With the temperature tipped to hit 43 again tomorrow, the only frosty thing here is this selection of fabrics which arrived today. Rather handy, since one of the winners of my 1km giveaway happens to like Fairy Frosts!
And while we're talking about fairies, more of the Dance With fairies range arrived yesterday, too. The pinks, greens and a little of the yellow is destined for a bed quilt for my niece, which I need to start, and have finished in 2 weeks in time for her 2nd birthday party!
I'd thought there should be more to the range when I first saw it, but only recently managed to track some down. It's a new but rather elusive range!

And here's a peek at a quilt top I've just finished:
It will be put aside for a while now, so I can tackle my niece's quilt, and Eleanor's teddy quilt, which has also been waiting on the green leaves above.
I have spent the night cutting 5in and 6.5in charm squares (the former for a swap with the EB girls, the latter for my 1km giveaway winners) and still have a LOT to go!
Come back tomorrow for the winner of The Great International Stash-Busting Giveaway!
With the outgoings of giveaways, let's count this as stash-neutral ;) I doubt I won anything in TGISBG, as I had a nasty headache and was only able to look at and enter a few.

The sneak peak looks fantastic. Did you find it hard to press that white on white stripe fabric? I used that in my reversed applique snowflake quilt for the 4SQS Winter round and it was a pain in the butt!

Wondering where you tracked the more illusive matching Fairy blending fabrics? Do you reveal where your sources are? Do you shop online or in stores.
thanks. I found the fairies at
I love your color combinations. You have become one of my new favorites to read.
