Description

Speaking of precious fabrics...Have you heard of <a href="http://www.flickr.com/groups/1930196@N21/pool/with/7048095033/">My Precious QAL</a> that Kelly of <a href="http://www.kelbysews.blogspot.com/">Kelbysews</a> is hosting? I know you guys have amazing, favorite, gorgeous, PRECIOUS fabric you're hoarding over there! So here's the deal, STOP BEING A HOARDER, and use it :-)

The fabric doesn't have to necessarily be HTF or OOP, it just has to be awesome to you and not a current line. A big group of us are creating a pact to use our fabrics in a project, it doesn't even have to be a quilt. Just use some or all of it! Come on! It will be fun!

Here's what I'm using!

Yuuup! That's Heather Ross Mendocino! And yes, I'm a hoarder. I figure especially since I am going to see Heather in a few weeks that it's time to dive in.</div>

&nbsp;So I admit, I cut into these beauties, I guess about two years ago now and started on a quilt. Well only a row was accomplished. Now it's time to finish, because I have still be afraid to use it, even after I started a row. Silly, I know.</div>
