. I found this bundle at Sew Fresh Fabrics.

I just received it this weekend. Yeah! It's Peg and Becca's Modern Basic Bundle - The Ultimate Stash Builder - 18 Fat Quarters. That was perfect for me. And during the Holiday, Sew Fresh Fabrics had a discount on shipping. It only cost 6$ to ship a flat rate envelope to Canada. So, I jumped on the occasion.

I took advantage of this and decided to order some more fabric to fill up the envelope. I chose this Black and White bundle, which is also great for building up a stash. I shouldn't be missing much for my next bee blocks.

I also ordered a fat quarter for each of my boys to make them some pouches for their Hot-wheels. Their collection is growing and they don't have anything to store them. I may do something like those zip bags by Elizabeth Hartman. They would be good for carrying them around or if we go out and the boys want some little toys to bring with them. The gray one is Cross Town in Slate by Alexander Henry. And the green one is Chartreuse by Caleb Gray from On the Road for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

I also ordered 1 yard of Kona Cotton in Aqua for a quilt I have in mind for a while now. It is to go with fabrics from the Treetop collection by Tina Givens for Free Spirit. I ordered 1 yard of Kona Cotton in Olive for projects for my sewing room. I want to do some machine covers for both my sewing machine and serger. Also, a scrap bag to go next to my machine would be really handy to throw in all those cut threads. Something like this or this. I chose Kona in Olive to go with some fabrics from the Early Bird collection by Cosmo Cricket for Andover that have been waiting for me for a while now.

Let see by what I'll start with ... I have so much in my mind but not so much time. And I still have a list of current projects to finish!
