    If I see something I like I buy it and most times at least two yards of it.

    I don't have a project in mind at the time of purchase. I just see it, love it, and buy it.

    I usually buy the fabric, then figure out what I'm going to do with it. Cart <----- Horse.

    If I'm following a pattern I will round it up by a 1/4 of a yard, and if I'm designing my own pattern I just buy and hope I have enough. :roll: Sometimes I have to make some adjustments to my original plan. :roll:

    I always purchase more than I need. It great for my grand daughters to work with when they come to visit.

    I buy fabric on sale or clearance prices so I don't skimp on the yardage. If I mess up I toss it in the scrap basket and use it for something else later.

    I like having a little extra fabric. I buy what I like even if it is a little bit. You never know when that piece of something will be the perfect fabric pattern or color.
