Quilts from Stash

As I said earlier - I have a problem. I buy more fabric than I use. I hope to change that this year - at least that's my goal. We'll see how I do. Maybe I can do better with everyone's encouragement!

In the meantime here are some of the quilts I've made from my stash.

I made this quilt for our bed in hopes it would shrink my stash of blues. I had 5 bins full! Even though this quilt is all blue fabrics except for the inner red border, and it all came from my stash, it didn't make a visible dent. Rats!

One of my Tangled Threads friends came back from New Mexico with a panel and two fat quarters for each of us. She challenged us to have a finished project made from them in 6 months. Mine just kept growing and growing until it became twin size. Everything the the panels and two fat quarters came from my stash. I pieced the back from leftover pieces from the front of the quilt.

Here is a little primitive quilt I made from my stash, and a few of the decorator quilts I've made entirely from stash.
