The problem is that it breaks my heart to cut into a yard if I only need a little piece. What if I need that full yard one day for a quilt back? Or a bag? So the large cuts languish. Even half yards. But FQs and FEs, those are almost like scraps to me; I can cut those up to my heart's content!
I've started buying bundles of the collections that I want to play with. Sometimes I find a print that I love and will buy yardage, but usually I'm satisfied with a bit of each.

And the linings? AMH Field Study from the FE bundle I bought.
It just feel ridiculously good to be using what I have, but also not generating lots of scraps.
You want to know what else is ridiculous? Letting Kristie convince you into buying 4 yards of this fabric. What CAN'T you use it for??? Yes, it's metallic gold on white.
So much for knowing my fabric using habits. ;)
