    A vicious cycle!!! Do you ever make more room?

    All of my storage space is full of fabric. As I use it, I replace that space with tops. As I finish them, I replace them with quilts. When I sell a quilt or give it as a gift, I buy more fabric. Does anyoneelse have this problem? Please tell me I'm not alone.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    Doesn't seem to me that you have a problem... You are using your stash and using that space it filled with a completed quilt. Or maybe that will be a problem... Soon you won't have room for more fabric. You will only have completed quilts.

    Works for me! It's only a problem when you stack it up the walls and call it insulation.

    I move my quilts out pretty quick. I am either making them as gifts or I donate them. When I try a new pattern it usually becomes a donation. I keep my space available for more fabric! I need to sew more to keep it moving!

    I am worse. I just keep buying more and more. I hardly ever finish a quilt or get rid of any stash.

    I don't think you have a problem at all. It sounds perfectly normal to me. At least that's what happens at my house.

    I was told that if the piles kept moving it was good. Sounds to me like you are moving from unfinished to finished and adding more to begin again. Sounds perfect!
