Old fabric for a good cause

For a couple of months now I've been trying to figure out what to do with my "old" fabric. I really want to buy some of the new, modern quilt fabrics, but feel too guilty since I have an entire closet full of fabric already.

My first solution was to make quilts, hence the little log cabin quilt. I quickly realized, however, that there is not enough time in the universe for me to use up all that fabric in this lifetime. Then, through my way too frequent surfing of Flickr, I learnt about Quilts for Broken Heroes (see some Flickr photos here), a group in Maryland that makes quilts for soldiers coming back injured, in more ways than one, from the war.

So, today, a whole bunch of my fabric stash is off to Maryland to be used in quilts for a wonderful cause.

Have a safe trip, little fabrics!
