When I started quilting, in earnest, about 10 years ago, I bought fabric with abandon. I went to quilt shows and on shop hops and bought things that I liked, just because I liked them. Now most of these were fat quarters, so the cost was fairly low. Somehow, I never did find a use for all these fat quarters.
I am teaching a workshop on "Open Wide Zippered Bags" this Friday. I need to get some samples done, so today, I was pulling out fabric. I went to that collection of fat quarters, and other impulse buys and choose a few for bags.
I actually would have bought more of this one, but they only had a fat quarter left.
Currently, I am on a fabric diet. I look at the fabric I already have, and only buy what I need to fill in the gaps.
I worked on a project on retreat, using my stash, entirely. Here is a sneak peak.
