    Biggest Stash

    Does anyone have a series of pictures of a HUGE STASH that was on the QB about a year ago? This lady's entire basement was filled with plastic containers with every imaginable type of fabric, each container labeled. I can't find the pictures and would love to have them again if someone knows what I am talking about.

    Thanks,
    Nolee

    The only one I remember is of the lady at Council Bluffs, Iowa. I went and bought some of her stash for kid's quilts and someone from down south bought everything else. There have been others posted on here also but that is one I recall!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Years ago I saw a pic, I think it was PatriceJ's stash in clear totes stacked 5-6 high, maybe on wheels?
    If you quilt fast enough, does it count as aerobic exercise? Bernice Manning

    There was thread last December about stashes... Could it be in here?
    What does your material stash look like?

    I'm not an organizer....I look at those photos and think~"I could have made 10 quilts in the amount of time it would take to organize my stash". What ever works for each of us! No rules, thank heavens

    ok that's insane! When does she have time to quilt? I think she's a fabric hoarder, and a scrapbooker....quilter, not so much....IMHO.

    I saw a cute sign in my favorite LQS that said "She who dies with the most fabric isn't sewing fast enough"
