    If the price is right, like on sale, then I get 2-5 yards. And if it looks like it's at the end of the bolt I get that too.

    I only buy for the project I am doing and will add some extra yardage ( 1 yd or less) of the fabrics I really like. Its just too expensive now the buy just because I like it and may use it.

    Just today I bought the rest on the bolt, 5 1/2 yards of high quality beautiful fabric for $4.a yard on sale. This way I have enough to be a backing if that's what I want to do.

    If I really like it and can afford it, I usually buy several yards. Looking at my stash, I shouldn't be buying any, but I have a hard time just walking by!!

    If it's a blender (and I can afford/justify it) then I buy a couple yards at least. :)

    I'm like Bonnie trying to make the quilts I have all ready bought fabric for and only buying what I need.

    Will I still be saying this when I go to Amarillo in a couple of weeks? LOL
