    "until i have used up what i have..."
    hee hee -- anyone want to join a lottery to see how long she lasts without buying fabric? (All in fun, Pam!)

    Or ... I wish I had a dollar for every time I said the same thing.

    Very nice

    I recently whipped up 11 quilts solely from my stash. Theoretically I could make about 300 more from there.....

    I understand entirely. I am absolutely sure I could make a minimum of 300 from my stash, not to mention the two hundred I could make from my already ironed and sorted scraps.

    Quilting, isn't it a wonderful hobby? I just love it.

    Just when the dread, shame of having a large stash, the DH says "Get it"-he's my enabler ("Most often the term enabler is associated with people who allow loved ones to behave in ways that are destructive. For example,... ;)

    Hello and welcome! Great work, pam. I'd love to see bigger pics, especially of the middle one... :D

    Re not buying, I love what you are doing. I've just taken a smaller step in the same direction - joined the fabric moratorium on this board. Meaning I ommitted to buy no fabric for a year, unless I need a fabric specifically to complete a project I've started and don't have anything suitable in my stash. Doesn't it feel good to work what's already in the house! :thumbup:

    Welcome again, and looking forward to seeing lots more pics from you in time! :D:D:D

    I made 6 Quilts this year from my scraps. The pile has gone down quite a bit and I am still working on the pile of scraps. A Bargello quilt is good for using scraps.

    Lovely quilts and well done for using your stash, but didn't you know those scraps breed during the night!! However much you use you finish up with another bag/box of scraps!!!

    Very pretty.

    I said that I would'nt buy any more fabric until I used up what I have. Well you know how that goes. I'm back buying fabric, so I have even more than I had before.

    I collected a box of denim from my kids' clothes, etc. After I made 2 quilts, I had more left than I started with!!! I guess denim is one of those that breeds at night!!

    I admire you for wanting to use up your stash. Think what fun you'll have choosing more when it's gone :lol:

    Beautiful quilts...love the hearts. I too am having a moratorium, but only on florals (I have a lot). Thanks for sharing your beautiful stashbusters.

    Nice quilts. I wish I had the willpower to use just my stash. If I start sewing now... I would need at least four... maybe five lifetimes to sew up may stash. Maybe, I shoud find some will power

    Me, too! It is really hard not to buy fabric, though! I went into Joanns on Sunday to buy some batting and the fabric seemed really thin, so that was not hard not to buy any there!!!
