"Adding to the Stash"

I found these fabrics on the mark down table the other day. Just could not leave the store without them. This photo really does not show the colors well. The one on the right is a real pretty antique sage green - the red is a bright red. Look at the cats in the black/white one on the left. You know how much I love my cats!
No, I won't be using all these fabrics together in one quilt - but just will add them to my ever growing stash of fabric. Probably now, I have enough fabric to make 20 quilts (not including the scraps). Before my sweet man retired I bought up quite a few yards of fabric as the money was more plentiful then than it is now. Of course, this was certainly okay with him.
I finished the hand quilting on a small quilt last night. Then started the hand quilting on another after that. I always have one to start as soon as one is finished. Now, I need to get the fabric washed for my next one. It is going to be in hot pink and lime green.

I tell the great white hunter that is why I buy so much now. When we retire, money will be tight and I will be all set. He just smiles and nods. He knows me better than that!

Love those colors!

Can't wait to see your new quilt. I wish that I had to patience to do as much handquilting as you do.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I don't know what I am going to do with the red/black quilt. I am thinking donation for cancer society. The lady I give quilts to for that said this year they will support AIDS this year and I was thinking it would be good for that. I have marked your blog and will continue to read yours.
