Sunday Stash – Worth the Drive

Gretchen started texting me photos of fabric from SR Harris fabric outlet yesterday, so I decided to take a little road trip up there myself today. After a quick stop at IKEA to pick up a few things (RASKOG cart for her and some JANSJO clamp lights for me, among other things), The Pink One and I were off to the fabric store.

Here is just one wall at the store.  Perpendicular to it were several rows with shelves 2 bolts high.


In addition to quilting fabric, there is an incredible amount of everything – home decor, fleece, silks, just everything.

All the fabric is 1/2 off, which was a pretty good deal for most stuff.  For some reason, the solids were marked at $13.99, and at 1/2 off are still more than at my LQS, so I passed on one of the solids I had in my cart.

What I did end up with:

3 prints from Sweetwater’s Countdown to Christmas. I have a Jelly Roll patiently awaiting my attention, so I bought these ‘just in case’ I need them.  You never know, right?



I also picked up twelve 1/4 yard cuts of Aneela Hoey’s Sherbet Pips. The ‘little neighbor girl’ I used to babysit is due with baby #3 in April, so I picked these up in hopes it’s a girl.



My plan is to do the Cluck Cluck Sew ‘Road Trip Quilt’. It’s quick, easy, and super cute.  I once made a top in a day for a friend.   I previously made two Road Trip quilts for this mom when she had twins in 2013.  One for Audrey and one for Peyton:


It’s funny, I’ve told Gretchen that I don’t make quilts more than once per pattern because there are so many that I want to do, but here’s proof that I’m a liar!  And I’ve got #4 planned!


Not pictured – some 3 random blues. I have some do. Good Stitches blocks that I need to make that call for blue, and The Pink One requested blue fabric with snowflakes for her ‘Elsa and Anna’ quilt.  I wasn’t aware that I was making her an Elsa and Anna quilt…

I also looked for something to make hedgehogs out of, but didn’t find anything that screamed at me. And by the time I started looking, we had already been there quite a while and I was hungry, so that’s for another day.

Linking up with Molli…

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

  1. So worth the drive! I was too focused on the goodies to take pictures! He he – glad you called yourself out on making the same quilt more than once. I was just looking at a pattern that I have previously made and put it away! That is a good thing for me! I have plenty of patterns! Love the fabrics you purchased!

  2. Love those Sherbet Pips! Wish I had both an IKEA and a fabric outlet near me–but then again, that would probably be a bad thing in the long run.
    Thanks for sharing your fabric finds, and also owning up to having a “go-to” pattern. I think that’s perfectly fine; not every project needs to be a learning experience or bucket-list check-off.

    Thanks for sharing, I posted the link to the Road Trip Quilt on my latest baby quilt post — looks like the the pattern i followed but by a different name 😉 Both from Allison Harris! It was a great pattern to follow and I think I’ll be using it more than once myself!

I want to hear from you...
