A Month of Colorwheel Stashing

This post is part of an ongoing series of posts where I document my fabric stash purchases.
This year I am trying to keep track of my fabric intake in order to see how much I consume.  I'm not going to keep track of how much I spend, though, because then I might cry.

I've been trying to be a little more deliberate and selective in my fabric purchases of late. I still buy what I love, but have been working on building a more color balanced stash.  This color wheel represents at least 3 different buying excursions during August and September.

On these particular trips I worked on filling in the gaps of my navy blues, oranges, and some low volume pieces.  The other pieces were just odds and ends that I loved.

folded fabrics aligned in a circle and organized in rainbow color order

My stash is filling out nicely, so I guess in order for me to justify any more fabric purchases I better start using large amounts of stash!

do you get 1/2 yard cuts when you stash build?

These are all FQ's, but I do buy 1/2 yds of stuff I really, really like. :)
