    Stash Buster Challenge (Go to your stash and make some cool projects)

    I know alot of you have so much fabric that your house is getting heavier! ha ha

    I would love to see what you can make by just using your fabric from your stash.

    This way you can make more projects. You can shop at home in your piles of fabrics to make some cool quilts. While you are at it you might find some fabrics that you forgot all about and now is the time to get your fabrics organized. Also use up your scraps and make some cool Crumb quilts. The sky is the limit in making creative quilts!

    Be creative, I can't wait to see the photos of projects that you are making? Happy Quilting!

    that is exactly what I am doing. I am making hot pads, oven mitts, place mats and table runners for weddings. So far, I have been able to do the kitchen colors with my stash. I love when people are registered at Walmart, Target, and Bed, bath and beyond, because then I can find out kitchen colors.

    Here you go, I just started a thread about crumb quilts. Scroll down and you will find some links for instructions and also some links to see photos of crumb quilts (crumb quilts are using up your scraps to make cool scrappy quilts)

    I'm doing the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt all from fabrics in my stash. This is the first time I've done anything scrappy and I'm having a hard time being spontaneous--I'm so anal I have to plan even the thread color!! I'm really enjoying it and finding fabrics I had forgotten about.

    I have been "thinking" about making a SoDoKu quilt using some of my fat quarters.. just can't seem to decide on my 9 FQs to use though. A friend of mine made one out of blue and white and it was beautiful, and I have wanted to try one since seeing hers. I didn't want to go buy more fabric for one, other than sashing, border or backing though. This may be just what I need to push me into working on it... not that I need ANOTHER quilt project to start. LOL

    I did this table topper, wallhanging, from my stash. I had seen this a as demo at my LQS and came home and dug the fabric out right away and made it before it escaped my mind.
