Quilting, rants and raves and I am sure I will talk to my grandson.

    You are so right, Nonnie — don’t build up your stash!! I wish I had heard that message 10 years ago. But what I did hear / read was HOW to build up your stash. In the back of my mind, I knew that wasn’t for me. I work better when I have just one project going at a time. But, the big name quilters were giving me “permission” to buy all this fabric, and, well, it was so pretty! So here I am now with way more fabric than I’ll ever need. And do I shop from my stash? No - when I start a new project, I go buy more fabric!

    I think the recession has changed the way people think about consumerism (for awhile anyway) and people aren’t buying as much fabric. Not so good for the fabric manufacturers and the quilt stores, but we were going a little crazy before.
