Sunday Stash #1

SUNDAY STASH GREETINGS – I thought I’d share my recent stash additions with everyone. I posted a few days back that I ordered some of Joel Dewberry’s new Deer Valley line. It came in the mail on Friday. I was so excited. The fabrics are as colorful as I hoped they would be. In the stash photo above you will see all the deer valley fat quarters stacked on the left. My other birthday fat quarters are stacked next to them. SMILES!!

I recently came across some blocks that John (AKA Quilt Dad) has made using Deer Valley. He is always so creative with his fabrics. I am constantly drawing inspiration from his flickr photostream. Maybe I’ll get the nerve one of these days to cut into my Deer Valley. For now, I’d rather admire it all neatly folded on the shelf!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July Saturday. I was able to get some projects finished up around the house in the morning. We ventured across town to my in law’s in the afternoon for our annual BBQ. This year everyone wanted to do surf and turf. They ordered enough lobsters and potato salad to feed a small army! No seafood for me though, blech!! I’ve never liked any kind of seafood. My mother in law also made a pot roast so I was happy.

Sunday brought some more time in the sewing room. I’ve started and almost finished a top for my sister in law. She recently moved into a new apartment and I wanted to make her something for lounging on her couch. I’ll post some photos later after I finish the piecing. I need to pick the backing fabric as well. Hope she likes it.
