Default Should I?

Our local fabricland has a sale on right now buy 1 meter get 2 free on a lot of their fabrics. Normally they are super overpriced but this is a good sale. However I promised my oh that I wouldn't buy more fabric until I've finished the quilts I'm working on, but I really want more fabric! Should I go ahead and get some??? What would you do??

I would look through my stash and see if I needed any backs for my quilt UFOs. Backs don't count on fabric moratoriums, right? Buy 1 get 2 free is too good to pass up for me!

Thanks for the tip, MeldMac ... if you "need" it, it's a great deal. If you don't and it's "inventory" then, perhaps stick with your moratorium.

I'm starting to think of my backing for my PC quilt, so this could be a good deal ....... IF I can find something I like.

How long is the sale on for?
And ... is this at Southern Ontario Fabriclands?

I've been on a fabric feeze since July 2012. I would break my non buying fabric streak in a heartbeat if I had this opportunity!

I have bought a lot of fabric on these sales at Fabricland. If you need or want it- go ahead- just be choosy about which fabrics you pick. Not all of them are good quality there, but you can find gems too.
