Ok, I'm in...tried this a couple years ago but the wagon tilted going around a corner and I fell off. Working on DWR right now using batiks and know I need more navy for binding...that's allowed right? Seat belt tightly fastened this time...lol

I promise to try! I really need get in the habit of checking my stash before making a purchase and "Just Say No" to impulse buying - like "I love/want this fabric but have no idea what I'll do with it!"

I am so ready for this. Hopefully, by 11/27/15, we all will have considerable less fabric in our stash.

No fabric for me again this year. As a matter of fact, I'll probably give away another tub of fabric. I gave away about 150 to 200 yards of fabric in December. It was all 5 yard cuts leftover from my fabric store that I would never use and didn't particularly want so I took it to a combined meeting of two quilt groups and gave it away. I told them either take it or it's going in the dumpster. I have a ton more fabric in storage that I'll go thru this spring and I'll probably give away a whole bunch of it. I don't have the time or the energy to spend trying to sell it.

I am in. I have been trying to do this for 2 years. I have been doing OK with it. I have bought very little just because it is pretty fabric for 2 years. My stash is still out of control. One way to use up some extra is to piece your backs. I have found some interesting ways to piece them on Pinterest.

This is my first scrap square. Needs more pressing and to be squared. Only 40 more squares!

I need to be in , too. My stash is out of control. I used to work for Hancock Fabrics and it was easy to justify buying (I had a discount, I had to buy it before it was all gone, it would never be this good a price again...) Now if somebody would just start a thread that would kick me off the computer at regular intervals I would get something done.

I would love to join in also. I have made most of my 2014 quilts from stash with very little purchases needed to complete them. I sure came up with some interesting backs. I also made a full size one for myself (a rare occasion) out of combined starter blocks which I do to see if I like the block, fabric, and/or design. I am happy with it and had to call it my mystery quilt because it was a mystery as to how it would look with so many ideas that failed.

I am loving everyone's resolve. Helps keep me on track, too. Remember there are no quilt police on this wagon so if you have to jump (or fall) off for a 'valid' reason...no lashes from a wet noodle from me. If we all have fabulous stashes in our minds, anyhow, I am sure that there will always be something that we will be missing...like a certain backing, batting or just one color that we don't have. But just shopping our stash first is going to be the main point.
