Barn?!?

As in a pole barn like you would find on a farm here in Ohio?

(I don't want to think of fabric stored in a bank barn like my Grandpa's in Indiana with a horse and sheep in the dirt lower floor and bats in the rafters.)

Patty, I don't know about you, but they can have my fabric stash when they pry it out of my cold, dead hands.

Yup, I'm right there with you!!   Just last week I picked up 6 boxes of fabric for Aunt Margaret!

But we needed to cut 400 8 inch circles, Christmas fabric, no problem!  My friend cut 117, I did 120, then another 160, out of our stash, rest was bought by the extension office (but I am cutting them)  Fortunately, the quilt shop has a Accucut (I think) that we put the fabric thru to cut the circles.

And I kept the triangle scraps,ROTFL!!

There's just no winning in the "getting ahead of the stash" race.  LOL

You are right!  Patti uses a lot of fabric, but she has the same issue I do....it comes in faster than it can be used up!  But she and are pass it around and around!  We have our give-to People around us!  Yes indeed!

I love the left-over triangles for corners of string blocks.  And just sewing two wonky triangles together to make a wonky piece for crumb quilting.

Like that is going to happen!  Like me, I think you have a SABLE.  And....you keep finding or buying more.
