Sunday Stash

Ok, it's about time I participated in the stashing of awesomeness! This year I have vowed to keep my stash under control and have done a decent job at cutting back the amount of fabric on hand. Over the year more fabric has been quilted than bought (hello motivation). This week has been an exception, I picked up these FQs at my LQS. Also, more damage was done at Sew Fresh Fabrics going out of business sale ... but those won't arrive for a while. After all, it was on sale. More on that later.


The funny thins is, the older I become the more of a minimalist I have become. Quite frankly, it's getting pretty scarce in my world and I like it! So unlike most quilters, the (small) amount of fabric I do have on hand is actually too much!  Right, I am an anomaly you can start the flogging right after this post. When I go through my stash and dig out boxes I just become overwhelmed, so I have learned it best to leave it all hidden away. 


Now, I need to get quilting on my WIPs so I can cut into these new lovelies. Thanks Molli for hosting this great link up each week ... of course I am linking up to Molli Sparkles :) The button was also added to my sidebar.  Yay, to new blog bling!

  1. Nothing breaks my resolve to pursue minimalism quite like the word 'sale'.
    Good on you for keeping the stash tamed and under control. Keep it up! You sound like a candidate to help Peter Walsh with a revised edition of Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? :)

  2. The fat quarters you picked up are lovely - and at least they are fat quarters and not half yards or yards of fabric! It can be really hard to resist a sale, especially from a business you love that is shutting down. I hear you on minimalism - one of my favorite things to do is go through items in the house ever 6 months or so to clean out and donate to Goodwill. I even donated a lot of fabric to a school for art supplies a few months ago.

  4. Definitely not a minimalist! Sigh - might be if I had more time to sew! Love your stash - red, Aqua, lime green - what's not to love :)

  8. I've gone a bit mad lately with fabric and actually find it stressful - here's to using it up and de-cluttering through making!
