I'm starting to slowly build up a stash of fabrics but as a new quilter I find that putting together color combinations is somewhat overwhelming. Coordinating solid colors is pretty simple but it's when you throw prints into the mix that I freeze up. I think that's why I like the concept of kits with the fabric already chosen for you for a particular pattern. The downside though is those can get expensive or they're only for a specific size. Yes, I could buy a bundle of a precuts from a specific fabric line, but that too, can get pricey. And it doesn't solve my issue of how to use the various fabrics that I've accumulated so far. I've been practicing my free motion quilting on some placemats that I've made but I'm itching to start a new project. I can't let the fear of possibly choosing the wrong fabrics prevent me from starting.
