My "Stash"

This is my entire stash in a nut shell... I really don't have a lot of fabric extra. I buy for a project and if there is less than a 1/4 yard or fat quarter, they go into the scrap totes. I have two 1 gallon totes full of "scrap fabric" that I use for paper piecing. I have it organized so I know what everything is for. On the top shelf left are the leftover blocks from purple quilts and the fabric for coiled bowl or rug. The center is what is left of my purple quilts, only 10 1/3 or less yard cuts. On the right are my only two pieces of more than 2 yards, one purple, the other white.
The second row holds projects to finish, a bag, a wall hanging, and a tablerunner. The center are "good" fabric, from the quilt shop. The right side had fat quarters. In the center is also a piece of black fabric that is heavier and I intend to make a jacket out of it.

The bottom left has miscellaneous focus fabrics, the center are four baby quilts ready to be made, and the right are various cheap fabrics that are 1/4- 1yard.
That's the extent of my stash. I don't have a lot of fabric to just sew, I buy with the intent of making specific projects.

I wish that I was more like that! I just buy because I'm afraid I will run out of fabric! hehehehe! Actually, I think I buy alot of fabric because I don't live near a place that sells it so when I do go I buy alot! Sometimes like 50+ yards!!!!

I have a five drawer dresser unit full of fabric plus a massive box full of scraps and another with backings. I've also got a smaller drawer unit with various size strips in.
I only normally buy a metre at a time so I've a lot of variety there.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Very impressive! I wish I had that much self-control! I'm constantly buying fabric for my 'someday' quilts.
