Post-Paducah Stash Update

My name is Jan and I'm a fabriholic. I indulged. And I enjoyed it. And I'm not sorry.

I haven't even counted the yardage yet. I'll tally up the totals for the month and year to date next week. I'm going to have a busy year of sewing if I want to consume all this!

It's pretty amazing how over three days of shopping at multiple locations, without carrying swatches, I came away with stuff that works together.
Pink, Orange & Yellow, inspired by that top print from Hancock's back room.
Selected with specific projects in mind. 
These were actually on my shopping list!
Black & White & Feminine.
I found the black floral to go with something in my stash, and the rest came along to play.
Love that bias stripe at the bottom for binding - all my friends got some and we scarfed up the bolt.
Masculine, and also because they go with something else that's percolating in my head.
More black prints because that border print goes with something I already have in my stash.
Stash Basics 
When you find good basics in Hancock's back room or the
color of the day at Eleanor Burns, you have to stock up, right?
Low Volume - ditto comment above.
They counted ivory and beige in the tan color of the day at EB.
You can never have too many pale neutrals, right?
Some Kaffe Fasset prints and friends from Hancock's back room,
at the last minute before I left town.
I had a very successful and fun trip! Oh, and seeing the show quilts was great, too - overwhelming in their complexity and excellence, but so inspiring. Plus there was a surprise - more tomorrow.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for the fabric Stash Report. I know I'm not the only one who may have indulged my fabric habit a bit in Paducah!


  1. Oh you did quite well for yourself! LOVE shopping for fabric at the show in Paducah... Hancock's is pretty close to heaven - LOL! Couldn't go this year (my son got married last night) but I plan to be there next year. Thanks for showing your goodies...almost as good as shopping myself.

  2. I have a few of those fabrics myself. Love the wiggly stripes on black. It's a great border print.

  3. Lots of fun and pretty stuff!

  4. Wow, you got some really fabulous selections here. So glad it was a great time! :)
