Stash Building

The Big Island of Hawaii - KonaRemember when I went to Hawaii and found out there was a Quilt Shop Hop happening while we were there. And we went to all nine stores, even though I was there in Hawaii… on my honeymoon…

I never got around to sharing all the wonderful fabrics and amazing stores I came across during that trek. OMG – that was so much fun! And I met so many great staff and shop owners – several whom I’m still in touch with via Facebook.

These photos were all taken a while ago but I think I’ve had to muster up the nerve to show ALL of this at one time.

Yup! It’s official.

I bought a lot of fabric. But these are great souvenirs/memories of the trip. Right?

So here they are in no particular order.

The middle fabric almost feels like a voile. So soft and flowy.

Do you buy fabric (or fibre) when you travel? I hope someone can help me justify all this fabric-y goodness.

    You got yourself some nice fabric! I don’t get to travel but when I venture out to a fabric store I’ve never been to, I like to find something to go home with me and help out a small business a little.

    I love you did this on your honeymoon. Quite funny! Yes, I will buy a little something if I can find a quilt store when I travel.
