I asked family members who are potential quilt recipients to write lists of their 10 favorite things. As I travel and visit different cities and quilt shops, I buy fabric (some novelty, some not) to suit the different individuals. This is a fun way to add to my stash and causes me to look at and use fabric I might not otherwise.
