I'm a Hoarder

A neutral fabric hoarder, that is!  Okay, maybe I don't have quite as many as some other quilters out there, but lately I just can't seem to stop looking and buying.  Is there a cure?  Do I want to be cured?  NO!

I shared some photos recently of neutral fabrics I've purchased lately and I've now added to that.  This photo shows all of the neutrals I've purchased within the past 30 to 40 days, so there are some you've seen.  I've been acquiring more fabrics with text on them, thanks to some concerned readers who knew of some that they figured I'd like.  The stack of whites on the left are not plain white, but white on white prints, which work wonderfully for the way that I like to use these neutral fabrics.


And here's a photo of all my neutrals in my cupboard.  See, that's not an obnoxious amount, right???

  2. That's not hoarding, that is merely accumulating. Hoarding is when you keep things you have no need for. You need these!!:-)

  3. I look at it this way - since fabric doesn't go bad you can store it forever. So I say - buy as much as you want!

  7. I'm with ya! I've stopped buying a lot of fabric but not these basics! ;^) In a pantry you store basics. This is just a different kind of pantry. Think tomatoes, zucchini - in a good year! lol

  9. I like Elle's perspective!!! You know, I never think about buying neutrals, I always jump at the colors. I need to take a little Terri with me the next time I go shopping!!!
