Sunday Stash

Linking up with Fiona at her Sunday Stash
This week's Stash report is very exciting to me as it has two of my favorites. Those would be dots and Denyse Schmidt fabrics!

First the dots, these are the new Ombre Dots by Riley Blake and they are just gorgeous. Ombre seems to be trending right now, but I would have gone for these anyway, because they're dots! Speaking of Ombre I can't wait until those ombre solids come out later this year. I got my dots from Selvage123 on Etsy. They also have the new chevrons, which I have so far managed to resist.

And then there's the new DS Quilts (almost)fat quarter fabrics. These are sold in 1yd packages and each contains 4 different prints. So far there are 4 different packages for a total of 16 new prints!

I think the idea is great if you're like me and mosty buy fat quarters. But if you like a bit of yardage, or really love a print and want more, then you're kind of out of luck. The only other minor gripe is that they don't measure a full 18 x 22, but the DS yardage of late wasn't quite stretching to two 18 x 22 pieces in one half yard either, more like 18 x 21.

I also picked up a few patterns that were on sale for only $1 each. Two of them are from Denyse Schmidt.

I'll be back tomorrow with a bag that I made from a different one of my $1 pattern purchases.>


  1. I'm loving the DS in its new color ways! And what great patterns! $1!!! That is a bargain! Happy sewing!

  2. Love love love those Ombre dots! They are so lovely!

    Looks like you scored some great bargains!!

  3. I know who has $1 patterns! I saw that Joann was releasing those new colourway packs and I was slightly envious. I wonder why the FQs are coming in short? Here they measure 20"x22" because we cut at 50cm. So yes US FQs are like shrinkies to us.
