So I was thinking the other day about quilting...mostly because all my stuff is still in storage in MN and I cant do anything...but...

What comes first for you? the pattern/design of the quilt or the fabric that you are going to use?

I tend to go either way, but more often the fabric comes first...I constantly have little fabric stacks sitting around waiting for a pattern or idea for a quilt. (the stormy squares quilt that I just realized I have not posted here yet is one example...I think I posted the stack a while back though..)

Sometimes I do however, design first and then find the fabric..for instance, I have a fantastic idea for a space/firefly (as in the awesome show that was tragically canceled way too early..) quilt, but I do not (yet) have the fabric for.
