Stash it Sunday ~ Week 24

Welcome to Stash it Sunday

I have seen so many people celebrating Christmas in July and I had to join in with all the fun. This week we stopped over at a great shop. 

A Merry Little Christmas by Zoe Pearn is a beautiful Christmas collection. I am really digging on the whites, silvers and blues this coming Christmas. Call me old fashion but living up here in Wisconsin I love my winter wonderlands. This collection reminds me of just that. I think this would make a beautiful throw while cuddling with the family next to the fire. 

Below I found some awesome panels/collections that I found on sale. I know we can't always afford our favorite designer fabrics but if you are like me its hard to resist a sale. So here were a couple of my favorite sale items.

 I am a big fan of Julie's I think she has great taste in the collections she picks out for her shop. Stop by her shop to see all the beautiful collections that fill her store. The Intrepid Thread is not only an online store. If you live in Milpitas, CA area you can visit her brick and mortar store as well. You can also follow Julie on her Blog or on her Facebook Fan Page. 

I love to hear from my readers...What would you make with this collection?

Happy Crafting,

Stash it Sunday ~ Week 23

Happy Sunday!!!!!!!

So I have been thinking about adding a little something to the Stash it Sunday Posts. For now on I will not only share my favorite new collections but you are also going to see some of my favorite on sale or clearance collections as well for those fabric bargain hunters. Once again this week we are stopping by our favorite sponsor


The Summer Cleo Collection by Another Point of View is definitely a me type collection. I love its simplicity not to mention the beautiful butterflies, AND its purple!!!!! I have to be honest I would love to have a throw quilt from this collection. I am in LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!! I think the stripes and dots give it the perfect touch of contrast. 

For the new bargain deal collection I found was the Grunge Basics by BasicGrey. I would love to have this collection for my solid color stashes. This collection would be great to offset some of those other collections you might have laying around. 

If you haven't had the pleasure then make sure you stop in and see all the amazing collections that Fat Quarter Shop has to offer. The site is neatly organized so you can find exactly the style of fabric you are looking for.

 The Fat quarter shop can be found on Facebook and you can also follow them on their blog page - The Jolly Jabber -

I always love to hear from my readers so why don't you let me know what you would do with this collection if it was in your stash.....
Happy Stashing,
