And I’m sticking to it! 🙂
Some of this fabric was already here. You can click on the picture to see a larger image. Before Mom and Dad arrived for Christmas, I found a good size pile of unwashed fabric so I stuck it in a cabinet in the laundry room. Some in this picture was that older fabric so it didn’t get added into my numbers for this week. See the green stack — the bottom one and the top two are new. On the far right pile, all four reds are new, one of the top two browns is new, two of the golds are new.
Here’s how it happened. Remember Chad’s quilt? I love that green fabric! I have it in red, purple, gold, ecru and probably something else but . . I no longer had it in green. Every time I’d look at my stash, I’d say to myself . . I no longer have that green fabric that I love! That’s a definite sign that I have a problem that needs professional help, right? Oh! Stop saying yes . . you all have the same problem I have!
I ordered 9 yards of it. Don’t ask me why I chose 9 yards . . I could’ve gotten 10 or 12 or 6 but I got 9.
About the red – I’m not real happy with the red that I chose for my red, black and white quilt. I have the perfect red – a dimple fabric, but I don’t have enough of it. I have brighter reds, duller reds, orangey reds but nothing as perfect as that dimple fabric. But, I didn’t order the dimple fabric . . I ordered four other fabrics hoping one of them would work. I think the top red one in this stack will work.
The golds? I don’t know . . I never seem to have just the perfect shade of gold.
So, you see . . I wasn’t just adding to the stash but I was actually getting fabric that I need!
And, just because I have a new camera, I needed to play around and take some pictures!
