    My guess is you will regret it if you don't. I would buy some - you'll be able to use it for someone if not yourself!

    Thanks for your encouragement, everyone! So far, I have bought a charm pack so I could pore over the fabrics and look at/feel them for a while. If in a week I'm still obsessed, I plan to buy yardage of my 2-3 favorite fabrics from the collection.

    I agree with everyone else. Life is too short to deny ourselves something of beauty. Also I agree with buying at least two yds. I sometimes look for fabric in my stash and there isn't enough for a project.

    Okay just so I could make an impartial decision I looked up this Posy line by Moda. How can you not get it...it's adorable. Perhaps a bundle of fat quarters or a couple of charm packs might cure your fix.

    I've bought many fabrics when I had nothing I mind, and then I hate to use it. Those pieces are usually my favorite and inspirations for quilts and other fabrics.

    I think you could make a charming table topper, or runner, tablecloth for yourself. Then you could see the fabric everyday. Perfect for spring and summer.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I just have to chime in here too. I recently found a line I liked from Hoffman Fabrics called Nature's Song on E quilter and debated purchasing it. It flew off the shelf in no time flat and I looked all over the web for it and couldn't find it. I emailed the vendor and they had reordered and let me know when it came in. They now have it in stock, but at the time I was so excited, I bought 3 yards. I figure even if I don't come up with a pattern to use it in, I can just get it out and pet it a little and enjoy just looking at it. I might not even want to cut it up for a quilt. It may be too pretty.

    Buy it. I would recommend creating something small for yourself...a small wall hanging, mug rug, journal cover, etc. It will satisfy the physical craving you have to create something with it.

    I have discovered Stonehenge by Northcutt. I absolutely love this fabric! I am making my sister a lap quilt out of it. I have several charm packs, fat quarters and yardage. Not sure what I'll do with it but just know I love the fabric.
