Sunday Stash - Spoonflower

A lovely little package arrived from Spoonflower this week - containing some 'cheat' fabrics for my MIL's quilt.

She's a ballroom dancer (at almost 85 years old no less!!!) and I've been racking my brain of how to adequately depict this lovely talent - appliqué silhouette, paper piecing??  

Then a light bulb moment!  I wonder if Spoonflower has ballroom dancing fabric?

Silly question ... of course it does!

Find this fabric at:

Next, her birthday happens to be on Remembrance Day - so a quick search in Spoonflower (whilst I was there) came up with an abundance of beautiful Poppy prints ... I chose this one

Find this fabric at:
I'll fussy cut both fabrics and use these templates to frame them - easy peasy lemon squeezy!

So a bit of paper piecing involved - but nothing too major ...

That will be two more blocks of her story quilt complete - phew!

Have you bought anything from Spoonflower lately?



  1. Love the ballroom dancer fabric! Fussy cutting sounds perfect!

  2. What wonderful ideas! I have only gotten fabric from Spoonflower once - for quilt labels. Looking forward to seeing your progress on your MIL's quilt!

  3. Oh, how sweet! This quilt sounds like it will be fantastic! I've never ordered from Spoonflower, but that hasn't kept me from ogling over the beautiful fabrics available there!

    And thanks for linking up with me this Sunday Stash! :)

  4. This is going to be fantastic! I've ordered a couple of my own designs from Spoonflower before and just recently ordered a swatch of their new knit fabric... hoping it's just as great as the rest of their fabrics! Can't wait to see more of your MIL's quilt!

  5. Brilliant - love the fabric and your paper piecing idea! She's going to love it.

  6. Beautiful fabrics!! Spoonflower really does have everything!!

  7. Spoonflower fabrics are so fun as there are so many amazing ones to choose from that aren't available on the retail market. This quilt is going to be fabulous!!

  8. Spoonflower is seriously the most dangerous place to go! I always end up wanting so many things! And now... I want that ballroom dancing fabric. I love that shade of purple, as well. Beautiful! :^)
