    Why not make a quilt of the fabrics you have in your stash? No cheating - you can't go to the Fabric Shop to buy more. Use up what you have. :-)

    I am trying to use up my stash which will take me another lifetime and just purchasing what I need to complete a quilt. Of course if something really speaks to me I will purchase it. Long ago I gave away tons of fabrics that I knew I'd probably never use to others who would have the joy of working with it.

    I do seem to buy at least some fabric for every project, but I do shop stash first. Some of my best quilts have been from using of bits and pieces and making do with whatever was in stash. So I think I'll hang onto mine for a while. :-))

    Some of my stash is a memory book of trips and gaity I discovered along the way. They may or may not make it to quilts -YET-But I will enjoy them while I can. Caution though, the colors that are in now may not be in , in 5 or ten years. Remember the dusty colors of the 90's.
