Why do some quilt shops only purchase two or three fabrics in a line and say "you can fill the other requirements from our stock of other fabric" (that does not match or coordinate, IMHO) Yes, fabric is expensive for the QS owner but also for the purchaser. I do not want to go to three different shops to fill requirements for a pattern. Sorry for the rant, but this makes online shopping more and more attractive and does not keep my LQS in business. My current baby quilt (that I am going to start before this one is finished) requires 13 fabrics, all are 1/2 yard or less, except for the backing. So far, have been to three shops before being able to get what I wanted. Again, sorry for the rant, hope no rules are broken.
