Sunday Stash Report

I had to get out of the house a little bit, and I needed to get some quilts to Ft Carson, so .... I did, and my friend Laura owns a quilt shop called Na-La's Quilt shoppe in Fountain - and I had to go there.....

It is a great shop!! They have wonderful fabrics - a lot that i had never seen before... and she has longarm supplies. 

I fell in love with these Fat Quarters... I have no idea what pattern they would look good in, but I seriously love  them. I think the dragonflies clinched it for me!!
Any ideas as to a pattern for them?

And these were end cuts - 2 yard's ish each - on sale!!!  I like dots!!

So my fabric report

ohhh drool.... go digging thru your books and even if a quilt is bigger but uses FQs make it smaller and use these 6. I did that once with 6 FQs I had (apart from numerous yellow brick road quilts) I ended up making a baby boy quilt in teal and browns and it had large crosses or a grid sort of, I'd have to find the pattern, but it was pretty simple and I don't think I used a border either.

Love those fabrics....

Sometimes tho, fabric needs to "mature" in the stash for a while... I'm sure the right project will present itself when it's time!

Love the dots and the FQ. Glad you are up and around and feeling better.

Such fun additions to your stash. Glad you are up and about and feeling a bit better. Matching a pattern to fabric is always the toughest thing for me to do. Can't wait to see which pattern you decide to use.

That IS a picture of lovely looking fabrics. I bet they feel even better than they look :0)

I agree with Impera-Magna; sometimes they just need to get acquainted with the rest of the stash for awhile before taking their own stance at what project they will fit in. Enjoy sifting to find that "just right" project!

I also agree with Melinda: It's great to see you up and around again! The Captain obviously is back at the helm. :D

Pretty, pretty fabric. I usually have to let fabric simmer a bit before I come up with a pattern.

Great stash numbers this year.

Pretty fat quarters. You'll find something good to use them with, I'm sure.
