So much fabric love, so little time to make quilts. All these fantastic new fabric collections are calling out, "Buy me! Buy me!" I will go broke, and run out of storage space, unless I develop a plan that builds in some impulse control.
My plan is called the 30-Day List. If I see something online that I like, it goes on the 30-Day List. Rural Jardin, Bar Harbor, Kaffe Fassett, Lakehouse teacups and birds - all on the 30-Day List. Whenever I fall in love, it goes on the list, along with the date. If, at the end of 30 days, I am still in love and have a plan to use the fabric in question, I can make the purchase. If it was just a passing fancy, it gets struck from the list, no purchase made. Exceptions will be made for anything I need right now, to complete a specific project. Exceptions will undoubtedly be made when I go to the Quilt Fest of New Jersey in March.
Let's hope it works.
