    I have established my own fabric museum. It is cuts of fabric that are just too beautiful/special to cut into. Oh I buy them with every intention of using them but ..... when the sissors or rotary cutter is in my hand ..... I just can not do it. And... it feels as though no project will ever be "worthy" of such a magnificant fabric.
    The "museum" has gotten a bit larger over the years , and a few pieces have lost there "museum" status. My question(s) is What's in your museum? and what is the oldest piece, and how did it arrive at its special status in your stash? Under what circumstances would you actually cut into the piece(s)?

    I have indeed hope these "show up". Many more but I do manage to cut up may share of fabric.

    Tone took longer than I thought it would

    I can relate to that. For some I have found the right project, but I still have many I can never cut. I also find myself going into the cabinet and looking for a backing, but end up upset at myself because I find everything too beautiful for the back and want to save it for a front to be used "eventually"

    I have never seen quilts that are just soooo awesome. I would be way to scared to even attempt one of those. I want almost instant gratification. I like a challenge but that is way to challenging for me. Of course I'm only working on my second quilt. The one I am working on right now was challenging for me only because it's a queen size not because it's that intricate. You go girl:)
