Sunday Stash on Monday

 A whopping 27 yards of fabric has entered my house in the past week. Yikes! There is a plan for all of it, so it will be used soon. My LQS had a sale on Friday, then I went on a shop hop bus trip on Saturday.

The shopping started online with the blue and orange floral from Kate Spain's Sunnyside line. It will be the border fabric on the 4th in my series of wedding ring quilts for my nephew and his bride. The other blues and greens are possibilities for the arcs. Lots more shopping to come for this quilt!

These 1/2 yard cuts of batiks will become guitar straps using this tutorial by Amber at One Shabby Chick for an upcoming craft fair.  If you are local, come see me at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Charlestown, RI on April 12, 9am-2pm.

 These sweet florals will become table runners or mug mats.

These amazing Phillip Jacobs prints had to come home with me. Garden Party (on the left) has been a favorite of mine and I love the bold colors of Gertrude. One or both of these prints will become a One Block Wonder.

I picked up a few fat quarters just for fun!

 These fat quarters will become a gift. I'm thinking about jumping on the churn dash bandwagon.

 I bought this Fons & Porter ruler for squaring up half square triangle units and the polka dot scissors were a free gift for completing the shop hop.

And the sneakiest of peeks at a birthday gift.

The wooden checkerboard was made by Pete last year in wood shop class. We're praying for him today as he starts the Basic Reconnaissance Course. It has been his dream and goal to become a Recon Marine for several years, and now he is 3 grueling months away from completion. OOHRAH!

Great fabrics - I figured your stash must be in need of replenishment. Can't wait to see all that you create.
