    I'm working on a quilt for my daughter and SIL. Last night I showed it to DH and he said we should keep it for ourselves. Told him I can't since it's for their anniversary. So he says, "You should make one like that for us?" I immediately went online and picked out all the fabric for "our" quilt. But I didn't order anything cause I'm trying to stick to my commitment to use only stash fabric. Don't know how much longer I can hold out. :)

    It will be very hard to stick to your resolution when DH is such an enabler LOL :D:D:D

    Isn't there a byline that reads, "If DH wants you to make a quilt, the rule of commitment to not buy fabric is void and null?"

    This is soooo funny. I hope you will do what is right for you. I think I would have caved immediately.

    I am trying to use my stash or sew projects that are in my stash this year also.

    It needs to be a little farther along before I can share pics. He's also seen the pattern I'm working from so has an idea about the design.

    I had some running around to do today and happened by the fabric store. I feel off the wagon. So, if you do buy the fabric, I'll be waiting for you. Once you fall off, it's kind of like dieting, I already ate one cookie so why not eat the rest of the package.......... I'm not going to make any more promises to not buy fabric.

    OK, here's some pics. I'm making an Eleanor Burns Quick Quarter quilt. You need 24 fat quarters. So one pic is of my fabrics and the other is of the pattern. Hope I don't get in trouble for posting the pic from the book.

    My daughter and SIL visited Hawaii last year so I'm calling the quilt Trip to Hawaii. I had to ask some sneaky questions last night to make sure I'm making it the right size.

    My fat quarters lined up in the order I'm using them.

    It would take a whole lot less than that to push me off the wagon, sad to say! Hubs is everything to me, so if he were to say that he particularly liked something, that shopping cart would turn into a line on the debit card so fast your head would go round and round! :)

    I LOVE your fabrics for the Quick Quarter - I've been watching the Quick series on Eleanor Burns' web site - they sure look easy when she does them. She's such a genius at making complicated things simpler.

    It sounds like hubby gave you the go ahead to buy the fabric :D I would go ahead and get it before he forgets.
