 I am up to my eyeballs in stash! ! !

So beginning January 1st
I am going to try and NOT buy any fabric til
my birthday, May 1st.

 I will become a stitchin' bitchin' maniac.
My arms will ache as I try to keep my car
from turning into LQS parking lots.
Beads of perspiration will trickle down my face
at my guild show and tells.
Heart palpitations will happen when I see on-line
fabric store emails in my inbox!

  Sew here's where it begins...January 1st 
I have pulled fabrics from my stash to make 
at least one project each month.  

JANUARY -  Green Ghastlies - Customer Kwilt
FEBRUARY - Sister Ruth's Kwilt
MARCH - Hocus Pocus - Customer Kwilt

APRIL - Baby Kwilt 

MAY - 4 Baby Kwilts - Kwilting Retreat

JUNE -  Halloween Kwilt
I have the blocks (in my stash) from a guild challenge.
Can you say WILD AND WONKY?  
JULY - Halloween Kwilt 
AUGUST - Jelly Roll Kwilt

SEPTEMBER - Jelly Roll Kwilt 
OCTOBER - Christmas Baby Kwilt

NOVEMBER - Christmas Baby Kwilt
DECEMBER - Scrapfest (journal covers, pouches, mug rugs)


I'll keep you posted.  
This is what's up my stash!
What's up yours?


  1. well you are totally organised, so many lovely projects planned.
    Like you I have told myself no more fabric just for the sake of buying it because I like it but if I need a piece for a project that is okay! the only way to avoid is buying is by iot going to the quilting shops

  2. You go, girl! Looks like you have a great bunch of projects on your list. I will do my best to keep you on track.

  3. I feel for you and don't like to see you cry..... But I LOVE this post! It is great to see all your projects lined up and planned out for the coming year. Looking forward to seeing each one come together. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  4. Roll up your sleeves! Your in for a fabulous year of kwilty fun! I like the fact you've got a game plan. Do you think you'll be able to stick with it?

  5. I'm so joining you in this one and my birthday is April 30!!! So we can do this together. Yes we can! No buying anything. Ummm foes this no buying include Acquit dies as well? Only asking.

  6. You have big stash and I cannot lie!! That won't be true by the end of 2014 though :)
    I look forward to seeing your finishes.

  7. Wow that is awesome that you have planned the whole year! I have zero will power when it comes to fabric and sales! But I too hope to try not to buy any this year! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  8. Oh my goodness. No wonder you don't need to buy any fabric! You seem to have more stash than the LQS. Good luck using some of it up this year.

  9. Wow! You are really ready for 2014! Such wonderful projects and yummy fabrics :*) It will be fun to watch them come to life!

  10. Yay for stashbusting! I'm going to try to do the same this year, too much stash, too many UFO's and planned projects. I'll be following your blog for moral support!

  11. You and I think so many others are going to do this for the coming year. Me too, to a point. There are a very select couple of lines that I will indulge in but for the most part, I will resist. Good luck!

  12. Inspirational. Great idea. Love it. Well coordinate project kits too!


  13. What a great post and you seem to have lots of fun projects including quite a few Halloween things! Have fun and good luck with no buying! Thanks for sharing.
