TRAVELING STASH BOX #2 DO YOU LOVE DENYSE SCHMIDT?

I was lucky enough to win Traveling Stash Box #2 from Tricia at Ramblings of a Quilter recently! I haven't had a stash box in quite a while so it was fun opening this one! Lots of magazines, patterns and fabric! I decided to "freshen" up the box a bit. Hope you all like what I have added!

First I have to show you what I selected to keep! (Click on pictures to enlarge)
 
Mostly fat quarters with a few larger pieces
Now what I have added to the box : six(6) half yards of DS Quilting in blue. I bought loads of it when I had a 60% off coupon at Joann's....you would not believe how many trips I made to get all of the fabric! I thought I would share some of the goodies to the winner of the box!

I am also adding a six(6)piece fat quarter bundle from Connecting Threads. I really love the combination of the reds and yellow.

Next on my list is a bundle of black and white fabric. The two pieces on top are approximately fat quarters and the bottom four pieces are half yards. Aren't they gorgeous?

 Finally I am also adding a Quilter's Quarters by DS Quilts Collection. Isn't that a great idea...putting four fat quarters together?

Just a note: You do not have to take the complete bundles  if you only want one or two pieces. I just bundled them because they looked so good together!

TRAVELING STASH BOX #3



Yes, I won another Traveling Stash Box! Well, really again since I won Box #3 last spring but boy, had it changed! Shanna from Sparrow in Flight picked  my number! And am I excited!( (I have very limited space to take a photo of all the things in the box, so click on Shanna's link and see what is in there.( You will have to mentally remove what the two of took but that isn't that hard!) Of course, first came the fun of seeing what was in the box...then the hard part! Choosing what I wanted to take. I finally decided and here is what I chose:

Aren't they gorgeous? The bright green goes perfectly with the Christmas fabric I bought last week. This is the second time I have been lucky enough to grab that fabulous Debbie Mumm checked fabric...I love it!  

Now onto what I have added back into the box. Click on the photo to see the fabric up close and personal!


                                         

Here is what I added. The top left fabric is a yard of Denyse Schmidt's Meadowlark. Right to it is a 1/2 yard of another of the Meadowlark  and to the right of it is a 1/2 yard piece of  Daisy in Blue and Olive by Kei for Yuwa of Japan.that goes oh so well with the first two! On the left is from top to bottom a gorgeous piece called Bird and Pomegranate by William Morris, two polka dot fat quarters and at the bottom are two mini charms: Boho and Enchanted Pond by Moda. The two pieces on the right are two half yards by Heidi Grace...sure wish I had bought more of those!

Great Fabric Bargains...and I do mean Great!!!!


I dropped by my LQS last week and boy did I make out like a bandit! Linda always has a sale section and this time she had an additional BARGAIN section. To top that off, she was having a 20% off everything. I bought 6 pieces of fabric totaling 20 yards and the price? A totally unbelievable $48! Yes, that comes to $2.40 a yard...do you believe that? So without further ado, here are my great buys!


These two fabrics were not designed together but don't they work well? The top fabric is called "Hoodies Collection Kiss Me" by Timeless Collections. The bottom one is also Timeless Collections and is called Stripes. It is a series of different stitches. I'm not sure what I will do with these but it will definitely be together!

The third piece of fabric is from Riley Blake. It is "Sew Cherry" by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet. It really feels neat to buy fabric from someone who's blog I read  regularly! Kinda' makes it seem like family!


The fourth piece of fabric is this cute little nautical fabric  "Ships Ahoy" by Benartex . I have a layer cake of lighthouses that go well with this. It will make a great backing for the lighthouses.


This gorgeous fabric is Katagami  by Allentown Museum by Red Rooster. It is navy and white and just absolutely beautiful. It is so soft and luscious!



The last piece is a gorgeous Christmas "Alpine Wonderland" by Sheli McCulley for Riley Blake. It is green and red but I love that it is a modern green and red not the more traditional shades which surprises me since I am really a traditional girl!

So for the amazing cost of $48 I got all of this wonderful fabric. Can you believe it? I just wish I had some more money to spend....you know, you never have enough fabric!
