How to buy fabric
Iam in awe of the pretty fabrics at quilt shops, but was borderline shocked by how much it was going to cost me to make a quilt. I am looking at the possibilites of pre-cuts as well as yardage, and obviously, do not have a stash to dig in to. I don't want to do all that work with mediocre fabrics but have no idea of how or where to buy it. I figured it was going to cost me over $100 just for the fabric for a twin quilt. Is this reasonable?
How do you find affordable fabric and know how much to buy? Precuts are not cheap,but seem to be the only way to get a large variety of fabric for a quilt without having a lot leftover. I don't have a lot of foresight about which fabrics will look good in what proportions, so the coordinating lines appeal to me, but don't know where to start. I need a personal shopper! : )
