My other block regarding use of fat quarters is mental. i don't know if this is the case for anyone else, but i have the hardest time making myself sew with fat quarters. i sew with scraps because that is fabric that would otherwise be thrown away. and i sew with yardage because there is plenty of it. but the fat quarters are both too substantial and too small to "waste." that's another reason why my FQs tend to overflow. so i took the first step with my ginormous bag and cut almost entirely from fat quarters. now that they're clearly visible hopefully i will use them more, especially since i'll be adding to them regularly. i signed up for the pink castle fabrics Stack Stash Club. i know, i know--but i'm hoping this will be a good way to force stashing some of the colors that i never buy. i should seriously consider opting out of the blue month though. i seem to be doing just fine on that one by myself.
