She suggested we go read Felicia's STASH LESS series in the third paragraph.
And so I went to read about ways to "Stash Less". It's a fascinating series and well worth the time to read each and every post!
One of the posts I particularly liked led me to the whole cloth quilt Felicia made. The idea is so creative and quirky, not at all like what I normally make. I am a 100% quilt-weight cotton girl. I don't use wool and I try to avoid polyester (except for batting). The thought of making a quilt out of linen never occurred to me but I love the drape of the fabric on this particular quilt. Felicia excuses her newness to quilting and lack of experience but I think that her amateur status is what makes this quilt sing.
I want to make a Kantha quilt and I have one all pin basted in the queue. I'll start out with the overall big stitch with different colors and different spacing but who knows where I'll go from there.

Here is a link and tutorial for kantha quilts like the one below.
I love blogland that feeds my need to learn and be exposed to new things.
Thanks Alla, thanks Felicia, for sharing your ideas with me and the many others who benefit from your information.
Thanks to all,
PS I think I might need to go to the bargain fabric at JoAnns and look for some linen.
