Today I am so excited to help spread the word about an awesome new book– Smash your precut stash book. This is all about your stash. More specifically –your precut stash. I met the authors at quilt market last year….such a super talented pair! They make an awesome team. Their site is- Seams Like a Dream.
You know how it goes…. you can’t handle buying just little bits of fabric. You want to have a little bit of each fabric from the line. But, your wallet just can’t allow you. What to do? You end up picking up a few precuts. Those things are fantastic!
They are a little bit of each of fabric in the line– no worries about whether you they match, co ordinate…. everything is perfect.
What I find though is that I have collected a few of them….with no real idea of what I’d like to do with them. This is where the book comes in. There are a lot of projects and patterns to help you out!
I played around with the ribbon or braided look, and a little bit of the flying geese too.
For the hop they sent around a few questions…..
1– the fabric color I have the most of— blue! I love blue. Any shade, color, print. When shopping for fabric I am drawn to the blue tones, even though I have more than enough!
2- favorite precut— I love charm packs. They are big enough to do some fun with and big enough to show off the print if you choose to leave the square big.
3- favorite pattern in the book– It’s a toss up between the Down the Garden Path showing off a ribbon style piecing and My Favorite Fat Quarter Table Runner– featuring flying geese. Both of these I have experimented with
