    I usually go to my stash. When I buy fabric, I already have a plan for the future.

    I have been known to do both; most times when I buy fabric I don't always remember the pattern I bought it for....or when my scraps are getting "aplenty", I figure out always to condense it.

    I don't have enough of a stash yet so I buy but can usually find that I have the fabric for the binding. If it is a small project like a runner I may have what I need in my stash. My LQS is great but doesn't have a large selection of neutrals so I try to keep on hand.

    I do both, I usually dig in my stash and then buy what I need. Sometimes I get lucky and some of the fabric is in my stash.

    I always say I will use the fabric in my stash, but when I watch one of Jenny's Tutorials I fall in love with her fabric choices and just have to buy that fabric line to make the project. This is actually a very good thing because it allows me to work with colors and styles of fabric prints that I wouldn't have purchased otherwise. I absolutely love Jenny's tutorials and every project that I have made. The tutorials have expanded my fabric and color palette and allowed me to grow and think outside of my previous comfort zone, to try new block patterns and use templates and tools I otherwise wouldn't of had a clue what to do with. Thank you so much! Jenny is like a breath of fresh air to the quilting world!

    I dig in my stash because I have so much to use. It's like my own little fabric shop here. It's fun going through what I have when I find something I forgot I have and even more fun when I can find the perfect piece and color hue.

    I usually make a test block (make it into a place mat or runner) and use fabric from my stash. If I really like the block, I'll buy new fabric. Not always the same pattern or color as Jenny's but just as beautiful.
    Keep Calm and Quilt On!
    Wishing all a happy and healthy 2016.
