Stash Sunday ~ Week 1 ~ Christmas

Week 1 of Stash Sunday, thanks to Tamara. I kinda have my fabric all over the house, some is even stored in the shed! I do have a sewing nook so 2 tubs fit nicely under the table there, and I have a wall unit in the laundry, and a heap of those 55L kids storage tubs on wheels in my WIR, and there's about 9 metres of wadding in the top of the boys cupboard, lol, gotta love a good stash.
Week 1, I am showcasing my Christmas Tub, Fantastico! says Dora ($6 tub from Officeworks). Christmas fabric is my absolute fave of the fabric family, I love a good Christmas print, so when I come across them I buy at least a half metre, if its a deep burgundy, forest green or mustard then I buy a metre as I use those colours so much. I also love printed motifs, I try to stay away from Snowmen as it doesn't snow here but I like a nice snowflake print. And I had a disaster one year with the glitter prints washing off so I try to avoid them too. Last Christmas I bought a jelly roll quilt kit in the Christmas Past print, it came with 3 jelly rolls! I also bought a Vintage Holiday JR and matching FQ pack, no pics as I have started cutting it and I am saving that for WIP Wednesday.And saving the best for last, this is my very fave fabric print, a deep burgundy with jingle bells. I only have a tiny piece, 12 x 16" and I am not game to cut into it yet.

You've got the perfect fabric for cottages, but I"m sorry we are full up. We have 50 women. I'd love to have you though, but the exchange is closed now. I'd like to see pictures if you make some cottages. This is such fun fabric.

What a wonderful stash! I feel the same about the fabrics with glitter and avoid them at all cost!
