Dear Lynette, The Romance is Over

Our challenge this week is to write about falling out of love with a technique, fabric or pattern. For me the answer is easy... Thimbleberries. I used to adore the country stylings of Lynette Jensen's fabric and now I'm really not a fan at all. My first real foray into quilting was in Atlanta where I did a course at Little Quilts in Marietta and the kit I bought for our sampler was all Thimbleberries fabrics. I was hooked,  I joined a Thimbleberries fat quarter club and received 6 fat quarters a month. Then my interest in Thimbleberries started to wane but not before I had built up quite a stash. Now I'm not sure what to do with it . Any suggestions? I do admire Lynette Jensen, I think she's an amazing force in the quilting world but her work is just not my cup of tea anymore.

I know what you mean. So many times I absolutely fall in love with a line of fabric and just have to have it. Only to find myself saying what in the world was I thinking, later. I really did love it at the time, but not so much anymore.I'm not sure why, but I have tried to not jump so quickly to buy it and wait just a little a while to see if I still feel that way later. I have to watch the impulsive purchases very carefully.
