    do you....jump?

    I saw this gorgeous fabric for sale in a Charm Pack:

    http://greenfairyquilts.com/catalog.php?item=2526

    and I want to get it but have no projects in mind that would work with it, plus maybe I don't want a charm pack, maybe I want yardage and I should wait until I know. But I worry that it will disappear and I'll never find it again. What do you do when you're tempted this way?

    I think I might! I just bought a bunch of fabric for a baby quilt, but I think I like this better! I guess this is how one ends up with a huge stash, right?

    If I am still thinking about a fabric a few days after I saw it.... I take it as a solid indication it belongs in my project or stash.

    Yes, I think that's a good rule of thumb!

    I seldom buy fewer than 6 charm packs of a line, unless it is a close-out. I would definitely buy it!

    If I want fabric or quilting tool or book I don't ask myself if I need it and I certainly don't bother to justify it. Those days are long past.
    Got fabric?

    This Moda collection is for October delivery to shops. It'll be available in lots of place very shortly, I'd wager! Checked www.quiltshops.com and there is one site so far showing it; just give it a week or two, then you can comparison price shop, too.

    Since I have a project that calls for 9.5" squares, I figure it's just about ready to go!

    Green Fairy frequently sells their precuts at this price. One time it's layer cakes, the next time it's jelly rolls. I used to jump at the sales until I figured this out. Now I decide what I need, then wait for the sale. If it sells out, I didn't need it. There is always more fabric to fall in love with.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    When I'm tempted to buy any fabric anywhere, I remind myself of the 7 GIANT 107qt. storage tubs full of fabric in my laundry room, & go "shopping" through them whenever I feel the need to shop.

    I can never justify the cost of any pre-cut packages. yardage wise the price is outrageous..I want a lot more bang for my buck

    At this rate I'm sure I'll be there in a few years.

    Understandable. I was tempted to wait and buy yardage of everything but I think this will be perfect for a project I have in mind, so I took the leap.
