What materials did you use? How to keep a quilter's stash from completely overflowing.

What are you most proud of? I probably have enough fabric to last until I die.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun collecting your fabric stash. Be open to ALL possibilities: recycling from clothing, buying at a quilt store, swapping with friends, buying online, and even inheriting from other quilters! I inherited both my mother and cousin's stash.

Hi ZaZa--So you actually LET people peek under your bed?! Every artist needs their paint palette and it's the same for quilters. Or, as i told my husband when he asked, "What's all this fabric for?" I replied: "It's the dowry for my NEST marriage!" He laughed but has never asked again.

Yea! I can now show my family that I am not ready for an intervention as this love of fabric and the subsequent accumulation of same is just perfectly normal and par for the course of a quilter! Mine however needs some serious organization. I am on my third "method" of sorting and still don't have it quite right. Fun though!

I love your collection!!! I'm slowly building mine, I just started sewing and quilting about 2 months ago. I'm going to work on getting my collection sorted like yours.
