Interesting discussion on Stashbuster about using *up* the stash. Having seen the stashes of some of those quilters as well as those on this Stash Quilt ring I’d say there is no danger for many of us of actually using the stash up.
It wasn’t until I started making string quilts for HeartStrings that I realized how little fabric it took to make a scrap quilt and how much of it I had not only in my scrap bins but on my shelves. I’ve come to realize that the best I can do is try to use more than I buy.
Even with all the string quilts made this year (along with pieced backings) my scraps are multiplying not being used up.
