The other day I was laying out the colors for my new quilt with Michael Miller Cotton Couture. I was doing raw edge appliqué again, so of course I wanted the right color threads.

When I want to start a project, I want to start it RIGHT AWAY. I hate having to order stuff and wait for it to arrive, or drive half way across town to find thread to work with my fabric. I would rather be home sewing and this is why I LOVE having great big stash of thread colors at hand. I am thinking I could seriously use on of those suitcases with the entire collection of Aurifil spools.

Do you like to shop for specific projects or do you tend to keep every color of the rainbow – and then some – at hand?
