    I know this has been discussed before, but at that time I had no stash, but NOW - my granddaughter brought me two large
    trash bags chuck full of material !!! Some of it is not usable, but so much is, that I feel overwhelmed. I folded each piece carefully and am storing it in a large plastic basket. I finally feel like I am a "quilter"

    That is wonderful. A friend of mine, who doesn't sew, brought me 2 pkg's of batting on Sat. Seems her neighbor is moving and putting stuff out on the trash and my friend dug thru it and found these 2 pkgs. They have been opened and used but still plenty for small projects. This week has been like Christmas for me!

    My sister's church quilting ladies disbanded a couple years ago and this past month they offered their "stash" to anyone who wanted it. Several people looked it over and took one or two pieces of material but left about12-15 boxes of various sizes, so my sisters who were doing the cleaning had to get rid of it. Guess who they brought it to???? ME!!! I have several boxes of already cut blocks of double knits of various sizes plus material needing to be cut! I'm in heaven....now to find a place for it!! Hubby doesn't think I'm so lucky cuz he knows he'll have to carry it upstairs!! :D

    What in the bag is not "Usable" there are some projects where you can use non quilting fabric. I try to think of these projects when attempti ng to discard unwanted fabric.
    For instance: Heavier fabric can be used to make shorts to go overseas (similar to the Little Dresses project). There is another project called "Ugly Quilts". These are sleeping bags for the homeless and the organization suggest all kinds of otherwise usable fabric (decorator,heavier).
    I recently had some strips from cutting fleese blankets and I serged the edges for winter scarves.
    I know it takes time to do this but when I have at least 1/2 yd left from a project and I know I won't use it, I make a Little Dress. Even have sewed pieces together to make it long enough.
