So many thoughts run through my head when I’m sewing. Some of them make perfect sense . . if only to me. There have been times in the past when I thought if I had yardage of every color in a certain line of fabric, I’d never need to buy fabric again. The first time I had those thoughts was with Moda Marble. For some reason, my preferences have changed and I like a heavier fabric now. Not long ago, I thought maybe the Splash line from Blank Fabrics might be a perfect match but today, I decided it’s Dimples by Andover. I like that fabric so much.
There’s somewhere between 130 and 140 colors in this line. A color for every single project! Multiple shades for every single color! What if I used up everything I have . . ok . . maybe that will take 100 years and maybe by then Andover will no longer have the Dimples line . . but what if I start buying only Dimples fabric and what if I get every color . . maybe 10 yards of every color? Not all at once; not this year but make that my goal. Stop buying everything else except maybe a stripe every now and then, maybe a print I just can’t live without but for the most part, only Dimples! When I run out of that one color, order some more of just that one color.
Do you think I could quilt that way? I think I could! The big challenge is using up what I have so I can replace it all with Dimples! And, if I do that and don’t like that plan, I can just buy more fabric, right?
Back to trying to use up my stash!
