Sunday Stash #2

Sometimes I just see a collection of fabrics online and know that they are exactly suited to my style.
And that's what happened when I saw the 'Gypsy Girl' collection by Lily Ashbury.

I just fell in love with the colour combinations and their femininity immediately. Completely inappropriate for this time of year, as they are wonderfully summery and gorgeous, but I couldn't risk them being sold out, I had to purchase them there and then. 
I couldn't resist playing around photographing these fabrics, they really are a joy.

When I first saw these fabrics, I didn't initially realise that they were by Lily Ashbury.  I recently made a quilt that I named 'Vintage India' using her Trade Winds collection.
I think I am drawn to her vintage style and bold use of colour.  I am really looking forward to working on this quilt.  But it's going to go on the back burner until the Spring, I have a few 'wintery' projects that I want to complete first.
What fabrics and collections have caught your eye lately that you 'must have' and what are you going to make with them?  
Thank you so much for stopping by.
