I've used virtually none of it but the lure of fabric is SO strong that I'm constantly buying fat quarters, pieces of fabric at miniature shows and picking up used clothing (particularly silks).

TIP: It's not always easy to tell at a glance if a print is small enough to be 'right' in miniature. Here's a little tip you might find helpful.
Cut a one inch square in a piece of cardstock that's at least 4" x 4" - large enough that you have a good sized border around the hole. Tuck it in your purse or wallet so you can check out any fabric you're looking at.
Place the card on the fabric and you will see what a square foot of the fabric would look like in RL.
Here is how it looks using seven different pieces of fabric. It really focuses your attention on the scale.
Now the fun (?) begins...I'll cut pieces 4" x 4", fold them in half to wrap around the fabric bolts; more pieces 1.5" x about 1" for fat quarters. (I know the scale size would be 1.5" x 1.833" for the fat quarters but the thickness of the fabric would make them too thick with the extra fabric length.)
I know a quilt shop should have jelly rolls but I don't know if I feel quite up to that - maybe I'll try making one or two.
