It's the first day of Spring and I am thinking ....Christmas fabric. I want to know if you have a stash of Christmas fabric. I thought I had 1 tub and maybe a few bits and pieces scattered abroad, but so far, I have found 2 more good sized tubs and more than enough piles. And every time, I clean something else, I find a new pile. ( better quilt cleaning LOL)
I know many of my Christmas fabrics come from goodwill, but it is also hard to resist the after Christmas sales, sometimes, even, 90% off. My memory fails me, And I don't remember that I already have a lot at home. It seems to be the first fabrics people downsize to thrift stores. There has to be a way to mainstream it into the stash. It deserves to be useful. That is the old part of me talking.
I thought I would be dealing with red and green Christmas colors, but, oh no, there are blues
and blacks ( my favorite)
and even pinks
And I still love the 90s country colors.
Remember daisy kingdom?
I have vintage
I have been trying to sort it by picking up a piece, deciding it's fate, and cutting. I have 5 quilts I am cutting as I go. After I cut for that, I am cutting the remainder, if I don't want it, into 10 inch strips and 2 1/2 inch strips. If I still want it, I am measuring, marking, and folding it into a tub. I will probably be at this until Christmas.... of 20.....
So, really, how much do you have? tell me, and do you want to quilt along with me something for Christmas?
