    When I buy a fabric it's seldom out of true need. I have so much fabric that it is unlikely that I will ever use it all. But I still love to look and buy - it's chicken soup for my soul.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I have a friend who constantly says "I don't need any more fabric" She is serious and doesn't normally buy a darned thing.
    I don't even know why she goes "shopping" with us or goes to quilt shows with us. She is Debbie Downer.

    Me, too, Irish! Twice I bought some just because I liked it. that was 4 yrs ago and its still in the closet! However I loved shopping with my daughter for fabric for the one I'm making for her and will love shopping with my cousin for one she and I will make while she's here! (In both cases, they are paying!) I'd much rather go to the store to buy new fabric for a new project that to go raid my closet again.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    I seem to always need just one fabric to finish out a project, and when I get home with it I always seem to have at least 4 or 5. Do my needs grow. or do my "wants" grow?

    I have only to make it to December 31st, and I will have gone one year without buying ANY fabric. I did inherit some, and was gifted some by others, but for the first time ever I will have kept my New Years resolution! Yay me!

    Usually the ones that says they don't need any fabric when going on a shop hop are the ones who buy the most. Lol. Ask me how I know.

    Keep going! I tried that, but it's been a tough year with things happening in my family, so fabric therapy has been the way to go. I will try again next year.

    I've enjoyed reading these posts. I, too, make promises to myself about not purchasing more fabric until I've used (some) of what I have...yea, right! This summer when I visited my sister in MT(she works in a quilt shop part-time), I came home with MORE fabric...but it was on sale AND it coordinated with FQs and charms I have here at home, so I have projects I can work on through the winter! Right now I'm waiting for a call from my LAQ that she has 2 quilts finished for me...I'd had that particular fabric for a couple of years before I ever got at it, and there were enough remnants that I am making a smaller quilt for the little brother of the boys these completed quilts will go to.
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
