I Like Fabric

The year of 2012 began with the goal of using yardage from stash — sound familiar?  I think we all start the year with that same goal.  Then, a Quilt Show happens…

I have reported any stash updates since March, when I ventured out to Lancaster for the Quilt Show.  The end result was that I like fabrics.  43 yards of fabric, just from that one day.  I went to the local Lancaster shops and the many vendors at the American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show.  Amazingly, I bought for specific projects.  Granted, I probably now have projects that will take me into the next decade, but it is going to take me awhile to dig out of this pile of fabrics.

Also, I have been going through my stash as well.  I broke into my black-background-batik stash to start another Pickle Dish quilt {previous Pickle Dish quilt}.  I also have been plowing through my kid fabrics for numerous baby quilts.  Here is one shown in my recent post, Personalized Quilts.  Also, I started another Underground Railroad quilt {previous Underground Railroad Quilt}.  I will show pictures of this quilt in my WIP post for this week on Wednesday.  Also, I am at the tail end of my second twister quilt project {link to my first Twister Quilt}.  The general conclusion from this week is that I like fabric!

Linking up with Judy of Patchwork Times.

  1. You have a lot of fun quilts on your list. Doesn’t seem possible that your tiny little stack of fabric is 43 yards . Have fun and enjoy using your new fabrics.

  2. Considering what’s gone out, you’ve not done too badly this year.

  3. Wow! I am really impressed with how much went out of your stash! My projects are all smaller so to make a dent like that takes quite a while! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  4. This post is too funny. I love the way you show “fabric in – fabric out”. I too am trying to work my way thru my stash. You are doing a great job! Love your blog and thanks for visiting. Lucy
