Fabric: The Final Frontier
Well lately I have been conflicted. I love to quilt, but I can't afford to buy new fabrics. It feels like every quarter the cost of fabric only increases. So what is the solution? For me, right now I have decided to make a goal of using every scrap of fabric I already currently own. The only thing I really am lacking right now is solid colors, yardage for backs, and imagination. I propose that I will make as many quilt tops as I can possibly manage to make through the summer. This is not a challenge to whip out projects as quick as I can, but rather a challenge to use what I already own. This is what I have been trying to do with the stash reports that I have been woefully neglecting since Baby Girl was born. Plus, I already have a pile of projects to do already in the hopper and then there are so many quilt-a-longs one can try after that.
What are your goals concerning your fabric? I have been tempted lately to join the fabric swatch swapping train to add a bit more variety to my life (especially for the fabrics I bought way too much yardage). Since I forgot to charge my camera's batteries, I will be back tomorrow to show you what I currently have in the WIP hopper and which ones I plan to tackle next!
