Waiting for me in my in-box this morning was an email from fabric.com advertising hundreds of fabrics for $4.95 a yard. I need more fabric like I need a hole in the head. $120 later (includes shipping to Canada), I bought 18.5 yards. Which for Canada, works out to $6.20 a yard and that's an excellent price. I justified it by deciding that I needed some colourful pink quilt backs for some baby girl quilts that I am making. I added some backing for baby boys, backing for a kit that I have coming in the mail, and a black and white stripe that I want to use for binding some baby quilts.
I've never subjected myself to a fabric morotorium, but I see that many people adhere to the "only buy more fabric if I need it for a specific project" rule. Since I know where all these are going, it's allowed, right? Because the armoir where I keep my stash is jammed and I have no place to store this new yardage that's on its way...I just want someone to tell me it's OK.
