Quilt 'Stache

I've recently been adding to my quilt 'stache...

 Won a stack of new pretties: Jeni Baker's "Color Me Retro" Art Gallery fabrics from Colleen at The Busy Bean!!
See Colleen's tutorial to make a divided organizing bucket using these fabulous fat quarters HERE.
And... I just had to have some of these adorable 'staches from Riley Blake Designs Geekly Chic line.  A-dorable!   

Yep. Visions of new quilts are dancing through my head.  But I'm afraid these WHIMMS (works hidden in my mind) may have to wait a while.
In addition to the pile of new RBD basics I've been playing with for an upcoming video tutorial, I'll teach some Snippets at my local guild retreat this weekend, and in a couple of weeks I'll go hang out at the  Home Machine Quilting Show, teaching a few classes and serving on the board.  The choir I sing with will be recording an album in the evenings that same week, then I'll head to Portland with the Riley Blake Designs team to teach some fun Make & Take projects in their booth at Quilt Market. (Still doin' the happy dance!)  I anticipate happy exhaustion ahead... 

Have you added to your stash 'stache lately?  Do you dive in and cut it up immediately, or are you like me, leaving it in little piles to pet and admire and dream about?  Maybe the moustache print is a new blouse... then I could wear my new teensy moustache earrings... yeah, I'll keep dreaming.
Happy fabric dreams!



  1. Did some serious stashing during the Cincinnatti IQF. I usually don't know what the fabrics will be used for, so I admire it til I do. LOVE your bag!

  2. That stache fabric is just fabulous! So cute. I think I am more like you. I love looking at my fabrics in little piles and dreaming.

  3. I'm confident I will win that lottery soon..... I can see the piles of fabric. Not that I have a shortage of fabric..... But I can always use more....


So happy you stopped by for a visit! Thank you!
