Am I the only one who hesitates to cut fabric? It's like I just don't want to cut into that pretty piece of fabric for some reason. lol, yeah I'm a little crazy.
And am I the only one who doesn't really much enjoy that part of quilting... the cutting?

You are not alone. I have had some beautiful fabrics for years because I just couldn't bring myself to cut them.....

I hate to cut my Japanese fabrics. This is because most of them have such large designs on them that would be lost if cut into smaller pieces. I'm searching for a quilt pattern that will show them off.

I've had the same problem sometimes and I'm sure you're not the only one.

I'm the same way-

I love to pull out my stash and stroke the fabric. And I have 2 "collections" I need to make quilts from, but they are so pretty I'm worried I will cut it wrong.

Rebecca- I have a Japanese panel and some coordinates- same thing- looking for the "right" pattern. Maybe we need to make a thread for help with pics of our fabrics and someone can help us.

Until then, got some really cool Christmas fabs on sale yesterday at LQS. After stroking gently, I plunged in and cut them into strips for FDIL to make stockings and I made 2 sets of the cute criss cross coasters on another thread. Have enough to make some tablerunners and a few more coasters.

I love the quality of quilt shop fabric! (Am I a fabric snob?)

Yep, me too. And we aren't the only ones. The next time you are at a quilt store watch the other ladies who are shopping. Every last one of them will reach out to caress the bolts of fabric. It's like we simply cannot help ourselves, we must reach out and fondle the beautiful fabrics. :wink:
