Bought it. Don't need it. Want some free fabric?

Sorry! This giveaway is now closed!

I am starting to feel a wee bit guilty about the stash of fabrics. And the amount of time I would (honestly) need to sew them all up in their glory. My "to make" list is a mile long, of things I am aching to get to.....

Anyhoo, as mentioned I recently bought some fat quarters of Kate Spain's Fandango when I was at a local quilt shop. Love them. BUT. No plan for them. No time for them. Want 'em?

Up for grabs: these 6 fat quarters.


Up to 3 chances to walk away with the prize:

1. Leave me a comment about a purchase you feel guilty about...fabric, clothes, whatever!
2. Leave a second comment if you are a follower- because you guys are great :)
3. If you want to blog about it, leave a third comment.

Open for international as well as local friends. Winner will be announced on Friday March 25 after noon sometime (CST).

Best of luck!

I buy lots of fabric and feel guilty but I love it so! I do not buy fabric that I have an immediate use for and I am trying to get more organized so I will shop my stash more. Really. I am. I swear.

I love that Fandango fabric! I have some charm squares waiting to be made into a disappearing 9 patch baby quilt. I have some very cute fabic that I bought months ago to make into a skirt for myself. I feel guilty every time I see it! It's telling me it wants to be used, but I just haven't found the time yet!

I feel guilty about buying chocolate when I'm supposed to be cutting it out.

I follow your blog too! Thanks for the giveaway!

MaryJo said...

I have just started to sew again, and I'm already feeling guilty about spending so much on fabric! I need to get started and build up my "stash".

Paying the going rate for three VHTF KJR FQ. The yards I could have purchased for that little bit.

quiltilicious said...

Don't enter me in because I don't need it either but I needed to get off my chest that when I bought my current sewing machine, I had it delivered to my work and sneaked it in the house when husband was not around. Yes, I paid for it myself but I still couldn't bring myself to tell him how much I paid because men just don't 'get' the value of sewing machines. I knew he's be sitting there thinking...'but that's the price of a second hand car ;-)

I always feel guilty about shoes... because how many pairs do I need, really? But I can't resist sometimes. :)

Tanya said...

I feel guilty about buying myself anything-clothes, craft things, fabric and always feel I need to justify it. It's a bad habit to get into, one I created on my own. I have no problem buying things for my kids or husband guilt free, I guess I need to change :)

carolyn said...

I store most (but not all!) of my yarn on a shelf that's hidden behind the door to my office. That door is rarely closed so the shelf is rarely exposed. The other day my son was looking for something and checked out that shelf. He called out to me "you've got a LOT of yarn back here!" Yup, major guilty feeling after that.

Rachel said...

Yesterday I bought two new shirts. I didn't feel guilty until I realized how much money I had spent this weekend on other stuff - lunch out with a friend, quilt batting, antique spools and milk bottles...it adds up. Plus, my husband and I are going away next week. I should have waited. Oh well...

Rachel said...

I am a follower too! Love the fandango fabric :)

Kirie said...

OMG, Fandango! Love those fabrics :) Maybe once I will be lucky enough... And ybout being guilty... I'm always guilty when I buy fabric. It's really much money which could be spend for something else. I don't even want to calculate how much I spent up to now... I think I could go for some luxury holidays for those money... very luxury holidays ;)

I have quite a few guilty purchases sitting around - fabric bought without a project in mind, dresses bought without an occasion in mind, and waaay to many sweets!

Those are beautiful fabrics *fingers crossed*!

Ashley said...

Oh gosh, I always feel guilty about my fabric purchases. Lately I seem to be unable to stop myself from pressing the place order now button. Maybe I need to join a fabricholics anonymous meeting :)

Ashley said...

I'm a follower! Those fabrics are delish :)

Rissa @ Hazel and Honeysuckle said...

OK, this is a bit of a ramble..

A recent-ish guilty purchase was our new curtains. I love them! But it was BAD timing. They're thinner than our old ones, and summer was a hot one. No worries, except the aircon broke! It would've been cooler if we had the old curtains up... PLUS I emptied my bank account to buy them, and with Christmas, car trouble, and other bills we've been absolutely scratching ever since I bought them - oh dear!

