What are Stash Builders, you ask?
Stash Builders are fabrics that have one color and then white, or a tone on tone print. They are fun and functional and allow you to spread out a small amount of a focus fabric over a large area of a quilt. Brenda calls them Stash Builders, because they will work with a wide variety of fabrics, and be useful in many projects. That's the founding idea behind our monthly Stash Stack Club.
Let's view some current in stock examples:
|Dots on Dots from Dots Right from Marcus Fabrics|
|Savvy Dots from Savvy Swirls from Marcus Fabrics|
Other not your usual dots include Hello Tokyo's Sugio Tiles, Scrumptious Dot by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, Spot On Mixed Dots from Robert Kaufman, Dear Stella's Confetti Dots, and Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House and Bike Path by Alison Glass, both for Andover.
But blenders don't have to be just dots, they can be more complex prints, like these darling posies:
|Mini Posies from Pocketful of Posies for Windham|
Another type of blender are chevrons, like these zigzags from Moda's Half Moon Modern:
Other unusual stripes include Party Streamer from Alison Glass for Andover, Happy Go Lucky Jump by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, and Running Stitch by Patty Young for Michael Miller Fabrics.
Or checks and stripes, like these fun prints:
|Chalk Talk by Blank|
Another fun super skinny stripe is the Road from Road 15 by Sweetwater for Moda, and Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille has a skinny stripe on the bias.
Text prints can also work as blenders! Check out these excellent prints from Minimalista from Art Gallery Fabrics:
Here are more text prints! Alison Glass has a series of text prints on white backgrounds in her Sunprint collection.
Of course, it's hard to go wrong with a classic dot! I love Robert Kaufman's Spot On small dots, just restocked last week - with new colors like Coral and Kale and new metallic dots.
|Here are the bolts of metallic dots gathered together!|
