Show Me Yours...

Since I don't have a finish to share on this dreary Friday and I've been enjoying all of the stash sharing happening over at Sarah Quilts, here's a peek at mine!

I keep the majority of my stash in this monster shelf my husband built for me. And, no, I did not tidy before taking these photos.  Just keeping it real, folks! The hanging bits in the top right corner are pre cut pieces for a pillow.  I have another basket of minky on top of the shelf for making baby blankets.

I sort my stash by color and so far have purchased this way as well.  Although I think I may start buying some full collection bundles.

Blues (girly blues on the right)


Purples and greens

Yellows and Oranges


The last two pictures are scraps!  The top picture shows a bin of strings, a bin of larger pieces (around 5") and my unsorted scraps.  Bottom picture are all snippets!!  I also have a small amount of scraps cut down to 2.5", 3" and 3.5".  These are a lot emptier since finishing up Bits and Pieces and letting Ella use the 3.5" for her first quilt.  And then there is the baby wipes container holding binding corners and white scraps for my Up Up and Away quilt.

Also, this doesn't include all of my bolts for the shop which I am known to shop from :)  Oh my, I guess my stash is quite a bit larger than I had thought!!

Linking up with Sarah!


  1. Awesome! We definitely have some of the same stuff. I love your black and white collection I could use more of that. Your reds and oranges are drool worthy too.

    Thanks so much for linking up this is just so fun!

  2. Nice stash. Isn't it amazing how there are always so many scraps?! I'm noticing I almost have more scraps than stash, lol. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. I love seeing where other create! Really a great stash.

  4. Love you kept your photos "real". I don't think many of us sewers are tidy ;) Pink and blues are what I have the most of in my stash too so it's funny to see someone else also seems to have the most of those as well !!

  5. Your neutral basket feels like it could be a fabric pull for a quilt itself!

  6. totally loving your black and whites - and your purples and greens. who am i kidding, i love them all. and i could play in your scraps all day long.
