    Ok, I find that every time I walk into Wal-Mart, I go straight to the fabric and craft section to look for new gadgets, tools and notions. In my down time (everything else has been done.. chores, etc.), I search for fabric / fabric combinations. I also delve into my graphics app and design quilts. Sooo... My question is do the rest of you quilters do the same thing? I will go into a fabric shop and just purchase fabric because I like it (like a kid in a candy store), with absolutely no quilt / home decor idea or design in mind. I always think, "I will find something to use it in". My fabric will sit there until suddenly something pops into my head. I normally let the fabric inspire me, versus planning something out. Sorry so long.... just wondering if all of this is common. :)

    Oh, yes, you are a quilter of the collecting sort! You have a great deal of company. I pick up fabric I like and try to match it up later (and usually do). It's called starting or adding to your stash!

    Wait for the housework to be done.... I don't think so.lol.
    The main reason I leave our home is to go over to the material souk to purchase more material.. You never know when you might need that particular piece....

    Oh yes I get cold sweats palms shake if I am not on the computer purchasing something. Now my supplier has taken a break to quilt!!! How could she :) Just kidding. I have a bucket of fabric just for me and only me for a quilt I am going to make one day.
