    Okay would anyone like to make a commitment to join with me and pledge to one another not to but unneeded fabric? Exceptions would be the "B's" binding , batting, and backing . It is time to use up the stash I have and use my money for other needed things..

    No WAY. This would be inpossible for me to do. I see fabric I want and I get it, even if I don't have plans for it YET!!!

    i will join....I need to get rid of my stash....I have been making pot holders, pillows...and now I will start on a few new quilts. In the future I am going to try and buy fabric for the projects one at a time...I found I was buying fabric with no plans and they end up sitting in the closet.

    I'll give it a try. I just found three projects all from my stash that I'm really excited about getting started. I may have to add to the three Bs though as I need just a little fabric for a border to tie everything together. I guess that makes it four Bs for me. LOL My goal is no impulse buying and whatever I get must be to finish something I've started.

    Nope, I can't wait to get "on the road again" and hit some fabric hops.

    I have made a promise to myself that when starting a new project I will consult the stash first and foremost and use what I have. Sometimes, I need to buy a blender or base fabric but I should be able to last a few decades on what I have. I didn't realize I had so much stuff until I pulled it all out and reorganized it. I'm also not buying anymore books or patterns.
    I think I can do this :)

    I have a very little stash and want to use what I have and start making scrappy quilts. I do want to buy with projects in mind.

    I'm in! I was looking through my crumb box this evening and really need to use up a bunch of fabric. That is my plan for the year, use up my stash.

    I don't have a stash; I have a fabric collection. I must buy more fabric to improve my collection.

    That is what I'm in the process of doing! I don't buy fabric except for whites or muslin...and I'm trying my best to use up the boxes of scraps I have!

    I can not join this year. I plan on using a lot of what I already have in scrap quilts. SO I may just buy some fabric if I see it. Maybe not. I may also do as another suggested and cut some fabric into kits. I may be having wrist surgery and won't be able to quilt.

    I'd love to join in. Had already made that promise to myself. Somehow, though, if I drive near a fabric store there is some kind of magnetic draw that pulls me in and to some bolt of fabric that is calling my name. I will try very hard to resist the magnetized fields. Jinnie

    I'm gonna try thats my plan anyway for the new year. The quilts that I plan to make this year Ive already bought the fabric for, and the backing. So unless theres a problem, i dont see a problem.

    Me too I am in I have too much stash and have to think about making it smaller. Although I haven't bought much in the last couple of yrs, I do buy some and I shouldn't buy any. Too much.
