    I think there is a reason why quilters are not rich.

    I think you may be right, I would have to move out if I had more fabic than what I currently have, hubby would pitch me and my stash out the door!

    I always buy a sampler of the new lines at CT. I can tell which yardage I want more of. It's cheap buying the sampler of either the stacks or strips to get all the fabric in one line. The fat quarter sampler is the best value for me.
    Got fabric?

    I got the new catalog too! I love the red, white and blue table runner kit with the stars. I might have to get it!

    I have limited money, but I am rich because I have a great GS who lives with me, a roof over my head, a full pantry, the sweetest BF ever, and a hobby that is my passion!!!

    I am stead fast on not buying anymore fabrics until I use up what I have now. I just need to figure out if I need to live another 100 or 200 years and how to do it.

    I just read through mine. They are so amazing with the fabric designs. It's such great fabric also.

    I'm adapting the "flag" quilt near the back (the flags on gray) to use up some scrap fleece--------one for my soon to arrive greatgrandson and the other for my soon to arrive greatgrandneice.

    I bought a collection of batiks a while back and I'm thinking I may make the stained glass log cabins on the back, too. But I want to use a black/charcoal gray for the black. IF I CAN FIND IT.

    Right, MadQuilter. I'm trying to talk myself out of buying the limited edition batiks. They're in my shopping cart, along with a few other things that I don't really need. I've been tempted to push the Checkout button a couple of times. Then I walk into my sewing room and see the pile of tubs I don't know what to do with and change my mind. But it's SO tempting.

    Me, too. Me, too! I think I'll get the star table runner. I have a lot of red, white and blue laid out now, and if I getthe kit, I can make a couple of them. My DH had the catalog on the pile of newspapers for recycling. Thank goodness I saw it before the stuff went out for the garbage!!

    Ugh love the botanical garden line... Hubby would disown me if I ordered anything else since I just got an order from them last week.

    I've not ordered from them before - how is the quality of the fabric? Is it LQS quality? I have purchased from Knitpicks and been happy, so I would hope the same was true of Connecting Threads.

    Have to stay within the budget but would love to order it even if I don't "NEED" it.

    Oh man, I wish I were rich! But then I'd have to add another room to the house to store all my fabric and supplies!

    I agree but then I would have to hire someone to either help me make things or do my housework... the second might be a consideration...if I hit the lottery.

    I love CT. I recently purchased a yard of 7 of the Soaked Fabric line. Can't wait to get them. I know who I want to make a quilt for with them, but don't have the slightest idea of what pattern to use! Got to finish the 3 I am working on now and start the next one before I can do this one. Boy......if I were rich.....I'd have a bigger sewing room to start with and the list goes on.

    They sell out to fast. Ive missed a couple of lines of fabric that sold out before the next catalog came.
    I really wanted the red quilt kit that was a couple of months ago but it sold out very fast and the fabric line also.
    The precuts of the neutrals are already gone except for the flannel.

    Glad to see I'm not alone. I ordered two of the star table runner. One for me and one to make for a gift. I just couldn't get to the Internet fast enough to order them!

    That sounds like a terrific idea, that way you can tell what the fabric actually looks like, although their pictures are usually very accurate of what the fabric looks like. Great idea.
