I Spoke Too Soon - Acquisition Happens


Boundless Solids
I blame it on Cynthia Brunz (Quilting is More Fun Than Housework). She blogged recently about a new product -- solids in luscious colors, available from Craftsy. She tried it, she liked it, I bought it.

But it wasn't so much the fabric as the pattern by Debbie Caffrey that attracted me.

I love quilts where the block looks different depending on the fabric placement. I don't usually purchase kits; I just couldn't resist this one. I will let you know what I think of the fabric when I use it.

I'm not counting this year, but it helps to be upfront with myself (and you) to keep my stash reduction headed in the right direction.

I'll be linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.


  1. That is a nice pattern. Those solids are sweet. I am on a solid refreshing kick these days. DGD#2 will have to keep me from buying too much in Paducah. LOL

  2. It's a beautiful pattern. Sometimes you just have to have a little fun, I think adding a bit here and there helps you keep to the rest of your stash management plans.

  3. You are welcome :)

    I am still working on my project and really like the fabric. I have that kit on my wish list. I think it is so pretty!

  4. Those are yummy colors in the solids and a great pattern, too. Alas, I'm not suppose to buy fabric until I use more.

  5. Debbie does some GREAT patterns... have FUN!!

  6. It's gorgeous - I can see why that palette and that pattern appealed to you!

  7. Can't wait to see your version of this quilt. It's beautiful! Love the bright colors.

  8. Solids are considered 'freebies' in stash acquisition, right? Totally don't count.
    Carry on. 8)

  9. This will make a beautiful quilt! I'm with Gayle on this - solids don't really count in stash numbers.
