Stale Stash Swap Goodies!

Late last week and today have been very cool mail days - my stale stash swap parcels have been arriving. I'd like to thank Lucy for organising this brilliant swap! It was heaps of fun negotiating what to swap, and what could be better than 'free' fabric?

Firstly, the lovely Alyce from Blossom Heart (a fellow Australian) sent these lovely fabrics. Two Loulouthi fat quarters, and half a metre of a teal and white print from Spotlight:

From the lady herself, Lucy from Charm About You sent a fat quarter of Amy Butler Lark, and some AMH hugs and kisses - plus a great bundle of scraps. Thanks Lucy, you rock! Lucy's just finished an absolutely gorgeous hexagon quilt made from Just Wing It - very, very cool, you should go check it out!

From Dana, a FQ of Moira from Lotta's Echo line. Love the rich orange - gorgeous!

From Cherie of I be's Cheraldine, a FQ of scarves from Aneela Hoey's sherbet pips.

From the fabulously hilarious Danny of Mommy for Reals (who has some serious talent going on!) a full yard of tufted tweets, and some great red gypsy fabric:

And lastly, my cheaty Curve Master presser foot. I really feel like a cop-out getting this, considering I've supposedly done the curves class at Stitched in Colour. But, several of my Twitter peeps swear by it, it means no pinning curves, and apparently makes perfect curves as easy as pie (seriously no pun intended!). I'm hoping to trial it in the next few days, so I'll keep you posted on whether it was worth it :o)

Off to do some more paper piecing - and show you some tomorrow!

You have some great fabrics there! I can't wait to hear how you go with the new foot!

Cherie said...

Wow you swapped for some great fabrics! Can't wait to see what you make with them all =D

Someone was giving away Echo?! *thud*

Have fun with your new toy :o) I've been pretty successful so far just with a regular walking foot and no pins... but I haven't got to those retro flowers yet lol

Yay, you got them :) Nice scores there!

Deborah said...

Wow! You really scored with this! Nice job! And that new foot looks intriguing! I'm eager to hear more about it!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

You really did get some amazing fabric!! Can't wait to see it cropping up in your projects :) I'm intrigued about how you get on with the foot. Thanks for the kind words about my quilt - thankfully my friend loved it too!

Danny Heyen said...

DUDE! You got the fabric! I'm so glad.

I really like my curved piecing foot, though I didn't do much curved piecing till I got it. Interested to see how you like it !
