Sunday Stash & More

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Sunday Stash post, or any post for that matter!  I’ve been slowly accumulating new fabric for my giant Hazel Hedgehog wallhanging and I finally have exactly what I need…

I decided to take a pic of The Pink One (fresh out of the shower) in front of this mega Hazel to give my non-quilty friends an idea of the size of it. Just a picture of it doesn’t do it justice!

The fabrics I added to my stash for this: Paradiso – Kate Spain, Kona Regatta (body), Kona Cloud (face). The grey and black were in my stash already.  I was so busy that I forgot to take pics of it before I started cutting. Hubby and I went on a little road trip for our anniversary a few weeks ago and along the way we stopped at a few quilt shops in Minnesota.  We stopped at Country Fabrics and Quilting, Mother Originals Quilt Shop, Colorz Quilt Shop/Cherrywood Fabrics, and the obligatory stop at Millie P’s on the way home.  My hubby is so great – I pulled out my phone while we were in Millie P’s and showed him a picture of fabric I was looking for (Paradiso) and he found it in under 5 minutes!

Hazel isn’t quite finished yet – she still needs her glasses, which I’m not looking forward to adding. Applique is not a strength of mine, and I find that it takes me a while to do it, but she won’t be complete without it!

This summer has been so busy – it’s out of control!  We decided to cancel our plans this weekend which allowed me the time to piece this entire Hazel and I’m so glad I was able to do it! I’m looking forward to finishing her up and hanging her in my office.

Linking to Molli today!

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

    HI, neighbor. Karen (Tu-Na Quilts) here from ND. Are you going on the MN quilt shop hop this summer? I went last year and visited all the stores you listed in your post. I plan on going again if hubby has forgotten that my fabric bill was larger than the gas, food, and lodging bills all combined.

      That trip was my version of the shop hop – my summer is so busy that I won’t have time to go when it’s actually happening. Have fun on your shop hop!

  2. Hazel looks awesome!

I want to hear from you...
