Stash Developments

It's been awhile since my last stash post but for good reason I've been abstaining from buying new fabric. When I first started quilting I only bought fabric for the project I was working on, crazy right?! I'd see fabric I liked but pass it by because I didn't have plans for it then I heard about a "stash" what is this? A hoard of fabric you have that's just stacked up on a shelf yes please! Of course I already had some leftover fabric from projects but I slowly started adding to it I don't think I went overboard but my piles grew. 
It's so handy to have fabrics at hand to use for swaps or filler when a project is missing something but I realized I had precious fabrics that were sitting around with nowhere to go. There were new fabrics I wanted to buy and use what would happen to these older ones? So maybe I was over thinking things but I decided to slow down on the fabric buying front for awhile. 

 Now 4 months later I finally couldn't hold out any longer and had to buy just a few things. First was a little pack from Kaelin's destash.There were a few of the fabrics in particular that I really wanted the others will just be handy to have around. 
The main fabric was this Anna Maria Horner Little Folks Forest Hills Voile that I needed for a project I've been planning. It's so soft I can't wait to make a Voile quilt!

 Then from Cool Cottons this little stack: top a little more Lotta Jans Dotter Echo and second from the bottom as well, Timeless Treasures Graph Paper in grey, Summersville, and then the bottom Essex Cotton/Linen, I have been waiting to get my hands on for awhile. 

Last my happiest purchase a complete don't have any plans but too cute to resist fabric is Cloud Nine's Monsterz Mash. 

So while I have been fine not buying fabric there's still an itch that needs to be scratched every once in awhile. What new fabric additions do you have?

I've also stashed some goodies lately! I love the Monsterz print you picked! I just got the yellow raindrop one this weekend at Whipstitch.
