Stash Note 66

This past week was a busy one. After I recovered from the craft fair which took until Tuesday (went to bed Monday night after work at 8 pm !) I had rather a lot to do at work and there was little time to craft never mind re-photographing my unsold makes from the fair I want to put in the shop.I will do it in the next week in case you were wondering.

But today is time to quilt and more over time for a little stash note. This is all about Anna-Maria Horner's new collection 'Field' Study'. Now I have a somewhat difficult relationship with AMH collections. When I started quilting I bought the then new 'Innocent Crush' and was really disappointed when it arrived. Trouble was I bought a half yard set and felt that it was forever in my stash. Still I made a wonderful quilt from selected prints of the collection that I really love but there were a lot of prints that were not my cup of tea. 

When Loulouthi came out, I stayed well away from the quilting cotton although I really like the collection. In the end I did buy several of the voile prints and really loved those.

Then Field Study came out a few weeks ago and I was really taken by it and took advantage of the liquidation sale at Whipstitch to order a fat quarter set. And I am pleased to say that I really, really love this collection. It has lots of interesting prints, fresh bright colors and is to me a very coherent collection.

The collection comes in three  colour ways of which I have the Moonlit and Patina pallette. I particular love the latter as it has wonderful bright greens.



And my favorite print is Raindrops Poppies in Candy. Isn't that just the best name for this great print ? 

The entire collection is available in the UK from the lovely Annie at Village Haberdashery

  1. Oh, if only I needed more fabric! The AMH is popping up in some beautiful projects!


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
