Stash building #1

Tworzenie tkaninowego zbioru to jedna z bardzo waznych rzeczy, zwlaszcza jesli jest sie nowicjuszem w dziedzinie patchworku. Uwazam za fantastyczna rzecz, jesli jestem w stanie wybrac tkaniny do nowego projektu tylko, albo chociaz w wiekszosci z mojego zbioru. Prawie tak fantastyczna jak wybieranie tkanin, ktore do tego zbioru nalezec maja. Ale jak ten zbior stworzyc? I jak to tworzenie miec pod kontrola? Zwlaszcza jesli spojrzycie na ponizsze zdjecia…

Stash building is a kind of important thing especially when you are a new quilter. I find it so fantastic when I can pick up fabrics for the whole project just or mostly from the stash. Almost as fantastic as finding the fabrics I would like to add to my stash. But how to start building your stash? And how to control it? Especially if you look at below pictures…

Quilting economics by Lisa Calle (Vintage Modern Quilts)

Ja zaczelam od kupowania tkanin do poszczegolnych projektow. W wielu przypadkach kupilam cala linie badz jej czesc jako ze tkaniny pasowaly do siebie i nie musialam dodatkowo sie martwic doborem tkanin na wlasna reke. Mysle, ze wiekszosc poczatkujachych tak robi. Ale tak naprawde wybor tkanin jest niezmiernie ciekawy i tak wciagajacy, ze powoli zaczynam zamawiac pojedyncze tkaniny (nie cale linie), usilujac znalezc rowniez tkaniny jasne (nie tylko te kolory, ktore bym zamowila w pierwszej kolejnosci) – do ktorych naleza zolcie, pomarancze, czerwienie i fiolety.

I started with buying fabrics for the projects I already had in my mind. In many cases I have bought the whole line or just one color way as the fabrics fit well together and I didn’t need to think too much about choosing each single fabric on my own. I assume most of new quilters do that. But I find it so much more interesting and actually addicting to look at and pick up fabrics that I’m slowly moving into direction of ordering single fabrics from different lines, pushing myself to look for bold and bright fabrics (not necessarily in the colors I would use in the first place – yellow, orange, red and purple) as well as for my favorite neutrals. Hopefully you will see that in my stash building posts.

Od lewej / from left:

  1. Doiland Gloss in Plum – Indelible (Katarina Roccella)
  2. Floret Stains in Tealberry – Indelible (Katarina Roccella)
  3. Threaded Shreds in Dim – Indelible (Katarina Roccella)
  4. Flutter Folds in Ash – Indelible (Katarina Roccella)
  5. Ripples in River – Emmy Grace (Bari J. Ackerman)
  6. Sharp in Grey – Doe (Carolyn Friedlander)
  7. Stylus Text in Lagoon – Indelible (Katarina Roccella)
  8. Spirodraft in Ocre – Indelible (Katarina Roccella)

Wiekszosc tkanin jest ciagle z jednej linii – Indelible – ktorej jestem zdecydowana wielbicielka. Opisana jako “gdzies pomiedzy magia i rzeczywistoscia istnieje swiat nie do zatarcia. Znajdz ekscytujace graficzne tkaniny i stylizowane naturalne motywy w szarosciach, turkusach i kasztanach”. Wyobraznia, tkanina, natura, aplauz, zachwyt, cudowna kraina, czas, nadzwyczajny, wspomnienia, niezatarty, wolnosc to niektore ze slow wydrukowanych na jednej z tkanin nalezacych do tej przepieknej linii.

Most of the fabrics are still from one line – Indelible – which I adore very much. Described as “somewhere between magic and reality is an Indelible world. Find exciting graphic weavings and stylized nature motifs that ripple through colored depths of pewter, turquoise and auburn”. Imagination, fabric, nature, applaud, delight, wonderland, time, extraordinary, memories, indelible, freedom – some of the words printed in one of the fabrics from this beautiful line.

Katarina Roccella jest z pewnoscia na liscie moich ulubionych projektantow. Nioe moge sie doczekac jej nowej linii Imprint, ktore niedawno pojawila sie w sklepach.

Katarina Roccella is for sure on my top designer list, I’m looking forward her new line called Imprint that has just arrived in the shops.

Linking up with Sunday Stash at Molli Sparkles.

  1. You’ve pulled together a great bundle, and an excellent example of mixing and matching fabrics from different designers/collections. I usually take the mix and match approach too, it’s a fun way to put your own personal stamp on a project.
