I have fallen in love with a few purchases of fabric I just can't bare to cut. One is just "quilted" using a walking foot.. yes, it is more like a blanket.. but some of the fabric is just BEAUTIFUL !

I love pretty fabric! Have a few pieces, just because they are so pretty, no plans to use, just so pretty. Maybe stretch and put on a frame and hang, yes maybe so.

collections are so much fun to add to ... and yes, when the right project comes along, it will be so much fun to make. No, I'm not a hoarder but a collector ... of fabrics, of projects, of ideas, etc.