How's that for a guilty purchase? Ooops!

Jennifer said...

I recently bought 2 yards each of 4 different beautifully coordinated fabrics. I couldn't help myself as they were so lovely together. However, I am feeling guilty because they were a complete impulse purchase. I must now figure out how I'll use them. Sigh...so much fabric, so little time.

Jennifer said...

I've been following your blog through a link of my favorite blogs to read on my own blog for quite a while now but today I have "officially" joined as a follower on your blog. Did that make sense? Oh well, I'm definitely a follower.

LynCC said...

Oh, I love Fandango! Latest guilty purchase: Yet another cookbook thingy at the check-out stand, that like the many before it, I haven't even used three weeks later. . .

Ann Marie said...

Hmmm I can not think of anything right now that I have bought that made me think of being guilty afterwards. As for fabric, I shop my stash right now, trying to use up all the old stuff, and the scraps too. Those are some pretty fabrics, and they might go great with a quilt I am working on right now.

Melissa said...

I always feel guilty when I purchase fabric that I have no plan for!!! But I do have a Fandango jelly roll that I started making a quilt out of and am worried it won't be anywhere near big enough... so I certainly wouldn't feel guilty winning these FQ's!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Anita in Florida said...

I feel guilty about the jelly rolls and honey buns that I've purchased...I can't seem to open them up to use...they are so pretty...but FQ I DO use!

Kelly O. said...

unfortunately I have a very small stash :(
so I rarely feel guilty as I buy what I need (however I would LOVE to buy what I want too!)

but while on vacay visiting my mom I found Alexander Henry's fashionista black and white cathedral windows fabric at joanns--for $5!!!
I was so excited, I instantly bought 2 yards...
that's not the guilty part...

i then came home and couldn't get it out of my head --i have no plan for this fabric and yet I wanted it--ALL OF IT!!

so I called the store and bought the remainder of the bolt over the phone (6 yards--eeep!)
and had my mom pick it up...

the guilty part...i did not tell the hubby!

Andrea said...

Hi! I love your posts and check in every day. My guilty purchases would HAVE to be fabric. I went to the local fabric shop recently to look in the remnants bin - good intentions - and walked out with $30 of fabric with NO plans for it. I felt very sheepish - fortunately I have an understanding hubbie!!

MN2NM said...

I have to say, honestly, that I feel guilty about every purchase. This is mostly because I have been moving around for two years and the majority of my stash is sitting in a storage locker and I have now managed to accumulate a sizable mobile stash!

Andrea said...

---and did I mention above that I follow every day?

MN2NM said...

My guilty pleasure is clothes. I have a ton with tags still on but I am weeding through them.

Dianne said...

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary and we went out this weekend and bought a diamond anniversary band and some beautiful earrings. I love them, but when I think of the money we spent ... yikes! He keeps telling me I'm worth it, so I'm going to make up my mind to enjoy them!! Thanks for the generous giveaway! I've been coveting some Fandango! dmlash04@msn.com

Alisa said...

Well, I want to sign up for the Sewing Summit that's going to be in October this year, but I guess I'm feeling a bit guilty about that. So it's guilt before the purchase is even made! Thanks for the chance at such lovely fabric.

A purchase I feel guilty about...Well I am El Cheapo so I feel guilty about a lot of purchases. I'm trying to get over that. When I have to buy new running shoes I cringe a little, even though they are worth every penny!

Barb said...

Thanks for the great chance to win. I often feel guilty about my fabric purchases...especially last time when I bought some AB French Wallpaper (one of my all time favourite prints) and then realized that I already owned 1/2 a yard!

Kelly said...

I bought a large amount of home deco fabric to make bedroom curtains. But I wasn't thinking correctly and got my math wrong-it isn't enough to make curtains for both windows. So the fabric sits in a drawer. Also in that drawer is fabric to make my Other Half a kindle case. But the pattern I'm using requires me to do my own math to properly fit it for our kindle model and I'm HORRIBLE at that. I am so intimidated and feel so guilty about that drawer of unused fabric.

Lisa said...

