    "worse-case scenario" is also how i try to think in order to get myself to cut up the lovely fabric i have.

    about getting started...how 'bout spending a little more time with the inspiration quilt. look at it. touch it. talk about it with the store staff. perhaps that might put some of your fears to rest. best-case scenario is that the store will still have the fabric if you feel you have made a "mistake" and have to purchase more.

    It can be hard letting go of what is familiar to us, there is a certain amount of comfort in what we know. Maybe start letting go with something a little less intimidating, like practice blocks and work your way to the bigger projects.

    I agree this will get you going!!!!

    I have been designing as I go with my quilts. I have to remind myself this fun and I let the colors and fabric take charge. I learn with everything I do. If I tried to stick to a pattern, I'd put too much pressure on myself to be perfect. I am having a blast.

    cutting the fabric the first time is the hardest with a new project. Once I get that done, I can roll along. Have fun and don't worry about making something bad. Its all good.

    Looks great so far... I'm sure you will have fun with it.

    I did a Turning Twenty for a Christmas gift and in July I had it all up on my design wall just the way I wanted it... since I live in two houses during the summer months, I didn't get back to my project for a few weeks.... only to discover 99% of it had fallen to the floor... I made myself crazy trying to put it back the way I had inially organized it... so I know what you mean.
