    I read about a stash, but really how much is a stash? Do you have a style to building your stash?

    Style? :) not really.. I didnt have a plan to get a "stash" but I turned into a fabric addict and just buy it cuz I like it! I have so much that I just look at cuz it is too pretty to cut up! I am going to have to stop buying and start using or I won't have any more room for it!

    How much? It can be a little; shoebox? or totes full. (I have both; lots of shoe boxes and lots of totes.

    As I quilt, my stash slowly builds from each new project. I also will pick up a few yards of to die for fabric when I see it. I don't have a huge stash.

    I think a "stash" is anything beyond what you are currently using in a project.

    I buy what I need for a project and the leftovers get added to the stash. I also sometimes buy small amounts of fabrics that I really love. I like to do scrappies, so odds are good that what I've bought will get worked into something somehow! :)

    I have to admit...I am a quilt hoarder...I love fat quarters, 10" squares, charms, and even the 2 1/2" strips...I really started buying more of the precuts when I found out about connectingthreads.com...they have amazing prices, great service, and the fabric is very good quality...I just always think, oooh...that will make a pretty _______.....I also have inherited a lot of fabrics...so, I do have quite a stash...

    you almost made me spew pepsi on my screen! That just cracked me up. I have a feeling that is how I am going to be too. I am finding fabrics that I just love but no idea what to do with it yet.
