Sunday Stash #11

A mixed selection today with these divine Kate Spain Paradiso fat quarters and some stash building solids.

Don’t you love the Paradiso range? Oh, heavens, I do! The colours are so fresh crisp and remind me of Caribbean lazy days. Maybe I am in the mood for that having just booked a holiday for the family to Cuba for the end of the year!

I have a plan for these prints. I plan to make a modern crosses quilt using Kona Pewter as the solid fabric surrounding each cross. There are 36 prints which is very handy as the pattern I have designed has 36 blocks (6 rows of 6 blocks), each 12″ square. And I will only use about 1/4 of each fat quarter so will have plenty left for other projects (another Idea Pouch or Bionic Bag perhaps?).

This pile of solids also arrived this week. The photo lighting is dire, apologies, but from the top there is Kona Pewter, Kona Silver, Kona Bleach White and Kona White. Elsewhere is Kona Snow, which is so much like Kona Bleach White that I thought they had sent the same item twice till I checked the colour swatches on my big Kona card.

It is the top one, Kona Pewter, that I intend to use with the Paradiso crosses for the modern crosses quilt I will make shortly. Though as I feel it will have a Cuban influence perhaps I will call it Cruces de Revolución.

Linking up to MolliSparkles for Sunday Stash.

  1. Oh yes, how great to have a plan for the fabric and know that you will have some of it left too! I’ve not looked at the Paradiso range before but it looks gorgeous, I look forward to seeing the finished quilt 😉
