Sunday Stash - 9/04/2017

Just a quick post to share some new additions to my stash for this week's Sunday Stash.

Earlier this week I made made a quick visit to the Darn Cheap Fabrics store in Heidelberg. I'd only found out about these stores recently from members of my bee hive quilting bee and was surprised to find that one of the three Melbourne stores is only a few minutes from my obstetrician's rooms. They don't have a huge range of patchwork fabrics, but what they do have is darn cheap.

I found these Ella Blue prints on the $2/m pile. I though they would make great backings for baby quilts so I picked up a metre of each.

I also picked up some bright tone-on-tone Lecien prints for only $8.50/m.

Also on the $8.50/m shelf were these Art Gallery Fabric prints. They are a bit softer than my usual colour choices but I thought they might come in handy for bee blocks etc.

I'm now having weekly check ups with my obstetrician (who tends to run late) so I suspect I'll be spending a bit more time in that store.



  1. Well isn't it convenient to have a quilt store close to your obstetrician. I used to work next door to a quilt store - I should have just had my pay check dumped into their till. It went there anyway on my lunch hours… Nice fabric choices

  2. Lovely fabrics all. The Ella Blue fabrics are new to me. I am in the USA so I promptly did a search and found the Fat Quarter Shop has some of these beauties. New to me fabric is a fabulous find. Thanks for sharing on Sunday Stash and best wishes on your weekly checkups and beyond ... :) Pat
