    whatever I can get my hands on! When I moved here from Ohio, my huge box of fabric(mostly scraps given to me, and remnants,) wouldnt fit on the truck- that truck was packed full! So I didnt sew/quilt for a while. Im up to about a shoe box size now LOL, but I've been adding whatever I can, lots of solids and vintagey type patterns that Ive been finding at garage sales. I walked into my first LQS, just got 2 FQ, but I wanted half the store LOL. Im really loving lots of Moda prints-so classic and I love Joel Dewberry. Doing lots of window shopping on Etsy!

    I need about 100 people to come help me. Any volunteers?? My husband is a fab cook and will feed you all hahaha
    Uh... sounds like you have so much "eye candy" there that everyone's appetite would be spoiled anyway, so your husband would not have to spend much time in the kitchen!
    Hahahaha. yeah, well I was on the computer a lot and you know how online shopping is so easy!! The heat was just awful so I shopped, quilted, and watched the Yankees in AC all summer :D

    As little as possible, as I seem to be drowning in fabric and lacking much motivation!

    I just bought some beautiful Christmas fabric from Moda at my LQS as well as some mottled "solids" to coordinate. I'm thinking I'll make a tree skirt for my little artificial Christmas tree, if I have time this year.

    I have been adding batiks , blenders, and am always on the hunt for great Metalics.
    FYI - it is getting harder and harder to find black/gold metallics that are not a Christmas theme.

    I'm trying to have discipline as well. Worked my quilt show this weekend and didn't buy a piece of fabric but eyed a few and may get them later at two of my local quilt shops.

    I am a sucker for fall prints and some Halloween prints at this time of year. I also recently bought some Christmas fabric -well, winter theme for a Christmas present.

    What I should be buying are tone on tones and blenders to use up some stash.

    I have been adding 3 yards each of blenders and batiks. I have lots of floral and tons of fat quarters but almost no blenders or fabrics that work well with lots of different projects.

    Kaufman has been doing a great job lately! Over the past couple of years, they've really done some gorgeous prints. I'm thinking particularly of their Asians and their Christmas collections.

    It used to be that only Hoffman did the traditional-colored holiday fabrics with metallic... but now Kaufman does them as well and they are every bit as wonderful.

    (I just wish Kaufman hadn't raised their prices. But that's a whole other issue!)

    I only wish I had a stash! I amjust getting back to quilting and have nothing. My husband is retired so limited (very limited) to money. I know God will send me an answer, He usually does.

    I completely agree! I was once just a Hoffman girl when it came to Holiday prints and metalics but the last few years more and more of my purchases have been Kaufman. ( about 75/25 with Kaufman getting the highest) They ( kaufman) have some outstanding prints. They also have a great batik line. But this one shocked me ....Moda has some great batiks as well. I had not thought of Moda and batiks in the same sentence but they have some outstanding batiks.
    The last great metalic series Hoffman had was the "Kasmir" collection. I was unable to resist this collection.

    I'm trying to behave a bit and have been good. When I do buy fabric (usually a sale I can't resist) it's blenders, white/neutrals, and some batiks. Something that I can work into my other fabrics.
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    Just received in $2.49 a yard polar bear, manitee, shark and penguin Timeless Treasures fabric from Fabric.com . I also recieved in the army fabric that I ordered from them. Originally I was going to only order the army fabric but when I saw the animal prints, some my favorites on clearance, well I had to order some for backing. I plan to make gift quilts from these fabrics using the animal print for backing.

    I am looking for chicken-y prints. I want to do a chicken quilt. Also blenders and tone-on-tones. Batiks would be nice, but am on limited budget!

    I love retro prints and have bought a few lately. I am refinishing my grandparent's dresser that has been in my basement for five years. When I emptied it to strip the drawers, guess what I found? More fabric (two huge drawers full) that I had stashed there when I moved into this house five years ago. I think I will remain on a diet till I make some of it disappear.

    I do a batik wallhanging for gifts and chairity auctions and occasionally add to that stash since the design uses the same color and type of fabric. Rather like adding yeast to the sourdough or however dourdough is made.
    I did pick up 50 yds of assorted seconds yesterday which will do good for crib qult backings.
    Otherwise, I try and buy only for a project.
