Feeding My Posy Fabric Addiction


Lately I have been obsessing over Aneela Hoey's 2013 fabric line called Posy. Yes, it's obviously an old one - but it's so amazing! I cant think of another fabric line that incorporates these beautiful pastel Spring-like shades in such a cohesive way.

So, I found myself searching the #thegreatfabricdestash tag on Instagram (the best place to find OOP, rare, or just ANY fabrics you've been looking for.) I came across a particular person who was ridding herself of her entire Posy stash in small bundles at a time. I bought a couple, then went back for her very last set (a much larger one) a few days ago.


This past week I snagged a complete 5" charm pack, over 6.5 yards of fabric plus a partial F8 bundle ontop of the yardage and multiple fat quarters I already owned of this line. So now I'm pretty happy with my collection.

My next goal is to grab a few coordinating Bella Solids.


The only issue I seem to be having is that not one single shop carries all of the Bella Solids shades I'm looking for (If you know one that might PLEASE leave a comment and let me know!). It seems as though I'm only finding shops that carry one, or maybe two, of these shades which means I'd have to order from at least 3-5 shops just to get what I want and thats a lot of shipping to pay!

Side note: Have you ever used the Moda Color Palette Builder before? You simply upload a photo of a fabric print (or an entire line like I have here) and move the little dots around to match Bella Solids to your prints. You can add or subtracts as many palettes as necessary. I chose 7 here.

So, what do you think of this line? Have you used it before?

I must admit I did typically pay double for everything I bought, so I did not get these at manufacturer suggested price by any means. But to me, it was worth it ;)

  1. I also love the colors in this collection. I've been holding on to a layer cake for something special. Love the idea of adding in the pretty solids. I think Fat Quarter Shop is a good bet for finding tons of Bella solids.

    1. I'm going to have to shop around for sure I would love to make a quilt from this line with a few solids thrown in :)

  2. Oh, I completely understand! I've been hoarding my own stash of Posy for a while now, with no intention of destashing. I just recently added some coordinating blenders during a clearance sale at a LQS (Bark in Mint Into the Woods by Vanessa Goertzen for Moda and Designer Beads Lilac by FreeSpirit), though I'm afraid they may be as hard to find.If you check out the Palette Builder on the Play Crafts website, you can match Kona Cottons if that helps: http://www.play-crafts.com/blog/palettebuilder2/

  3. They're beautiful! Do you have a particular project in mind, or are you just stashing up?

    1. No particular project for now. Although, I did see a beautiful heart quilt made from Posy on Pinterest that I'm totally in love with!

  4. I had no idea about the Kona palette builder. Thank you for linking that for me! Posy is one of my favorite collections too :)
