I am so glad i got interested in quilting when I did. I have enough fabric (excluding existing started projects) for at least another ten to fifteen quilts. But I'll tell you, I go to the shows, I get ads from places like ChristaQuilts.com, and I am completely uninspired.
What has happened to Robert Kaufmann? He use to hire some of the most innovative designers like Sherill Kahn. Now, we get Starwars (how tired is that?) and a thousand theme designs all aimed at 6 year olds. Michael Miller? Him of Fairy Frost fame as well as many more lines... now, just nothing.
Here is the kicker... I am down to maybe $150 bucks in fabric purchases a year. usually only pieces I need to accent (or backs of) what I already have.
How do you get inspired with the selection of mostly retro and bland pattern fabric that most quilt shops and on line shops carry?
