I’ll show you mine if you show me yours!

“You must have a lot of fabric” my students often comment. Yup. It’s known as a FABLE…Fabric Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy. Here’s some of it, more or less neatly folded after my last reorganization [there’s more non-quilt stuff and flannels hiding in a wardrobe in the basement]:

I’m challenging myself for the next six months to work ONLY from stash wherever possible. I’ll post an on-going tally of how much yardage I’ve used. Care to join me in using up some of your fabric rather than purchasing new? Drop me a line…I’ll come up with a prize for the one who uses the most yardage from stash before July. [Repurposing fabric as prizes counts as using it, doesn’t it?]

    I will join you in trying to only use from my stash. I would say giving it away as prizes or gifts would count since you didn’t say it had to be made into something and it’s reducing the amount you have in your stash.

    I love this challenge…maybe I’ll try too!

    Now I have fabric envy.
