It’s hard to decide which is more exciting for quilters – the thrill of a fresh new bundle of fabric, or the satisfaction of finishing a project. Seeing the latest collections, filling a flat rate envelope and impatiently waiting for the postie. Or going into your local quilt shop, inhaling the scent of new fabric, running your fingers along the bolts, relishing in the crisp cotton, the rich hues, the patterns. The beginning of a project is exciting, as is the end. But somewhere in the middle, quilter’s guilt swims in a sea of unfinished projects and out of control stashes. It’s brought on by having more fabric than you can possibly sew up in the foreseeable future. It comes in the form of WIP lists that creep into double digits; or when you realise you’ve only used your sewing machine three times in the last month. This issue features tips on sewing your stash, a #sewmystash gallery and stash-friendly projects.
