So far this year the only fabrics I bought were Thomas the Train and some other kid's fabrics for gift pillowcases for great nieces and nephews. Bought Moda cream muslin, 120' wide at about $7.50per yard, that's 3 yds of regular sized fabric per 120" yard. This is for quilt for DGD and her fiance as rest of the fabric for this quilt is from my stash. Also 3 yards of a nice blue for GGS's I Spy quilt - I have the I Spy fabrics in my stash but needed sashing, border and binding fabric.
I'm co-chair of my guild's Project Pillowcases and I satisfy my fabric buying urgers by buying fabrics for pillowcases using our budget money.
PS: I was at a retreat a few weeks ago that was held in a quilt shop workroom, the owner had some great fabrics on sale for $4 per yard and I resisted buying any as I really didn't need any more added to my stash.
