How much Amy Butler fabric is too much?

It's interesting stuff to work with, or so I find, because while the patterns can be very individual, and of course often larger scale, it all goes together very happily. Can be quirky, but it has always worked so nicely for me.

This photo, I hasten to add, was taken in a shop and is NOT a picture of my stash.

Today's task is stash evaluation and sorting. I hope to be realistic about what I can/will/am likely to use, and wise about what to do next. So I've enlisted a friend's help - she doesn't come from a long line of hoarders....

The Amy Butler fabrics will be among those I know I will keep, and use.

One can't ever have enough AB fabric! I'm not a hoarder, but I do go crazy over certain patterns, especially those in her Charm collection!

I sent an email but I couldn't tell if it was a g or a q. Nevertheless based on your comment I have my answer. As to how much fabric - I think the answer is however much you want and can afford. Even when I cannot sew I like to go into my studio and just touch all the fabric and pull out the odd piece and admire it. Sort of like collecting art but much cheaper and I don't have to keep it in a vault.
