Scrap Bags and Hexies

The last couple of months have been busy ones in our house and as a result it has been a while since I wrote a Sunday Stash post. This week I though I’d share a couple of my recent scrap bag purchases with you all. I’m a huge fan of scrap bags and have used them for many of my projects. I have yet to purchase one I haven’t been more than delighted with. When I saw that Southern Fabric recently had a Wrenly scrap bag for sale I couldn’t resist and I wasn’t disappointed. Although most scrap bags I buy usually contain wof strips of fabric this one was slightly different and contained 8 beautiful fat quarters from the Wrenly collection.

When I saw a post on facebook at the start of the week mentioning that there were Barcelona scrap bags currently for sale on her etsy store ZenChicQuilts I couldn’t resist snapping one up. It arrived a couple of days later much to my delight.

After a quick browse on etsy I came across Quilting Acres and couldn’t resist purchasing two scrap bags of their beautiful hand dyed and felted wool.

Unfortunately some of the order is now nothing but scrap 🙁 After a run-in with the postal sorting machine the beautiful hexies that should have arrived all neatly stacked and packaged

Those that have been saved had been stashed for future use, those that are beyond saving will still find a use as stuffing in pincushions.

The good news is that as this problem was purely the fault of the post they should be reimbursing me for the cost of a replacement order.

Linking up with Sunday Stash which this week is being hosted by the lovely Alyce over at Blossom Heart Quilts. Hope to see you there.

  1. Ugh, that’s awful about the hexies! That fabric is expensive enough without having it half destroyed by the post office. Hopefully you will get reimbursed though.

    I love scrap packs too – I often buy them from etsy shops or Hawthorne Threads or wherever… so much fun digging through to see what you get.
