"Precious QAL"

I left my beloved KC Scrappy Bee for this upcoming year.  Trying to divest myself of obligations so I can focus on getting some gaols of mine taken care of.  It has been fun and informative the past two years being in this Bee.  I am only going to do things that are at my own pace as other things have stolen my sewing time.  In this light I have joined the "My Precious QAL" on Flickr.  This QAL was desinged for us fabric hoarders to use some of those "Precious" fabrics that we have hoarded and only look at an touch occasionally.  Oh yes, I have several of those!
This is my little stash of Anna Maria Horner Bohemian.  Nope, not using this....yet.

These are the rest of precious stash of out of print (OOP) fabrics and yes, mostly Tula Pink goodies.  I have worked hard stalking the internet to collect this fabulous grouping!
The Moda Lush is absolutely impossible to find except for a few pieces so I have really just looked at this on the shelf for some time.  I am finally motivated and I am going to cut it up to make a quilt and pillow.  Hope I don't cry!!!

We quilters are funny beings about our fabric.  We all have favorites and I think we all share angst when it comes to cutting those favorite fabrics up and putting them in a project.  Even though that was the reason that we bought the stuff!

What are your favorites??  What have you made with them??  If you are still looking at and petting those fabrics come join the "My Precious QAL" on Flickr and lets cut them up!!
