    I signed up yesterday. Been lurking a few weeks to see what this forum is. I like what I have seen.

    I have a big pile of stash but not all is really quilt material. All my quilt material has not gotten moved here yet. I have too much. I do make quilts of different materials. So I do need to use up alot of material.

    But I still buy a few pieces of special material. When the get some in it seems only one chance to get it. I am not getting to city much. Are the quilt blocks I have sewed be counted as part of my stash yet? They have to be set in to tops to make a quilt of them. I was trying to get rid of scraps before I moved and I cut little blocks and made 16 patch blocks. Lot of blocks sewed. I will set the blocks with slashing and some will have to have a border on each block to make it larger. I tie them. I will using material for borders and backs and slashing. It is piles up here.

    So guess you can count me in as I do not want to buy more material. I will try to limit my buying to only elk, deer,antelope and bear. Moose too.

    Anyone can play-- whether or not you're on a fabric purchasing moratorium.

    To qualify as a success, 90% of your finished project must be made from your stash. For quilts, this means 90% of your quilt TOP. (Although Challenge participants will receive extra points-- cheers and applause-- for projects that are 100% stash-produced.)

    "Finished" means all the way done and ready to use.

    Who's going to post their first "made from stash" photo?
    I have two questions
    1. Does "stash" count if you bought the fabric for a specific quilt?
    2. Does "stash" count if you raid your mother's that she inherited from her mother

    I have completed ONE quilt top this year (June) that I started when my daughter was 15 (she's 32 now) She chose the pattern and I bought the fabric... I had to buy the backing material but the batting is cotton that my mother got from my grandmother's stash.
    The 2nd quilt I'm working on is again one I bought the fabric for 17 years ago for my dd #2's quilt that she pick out the pattern and it's about 1/2 completed... goal is to have both completed by Dec 25, 2012

    I LOVE that blue/white one! I think maybe I'll do one like it in pink/brown or pink/gray or gray/yellow. I have those colors that I need to use and I really thing this design would look great for it. Thanks for sharing!

    I have finished 5 quilts this year. First was John Deere tractor quilt, I and bought the panel and appliques several years ago. Green material for back I had and the white. Second quilt was 16 patch I had sewed the block for out of scrap before. I set in blue slashing and white back. I had the white and blue. I have did 3 more of the 16 pathes same way. Nothing bought this year I was used. I am working on the 6th quilt this year. Better say working on the quilt top at this point. I think I have figured it out. 16 patch with smaller blocks and each block has white border and will be set with blue. The other have of the blue sheet. All my 16 patches the blocks were not sewed this year but all came from scrap I had stacked back for quilts years ago. Blocks are multi colored and none alike. I do not quilt and I have tied them. I did buy 2 quilt batts and used them. I had the yarn for tieing. Really I have not made any head way on this stash. I have got to do it.

    I am going to report that I used up at least 20 yards of stash this last weekend finishing my UFOs. So excited. But now for those scraps that have reproduced some more. I have six more tops to quilt that I had done. Guess we will be using up some more stash for sure. Loving getting it used so I will be able to enjoy some new stuff soon. Even my Christmas shash got used.

    Christmas Tree Skirt

    Stash busted. Quilted tree skirt made completely from stash (backing included)! No, I didn't finish it in time for Christmas. Yes, I finished it before the tree came down. Made from the remnants of many medieval costumes (we are Dagorhirrim!) Fabrics are crepe-backed satins and brocade, plus one mystery gold fabric.
