    sounds like me..it is never what I want and I see too much when I go to the fabric stores..I need to stay home and use what I have on the shelves..and the way it looks I will be doing just that from now on..

    Just wondering how does a person get scaps? I am relatively new to quilting a few years but I don't have many scraps. I do save what I have but I guess I don't make enough quilts to get tubs of scraps. I am limited to what I can buy so just curious.

    Ha! I'll bet that there is one uneven strip of fabric lurking somewhere around your sewing space! By this time next week, it will have multiplied into at least 25 pieces! It's never really gone. LOL!!

    Good for you, but I personally would have a hard time giving away all my scraps as scrappy quilts are my favorites and still want to make more.

    It would take three boxes of liquor for me to get through all of that................. :) :)

    Good for you. I don't have a big stash, and I think I like it that way! I like to applique, so you need some variety. I have some fabric I bought a few years ago, but now don't have any desire to do anything with it. It is in my way!!!!!!!
