    Default Fabric blahs

    I haven't seen a collection that's inspired me for months and months and months now. I have the fabric blahs.
    I'm whining but I know ya'll understand.

    Hi Heather,

    Fabric blahs!!! That doesn't sound like you at all. Maybe we should meet up in Reno after the snow melts and have a fabric-fun day! When the snow melts....ah there's the rub. You need a vacation, maybe come to SF?

    Some of the new collections (in my eyes only) seem just plain ugly, So I'm agreeing with you. I do need a vacation or some kind of inspiration. I don't need more fabric, I have tons of it on the shelves in my sewing room Just need a project I'm really happy to make.

    I think once you get a good stash, there isn't going to be much to excite you until you see something you want to make. I have plenty of fabric to make a lot of good stuff just not enough energy to execute it.

    It happens. Maybe a visit to a real store to pet new fabrics that may inspire you. I know I. Not falling for new lines lately, except I really like the designer Jason Yenter lines by In The Beginning. The fabric feels like silk.

    I hope it passes soon.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    A lot of fabric collections don't appeal to me, either. Sometimes when I see a "blah" collection used in an actual quilt, the beauty of the fabric really comes out and suddenly I see the appeal!

    I agree with grammaterry; having a big stash can make you choosier about buying new fabric. Also, a great many collections aren't appealing from the get-go if you're not looking to make a holiday quilt or a baby quilt, or if you're not big on the gray trend.

    I feel the same. Other than a cheap layer cake from Tuesday Morning, I've not bought very little print fabric in the past year...just a few solids &some wide backing for a gifted quilt. Nothing has really "grabbed" me.
