Now...just what does that mean? (Silly me....whatever I want it to mean.) Only fabric that is protein? Restricted buying of fabric?? Oh No! Only fabric that is veggies and fruit? mmmmmh. Perhaps, that's a good one and just might work for my "Fabric Diet".
I've been trying to keep my fabric closet shelves tidy, neat, organized by colors (for my jelly rolls and quilt charm squares I sell in my ETSY Shop) and I keep increasing the number of colors I am offering. Here's the latest....browns & dots, that have been added to my shop.
When you have so many stacks of at least 10 different fabrics in each colorway on your selves, it becomes a S P A C E problem. Then.....I'm forced into slowing down on just buying fabrics 'cause I like them, hence my "Fabric Diet". So, I'm not GOing to buy any more fabric for the rest of April and GO on a Fabric Diet.
Well....what's a quilter to do when "healthy fabrics" are given to her....like these? These were given to me when I was in Indiana visiting my daughter and we went to one of her quilt groups that makes quilts for foster kids. I bought several yards of fleece to donate to them for the backs of their quilts and they gave me these.
Then............. I'm forced to GO and buy some special variegated thread to quilt a table runner I'm making........and what do I find?
Well......it's "healthy fabrics" so it won't count on my Fabric Diet.
