I was going through one of my closets looking for some of my old Disney stuff. Upon removing bag after bag of fabric from the tops of boxes I realized that I had another collection going.
Although I have yet to learn to quilt, all quilters have what they call a fabric stash. So I thought I'd share my "stash" with everyone.
I've been collecting fabric for years. I can sew a straight line fairly well, so I've made loads of curtains and a few simple tops for myself. Every time I see tiki fabric that I like, I pick up a couple of yards for the stash.
Although I don't have any vintage fabric, it looked like this one had been in the store for a good long time.
I used this to for the curtains in my guest bathroom.
Found this one years ago at a Tiki Farm parking lot sale.
I bought this a few years ago when I accompanied my sister on the SoCal Quilters Run.
JoAnn Fabrics carried this flannel a while back.
I think I found this one on-line.
I bought this at Tiki Time Fabrics just outside of Auckland. I found it in blue a few days later in Hamilton.
Some fabrics have a low Tipsy factor.
Others are a little higher.
I picked this up earlier this year on Maui.
Every time I travel, when I get to my hotel I pull out the phone book and find all the nearby fabric stores. Another from Maui.
I bought this on my first trip to Oahu. I left the Aloha Bowl flea market with about 15 yards of fabric. I bought this in green also.
This is a little more tikiesque than tiki, but I really like it.
Another on-line purchase.
I found this in LA a couple of months ago. It's really soft.
There's a discount fabric shop in Anaheim. That's where I found these next few screen prints.
I also found this busy design there. I bought it in blue too.
I found this on-line a while back and made curtains to cover one of my closets that doesn't have doors.
When this went on sale years ago at JoAnn, I think I hit every store in a 30 mile radius. It was about $2 a yard.
This is my all-time favorite fabric. I only have a little bit left. I've made a top and a skirt out of it.
I actually have plans for most of these fabrics. I've got tons of ugly vertical blinds that I need to get rid of and replace. I really do intend to learn to quilt also.