We are on a budget and every time I spend even $2-$3 on fabric with coupons from Joann I feel guilty. I went "hog wild" a few weeks ago an spent a full $10 at one time and I was so ashamed, but I couldn't make myself not do it. I now have just vowed to stay away from Joanns until I have the money for it. LOL!

This weekend I went thrifting. I got a tabletop ironing board. It cost me $3.93. I'm ok with that purchase, it's what I went for! HOWEVER, I left the store with 2 huge bags of clothes - spent $49!!! I do feel a little guilty abut that - I bought the clothes for the FABRIC - they're not even my size :)

joliesjunebugboutique said...

I bought 5 yards of fabric the other day! I felt guilty at first but they are basics so they will get used no matter what!

Robyn said...

I gave up buying fabric for Lent, but I bought fabric anyway! My justification for buying it was that my sister is having a wedding shower in April, and it was announced after I made my Lenten promise. I am makeing her a casserole carrier that will match the apron I made her at Christmas.

Kate said...

I feel guilty about the ice cream I just bought because it was on sale. As if we need a pail of caramel pecan sundae ice cream sitting in the freezer, calling our names! :)

Kate said...

A Seam to Sew said...

I also feel bad about buying some fabric. I'm new to quilting and kept seeing that everyone talks about their stash. I fell into the thought that I too needed a stash so I bought fabric with no projects in mind.

Lee said...

I don't feel guilty about buying fabric, since my husband knows it's my hobby/sanity, and he has his own expensive hobbies! I tend to feel guilty buying expensive purses or shoes. I don't spend a lot on my clothes, but when it comes to purses and shoes, I'm all about quality ... : )

Thanks for the giveaway.

Meg said...

Fabric is just about the only thing I buy that makes me feel guilty. I don't have a machine, so I have to go one project at a time. So, when I inevitably see fabric that I have a plan for (eventually), I buy it, and then feel guilty for not waiting. Bad times.

Meg said...

Christie, Describe Happy said...

I do feel guilty when I buy fabric that is cute and with no plan to use it. The lastest was a few elephant prints. However, I decided they will make adorable strip quilts to send to Japan. Light at the end of every tunnel! And oh how I love Fandango! Would be perfect for the backing of a Fandango criss-cross quilt I am nearly finished piecing *fingers crossed*

Christie, Describe Happy said...

I also so enjoy following along... lots of inspiration to be had here!

dooddles said...

Fabric is always a guilty purchase for me, only because my hubby makes it that way. I know that I have more than enough, but I don't need his reminders! (Like he has more than enough tools, so what's the dif?) It always feels like a covert operation when I am coming home from the fabric store. LOL

dooddles said...

Of course I am a follower, and yes, I want this fabric! LOL

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

Brooke said...

I think the time I felt the most guilty after a purchase was when my husband and I were newly married. I came home with two sweaters and four shirts. My husband freaked out a little thinking that I was going to turn into my mother (she likes to spend money). A lot of fabric purchases have made me feel guilty since, but I try not to dwell on those feelings. =)

Christy said...

My big guilty pleasures are fabric and books. I can't seem to get enough of either. Seriously, I must have 100+ books waiting to be read. I couldn't even start to calculate how many yards of fabric I have stashed here and there. Oh, and while I'm out shopping for fabric and books that I don't need, I usually take myself out to lunch. Yep, more guilt!

Bree said...

I know I shouldn't, but I actually feel sort of guilty about all the maternity clothes I just ordered. I'm a first time mom, and I almost feel like I don't want to miss out on this part of pregnancy, and I'm honestly using it as an excuse for an entirely new wardrobe - for four months. Ridiculous, when I think about it, but it's hard to stop!

Bree said...

Zia Maria said...

I bought way too many yards of fabric, when I should have paid attention to my greater needs for zippers, interfacing, etc.... Oh well, just have to sew more projects and get faster, faster, faster....

I always feel guilty when I go into a fabric store and NOT come out with a purchase. It is guilt that I am not supporting the owner. So i have more fabric in small pieces than I will ever use. I need to find a great pattern for a quilt that is scrappy but not crazy.

Karen said...

