Sunday Stash – my favourites

Believe it or not, I don’t have a bunch of new fabric to share today. Shocking, I know. Don’t worry, I’ll remedy that soon, especially as Collage has just been released.

So for guest-hosting Sunday Stash today, I thought I’d share my favourite part of my stash. Fabrics I use in pretty much everything I make. Fabrics that need to be added to pretty much every fabric order I make so that I never run out of them.

Fabrics that are Sketch and Color Weave.

Sketch and Color Weave

Sketch is by Timeless Treasures. It comes in really bright colours and the cross hatch (right word?!) marks are more obvious than Colour Weave. I have a bit of a collection.

Sketch Brights

Which I recently added to with a variety of browns for when I piece my LEGO Star Wars Chewbacca block.


Color Weave by P&B Textiles are a bit more muted in colour, and the lines aren’t quite so defined. Still pretty though.

Color Weave

I particularly love these fabrics for paper piecing. They add a really nice texture and dimension to blocks. Plus! No need to worry about directional prints, nor fussy cutting. Bonus!

I love these so much so, that I am using mostly Color Weave and Sketch prints in my LEGO Star Wars quilt. They make especially good hair prints ;)

I tend to buy my Sketch and Color Weave from Fabric Shack. No affiliation – I just like their half price international shipping. Not always a huge range available but definitely a nice selection to pick from. 

So that’s me for this week! How about you? What’s happening in your stash this week? Share your Sunday Stash link with us all to admire!

And for the curious – last week’s most clicked Sunday Stash post was Linda’s from Sew Happily Ever After – sharing a pic of her stash!

Your turn!


  1. I love, love the Sketch fabrics too! I used the bright pink for a binding and it was perfect.

  2. Those are definitely some work horse fabrics that can be used in just about every project to add dimension and texture. They are some of my favorites too!

  3. Stash flashed! The sketch fabrics look handy, nice alternative to a solid :)

  4. I like those too. I found some local look alike. Not as pretty but still pretty good. Anyway no addition to my stash. I'm just trying to use up what I got.

  5. If you need some red-orange, I'm your man!

  6. I've been adding some sketch to my stash bit by bit too. I'm so addicted to paper piecing these days.

  7. Yesterday is the first time in 2 months that I bought any fabric ~ I had to get something for the back of a picnic quilt I'm making my son and dil. Everything I've made lately is with what I've got and it feels good to do that!

  8. Thanks for hosting! Love those sketch colours! I only have one, but I have birthday money burning a hole in my pocket... ;-)

  9. They look like very useful fabrics !

  10. I love Sketch as well for all the reasons you mention. Hope you've had a wonderful weekend. xx

  11. The sketch patterns are quickly becoming favorites of mine too! They are great for bee blocks.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every word! I'll do my best to reply to them either via email or here on the blog, when time permits!
