    I like this thought process!!

    I NEVER make this "commitment" as I am sure I could never follow it through out the year. (lol)

    Can not wait to see the quilt that you are working on for your daughter and SIL!!!

    Hit that submit button. After all, he did request the quilt. It is his fault.

    Sewing from stash is a good thing,but I didn't have any creams & I use them in nearly every quilt.Thousands of Bolts had a sale, & so did a LQS... I was in when we visited DD. What could I do? Now I have quite a stash of basic creams & pale beiges.Very yummy fabrics.Now I can sew from stash.:-)

    I think your anniversary is a very special event that would warrant a momentary slip. What is the time period for only using your stash? Would you actually complete the quilt after that time period is done? I think that if you hubby loves it that much and is requesting it that is special. It's not every day that we find that just right gift for our hubbys. I say go for it :)

    Love your fabric choices for this quilt. No wonder your husband likes it. I'd make his next!

    Get it while the getting's good! My DH wants me to make a quilt for our bed, but so far he hasn't liked any pattern I've shown him. I finally picked one and will start it when I can afford the fabric. I do wish he'd been more help though.

    I agree, if DH buys the fabric your wagon will remain intact! What an appreciative husband!

    I think you should buy what is in your basket. They might charge a restocking fee. LOL We can come up with all sorts of reason you should buy this.

    How many times do we actually make quilts for ourselves? I'd say buy the fabric and make the quilt that you know you'll both love.

    Life is short, buy the fabric. Then make two charity quilts from your stash. Everyone wins!

    Oh, yes, np3 is absolutely right. I mean, you can't stop your husband from buying the fabric, and if he gives you the money, you can go buy it FOR him. You'd be doing him a service. Look at it that way.

    I know, I know. I'm absolutely NO help at all! The more I say I'm not going to buy fabric, the more I buy. Ir's like the stores all know when I say this and collude to offer me deals I can't refuse. Oh, well....

    You guys are all sooooo BAD. I have classes at LQS the next two days, sure glad you aren't around to whisper in my ear. I'm a real sucker when someone else thinks I should buy something.
    I also think that there was an exclusion in our commitment that if someone else buys it, it doesn't count.

    You are a glutton for punishment - Unless you put blinders on How are you going to walk through all that fabric without buying anything.
    WOW

    I don't know about you, but if my hubby wanted "our" quilt, I would have ordered the fabric immediately...the pledge only applies to other purchases. 4 years ago, the doctor walked into my husband's room and said he would have to operate and only had less than 50% of making it. If he did, could suffer severe permanent damage. Long story short, he is still with me and has had some good times since then. He has never been the same, but has developed a declining "normal". We never know when we will be faced with such circumstances. Enjoy every day and every experience, we are not promised the next ones. Not to be morbid, just to say, seize the opportunity and buy your fabrics for "our" quilt. Don't feel guilty, this is different.
