My Son’s Fabric Stash

I recently shared my daughter's fabric stash, and today I'm sharing my son's stash. G is nearly 7 1/2, and January will be three years since he started quilted. He just finished his fifth quilt.

He's been quilting longer, so he's grown a slightly larger stash than my daughter. He's also picked out fabrics at quilt shops with me, but in addition to that he's shopped our guild sale table when he has come to meetings with me. He's been generous to share with friends, his sister, and me.

G loves animals, especially big cats. Some of these fabrics have been gifts. A few of them were made into napkins which he uses for school lunch placemats, and the dinosaur print was made into a pillow. He used those turtles on the purple background in his House on a Hill mini. My favorite are those adorable frogs! And note the sushi cat in the bottom right corner. Of course, both kids had to get some!

Many of these prints came from my stash. The top right two (lavender and mint) along with the butterfly prints above were from a bundle he won. The yellow brick fabric is leftover from my Wizard of Oz baby quilt.

G's stash has lots of random prints. He likes sports fabrics. Maybe he'll make a sports pillow  to coordinate with the sports quilt he just finished.

And last, but not least, G chose this yard of beautiful green at our guild quilt show. He initially intended to use it for his round robin quilt, but it didn't end up going it.

      Ha! He just throws them all in the bins. I smoothed them out and grouped them for photos. When he’s looking for fabric he usually just rummages through the pile or shops my stash.

    Your son has a great collection. Both of your children know how to pick great fabrics. I love those owls.
