Sunday Stash {Pips!}

It's still Sunday, right? Right, just barely.

The mailman brought me a fun little package from Fat Quarter Shop!
I didn't think the long awaited "Sherbet Pips" by Aneela Hoey came out until April but I did receive the email from FQS that they had charm packs, layer cakes, and jelly rolls IN STOCK!

What's a PIP, you ask? I have no idea. I tried to google it but nothing seemed to answer my question. Is it a monetary measurement? Or maybe its short for "Pippi Longstocking?" I imagine it to be a type of British candy, for some reason. Anyhow, I digress.

So I pounced on 2 charm packs (each pack consisting of 42 - 5" squares of the entire line!) Yes sir-ee Bob, I'm a happy girl! Now, if only the yardage were available... then I could make a major dent in my checking account~

I pulled my three fav prints, below... Mmmmm yummy!


Now the important question: What shall I create from these 84 squares?
A quilt, most likely... if the most perfect design were to cross my path.

Sherbert Pips are indeed British candy. And I am not envious at all of your fabric, no no no, not at all ;-)

In college, my roommate had a fish tank. The fish were named Penelope and the Pips. Penelope ended up eating all the Pips. I cannot get past this "pip" reference from my own life. Love Pippi Longstocking!

I love the collection! I don't have any, but maybe as a .. Easter present to myself? I think that's the closest holiday anyway.

Can't wait to see what you make!

I purchased this pack just the other day. I will be interested to see what you do with it. I need another playmat for my daughter, and was just going to sew them as squares - quick and functional. I am guessing you will be more creative?

I've been waiting ages for Pips to be released too. I bought two charm packs - think I will make a patchwork baby quilt for a friend who is expecting.

Let's go with British candy. That sounds fun.

That is COOL fabric! I hadn't known about this new gem of a line. Yay for you!
