You may have read about the fabric I had ordered to make a birthday gift for a friend's daughter that wend missing. You can read about it here.
In my rush to replace the missing fabric, I bought some at a local store. Two different stores in fact, purchased days apart. And not just any store. They were quilt stores. Both carrying hundreds of bolts of quality quilt fabric. Each time I thought I was happy with my fabric selection and each time I regretted my choice within minutes of leaving the store.
Since I no longer like the fabrics bought to make this gift (I cannot share details until after it has been given) they won't be used, at least not for this project. So much for my goal of reducing inventory.
