    I went looking for fabric for my brother's quilt that I need to get started on. $180 later this is what I came home with.

    I think that we should have a dedicated day that people post pictures of their stash.

    I can not afford to keep up with some of these stashes.

    I bought this fabric a couple of years ago and just love the design, so I found it again and bought some more.

    The first one is wide enough for a lap size backing for my military quilt. The second one is red, white, blue with gold sparle; good for a border.

    I had to "straigten" up all of my material today before I can justify going and buying more...especially since I am waiting for almost $90.00 worth to be delivered. After doing that - I still can't justify going and buying more matieral...which is sad! Cuz I love fabric shopping!

    Nice haul. Your fabric #5 - I love that fabric, as well. I also bought it more than once. I love it.

    Chuck, it's me again. I didn't see all the pics! I was kind of wondering how you spent that much but I figured maybe you bought a lot of yardage in the first 2 pics :D
    Yes, the best therapy out there!!!!!!! :D:D:D

    I read here that it's not "stash" building.....it's "fabric collections"

    You shop like me!
    I went shopping for 2 yards of something pink and came home with a whole bag of pretties. Budget? What budget?
