Stash Report Week 10


Hullabaloo by the Urban Chiks is a Moda line I've been anxiously waiting to see in person after seeing some limited pictures of it from fall market. The fabric says "inspired by children--" and it could be used for children's quilts and accessories; however, I find the line to be fresh, modern, and perfect for both modern projects and traditional ones with a touch of whimsy.


The line is very versatile with prints ranging from those that seem to fit in with the earlier Chiks lines Sweet and Swell to those prints that seem like they might fit in with their earlier  line, 1974.  Anyway...I love each print.  I'll have to put on my thinking cap and figure out what I want to make with this amazing fabric!


Not much sewing this weekend--I  finished up a couple of projects for a friend and treated myself to nearly a whole day of cutting out projects I've been wanting/needing to start. I finally have everything for my "Picnic" quilt  cut and ready to chain-piece.  This quilt should finish up pretty quickly.  I also cut out everything for "Eventide" and should be able to make good progress on that quilt soon!


The only actual "used" fabric (of mine) this week was the 1/2 yard for binding for my It's a Hoot mini "Wild Thing" quilt--it's fun to have it hanging in my sewing room (number one project this summer is to paint the sewing room so that the paint doesn't "clash" with the quilts I've got hanging in there).

So...in for the week was one layer cake at 3 1/8 yards bringing my year-to-date in to 81 1/4 yards; since I only used 1/2 yard this week my year-to-date used is just 58 yards, leaving me with a 23 1/4 yard balance. (I'm linking up here with my stash reports).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend...see you soon!

Oh I want to make a Wild Thing quilt! And in It's A Hoot would be so perfect. Thanks for the inspiration.

And I LOVE Hullabulloo...trying to resist purchasing some but methinks that attempt will be futile...

Your "Wild Thing" quilt, with the white and swirls is really great! It looks fabulous hanging there, even without a wall color change. Great color choices!

Hullabaloo is yummy! I love the colors, the prints do look fresh.

I'm loving your Picnic quilt in Central Park. That's another great fabric line. And the Wild Thing quilt looks really happy on the wall.

I always love fabrics by Urban Chicks, and this new collection looks very cool. I adore those colors, which make me think of the beach.

Love seeing your quilt hanging on the wall! That must really brighten up the room with such wonderful splashes of color.

Mary said...

Would you mind sharing - in the bottom photo, what is the pattern for the quilt hanging on the left (that we only see part of)? It looks like the perfect pattern for the baby quilt I'm trying to plan. Thanks!

Annette said...

I am absolutely in love with your Wild Thing quilt!

Carol T said...

I like urban chicks new line. Your wild thing quilt is really pretty. I have to quilt mine and I hated making the blocks (very attention span lacking for me).

Q said...

just cover the whole room with quilts Sherri, and you don't have to worry about the colour of the walls :D

CJ said...

Hullabaloo is at the top of my list for when this fabric diet is up for re-evaluation. Well let me be honest, EVERYTHING I want is at the TOP of the list! LOL

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Love your little Wild Thing quilt! In fact I have the charms and pattern to make one! Isn't copying the highest form of flattery!

Jan Marie said...

Sherri, what is the pattern on the third picture. That looks like a fun pattern to do.

Judi said...

Hi Sherri
Your fabrics are wonderful! Truly you will make some fine projects with them.. I love the wallhanging too.

This is my first visit here. I'm going to become a Follower so I can come back again.

Please do come by and visit me as well.
