Sunday Stash & Dash

I think the "Stash & Dash" is going to become a regular post here for me!  I seriously cannot get my shit together during the week lately to write multiple blog posts!  So I now have 15 minutes spare and will punch this baby out using dodgy Instagram photos!  Sorry.....

Are you still awake @partyofeightourstory ? Theres some #weewander #fullmoonlagoon and #colormehappy Happy day indeed!!

Firstly, the stash part - I decided I needed another bundle of Wee Wander, so I wandered over to Westwood Acres and threw it in my cart.  And then decided to make my shipping worthwhile, I best fill that cart up!  I chucked in a fat 1/8th bundle of Color Me Happy and Full Moon Lagoon for good measure.  They were SO pretty when I opened it up, and although I didn't have anything in mind for the Fat 1/8th bundles, I soon found something.....

Wavelength starting to take shape!

The delightful Lee over at Freshly Pieced just released a fabulous new pattern - Wavelength.  She has it on sale for a limited time, so if you pop over HERE you will find it.  I knew Color Me Happy would be perfect for this pattern, and just had to do some creative cutting with the little 1/8th's!  The above photo is 1.5 days work.  I'm using the template version, opposed to the paper pieced.  Basically because I don't have a printer, and I don't really want to ask my husband to print off 100's of templates at work!  I'm THRILLED with how it's coming together, and have cut out another two rows ready to add this week.  My youngest son was watching me lay it out and asked "who's this quilt for Mum?".......  Ummmmmm, I dunno!!!!

And block 11 of the @fatquartershop mystery bom is done! #1moretogo

Another little happy package arrived, my 11th block pattern and fabrics for the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Designer BOM.  I love this block, so cute!  Getting to the end of the BOM, so I shot over to Spotlight last Tuesday to take advantage of their 40% off fabrics, and grabbed some solids and a couple of little prints that will work beautifully will these blocks!

Finished! #paperpieced #unionjack

I have also come to the conclusion this week that I have finally succumbed to Quilter's ADHD.  I seem to be constantly starting new projects and jumping from one to the other.  Totally normal, I'm told, for quilters - but strange for me!  This little paper pieced Union Jack is the beginning of a  project my Wombat Stew friends are helping me with.  A London themed quilt!  It's going to be FAB!

April's #qcabee5 block! Love it!

And lastly, this is my April block for the QCA Bee #5!  Michelle asked for the great block pattern and asked us to use the cutest most fabulous feature fabric we had.  It was pretty obvious I should pull out my Jolli Pomme for the occasion!  She also asked for gem colours and to use some aqua in the block.  I think I covered all bases?  I love it!

Anywho, my 15 minutes is almost up, and I have television to watch!

I'm linking up - You can too!

  1. Wow that's a lot of work! I'm impressed with your wavelength quilt, those colours are gorgeous together. Must be spring in the air or something as I'm drawn to these fresh colours. Love the fussy cut fabric- I am in dire need of cute stuff that is not puppy park or Christmas/Halloween! May have to do a bit of shopping too!

  2. I LOVE that Wavelength quilt--Lee's is so delicious--and yours is looking great too! These are such happy stash editions, and some great piecing work too! :)

  3. Love your color choice and arrangement for Wavelength!

  4. I like the color combo as well. Cute blocks and whoa for the stash addition! :-)

  5. Your wavelength is Awesome!!!! As well as all of your other blocks! You accomplished so much this week and great fabric picks!

  6. I am loving all of your projects. That quilt that you are working on is fantastic. Love the colors.

  7. No wonder you only had 15 mins to bang out this post! Just look at all the amazing sewing you've been up to, gorgeous :)

  8. Wow, your blogs look amazing!!! Best Barbara

  9. I bought a jelly roll of Colour Me Happy on the destash. The colours are gorgeous! It's my favourite line that V and Co have done so far. It looks gorgeous in your wavelength quilt. I don't paper piece or template piece, so I'll just admire yours!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment - I read each and every one of them! xx
