Posh by Chez Moi for Moda + a bit of Alexander Henry's Aragon Swirl
In the name of simplifying, I'm going through my stash and trying to either (a) use it or (b) share it. So what have I discovered? Even though I bought nearly every piece with a specific project in mind, I have collected too much over the years to ever actually sew up, at least with the time I have. I have lovely sets of fabrics that coordinate beautifully--and I can't even remember what the project was. Sad.
I still like most of the fabric, but really, I'm more interested in a different style now. And frankly, what I need to spend time on is FINISHING those projects already started. My brother, for example, is about to graduate again, and I haven't quite finished the quilt I started the last time he graduated! And I need the space to sew in. Lucky for me, I find the swaps and quilt alongs really help me stick with a project, so that, at least, is progress.
Today I had planned to giveaway some charm packs, but then I found this set of scraps someone else had given me. This Posh line is lovely; I used some of it in this STUD mini. They go beautifully with Kona cotton in stone. The lucky winner of today's giveaway will receive enough scraps to make a doll quilt, or even enough for a baby blanket if you combine it with something else like a fab solid. There is nearly a 1/4 yard of the big piece you see. (BTW, I will continue to giveaway pinks--I really don't like them, I just seem to have them.)
To enter, just leave a comment sharing what you might make from this set--I don't want YOUR stash to become full of fabric just for the sake of fabric :)
Comments close Tuesday evening at 10 pm. The winner will be announced Wednesday 8 am. Good luck!
