stash report October 7, 2018

This week I stopped at an estate sale, actually 3. The first sale, I was there early enough to find some fabric, and it was 1/2 price. Most of the mauve and blue fabric was from the 80s and 90s. I have a dresden plate from back then as an ufo. I may need some of this to finish it. There was 15 yards in that bundle. which surprised me, since it looked so little and innocent. 15 yards is a lot of fabric.

I was thrilled with the bright fabrics. It would make a fun baby quilt.

Part of the weekend was a quilt show in Lafayette. I didn't take many pictures but here are the ones I did. I think it was called pickle dish gone wild.

I love classic block quilts

and this was a beautiful patriotic quilt

Most of the color on this quilt came from the stitching -  very interesting

15 min to stitch at life in pieces


  1. The quilt with all the stitching is stunning. Love the brights.

  2. What a lovely quilt show . . . it amazes me when I see so much talent all brought together in one place. When you said Lafayette, I wondered if you were talking about Indiana. I'm and ole Indiana girl that has been living in the Northwest for 45 years, but there is a part of my heart that will always be there.
    It sounds like you are a fabric angel, donating so much, WOW! I am sure that they were very grateful.
    Well, I am your newest follower and I do hope that you come visit and maybe even follow be back. I love making new friends with common interests. I don't have a lot of time for stitching except in the cold weather months when the garden is finally put to bed for the winter. That time of year is right around the corner and I'm ready for it, LOL.
    Happy to meet you and happy quilting.
    Connie :)

  4. You find such great buys at these types of sales. I think I like the owls the most.

  5. Yummy fabric finds! Thanks for sharing those rather gorgeous quilts.

  6. Nice fabric haul! I need to get my Snow Days finished, still need to make the blocks.

  7. Those are beautiful quilts; what a great show. Your embroidery piece is gorgeous; I think I have that pattern tucked away somewhere.

  8. I recognize some of those 80s and 90s fabrics. I loved the blue and mauve colorway that was prominent during that time. Ugh, now I feel old. I love those bright fabrics. Those quilts are very pretty....especially Jacobean Journey. Enjoy stitching your tree.

  9. Hope you enjoyed your tree stitching!
    Love the bright fabrics you bought... great purchase!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!
