    Sorry can't kick you. I understand. But keep saying, I will be able to use it when it is all finished. It might help you cut into it.

    I would kick you but I am having the same problem. I bought a big bunch of Lila Tueller fabric and it came all folded nicely even with a bow. And there is still sits. But it is just so pretty as it is. I hate to mess it up.

    Just as my dear late MIL asked me when I put up the good china because of the baby, "Who are you saving it for? His next wife?"

    Think about it. YOU get the good out of it...not anyone else.

    I have the same problem. There is some fabric that's been in my stash for years. I take it out now and then and pet it. I'm happy.

    JUST DO IT!!!!! Once you make the first cut it will be easier to cut the rest. Don't think about it, just grab that cutter and go.

    The pieces will be large enough for each beautiful piece to be recognizable but you will be able to snuggle with it! Go ahead and cut - you will be happy with the result.

    It's okay. Sometimes fabric needs to age a bit, like a good wine or a fine cheese.

    Go work on something else. But keep it where you can see it and fondle it. You'll know when it's ready to cut.

    It will be much prettier in a quilt than on a shelf in the closet. Cut it!
