I might have slight problem

I might have a bit of a hoarding problem…but only with fabric…and maybe notebooks (I can’t resist a spiral notebook…or office supplies for that matter, but that’s another sickness).

For as long as I can remember I have always loved fabric. And not just quilting cottons. I can remember going to the fabric store and just walking up and down the aisles touching the fabric…tell me I’m not the only one who did this. I still do it. I can also peruse any number of online fabric shops, filling my cart to the brim, even if I have no intention of buying anything. It just feels good to look at fabric…to dream about the possibilities.

But my problem with fabric goes much deeper…I’m afraid to waste it…so much so that I sometimes stand paralyzed looking at a project because I don’t want to screw up and waste any fabric. I will even adjust a pattern if I think I’m going to waste too much fabric.

So what’s a quilter to do when you want to sew, but don’t have the guts to just cut into that stack already?
