Sunday Stash, travelling edition

As previously mentioned, last weekend I jaunted off to Vancouver to take in the Vancouver MQG showcase of modern quilts. It was my first all-modern quilt show and I won’t soon forget it. I love modern quilts so much. I took a picture of pretty much every single quilt and a few backs too.

And I went the fabric store without kids! I went with a list so that I wouldn’t buy indiscriminately but I still had fun. What’s not to love about name brand fabrics at 6$-15$/m? Anna Maria Horner at 6$/m. WOW. I could have shopped for days…but I reined it in at 2 hours and 20 dollars. Here’s what that looks like.

Backing for THIS quilt.

It was tough to decide on this but the yellows match perfectly. And I had to pick something.

I saw this on Dressew’s instagram feed a while ago.

I really hope it will match this fabric:

Need to actually check but even if it doesn’t match I have a metre of cool stripes for 6$.

And some of this but only a little.

Low cost fabric is wonderful and everything but boy do I hate ripped fabric. Look at the pulls!

Then down to the basement to see if there were any treasures in the remnants bin:

Yes there were. Sparkly treasures to boot!

  1. I hate when stores rip the fabric. I completely understand the principle behind it, but it drives me nuts. Those are some pretty sweet fabric scores and price is even better 🙂
