This year I really wanted to participate in the Sunday Stash blogging series. I thought it would be helpful to document what’s going in, what’s (hopefully) going out and what I have. The only problem is that I haven’t bought any fabric since around mid-November! Shocking, but true.
So in the weeks that I don’t stash any new fabric, I will just feature part of my “old” stash — and hopefully feel a bit inspired to use it!
As with most things, I believe it’s best to start at the beginning. I used to quilt when I was younger, but I switched to making clothes, then I did neither for a long time. A couple of years ago, I bought the most adorable pincushion from HappyFind on Etsy.
I loved the fabric so much that I asked Venus where I could find it, although I wasn’t sure what I would use it for. Well, it turns out it is Neptune by Tula Pink and it was already hard to find at that point. Digging online to find this fabric led me to flickr, HMQG, many friends and a rediscovered love of quilting. With cute fabric like this, it’s pretty hard to resist the quilting bug!
I might have gone a bit crazy “stocking up” because here is my Neptune stash!
I’m fairly ashamed to say that I have been a teensy bit scared to cut into this fabric. Maybe I could do it in 2012?
