    Do you buy fabric "just because"

    I went to Joann's last night to get the fabric to make my daughter's quilt (my 3rd project). They were having a sale on the Keepsake Calico fabrics and I had a 20% off total purchase coupon. So I purchased some fabrics that "spoke" to me. I have no projects in mind for them at this point.

    I'm wondering...does anyone else buy fabrics just because you like them?

    I wish I could post pictures...but it keeps telling me my photo size is too large.

    Yep. Most of my fabric I have is just because I liked it. Just bought 8 yards from Hancock's at 50% off. Have no idea what I'm going to do with it! :O)

    Certainly! It's no fun not to buy fabric when you want it.
    Got fabric?

    You bet! I love picking up something just because I like it. Eventually it will find it's way into the right project.

    No. Why would I do such a thing?! All my fabric is for a specific purpose. Each quilt is planned out to the last stitch.





    If you believe that, I've got some waterfront property for you in Arizona!!

    Yes, I do too. I used to buy in half yard lengths, then I went to one yard cuts, now I do five yard cuts when I find a really good sale. I use these for backings as I have way too may half yard cuts. LOL Now most fabric stores won't cut less than one yard of sale fabric. I have run out of closet space and under the bed so I have put myself on a no buy until I have room. I have some empty spots that are just begging to be filled! LOL
