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!

Did Just that and free'd up some that were just don't knows, ended up some not so bads, and gave to charity finished the start of one, the second added some pieces to that were originally a vest piece, just so happened to match and were put to good use at the same time :).

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)
