Wee Stash Building

I have been doing a little stash building lately….wanna see?

Like how I refer to it like its an actual exercise:)

Wee Wander Fabrics

I finally had to get me some of this beautiful line! Wee Wander by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller Fabrics. I ordered these at Fat Quarter Shop.

Folklore Fabrics

I got these when I ventured out to Kelly Ann’s Quilting in Warrenton, Va to hear Alex Veronelli give a lecture on Aurifil thread, so fun!!!….don’t ask me why I didn’t take any pics of this actual event, why?!? These are Folktale by Cinderberry Stitches for Lecien. In the background are some basics for my stash by Swirly Girls Designs.

Penelope by Camelot Fabrics

I don’t think I ever shared here that I won this AMAZING fat quarter bundle and a 12 spool set of Aurifil thread from Camelot Fabrics!!! Love this line, Penelope by Camelot Fabrics. I just love this color palette and these geometric prints.

Fat Quarter Shop Tee

Sew What? I will never live long enough to use all these fabrics.

Sew What? I don’t actually need it.

Sew What? I LOVE it and I’m enjoying it all over again just writing about it:)

I also snagged this super cute t-shirt from Fat Quarter Shop!  You can get one HERE.

Sample Please!



Hola Sassaritas! Hope you had a fabulous week. My internet has been el crasho, so let me catch you up on what I have been up to.

My progress on the Star Surround QAL with Melissa@Happy Quilting! All my lovely little stars. Liking the yellows, the polka dots and stripes are my favorite. I was doubting some of the fabrics, but I think they will add to the scrappines. It’s hard not to over think it, right?


Had a Friday off this week, which is awesome, because I got to pull out my Sampler quilt which I started almost 3 Years ago!!! I made this top with my Sassy Quilters Guild as we learned lots of new techniques and all about some popular traditional quilting blocks. It was a fun project and I only used scraps from my stash to make it. The colors were not my typical palette, but I took what I had and threw them in the pot, and here is what came out. I actually really like the combo.  This year I am pulling out a lot of old tops I made (and then abandoned) and trying to get them done!


I am also trying to make myself continue to practice my FMQ on these tops. I am okay with all my machine quilting when it comes to straight lines or following markings, but I want to learn the “free” part of Free-Motion-Quilting:) So I went for it. No marking…just quilting what came to me. Sorry to say this felt like a flop, but since I used (mostly)matching thread, it doesn’t really show that much, except for on the dark brown, yikes! As I was contemplating why I don’t feel like I am progressing that much with this technique…I realized that if I added up my hours, it may be less than I think. I have concluded that I need some practice samples and actually go over each technique/design…A LOT! Get my  muscle memory going and all. My usual M.O. is to have a quilt top sandwiched and sit down and power out a whole quilt in a day and then not do it again for a month or longer. More daily work and not making it a marathon may help….am I rambling now? Oh, well…I just want to be awesome without practicing…is that too much to ask??? Here are some pics:




Note: I am only showing the least scary pics:) This last one I knew would be rough with the dark fabric and light thread. I could have drawn it all out, but where is the fun in that…

On a super fun note :) here are some awesome fabrics I won from Lisa@InTheBoonDocks. Thanks Lisa!




Hmmmm….. what to do with these.

Keep it Sassy

Okay, that post title has a high cheese factor;) but……

Look what came in the mail! I’ve been waiting to get my hands on some of this line for a while, Comma by Zen Chic for Moda fabrics:)

I have no idea what I am gonna do with it, but I had to have it…ya know what I mean?

There is a long list of quilts I am dying to make, How about you?

Here are a few of mine: dresden plate, a simple HST quilt, orange peel, chevron, swoon, triangle, drunkards path, log cabin, brick….the list goes on and on! I recently wrote a bunch of them down because I kept forgetting what was on my list.

Well, no matter what…with fabric this cute, it will look great! (no such thing as an ugly quilt in my book)

What is a quilt you are dying to make and what fabric line or style are you dying to make it in???
