For anyone who wants to go through their fabric and get rid of the pieces that are over 2 years old... I think it's a great idea and I will send you my address!!!

I was thinking the same thing!  I have oodles of old fabrics that would love the company of other geezer fabrics....they can all live happily in my Senile Stash Manor!

I have lots of fabric older than 2 years old, and it still makes wonderful quilts.

Read about this fabric that sat for almost 10 years, it made a great quilt.

Tami Paul:

saw this on fb this morning. so pretty.

 

 

That is a gorgeous quilt!  It must have been a quilt that was donated to the Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project quilt auction.  I donated my MQ6 (Bittersweet) quilt to this same place, and it will go in their Autumn 2013 auction.  What a great cause, as are all such causes!

I actually just lost a childhood friend to ovarian cancer yesterday, and another friend a few months ago to the same thing.  Cancer is such a terrible thing...

Thank you Gina to contributing to a great cause.  I lost my grandmother when I was a child to Ovarian cancer and then in June I lost an aunt to Ovarian cancer she was a daughter to the grandmother who died from the same thing.  Ovarian cancer gene runs on that side of my family one of my aunts from that same side has tested positive for that gene and has had surgery to remove her ovaries she had a hysterectomy years ago but they did not remove them then.  I am  wanting to make a quilt to donate in my grandmother and aunt names to help raise money to help find a cure.

You're welcome, Christine.  I always feel good about donating many of my quilts.  I will definitely donate another one to this cause in the future.  I hadn't realized before how many people's lives are touched by this horrid illness.  And I am truly sorry for the loss of your grandmother and your aunt...even though it's been awhile, you never do get over the loss of a loved one!  That would be fantastic if you were to donate a quilt to this cause in their names!

Kathy:

OMG Maggie, if I got rid of everything over 2 years old, I wouldn't have much.  However, I have been cleaning out and did just get rid of a piece of wool that was left from when I made my boys matching suits.  Of course, that was 47 years ago!

Kathy, I about peed my pants I was laughing so hard. 47 years is a long time. It might be a record. LOL. I'm not going to worry about fabrics that are ONLY 7 years old. But I think I still have some fabrics from when my kids were growing up and the oldest is going to be 35 in November. Hahaha. Just think, if I hang on to them another 12 years .....  😉

I knew this would come up. I can't believe Nana and Gini didn't beat you to it!  I have a small fortune in fabric. I cleaned house when I got a divorce in 1999 and don't ever plan on  doing that again. Parting with the fabric was harder than parting with the husband. LOL
