Sunday Stash #74 - Noteworthy Winners

My local quilt shop, The Remnant Warehouse, has buy one, get one free, fat quarter Fridays. Y'all know I'm down for a deal! So every Friday that I can find a few spare minutes hours, I make sure to check out what is on offer. This past Friday was pretty fruitful! I have been collecting bits and pieces of Moda's Noteworthy range, but this is the first of the Bucket List in blue mist that I've stashed.


So as I was perusing this Noteworthy fabric for all the life affirming things I should be ticking off my bucket list, I came across this lovely, little gem of a list. "Be Happy: go on a cruise, donate blood, start a blog, grow a garden, learn how to sew, have a daughter, have a son, wake up in Paris, teach a college class." Well, colour me happy, I have done all those things! I feel so fulfilled!


I picked these two additional fat quarters from the BOGO bin. The low volume (trying desperately to embrace) on the left is from Moda's 2wenty Thr3e, and that geometric, floral motif is from Moda's Salt Air range. I have been trying to get my hands on a piece of that specific Salt Air colour way for ages, and you will not even believe how many little old ladies I had to push out of the way to get to it. Let's just say they'll think twice about leaving their canes at home next time!


Now, we have some winners to announce! I made a big faux pas by not really clarifying how the winners were chosen. To be honest, I didn't really think I would have that many people waving their sparkle flags, so I figured I'd just choose the first three. Apparently, a lot of you want some Molli-style Pay It Forwards, who knew!? In an effort to be fair, I wrote down the email addresses of all those interested, handed it to Mr. Sparkles and said, pick three. Drum roll please ...

Sarah @ Mila + Cuatro
Leanne @ She Can Quilt

Hosting duties were also a hot commodity, and those winners are:

May 11 - Em @ Moonlight Sewing
May 25 - Hannah @ Quirky Hannah
June 8 - Nicholas @ Quilts From the Attic
June 22 - Mary @ Handmade by Mary Emmens

I'll be in touch with all of the winners, and thank you to everyone who expressed interested!

  5. Tickle me pink, we have the same prints in our stash this week! (although mine is the cream Noteworthy). I was similarly amazed how my trained eye can now pick out the best modern fabrics from a sea of not-so-exciting prints.

  8. That is so cool that you have done everything on that checklist, did you teach the College class in Australia, I was just talking to my husband about whether or not the Universities are Free in Australia, they are in Greece when you take your exam in High School and immediately enter the University. Congratulations to all of the winners!

  10. Love Noteworthy!! As soon as it came out I bought some layer cakes and a bit of yardage and made a quilt top. My sister-in-law saw me putting it together and fell in love with it and claimed it for my niece. Couldn't deny my niece. But.....now I need another quilt in Noteworthy!!!
