    Aside from my sewing machine, everything I have (tools and all) would probably fit in one large rubbermaid container.
    And....you have been quilting for 1 or 2 months?? Just teasing. Ha!

    The truth is, I had more than that before I started quilting but just sewed. ;)

    Even with all we have, it always seems like we can never find the one kind that we are needing. I spent two weeks organizing mine and only got about half of it done, but I am enjoying looking at what is done. Just think, we could be drinking and smoking and snorting cocane, but we are living very healthy lives with our beloved fabrics. I stopped buying fabric a couple of months ago, and I can feel the withdrawl off and on. You only live once. So live it to the fullest.

    So right, seems I never have the right fabric for a project.
    I only buy fabric on sale unless Im making a quilt with a particular line of fabrics.
    Now Im running out of room.
    Walmart has been clearing out precuts and the cardboard that the 2 yd cuts are on seem to be perfect for storing fabric on. The ones at the shops are so big and bulky they take up to much room so have just been folding and storing in bins, works for me.
    Im rambling on and on, sorry.

    I'm new to quilting, but I just don't "get it". Are you eventually going to sew projects with all that cloth, or is it the fun of collecting? Or what?

    In any case, I would never have the room or the money. I've seen less stash in some LQS's lol!

    Dont all you quilters know that fabric breeds over night, well thats my idea any way.
    All my stash is in underbed roller bins, but I want to sort it, so that I have the panels in one box.
    Happy days to every one.

    My stash is actually tiny! But according to the 2010 Dedicated Quilter survey: (the dedicated American quilter)
    In the past 12 months, each purchased an average of 93.6 yards of fabric
    at a cost of $927.10 ($9.90 average price per yard)and On average, she owns $3,677 worth of fabric.

    No one wants to be below average! LOL!!
