Sunday Stash #15 - I am weak

Off the top of my head, there are a few fabric designers that top my list of must have:  Alison Glass, Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey, Kate Spain and Tula Pink.  Amy Butler is right up there, too.  So, of course, if a new line of fabric designed by one of the above comes out, this girl is right there with her credit card.  Because I am weak.  And a Fabricaholic.  I am okay with that.

Pretty Potent by Anna Maria Horner was released recently and you know what my latest stash is, don't you?  Quilt Home recently had a sale on AMH, a good one, but it is over now.  : (  Here is my latest stash:

Chamomile and Aloe Vera - Balm for the soul

Family Unit (LOVE!) and Echinacea

Eucalyptus and Thistle (Hmmm, the one Thistle looks a tad Halloweenish to me.  But I don't like thistles.  Been stung by them before.)

Primrose and Banner Days

I will admit that some of the prints are just okay, while there are others I just love.  After my Kate Spain Daydream adventure, I will be making a king size with the above and these two.

Steel and Black Essex Linen.  With this pattern.

(Pattern can be purchased here at 20% off for PDF:  Pink Chalk.)

This will be for our king size bed.  The pattern is simple and should come together fast. This goes towards my goal of a quilt for every bed in the house.  Seriously!  How can I claim to be a quilter and not have every bed in the house covered?!?  In reading this (which I copied directly from Quilt Home's site) I think this is appropriate for a quilt:  COLLECTION: Pretty Potent. In the Pretty Potent collection, Anna Maria drew inspiration specifically from plants and flowers that are often used for healing. While they possess properties to heal our physical bodies, the very beauty of the plants themselves seems intended to be a balm for the soul. Potent and pretty.

What's in your stash?  Linking up now with Molli Sparkles.


  1. Oh goodness. I love me some AMH. That Banner Day print--especially in the pink!--just kills me with awesome.

    1. That is one of my favs too! I can see making a little girl's dress (maybe one for me, too!) out of the Eucalyptus print. The Family Unit will make an awesome backing!

  2. This is a beautiful report from the stash report, shirley reporting ! :) its gorgeous, goodluck..

    1. Thank you Shirley! It is a gorgeous line. Itching to cut into it but forcing myself to finish a couple of almost complete things first.

  3. I am not a die hard AMH fan, but I will admit, I am getting a FQ bundle of this range! It's the first time I've been really wow-ed by so many of the prints, and how they all work gorgeously together. I think it is the pumped up contrast that has got me head over Prada heels in love!

    1. Dowry and Pretty Potent are lines of AMH's that I love. True Colors is another. Head over Prada heels...hehehehehe! Great description!
