The Story of Stonehenge

I have had a Stonehenge fat quarter roll for a couple of years.

Okay, maybe more than a couple of years….

I bought it at a time when I didn’t buy fabric unless I had a good reason and “just because” was not a good reason.

The only good reason for me at that point in my life was if I had a specific quilt to make for someone (rarely for me). Then I would have a very prepared list of the exact amount of fabric I would need. No more, no less.

When I saw this stone roll of fat quarters my mind became mush. I must have picked it up, fondled it, debated and put it back 6 or 7 times.

My dear husband made the same comment he has said to me many times, “if you want it get it, how many times have you walked away from a potential purchase and later regretted it?”

So I bought it.


I have a pattern I want to use and I plan to cut into it. Really. I think. Maybe.

Are you ever afraid to cut into your fabric? Why? or Why not?

Enjoy the journey


  • I know what you mean about having a fear of cutting into a fabric. My fear is that I haven’t chosen the “perfect” pattern for the fabric- so I shouldn’t start cutting & should wait for that “perfect” pattern.

    When I do find that “perfect” pattern, I then have a fear I won’t have enough fabric & I won’t be able to get more, so I shouldn’t start cutting.

    Then I’ve even experienced after finding the “perfect” pattern, confirming I have enough fabric, I still don’t cut. Because now I’m so wound up about this fabric, if I do start cutting, I’ll cut wrong & mess it up.

    I hate fear & what it does to me.

  • Oh, I totally get it! I have some that I’ve been saving for the “perfect” project 🙂 Cut girl, cut….can’t wait to see what you make!
