Totally Useless Stash!

Simply Sophisticated BOM makers, please post your finished blocks HERE or email me to be entered into the drawing for the gift certificate generously donated by The Fat Quarter Shop!


I'm futzing with the fabrics for Judy's QuiltAlong. I have switched out a couple of fabrics, and I'm ready to commit to these except for one color.

I have NO yellow in my stash! I found two pieces, both just teeny cuts. How did that happen? I LOVE yellow. My stripes have yellow in them, so I need yellow.

There are a couple of yellow with tone-on-tone flowers in the Pandolph closet, but they're all wrong for this quilt. They're the yellows in Judy's Star BOM.

This is bad, folks!

Seriously, for all the fabric I own, my stash is sometimes totally useless!



I got out of the shower, and this yellow thing was really bugging me. I went back in the stash room, and guess what was sitting right there? A tub of yellow fabrics.

My apologizes to my stash.........

That is alot of yellow or gold. Will any of them work? This is such a beautiful quilt Can't wait to see what you eliminate.

I don't have much of that color either, that's what I went to Ginger's for the other day, just a bright cheery lemon yellow that I'm using for these windmills I'm doing. But I know what you mean, I have piles of fabric, but when I want something specific, I usually don't have it. That's why I stopped collecting fabric.

have you ever thought of making a catelogue of your stash? the bigger the stash the more you need one of these, so you don't forget what you have.

Here I was ready to send you some of mine! I'm not a big yellow fan. Are you sure you don't want some? I don't have any stash busted yet this week. ;0)

I'm so glad you found yellow without me having to fly out there and help you dig! I knew there was some somewhere!

Karen said...

How funny! It would have been a good reason to add to the stash, though. You gotta have yellow!
