    Biggest Stash

    Does anyone have a series of pictures of a HUGE STASH that was on the QB about a year ago? This lady's entire basement was filled with plastic containers with every imaginable type of fabric, each container labeled. I can't find the pictures and would love to have them again if someone knows what I am talking about.

    Thanks,
    Nolee

    The only one I remember is of the lady at Council Bluffs, Iowa. I went and bought some of her stash for kid's quilts and someone from down south bought everything else. There have been others posted on here also but that is one I recall!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Years ago I saw a pic, I think it was PatriceJ's stash in clear totes stacked 5-6 high, maybe on wheels?
    If you quilt fast enough, does it count as aerobic exercise? Bernice Manning

    I'm not an organizer....I look at those photos and think~"I could have made 10 quilts in the amount of time it would take to organize my stash". What ever works for each of us! No rules, thank heavens

    ok that's insane! When does she have time to quilt? I think she's a fabric hoarder, and a scrapbooker....quilter, not so much....IMHO.

    I saw a cute sign in my favorite LQS that said "She who dies with the most fabric isn't sewing fast enough"

    You know, I think having that much stash would totally overwhelm me, to the point where I would not get anything done. My stash is pretty small by this board's standards! I am a hoarder of fat quarters and charm packs, though.

    I don't care about someone else's organization especially when my organizational skills suck. Glad it works for her, I'd be overwhelmed.

    Weasly, on the other hand, has a fun activity room to play in.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    This is my stash.....don't laugh!!!

    Pitiful but true....there are a about 5 pieces of fabric that are going to be backing on quilts aready in the piecing process so those are set aside, but basically....this is it. The fabric on the top shelf left side are already set aside for quilts... cut 5" squares on the right are -I-Spy fabrics for future swaps. Second shelf are fat quarters for small FQ quilts because I don't have enough for a full size quilt, 4th shelf are miscellaneous extras and a Halloween applique quilt kit(I don't know how to applique yet). Bottom shelf has pre-cut patterns in baggies for wallets, make up bags, purses and zippered storage boxes in various sizes. Also some fabric given to me for a quilt pillow for my dog (the pink and yellow on the left side). There is about 3 yrds of flannel for sewing room curtains/valances. The words on the fabric say "Stitch in Time" which is the AKC registration name for my mini-schauzer baby - Stitchie. (She's lounging on the couch after a hard day of chasing squirrels and birds in the backyard.

    LOL, a friend who lives a few miles east of me has a huge stash. She put her boys thru school, got them married off and moved upstate so she could have more storage space. (slight exaggeration!)
