Solidly Lucky

While I was out, I learned via email that I won Bry's blog contest. Woohoo! She was very generously giving away a stack of bella solids leftover from this beautiful quilt. I wasn't expecting the package to be so large, but it contained everything here plus a baggie of scraps. Thank you so much, Bry! I only hope I can use them for something as lovely as your quilt.
Bella Solids
I went to many quilt shops in Iowa and Arkansas while on vacation--I only wish I could remember all of their names. I bought an embarrassing amount of fabric. It was really nice to be able to browse and pick out what i liked, rather than having to guestimate colors online. I'll be showing one new stash pic a day until I run out. It's going to take awhile.
Vacation stashing
These are the fat quarters and precuts. I want to do a grey and yellow quilt eventually, so i bought some Moda Sunkissed. The solids are Shot Cottons. The roll is 5" x width of fabric hand-dyed solids. I'm super excited about those. I've been wanting to do a colorful solids quilt for awhile, so I'm sure all of these new fabrics will come in handy.


  1. Lucky! I'm glad you had fun stashing on your vacation. You scored some beautiful solids!

  2. Congrats on your win!  I know you will make beautiful quilts with your new fabrics!
