I've been purchasing yardage in 2, 3, and 4-yard increments for about a year, and I have accumulated a nice collection. Also, I have a good supply of scraps in all different sizes. I have a couple of pieces of yardage, and yardage with some nice sized scraps that look terrific together. My dilemma is trying to find an appropriate pattern so that I can use them. I'm finding that it's much easier to choose the pattern first, then the fabric.
My question is how do you go about matching a pattern to your yardage? What is your thinking process when you do this? I can certainly add other fabrics, I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed trying to find patterns to go with what I have. I hope this question makes sense.
I made a New Year's resolution not to purchase any more yardage until I've used a good portion of what I have.
