    How do you buy fabric: by color? by pattern? by designer? by impulse?

    never impulse.

    i start with price, then i typically like certain companies (bernatex, hoffman, kaufman, etc), then its pattern (i prefer more modern designs) then finally color.

    If it is to fit a need. I shop by color first, then look at the pattern, final decision is on price point.

    Upon first arriving in a quilt or fabric store, I go the sale rack first and find anything I like, then see what percent is taken off. Sometimes if you finish a bolt, you get even more off. If I really like the fabric and the bolt has little on it with the deal, I finish it off.

    Then, I go to the sections/colors that hold the collections I have that I build on. Examples of this for me are: Butterflies, Daisies, Black/White and Black/red/whites

    I always hit the brights because I love doing bright quilts. Then, I peruse the fat quarters for any that I absolutely cannot live without for my charm quilts.

    You just HAD TO ASK... didn't you?
