    I love this fabric so much I don't want to cut it

    What a delilma, I do love this fabric I have had it for quite a few years, still i'm afraid i'll cut it wrong and
    mess it up. I just so much want perfection when its nearly impossible for me to achieve. I cant think of how many times I have pulled it out and looked pondered and put it back
    do you feel that way about your fabrics or do you just go for it.

    Happy Quilting, Sandra

    I love the pattern you have chosen to make with it, big enough squares to really show off your fabric x

    Yes, I have the same problem. I have two pieces--one is paisley and one is just a lot of green leaves. Can't decide what to do with them.

    What beautiful fabric. Go for it. Then you can look at it everyday when you use your quilt.

    I say "go for it!" I've got some special fabric calling me for my next project too.

    The fabric is beautiful and the pattern is too. The pattern is pretty simple and I don't see a lot of opportunities for you to "mess up". I think you'll enjoy the fabric that much more when you can wrap yourself in your beautiful quilt.

    Yes, but at some point you just give up and go for it. That pattern and those fabrics will be just too gorgeous to NOT get together! Quit waiting!!

    My problem is I usually only buy fabrics I love so if I didn't cut into them I'd never have a quilt made. I realized there is always more beautiful fabric to buy so why not make room for more.
    Got fabric?

    Gorgeous fabrics! I would read through all the pattern directions to make sure I understood everything before I started cutting. Then I would slowly take one step at a time and create my beautiful quilt. You can do it!
