Cue the Opening theme from 2001 A Space Odyssey
I have long desired to own a bit of Kaffe Fassett fabric and never bought any “…because it is too expensive” I told myself. So, about two weeks back I finally broke down and bought a packet of 30 fat quarters. Yes, 30 of them.
And there they sat on my cutting table for the past week, because like the apes in 2001 A Space Odyssey I am afraid to touch it, or to even open it.
It is intimidating when you spend like this on little bits of brilliant jewel toned fabric. What if I open it and cut it up and make a mistake? What if I open it and nothing speaks to me?
What if, what if, what if?
What if I bought it and never used it? That would be a waste now wouldn’t it?
OK, I opened it.
Any other quilter’s out there who understand this?
