    I think all the fabrics play well together. Love log cabins!

    I have been so bad that I quilt posting in this thread. I have increased my stash so much that I fell off the wagon big time to say the least. Four bolts of fabric, yep bolts, have been added into then new fabrics for class samples and Christmas presents. Oh goodness me, help!!!!!! Then I have to get some more to finish up the class samples. Where does it ever stop? Oh that is right, it doesn't.

    I do not count fabric to be used right away as stash, if it's needed for a specific project..Does that help?? LOL

    Hi,
    I, too, would love to make a flannel quilt...all plaids would be amazing. How about a one yard, 56 x 5" charms swap??? Anyone interested?

    I am in another stash busting thread on the MQResource.com website. I have been dutiful to report each purchase and bust. Well, I am still ahead of the game by 162 yards of fabric. I may have increased over 200, but still have busted that and some more. I am in the positive for it going out. Maybe in December when things slow down a bit I can get some of my UFOs quilted up and the block swaps done so I can bust some yardage. I have busted one whole bolt of fabric and almost a second of what I already got in a couple of weeks ago. they were needed for sure. I am making from scraps a dress quilt for niece which will bust a couple of yards. It will get better. I am making a project finish list for 2014 so I can make some more WIP and UFO progress with the last ones.

    I live in the Seattle/Bellevue Washington area. I am interested in donating large amounts of fabric to fabric lovers who make quilts for others.

    This quilt is foundation pieced on scraps of white fabric. I used only fabric that was less than 1/4 yard and wouldn't go with anything else that I had. It contains flame fabric from an apron made for my son, and fabric leftover from the 70's. I like how bright it turned out. All the fabric, batting and backing came from my stash so I was pleased to use it up.

    I made myself a new nightgown using fabric from my stash. It looks like heirloom fabric with chainstitched hearts and pintucks.

    This bag was made by my 11 year old granddaughter--the fabric is Laurel Burch and it all came from my stash. This is the bag that took a blue ribbon, Best of Class and Best of Show at the Fair this year. She did an amazing job.

    I started this quilt in 1971 and finally finished it this year. All the borders, backing and binding came from my stash. Guess I'll save it for the first great granddaughter!

    This one is my own design. I cut my own jelly roll from various grays in my stash but made it 3 1/2 inches wide instead of 2 1/2. Added a 3 1/2 inch squares between the pieces then designed the flowers and pot using fabric left over from a really bright quilt. It now has centers in the flowers and a pieced border using all the fabrics left over from the bright quilt. It still needs to be sandwiched, quilted and bound.

    I love fabric and enjoy making donation quilts, but I don't live in your area.

    Nammie to 7, that is a very beautiful quilt!

    I just did something similar with leftovers from a quilt for my niece. This top is 100% leftover pieces from two different quilts (I also pieced the back with leftovers from those quilts plus a yard from my stash) No new purchases on this quilt except for batting.
