    I'm a little bit of both, but lean much more towards buying new. After 18 years of quilting, I realized that I am really not a stash kind of quilter. I like to buy new fabrics as new projects come up. But I do have a little stash to pull from, especially neutrals since they are pretty classic and stand the test of time no matter how long they sit in my quilt room.

    Congrats to the wires.

    To do a test block I just grab scraps but I have a very small stash so if I doing a whole project I buy new for it.

    I start with my stash, then add new fabrics as needed... I'm trying real hard to be on a fabric diet!

    I'm definitely in the fabric buying camp at this point. Maybe because I'm fairly new to quilting and still go all googly eyed over a new fabric collection, partly because my stash isn't that big, and partly because I do fall for those videos. But that's not a bad thing, is it?

    I'm a beginner so my stack is limited. I'm also 30 miles from the nearest quilting store, and have no mail delivery. The small stash is my treasure.

    I am ashamed to admit that I probably have enough fabric in my stash, not the identical one that Jenny uses though.

    I do both. If I see a pattern I like, I will first go into my stash to see what I can use. But there have been times when I have seen a fabric that I really like, and so I will then go looking for a pattern in which to use that fabric. I am a "sucker" for the names of fabric lines. That explains why I have materials in the black and white "Sylvia" line, and also materials from "Silvia's Garden" and "Silvia's Sonnett". I bought the "Lydia" jelly roll to make a quilt for a neighbor's daughter named......Lydia! Right now, I have so many UFO and material for planned projects that I shouldn't have to buy that much material, with the exception of some backing and possibly borders.

    I usually pick from my stash, I seem to have a daily deal addiction-I have to look just in case the perfect fabric is waiting for me!
