Let's Bind It!
I know, now, that with the new fabric lines coming soon to the local shops, I must prepare. I tend to hoard fabric to the point that I'm afraid I will use it on the wrong project. I save and save, thinking that it will be the perfect choice for the next project. The only way I can justify buying more fabric is to use some of what I have first. Now that's one way to downsize the stash. If you have any great tips on reducing the size of your stash, please share it with all of us fabric hoarders. Personally, I could use a few more creative ways to downsize. I'm doing some charity quilts for a local hospital, but much of my stash isn't appropriate for baby quilts. I sure could use some more suggestions.
