Stash Note 94

Freshly back from a much needed holiday in Sicily I thought it might be a nice idea to share with you some newish fabric I have added to my stash. Newish because I have had the fabric a while and because everybody has been talking about them for months now, I thought I leave the blogging about it for a bit.


I am of course talking about the new fabric designer "shop" of Cotton & Steel. The designers debuted their first collection at Spring Market and I believe their second is a major magnet at the fall market.

I ordered three of the collections and whilst I am obviously impressed with each of them I was particularly taken by the fact that they are all coordinated.

This fact only hit me when I was asked by my lovely neighbour to make twin baby quilts for her to gift to a relative. The twins are girls and she requested colours of pink, purple, yellow and whatever else I thought would work with it.

I had my package of Cotton & Steel lovelies sitting on a shelf and wasn't really sure what to do with them to be honest...that is until this commission came in. So I grabbed the entire stash and sorted out all the relevant colours and that is when it hit me how wonderfully colour coordinated they are. It was a breeze to put something pleasing together.

The fabric is cut and ready to be sewn into two quilt tops that are the same but different. Watch the space....

  1. I love the Mustang collection and have just finished a wall quilt using it. Can't wait to see what you make with it.


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.
