How Much Fabric to Buy

Recently a member at Stashbuster asked how much of each fabric to buy.  Until a few years ago, I would buy a fat quarter to 1.5 yards of fabric that I liked; most of those fabrics went to stash. Now that my quilting budget is $50 per month, I buy almost exclusively for current projects. I use Electric Quilt to design my quilts, and I buy a little more than the design's recommended amounts, for safety. Although I am not in Stashbusters' No-Buy group, with its restrictive fabric buying guidelines, I think I would pass.  I buy little fabric "on speculation" and most of my projects are gifts. I shop my stash when possible, but I don't feel guilty about buying the fabric I need.
