  • Books, by far.

    —Kathy Gant on August 26, 2014
  • If this were a horse race, I’d say it’d be a tie at the finish line.

    —Mary on August 26, 2014
  • If you go by weight, my book stash is bigger, but if you go by individual pieces of fabric, fat quarters, etc. My fabric accumulation is definitely the largest by far. I love fabric. My books are my treasures also.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on August 26, 2014
  • While I do have a lot of magazines and books, my fabric stash wins hands down! Thank you for the bookmarks, now I have an excuse to go through all of them, again.

    —Dot Clark on August 26, 2014
  • It’s a tie!

    —Amy Cofer on August 26, 2014
  • My stash passes my book collection by a mile, or two, or three! I often buy books that contain patterns that are far too advanced for me, but they are such a feast for the eyes and often inspire a color scheme for a different quilt. But they don’t just gather dust on my bookshelf! I either gift them to a more gifted quilter, or sell them to a used book store so they can wait on the shelf for a new owner who will give them the love and attention they deserve!

    —Carol on August 26, 2014
  • Hi My fabric & my book stash is extremely extensive. The book & magazine stash is limited to being in 3 rooms .but my fabric is all over the house.

    —maggierose copple on August 26, 2014
  • My fabric stash is largest by far, but I have a fairly large quilt book stash. And let’s not even talk about my thread stash!

    —Elizabeth Perryman on August 26, 2014
  • By far my FABRIC and I love it all

    —Bessie on August 26, 2014
  • Thank you so much for the printable bookmarks. I will use them. I have an enormous book stash. My fabric stash is right behind my book stash. Yikes!

    —Janie on August 26, 2014
  • Fabric Stash wins. But you forgot about internet stash, all those pictures, videos, quilt ideas. The Big Book of Nickel Quilts looks so inviting.

    —Quilting Tangent on August 26, 2014
  • My Fabric Stash…but not by much! lol

    —Sharon Simons on August 26, 2014
  • My fabric stash!!

    —Nancy on August 26, 2014
  • My fabric stash is bigger than my book stash, but my book stash is growing, so they are about 1/2 and 1/2. I save all my magazines and put them in binders that hold two years worth. I have about 6 publications that I have collected since 2005, some are a little earlier. Add to that my book collection and there is quite a nice assortment of internet stash. Now I am loaning all this stuff to my friends and new quilters in my area.

    —Pamela Zajicek on August 26, 2014
  • While I do have a book (and magazine) collection that spans over 3 decades, my fabric stash far outnumbers my books. Theoretically, I could reduce my fabric stash to nothing (yeah, right). I will have my books till the day I die.

    —Martha on August 26, 2014
  • I have 96 feet of plastic coated wire shelving full of fabric and at least 2 floor to ceiling bookcases full of crafting books, so not sure which is actually "the most".

    —Ele Willard on August 26, 2014
  • ahhh! my fabric is comes in first butthen my book and magazine stash, then my thread stash and finally but not undersized is my "tool" stash! I have over run my stash!

    —diane on August 26, 2014
  • Definitely fabric. After several downsizing moves I decided that heavy packing and lifting was for fabric and e-books are for storing fave patterns. This is coming from a true technotard. One with a sore back!

    —Sue Artuso on August 26, 2014
  • Since I’m not really a quilter, but a dress maker, my book stash is not that great, but my patterns! I even have patterns from my Grandma! But… Since dressmakers use bigger pieces of fabric, my fabric stash is threatening to take over! Take over what? Well, the majority is in my project room (also called the family room, but it would be a tight squeeze to get them all in there…) I have a couch covered in projects and more fabric in the garage. As a family we collect books, but not a lot of sewing books. I have fewer sewing books than cookbooks.

    The fabric wins!

    —Mama2eight on August 26, 2014
  • In all fairness, I have to say that stack for stack they are pretty close to equal.

    —Priscilla on August 26, 2014
  • My fabric stash is far greater although as I work on decreasing it, and still continue to buy books, the two may become equal soon!

    —Audrey on August 26, 2014
  • Without a doubt, my fabric stash!

    —Virginia in AK on August 26, 2014
  • It’s close, but I think fabric stash wins. I usually try to preview a book first before I will buy.

    Grace on August 26, 2014
  • Definetly my Fabric Stash is bigger than my book stash!!! Can’t even compare, but Love them all!

    —Jeanette Spellmeyer on August 26, 2014
  • My Fabric stash beats out my Book stash! Is no comparison there…Love them both!

    —Jeanette Spellmeyer on August 26, 2014
  • MY fabric stash.

    —Jeanne Brown on August 26, 2014
  • It’s a toss up, but I think the fabric wins.

    —Cindy on August 26, 2014
  • Fabric definitely wins, but the books and magazines are getting out of control, I just can’t bear to get rid of them – I might someday get to all those patterns I have marked !

    —Sharon on August 26, 2014
  • Fabric stash hands down!!!!!!

    —Pamela on August 26, 2014
  • My fabric stash! But only because I don’t count all my quilting computer files!

    —Mindy on August 26, 2014
  • LOL!!! Fabric by a mile 😀

    Thanks soooo much for the fantastic bookmark printable. It’s going to be incredibly useful.

    —Kayt Deans on August 26, 2014
  • My fabric stash. I have so many books, but now I try to find a pattern on the internet before I buy another book.

    —Gail on August 26, 2014
  • Books, of course! With the crochet books my great-gramma used, to the latest quilt and crochet books from Martingale, I am never at a loss for inspiration. Now if they just sold time to finish UFOs…

    —Lynne on August 26, 2014
  • Definitely my fabric stash, but my book stash isn’t too far behind. LOL

    —Susan on August 27, 2014
  • I have about 250 books and magazines about quilting, but my fabric stash is much bigger. I quilt over 25 years and I collect fabric. I have fat quarters I bought 20 years ago and never used them yet. A couple of weeks ago I made myself a promise not to buy more fabric and to use the stash I have. Until now I have succeeded (I was on holiday !). I’m trying to be strong !!!!

    —Agnes on August 27, 2014
  • While I have a large collection of books and magazines, I have to confess that my fabric stash wins by miles. Trying very hard NOT to buy more fabrics and de-stash at the same time.

    —Miep Jager-Schiphorst on August 27, 2014
  • I have a lot of fabric, but pattern books has to outnumber it!

    —Linda Rupp on August 27, 2014
  • I have more fabric than books.

    —Linda Christianson on August 27, 2014
  • For as long as I can remember I have been nuts about the colors of fall leaves. I still collect them on a walk, always looking for that "perfect" one. My mother has told me that when I was little I used to do the same thing. I’m in my 50’s now. The problem is, when I try to create that same gorgeous look in a quilt I’m always disappointed- it just never looks right. I’m excited to use your tips and use a photo to guide my color choices and hope to finally get it right.
    Thanks for the guidance.!

    —D. Kirchoff on August 27, 2014
  • I have been culling my library, so I have to say my stash is bigger. But who’s counting! Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Evie H on August 29, 2014
  • By all means my fabric stash, however, not to be outdone…the book stash is a close runner-up. I use sticky notes to label my pages of those quilts I want to make. The problem I now have, the sticky notes outweigh the time, I have, to make quilts

    Years ago, my hobby was photography and I would take, especially autumn pictures and paint from them….this ended when former Rose Hill, MS friend stole all my cameras and lenses.

    Keep smiling,
