Well this year, in the continued effort to sew from my stash, I decided it was time to cull the herd, finally cut into those treasured piles. First up, my Anna Maria Horner stash... which I've been collecting for quite a while now.
I always had a plan for this collection, a Quilt As You Go Herringbone quilt from the Maureen Cracknell tutorial. If you are regular visitor here you know I love incorporating QAYG into my projects. Its just so much easier to quilt big items when you break them down into smaller sections.
So I started cutting into my AMH stash and planned to work on the quilt at the MMQG Retreat this April at White Point Beach Resort. I did not take any other projects, just this one, I was on a mission!

I was planning to make a king sized quilt to fit my very own bed! I got to about queen size at the retreat and then I ran out of fabric, I had lots of wee scraps left, but at this point I think I liked the quilt just the size it was (plus my guest room could use some quilt love too!).

Come back next week to see how I fixed this problem and my treasured Leah Duncan collection get the cut!
Do you have a "special" stash you cannot bring yourself to use?
