So, I've been thinking. Should I go on a diet? A fabric diet. I have so much fabric that I've bought with the intentions of making a quilt and haven't gotten around to using yet. Poor fabric is just sitting in the bin waiting to be cut and sewn into something wonderful. I get distracted easily so when some new fabric I love comes out I buy it and whip up a quilt top and the "old" fabric gets pushed further back on my WiP list. It's hard to resist the new fabric when I read so many wonderful blogs and everyone is making such gorgeous quilts with the current lines, I don't want to be left out. ha!
So, what if I don't buy any new fabric until I've used up my stash of previously purchased fabric? Think I can do it? I don't know if I can. Just the thought of not buying any fabric makes me a little panicky, makes my palms a little sweaty, too. I might have to work out a compromise. For every 2 sets of fabric I use I could buy 1 new bundle of fabric. I'll think about that. hmmm...how far into my stash would that get me?
I'm just afraid that the longer the fabric sits around without being made up into something then the chances it will NEVER be made into something are greatly increased. I don't want to open the bin and look in there and think "This stuff is not my style anymore" and end up giving it all away. yikes!
What do you think?
