Sunday Stash (Shopping Local)

It's day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

I thought I would show you the fabrics included my upcoming project which were all purchased locally (well almost).

First up is this Cotton and Steel basic, Dottie in Picnic from the Spring 2014 collection.  I had a little of this print already in my stash but needed more for my project.  I found the print at CastnCotton, an Etsy shop from Columbia, SC.  Erica has lots of cotton + Steel fabrics with very reasonable and fast shipping.



Next is this Kate Spain print from Jingle for Moda Fabrics.  I've had this print for awhile and fairly certain I purchased it a local quilt shop, Viking Sew 'N Quilt located at 113 W. Butler Rd. Mauldin, SC 29662.



Another Greenville, SC area quilt shop I recommend is Bernina We're In Stitches located at 2310 E. North St, Greenville, SC 29607.

Also included in my project is a Kona solid, Chinese Red which I purchased at Foam & Fabrics just across the state line in Fletcher, NC, just south of Asheville.



Foam & Fabrics carries all 303 Kona Cotton Solids and displays them in color order.  I snapped this picture one day and this is just one partial side of the all the solids they have displayed.  They number all the bolts making it easier to find a color.



I hope you will stop by back Friday, July 21st when I'll be sharing my project for the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop made from my Sunday Stash features.

  2. Oh wow, I've never seen a store carry all 303 colors of Kona! It sounds like I'd really enjoy visiting Foam & Fabrics just to see the colors in order. :) I look forward to seeing what you make with these!

  3. I can't wait to see your project since I have the same fabrics in my stash. Also, I checked out CastnCotton--such a sweet shop, carried everything I like or already have.

  6. How hard it would be to resist having some of each colour in your stash!!! A beautiful display, and you are giving us a colourful preview of 21st July.

  7. I love that Jingle Paige. Can hardly wait to see what it becomes. We have a shop on the other side of Michigan that I am going to next weekend, they too have all the Kona Solids. I am afraid to go into the shop.

  8. I have found a couple of online shops which have the full range of Kona solids but it must be wonderful to actually see them all. One shop does a stash club where you get a fat quarter or a fat eight in every colour over eighteen months. I recently bought a colour card too, it's a great investment. Looking forward to your Christmas post, see you Friday.

  9. It's a challenge to find Kona solids around here. I can't imagine a store with all of them -- how fun would that be?

  10. Oh my! It's wonderful that you have so many brick-and-mortar fabric shopping options! We have NOTHING in our area that stocks modern, let alone anything in a 100-mile radius that carries so many solids! And ALL of them?! Wow. I can't figure out why Central Florida doesn't have a good quilt shop expect perhaps that fewer people make quilts in Florida? Because it's hot here? But goodness, we have 1,100 quilters in our quilt guild, so you'd think we would have some options. You don't realize how fortunate you are.

  11. I think I must get myself to Foam & Fabrics!! I have a surprisingly hard time finding Kona solids, and I am in an area with a good number of brick and mortar shops. I do like seeing all the colors together!
