Having a huge stash can be a blessing and a curse. There’s no way I can justify buying fabric for a quilt when I have all the fabric I have. The problem I find myself facing is that it’s so easy to work off a whole bolt of fabric that I’m not using a lot of my cut fabric and it’s just sitting on the shelves while I go through the bolts. Quilts like the next one I’m making need 2-1/2 yards of blue and 3-1/2 yards of tan and 3 yards of burgundy and I don’t have those size pieces unless I work off a bolt. What’s a quilter to do?
I have enough cream and enough tan but for the burgundy, I’m going to use several different ones. I’ll use the one I like best for the border but each block will have a different burgundy . . kinda like I planned it that way.
The blue is giving me fits. I thought this was the blue I would use but it’s way too bright.
I want to use one blue, not a variety of blues. I’m not sure I’ve come up with the right one yet. Who’d ever have thought I’d have so much trouble choosing a blue? I’ll figure it out . . and if I can’t, I’m going to close my eyes and pick one because I’m fixing to start cutting!
