Finished Quilts

sunday stash talk

So, now that I'm finally getting my energy back and the nausea is receding, I decided to tidy up my facric stash.  Up until now, I have thrown each purchase into the cupboard so that all "sets" are together and I can't really see what I have or where I need* to improve.
(* not need need, more want need)
So I decided to store by colour - like most normal sane people do.  And here is the result:

you can tell I got bored towards the end by some of my rubbish folding!

It came as a bit of a surprise that blues and greens dominate quite so much.  I also have another shelf of linens and home dec material that hasn't been sorted out yet.  So whilst it was a pfaff getting them in piles like this, at least I can see better what I've got and what I could benefit from getting.  Note on the far right, the large pile of black and greys too - note sure how that happened :-]

As I haven't been feeling so hot for the first couple of months this year, my fabric purchases have been minimal.  Now I'm getting back to feeling ok, the urge to buy has returned and I bought this pile of fabric to make a playmat quilt for the munchkin:

Circa 60 by birch fabrics bought from fabricworm
Do you like?  Laughing boy's mum hates it and is already worrying that her latest grandchild will be dressed like a goth from day 1! Just because I like a more muted palate :-/  It's hard to find good gender neutral colours though I think.  Mind you, after buying clothes for my gorgeous niece Grace just after she was born, her mum took me aside and mentioned that colour would also be a good option!   I need to work on that I think.

Hope to start sewing again this week - getting a little excited by the prospect - woot!