I brought a big wedge of blue cheese the other day and now it's just sitting in the fridge tormenting me and I'm feeling to guilty to eat it - after all I could do with losing a few lb's and not stuffing my face with cheese and biscuits! Lovely fabric bundle, I'd love to win, thx for the chances!

Stacy said...

Bought it. Don't need it. My latest unnecessary purchase was a 1976 Elna sewing machine. I learned on a 1962 Elna Super Blue Top just like my mothers, and my grandmothers, and had a burst of nostalgia.

I looked at the '76 and though it was different looking it contained all the memories of my childhood. I HAD to have it.

It's been with us for several months. I've sewn a couple of small projects with it, but have determined to sell it this summer.

Denise in PA said...

Yeah, I feel a little guilty about all the fabric (notions, patterns, books I buy) and it is only because I don't know if I'll ever get to use it all up (but since I have some leftovers of Fandango, I could put yours with it and make something and then I wouldn't feel guilty - LOLOL! I also might feel a teeny-tiny bit guilty about the iPad 2 I just bought (although I used birthday money for some of it) o:)

Denise in PA said...

I'm also a follower! I also just remembered something else I feel guilty about - the Janome Memorycraft 6600P I bought on a whim 2 years ago. Never use it, don't need it and am trying to sell it.

mevrouw Pardoes said...

Hi there,
I never feel quilty, but sometimes when I buy new shoes I think: do I really need them? When you grow up, you need new shoes because the old ones doesn't fit anymore! But when you are 44 like me, your feet will be the same size for the rest of your life! So that is why I recycle my old (but still good) shoes and give them to the thriftstore.
When I win your give away, I will use the fabric for blankets that I make for an orphange in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (one of my adopted sons lived there when he was a baby). Such bright colours make me smile and I hope the children there will do that too!

Nancy said...

I feel guilty about that last pair of shoes I bought. Even though they were on sale, who needs yellow flats???

Sara @ Sew Sweetness said...

My stash is really small, so I use just about everything to keep within my budget. I do still feel guilty whenever I buy fabric, because even though I use it, it is not a necessity. Mostly I feel guilty about all the supplies needed to make just one quilt (even if you're working from the stash, you still need to buy at least the batting). Oh, well, I need to do it because I couldn't live without sewing. :-)

Kate R said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I have a fandango jelly roll that I do have a plan for but need to buy some extra fabric to finish it off!

I just started what was a supposed to be a scrap quilt and, despite raiding my mother's very impressive fabric stash, I still went out and bought more! Although it wasn't too much, I still felt a bit guilty, just because it kind of defeated the purpose of this scrap quilt!

Kate R said...

I bought a dress for my daughter's 8th grade graduation. I didn't know if she'd like it or not. Turns out, not. Am I returning it? Noooooo...its fits so I'm keeping it. Doesn't matter that she is 13 and I'm 45, it fits!

I have to admit, my guilty purchases are almost always fabric! That makes me wonder if I should be entering a giveaway for more :) Those fabrics are gorgeous-- I can't resist!

Might sound silly but I feel guilty for buying a package of Mint Milanos today... it was 2.50 I really didn't need to spend. And since I felt guilty for it, I ate almost the whole pack before my husband got home so he wouldn't know...

The thing I am most guilty about buying is a portable DVD player. The player was used 3 or 4 times before finding a permanet home on the closet shelf. By the way the fabric is fantastic and i am not sure I would feel guilty about buying it eveb if I just touched it a few tomes.

I feel soooo guilty about my fabric purchases!!! in fact, I'd prefer buying MORE fabric than new clothes...I know I'm a fabric hoarder.
Is that insane? LOL

I have lots of "guilty" buying habits. First I buy anything cute and vintage looking just because. Second I buy lots of cute fabric, buttons,thread,sewing patterns/books because I am sure I will us them in future projects. Now I didn't say exactly when those future projects might start or fininsh. It all depends on my family, children and my mood. I just love crafting!!

I feel guilty about having bought a fancy sewing machine when I could have settled for a cheaper one...because I can't connect it to my pc without spending more money and at the end of the day it's just a hobby

I feel guilty when I buy craft stuff. I know people are struggling and sometimes I feel like it's such a frivolous purchase. But, usually I try to hand make all my gifts so I guess it evens out a bit.
