    Do you think if we quit looking at new patterns we would be happier with the ones we currently have, and more likely to finish our WIP's and UFO's?

    Maybe, but we always need dreams and goals to achieve. And sometimes our abilities just "out grow" certain projects and we need to move on.

    Now, go wash your mouth out with soap. LOL

    If I stop looking at new patterns does that mean I have to stop playing with designs in EQ7? I'm afraid if we all stopped looking at new patterns it would disrupt the time/space continuum, not to mention have a serious effect on the economy. (Think magazine, fabric, notions purchases.) LOL

    I have so many sticky notes sticking out of mags and books it would take 3 lifetimes to even get started on them. In fact have them out on the table to sort through and come to some conclusions. Another stack starting in my sewing room to look through (heh heh ) and will go to www.paperbackswap.com to swap my done with ones for some new maybe ones !! gotta go oh and was you dreaming a nightmare with that question ?!

    Then we would have to stop reading posts on QB and looking at all the beautiful quilts others have made as that gives same inspiration as looking at patterns. I just don't think that will work at all ;)

    LOL ! I think I'm making a note under Proverbs 31:13 to read she looks for patterns and fabric and works with willing hands.

    If we were to quit looking at patterns....the fabric makers will STOP MAKING FABRIC....we can't allow that to happen.

    It's a quilter's job to help keep the economy going therefore it is our duty to look at new patterns. Further to that, we also have to help the LQS stay in business and keep their employers working. This keeps truck drivers delivering fabrics, notions, thread, machines etc. It's a rough job but someone has to do it, might as well be a quilter.

    "STOP" what is that word, what does it mean? Is that another crazy quilter's term? I know it's not in MY vocabulary...
