Stash Reduction

One of the goals I have set for myself is to reduce my fabric stash.  I was looking for something the other day and realized I had several 5" squares from charm packs.  One of the ladies in the Jo Morton class had made a quilt using squares from a charm pack and this seemed like a good way to utilize some of the fabric from my stash.

While laying out the squares I also found fabric I can use for the borders.  The only fabric I will need to purchase is fabric for setting the quilt.  In order to restrain myself from purchasing more fabric, I will be wearing a rubber band on my wrist and each time I see a fabric I want to purchase I will use the rubber band to remind myself the goal is to reduce my fabric.

Naming this quilt is not going to be a problem--I'm calling it the Bepto quilt.


  1. Oh it's pretty!! Good luck with the stash reduction. I so need to go on a stash diet too -- of all sorts. It's so hard! So are you going to snap the rubber band when you think about being bad? lolol!

  2. Bepto--love it!! LOL I have a weakness for charm packs and am planning on doing a granny square quilt with a bunch of my Minick & Simpson charm packs. I have some French General charm packs and was thinking of doing a biggified Schnibbles quilt with them but now I'm thinking I might do a flying geese quilt with them. They'd be small and scrappy--could be fun!

    Enjoy your weekend!
