To Create a Stash

by Carol Coski, Quilt-a-way
as published in The Quilted Feather

  1. Buy fabrics that you like
  2. Buy enough to do anything you might potentially think you want to do with it.
  3. Buy a little more, because you know by the time you use it what you have wonít be enough and you will need more
  4. Buy patterns you know your family will simply love
  5. Always buy extra
  6. Did I mention to buy more than you think you will need?
  7. Sit down every so often with your fabric, and assess what colors/patterns/designs you need to compliment and contrast what you already have
  8. Buy the contrasting fabrics
  9. Buy the coordinating fabrics
  10. Buy extra of all of them because when you sit down to piece, you still wonít have enough
  11. Always buy enough backing fabric to back a California -King-all-the-way-to-the-floor-bed quilt
  12. Add a little more to that backing estimate
  13. Use backing fabrics that can be integrated in to other quilt tops
  14. Buy a little more to make sure you will have useable pieces
  15. If you see a pattern you think you might like in the future, buy it now before it disappears forever
  16. Buy a little more just to be sure you have enough for what you havenít decided to make yet
  17. Repeat above steps until there is no room left in the house for the inhabitants
  18. Buy another house and repeat above
