Sunday Stash #5: Red, Pink and Aqua

I am participating in my first mini quilt swap, the Rainbow Mini Swap Round #2, on Instagram and am on Team Yellow.  I did not have any fabrics from my partner's favorite designers so I needed to go shopping.  Luckily, I found all of these at my local quilt shop.

First up are prints with mostly red and aqua with white backgrounds.

  • Hearts - Smitten by Barb Tourtillotte for Clothworks
  • Floral - Vintage Floral from Vintage Market by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake 
  • Stitches - Stitch Petal from Michael Miller

The pink stack includes:

  • Bloom Check in pink from Bloom and Bliss by Nadra Ridgeway of Ellis & Higgs for Riley Blake
  • Vintage Strawberries in pink from Vintage Market 
  • Stripe from Lovey Dovey by Doodlebug Designs for Riley Blake

The Aqua stack includes:

  • Bloom Diamond in blue from Bloom and Bliss
  • Red dot - feels like Art Gallery but not sure 
  • Aqua solid - unknown

And lastly some:

  • Ladybugs in lava from True Colors by Tula Pink for Free Sprint
  • Vintage Text in Red from Vintage Market

Look at the adorable selvages on the Riley Blake fabrics.  These will be added to the selvage collection!

I realize all the rainbow colors are not represented here, but I have a few more to add to the mix and I think these will make my partner happy!

Linking up to Sunday Stash #159 and for the fist time to Main Crush Monday with Beth at Cooking Up Quilts.


  1. Those sewing machine selvages are awesome! They will really make a great addition to your stash. It's great you were able to find prints at your LQS that will please your partner.

  2. How fun, the sewing machines instead of color dots! Too bad you had to go shopping

  3. I really like the red/aqua colour scheme. Your swap will be fantastic! Aren't the manufacturers clever in realizing we use our selvages so they cooperate by adding cuter images?

  4. Such a great excuse for a shopping spree and too right about those selvedges!

  5. Love those lady bugs Paige...and those aquas.

  6. Those are some adorable fabrics--your swap buddy is going to be one happy camper!

  7. I like all those aquas with the reds and pinks. I haven't had much luck being in the purchasing mood and finding those color combinations. Thanks for sharing these great finds.

  8. You've got some great fabrics there. I am really drawn to the red and white Farmer's Market fabric.

  9. I always love the look of red and aqua together and these fabrics are so perfect! Your partner is sure to love them. :) I adore those little sewing machines - too cute!! Thanks for sharing on Main Crush Monday.

  10. Very sweet fabrics! I love aqua and blue together.
