Use It Or Lose It!

I know you'll understand if I admit to being a bit of a fabric addict and confess that my fabric stash is taking over my sewing studio...  and don't even get me started on my pre-cut problem.  They're just so cute and fun!  What could be better than having a ready to use piece of every fabric in a collection?

The problem is there's never enough of what you need and it all looks to matchy-matchy using just a single collection.  I never end up actually using them so I've come up with a plan...

Use It or Lose It: each month I'm going to choose a collection to use and anything left at the end of the month is going in a box for a giveaway.  To kick things off I chopped up this Rouenneries Deux jellyroll for a plus quilt.  I love this collection and it goes really well in my house but I need to move on:-)

Stay tuned and spread the word to any French General lovers, in early February I'll hold a giveaway for all my leftovers, including yardage.  How are you taming your stash this year?


  1. It sounded like you were talking about my fabric addiction too ;). So, true about pre-cuts!
    That's how it all starts for me. I am really trying to slow down buying fabric this years. Let's see how it goes.

    Love this plus-sign quilt. Can't wait to see it complete. Good luck!

  2. Love the pluses! I have a French General quilt I started two years ago with a Jo Morton pattern - maybe I should dig that up...

  3. I try to use my stash but the new fabric collections are so tempting! I think it is a losing battle.
