STASHING #9

Remember the spoils of the #greatukfabricdestash I mentioned in my last post?  Well, they’ve all arrived and the stash is swelling.  The point of destashing wasn’t entirely lost on me and I did sell more than I bought, though only just!  The event was a great way to give those fabrics you know you’ll never use to somebody else whilst maybe acquiring some things you’ve long coveted.  For me that was anything Tula Pink, and I was lucky enough to score some pieces from her earlier collections.

Clockwise from left:

Another fabric line I missed first time around was Alexander Henry’s ‘The Ghastlies’.  There are many great pieces to this collection and I was so pleased when this piece of yardage appeared on my Instagram feed.  I had to have it!

Despite the vast and somewhat overwhelming amount of fabric being offered that night, I did show some restraint and came away with only a few more things.  I don’t have much information about the following pieces but I love them all the same.  The spiderweb is a perfect addition to my ever-growing collection of black and grey prints and the Japanese linen robots was too cute to leave.

I’m still waiting on my Dr Seuss ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ bundle which is being kept safe in California for me.  As well as fabric, I used my destashing fund on something I’ve wanted for such a long time.  My quilting life is about to get much easier as I finally have a Robert Kaufman Kona Solids colour card.  Matching colours and planning quilts is going to be a breeze now.  These cards are notoriously difficult to get hold of in the UK, particularly the most up-to-date version with all 271 colours.  If anyone wants one then one of my favourite online fabric shops M is for make has them in stock.  Be quick though, because they go fast!

This week I’m linking up with Sarah Quilts, who’s taking over hosting duties from Molli Sparkles for this week’s Sunday Stash.

  1. That Tula is positively vintage these days! Maybe the IG Destashing should become a yearly festivity, like a spring cleaning after the holidays. I picked up some items too that I’ll hopefully have to show next week!

  2. I am so jealous of that Ghaslty fabric. I too had not started with my fabric obsession when it came out. I have no idea what I would ever make with it, but I know my shelves are empty without it 🙂
    Great destashing!
