Stash Busting Seems to Cause Reproducing...or is that shopping

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am trying hard to avoid buying fabric and focus on using up my stash.  All of the most recent purchases have been related to the busting part.  I am facilitating the making of quilts for HeartStrings with my guild - mainly for Quilts of Valor, and I am really gun-ho to make this an ongoing project for myself and others that care to join me.  However, each time I seem to think I am close to finishing cutting and sorting strings, I find that I am lacking one of the three color groups for my kits; or I am just a few foundation blocks short of another quilt;or I could use just a few more brights to make a strip grouping look even more cheerful; or I need one more back. Then I make up my mind to check my stash again where I have found many great additions to add, but if needed, I make a list of what I will need to pick up.  Because it is for charity, Kevin said it does not count against me, but the budget does take note.  After adding up my receipts, I have put myself on HOLD! 

Watch for more photos including finished quilts before the end of May!

  1. What is the name of your fabric shop, Robin? Do you have an address and a phone number for it?
