Promise to my kids


I just picked up a car load of fabric this morning from a lady whose mother passed away 5 years ago.  She had at least this much that still needed to be sorted and she said she would call me in a couple weeks.

When we left, my daughter asked me to please make sure I gave away all of my fabric before I died.  I'm planning on living until it is all used up, which might just take me until I'm 300.  It's a good thing I have a lot of quilting friends who are helping me use up the stash as fast as it comes in.  Well, maybe not quite as fast, but I do love having all of these choices for quilts.  Gotta dig through these bags and pull out the fabrics for a new quilt :)  And finish up all of my UFO's, so that my daughter doesn't have to deal with that either.

I agree with Mimi that this quilter is smiling down on you from heaven.

I do have a quilting friend that has volunteered to come clean out my sewing room and ensure everything goes to quilters/charity programs vs the trash. Sadly, I know of situations where some have dumped quilt stash into trash bins when they could be put into hands of good charity programs and quilters that would do good with it. So, I think we all need a designated "Stash Trustee" for such situations.

I have a friend who just died. I had promised her that I would take care of her Stash after she was gone. Little did I know how extensive her stash was. It really made me think about using what I have. My kids say the same thing about me - get rid of that stuff before you die!

It's always nice to see it go to a good home. My kids have said the same thing.
