I finally, finally have the full line of Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics, in two forms!
I have two secret sewing projects in the works, which is fairly new for me. Normally, I may have a sort of secret sewing project since it’s a gift for someone, but these are two entirely new experiences. One is my Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt for the swap. It’s fun since it’s quasi secret, but peeks are allowed (and there are lots of them on Instagram). The second is a completely secret project, which you’ll get to see mid to late January. (intrigued? ;))
Either way, these fabrics came into my stash for my secret sewing. They are technically on standby, but I figured having them would NEVER hurt, since I’ve been wanting the full Botanics collection since it came out. As much as I’d love to buy a bolt of each, charms and layer cakes will have to do for now.
Look at those gorgeous colors! Oh, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to have these fabric packs in my possession, and I can’t wait to make something fabulous!
I also added little bits (a fat quarter and scrap piece) of these awesome fabrics to my stash. I gave in to an instagram destash by my Schnitzel and Boo group momma, Sandra at Small Town Thread.
I’ve been in love with the typewriters since seeing this mini made for Holly at Bijou Lovely. The bicycles are just too cute to pass up. I can see bits of both of these making their way into smaller projects, or as feature bits in larger quilts. I’m already plotting my first little project with them.
I’m linking up with Molli Sparkles’ Sunday Stash. What’s new in your stash?

Yup, absolutely right. Having fabric ready in your stash – especially if highly coveted by you – has never hurt anybody. 😉 I’ve been acquiring quite a few things like that myself recently and I refuse to feel quilty. I doubt I’ll be sewing much – or shopping for that matter – once the baby’s out but I sure want to be prepared!
Once again, Kitty, beautiful photography (always gets me). I too am in love with Botanics and have used my fair share. I try not to get too gaga over new lines but her Doe line may have to be an exception. I look forward to seeing your makings.
I love your recent acquisitions! Botanics is so great! I have fat eighths of the line but I think I should buy some pre-cuts in case it gets to be hard to find. Love the bikes and typewriters too! 🙂
I’m lovin these Doe fabrics 🙂 and now that you mention destashing, maybe I should destash….
I am definitely intrigued by your secret sewing. The reveal will be so fun! I love Carolyn’s fabrics, and I look forward to the beauty you will create with them.
