Fabric Stash - Red Letter Day

I'm really not sure if this should feel like an accomplishment, but it does. I am now the proud owner of at least 1/4 yard of every print of Lizzy House's Red Letter Day - 18 glorious and gorgeous pieces of fabric. The colours, the images, the whimsy - I love everything about this fabric:

In the photo below, the colourways are Pond, Galosh and Feather, from left to right. Even those names are cute! I think my favourite prints are Walk in the Woods in Pond (green and blue trees on white), Ducks in a Row in Feather (small pink ducks on brown background) and Ugly Duckling in Pond (larger ducks on green). But I also love those amazing stripes, especially in Pond:

I bought all but three prints from various online shops based in the US. Then, the lovely Jenny from Cut.Sew.Iron.Repeat and I did a fabric swap and she kindly included some Stripes in Pond and in Galosh. Finally, I rang a quilt shop about an hour away and they had a few metres left of Ugly Duckling in Feather. I controlled myself and only bought 1/2 metre (prices are sooooo high for fabric here in Australia!). And that completed the collection.

I'm glad my son agrees with me that this fabric is special:

What will this fabric become? Definitely a quilt or two. A summer dress for my baby girl. Maybe a bag for myself. I can't wait to get started!


  1. oh yes!! super happy happy fabric. i have been browsing flickr for some ideas for my own stash!!

  2. Oh yes definitely an accomplishment! I love that line as well but can't find it anywhere. Can't wait to se what you make with it.

  3. I am a latecomer to Red Letter Day, but recently bought a few pieces and love it! I regret not getting more. And you aren't kidding--fabric is SO expensive outside of the US! I don't understand it.
