    What a stunning quilt! It's a real show stopper & well worth using your "good" fabric on. To answer your question, yes, I have "good" fabric that I don't to use. Unfortunately, I only have a yard of mine & have had it since the 1990's (yes, I'm THAT old... LOL!). I bought it on a lark & then when I realized how much I loved it, I went back to my LQS & they'd sold it all. Waaaaaaaaaaah! So, so much for that. I just cherish what I have. Maybe someday I'll be inspired to use it to as fabulous affect as you did with yours. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous quilt with us!

    That is AWESOME. I want to make one of these, but I am afraid I won't pick the right fabric. AND, YES there are others like you!!! I love my fabric and sometimes just can't cut it!!! I like to look at it and touch it!!! (Is that some type of phobia???)

    After a near death experience, I say use the good china every day, and use your best fabric first.

    WOW. Isn't it wonderful when you buy that special fabric that "calls" to you, you let it "age like fine wine", then you are inspired to use it in that wonderful quilt?

    Any way....here's the result. Thanks for looking...hope you enjoy. It was also the first time I ever used black as my background. Stepped outside my box on that one! Glad I did!
    This is something I struggle with. When I find/buy fabric that I really love, I have a hard time deciding on a pattern. My hangup is that it has to be the perfect ONE! The anxiety to get it exactly "right" almost ruins my enjoyment of any fabric I truly fall in love with. Major aggravation. Makes me mad at myself.

    I'm pretty new to quilting so I'm not real skilled at triangles and stars and things that have to be precise but I love to buy fabric. I'll get some really gorgeous fabric but won't cut it because I'm afraid in my inexperience I'll mess it up, use it for the wrong thing, etc. So I have stacks of gorgeous fabric waiting for the time when my skills catch up to my imagination.

    That is pretty, love the fall colors. Yes, I have been over protective of my material and what I make with it.
