    Just wondering... which is more fun for you? Buying the fabric, owning (collecting) the fabric, or working with it?

    Considering the amount of fabric I have on hand, I've got to say buying fabric is the most fun. The second most fun is planning the quilt. Sewing the quilt must be third but finishing the quilt is the most fun in the end.

    Dreaming up projects while gazing at them... that's never frustrating, at ALL :wink: :D 8) :mrgreen:
    Buying fabric in person, love to touch them, line up bolts, FQ's, rearrange them...hardly ever frustrating :D :shock: :wink:
    Cutting and sewing....love to do that, but the frustration level varies :D :roll: :x

    Hard question for me. Buying is instant gratification.
    Collecting them is enjoyable for a long, long time.
    But I think pulling fabrics out of my stash and getting to put them together and work on them is probably the best!!

    i'd rather create any day.

    shopping for the fabric is fun but i don't come across that much fabric that i'd like to own.

    i went on a tour of the quilt shops in lancaster, pa and it was so sad - there was fabric for $2 a yard and i didn't like any of it - i refuse to buy fabric just because its cheap because i won't use it in quilts any way.

    Buying is a rush for me. I really love creating too, but I can't unless I buy first. :D :D :D

    I love planning out a quilt and picking out the fabrics. I love shopping for fabric but not so much the "buying" where money has to come out of my pocket. Internet shopping is so dangerous because its almost like not paying at all. At least until I get the credit card bill.
