Ok, so most of you might not need an enabling friend. But…for those who do…I was thinking about my many friends who are on vacation, doubtless visiting quilt shops, and might be holding that fabric in their hands, needing a little nudge. This post is for you ;)!
#1 because that fabric will inspire a quilt you would never have considered!
See those REALLY bright fat quarters? At Quilters Take Manhattan, I grabbed a stack from Cherrywood and a stack from Kaffe Fassett’s fabrics and simply fell in love. OK so it’s a little bright 😎 but I love it 😁…
#2 It’s Christmas fabric…and even if you live in a household of only 2 humans, other family members can’t get enough of them….
#3 Because you WILL use them eventually…really. This piece created in January includes fabrics purchased at least 12 years ago (and nothing brand new, which gives one a sense of being a virtuous quilter…ok until the next time you walk into your LQS).
#4 Because they’re hand-dyed pieces, and therefore are one of a kind and are meant for YOU. (When you become friends with a really talented fabric-dyer, it becomes even more complicated 😉…)
