I get my choice of quilting magazines as a benefit of my job (independant magazine merchandiser) so I have unlimited resources for patterns. I love alot of the patterns I see but I don't have the time or money to go searching for the particular fabrics called for in the patterns. I know I can substitute, but I never know what to substitute with. I'd like to stay within my stash (I have tons of different fabrics)...so making the right choice seems so complicated for me. What do you do when you come across a pattern you like and want to do, but don't want to buy any fabric...how do you decide to substitute fabrics?
