    You are off to a good start. You do realize this is only the beginning. Once we give into the urge it soon becomes an addiction.

    Advice: don't stay away from any material that you like/love!! Stash building is addictive but fun to pull from when you are working on a project. Have fun building one for yourself!! Looks like you're off to a great start.

    You have a great beginning! Buy whatever you love in whatever amounts you can afford because when you want or need it, it will be gone. I would add some blacks, brown, and neutrals next.

    GOOD START. It looks to me like you don't need any help in the shopping area. Great fabrics. Rule of thumb is if it jumps out at you and you like it, buy it. I buy at least 3 yards of each fabric I purchase. Sometimes even that isn't enough depending on the quilt pattern you're making. Just have fun and enjoy.

    Good start for a Soldier on the Go! Are you able to purchase any fabrics out there in Puerto Rico? By the way, thanks to people like you, we at home have the freedom that we do. My son is Army, 16 yrs. now.

    You have got a real nice stash going on! I hear you will use these up faster than you know. All those colors are lavish, bright & pretty, Have to show us what you make out of these soon.

    You have a nice variety in colors, the only thing I would suggest is to add a wider variety of prints and patterns, like florals, stripes, plaids, larger prints, geometric prints, etc. As for the yardage, it depends on your circumstances (how much you can store, move with you, etc.) and what size and type of quilts you like to make and what you can afford. For me, I love scrappy quilts and I had limited funds so I bought 1 yard pieces or even half yard pieces. I decided I would rather have a large selection of small amounts of fabrics instead of a small quantity of larger pieces. Although when I saw a fabric that I just fell in love with or a wonderful border fabric, I'd buy 3 yards. And when I came across muslin for 21 cents a yard, I took all they had!!
