    I don't necessarily consider the "age" of items in my fabric stash when choosing what fabric to use in a particular project. If it fits the color range needed and in general is an ok fabric for the usage it doesn't matter to me if its older than I am or brand new. In fact most of my stash is anywhere from five to ten years old and quite a bit is older than that. And I consider all of it fair game unless it is designated for a particular project.
    I am currently collecting fabrics for two vintage projects, a double wedding ring and a grandmothers flower garden variation, for which I want all the fabrics to be reminiscent of the fabrics in the ones I had once upon a time. So those will definitely not be using new fabrics. Will most likely use some that are probably really 70s/80s just because they look right with the older ones.
    And then there are batiks! Are they retro or modern or timeless?

    Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but, to me, calico is never out of style!

    AngelinaRN and mom-6, thank you for your words and thoughts regarding older fabrics. I do like the look of calico and made the twins dresses out of it for Christmas. It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie.

    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?

    Any size minimum?

    I'm going to do this this year. Need to reduce a bit--I have lots of beautiful fabrics, but they need to be used instead of stacked out of sight.

    Just found this thread, and I want in I am determined to quilt from stash this year, and do something with the dozen or so projects on my wish list. And I just finished 2 tops this week completely from stash (New Year's mystery quilts).

    current stash buster

    Here is my latest stashbuster. I was going to buy fabric (gasp!) for the setting triangles but found the blue in my stash. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunters Website. It's approx. 42 x 63 before adding a narrow border.
    I think the binding will be bright scrappy.
