I have yards and yards of fabric that is "cotton blend'- I am destashing my room and I came up with enormous amount of good fabric - does anyone have suggestions of what to do with it - I really would appreciate it.......

I think there are some that will use it in quilts. Put it up for sale in the classifieds and then you can clear it out and make a few dollars too.

I use lots of cotton blends for quilts. Nothing wrong with using them.

keep it & use it if possible. From the way the fabric lines sound we are getting a short end of the deal & so what if it's not 100% cotton. I used the blends from Wal Mart many years ago in my quilts & they are just as loveable!

Maybe donate it and get a tax donation and help others. Some charities and quilt guilds have volunteers/members who would use it to make baby quilts or quilts for women's and/or homeless shelters. And also make pillow cases..

I would donate it to a quilt guild that make quilts for charitable causes if your not going to use it for anything.

Donate to your local Project Linus!

If you contact the nearest chapter they would probably be willing to arrange to pick up the fabric from your home.

Their website address for additional information:
