  DD#4 made me do it! That's my story and I am sticking to it. She was ordering fabric online and showed me some beautiful Moda Solids in Royal Blue, Lemon Yellow, & Lime Green. Since my stash is very limited in the area of solids and tone-on-tone, I bought 2 yards of each.
  My stash needs refreshing so I am not stressing. Besides, DD#1 has 2 quilts quilted for me so that is at least another 8-12 yds. The Green Zebra will be about 8 yards and Bella's Quilt will be about 4 yards. If DD#1 gets the red, black, & white quilt done, that will be another 8 yards.
   Fabric that has been used is showing up in finished quilts finally! I can tell the fabric is disappearing from my stash since space is appearing on the stash shelves.
  My plan for Paducah is to enjoy the quilts, tools, and people. If I do find fabric I can't live without (text fabrics, solids, tone-on-tones, sewing fabrics, and veggies), it won't bother me to refresh my stash. I have a veggie and Minion quilt, a blue and yellow quilt, a navy and lime quilt planned as future projects. The text and sewing themed fabric would become part of the KS challenge. I thinking the KS Mystery will become either the navy/lime or blue/yellow quilt.
  Next things on my list is to finish PJ's quilt and to make my secret KS challenge. Of course, I still have the t-shirt quilt, J&B BOM, and KS Mystery to work on not to mention Scrap Tease, Geema 18, and Woven Star Blocks to work on.
  Lator Gators. I have packing to do and sashing to get done.


  1. Congrats on getting into the black on the stash management front. You do have to refresh from time to time. Sounds like you've more to count as out soon, so you should definitely not pass up any love at first sight fabrics you see at Paducah.

  2. Have fun in Paducah! I'll be doing likewise....

  3. Great week for stash!! I'll be in Paducah too, but am not planning on adding any fabric.

  4. Sometimes you need to bring in a little new fabric to get the creativity flowing again. Have fun in Paducah. I'm sure you'll come home full of inspiration.
