Stash

Ever since Monday when I posted the giveaway and started reading everyone's comments, I started thinking about how quilters use the term stash for their fabric! 




According to the urban dictionary?








We all sound like we are drug addicts or something!!

Which brings me to what I am calling my Black Friday haul that I mentioned on Wednesday.

First, my awesome friend Bree at Distant Pickles messaged me to let me know Joann's was offering their 40 yd roll of Warm and Natural batting for $209.99. It is normally $449.00. Not to mention she shared a free shipping code with me. Wow, right?!?! It was too good to pass up.



I wish I had a better photo of my box and batting, but it is too heavy for me to lift right now.  The boys plopped into the garage.  Just picture it as a HUGE roll of batting.  I think I will have enough batting for the next ten years....or maybe not?

I also noticed that my Facebook quilting friends were abuzz about the sale on craftsy.com. I just had an email yesterday and it seems they are still having some really decent deals on pre-cuts! Since I had birthday money I shopped for the first time for bundles that I loved. No plans. No particular person in mind. 



Riley Blake!! 
I couldn't pass them up.  Recently, I have really been intrigued by their lines and wanted them!



Fly a Kite, Scoot, and Simple Life FQ Bundles and Fox Trails Layer Cake

I also picked up these extra pre-cuts. 



 Scamper bundle,  Chicopee design roll, and Bernatex.

Oh....and it doesn't end there! 
 My friend Tracey at Traceyjay Quilts was destashing.  I couldn't pass it by.  


Blush.  
Yardage and about 32 Fat Quarter cuts.
  Perfect for the quilt I have planned for my aunt who is battling breast cancer!

I am wondering....how many of you took advantage of all the amazing Black Friday sales?!?!
  I used to hate having my birthday right before Thanksgiving as a kid.  It seemed that everyone was distracted about the coming holiday.  But, now?  I think I am starting to like it!!!!

Speaking of stash....it isn't too late to enter the giveaway for the Amy Butler bundle.
I think it would look very nice in ANYONE's stash!!!

  1. Wow, what a haul! I got in trouble for spending $40 at Jo-ann's yesterday. LOL and I'm not sorry I did either. (spent the money)

  2. Great Haul! I missed the Warm & Natural batting deal. I did get a 20 yd roll of poly batt (for charity quilts) and a 25 yd roll of Pellon Cotton batt, though.
    From Craftsy I just got a mystery box. You spend $50, with the promise of the goodies being at least $100 MSRP, but you don't know what they will be. I am contemplating ordering an other, if they're still offering it. I got some good stuff.
    PS, the memory quilt is going in the mail this afternoon. Should be there soon.

  3. Great buys, so now come clean and show us a pic of your "stash" (I have a feeling it is way bigger than mine so I can show hubby and then have a excuse to spend up! lol) Hope the recovery is going well. huge hugs
