I was going through one of my closets looking for some of my old Disney stuff. Upon removing bag after bag of fabric from the tops of boxes I realized that I had another collection going.

Although I have yet to learn to quilt, all quilters have what they call a fabric stash. So I thought I'd share my "stash" with everyone.

I've been collecting fabric for years. I can sew a straight line fairly well, so I've made loads of curtains and a few simple tops for myself. Every time I see tiki fabric that I like, I pick up a couple of yards for the stash.

Although I don't have any vintage fabric, it looked like this one had been in the store for a good long time.


I used this to for the curtains in my guest bathroom.


Found this one years ago at a Tiki Farm parking lot sale.


I bought this a few years ago when I accompanied my sister on the SoCal Quilters Run.


JoAnn Fabrics carried this flannel a while back.


I think I found this one on-line.


I bought this at Tiki Time Fabrics just outside of Auckland. I found it in blue a few days later in Hamilton.


Some fabrics have a low Tipsy factor.


Others are a little higher.


I picked this up earlier this year on Maui.


Every time I travel, when I get to my hotel I pull out the phone book and find all the nearby fabric stores. Another from Maui.


I bought this on my first trip to Oahu. I left the Aloha Bowl flea market with about 15 yards of fabric. I bought this in green also.


This is a little more tikiesque than tiki, but I really like it.


Another on-line purchase.


I found this in LA a couple of months ago. It's really soft.


There's a discount fabric shop in Anaheim. That's where I found these next few screen prints.




I also found this busy design there. I bought it in blue too.




I found this on-line a while back and made curtains to cover one of my closets that doesn't have doors.


When this went on sale years ago at JoAnn, I think I hit every store in a 30 mile radius. It was about $2 a yard.


This is my all-time favorite fabric. I only have a little bit left. I've made a top and a skirt out of it.


I actually have plans for most of these fabrics. I've got tons of ugly vertical blinds that I need to get rid of and replace. I really do intend to learn to quilt also.
