It seems like I’ve been sewing quite a bit lately but am not finishing anything. This week I actually moved in the wrong direction and added fabric but didn’t use any. I know people count their fabric usage differently but I don’t count mine as being used until the quilt is finished. This gives me a little motivation to finish things so I can add the yardage to my totals.
On Friday I went to Quilt Expo in Madison. Usually I’m really tempted at shows by all the new quilts and fabrics. I didn’t see too much that was new this time. I thought there would be more bright, modern fabrics but didn’t see much of anything along that line. I already have a million yards of dark, traditional fabric in my stash so I was able to pass on most of it.
There was one booth, though, that was selling fat quarters for $1.80 each. THAT was too big a bargain to pass up so I came away with these.
Just 20 fat quarters. I have a plan for the black/brown/tan ones but the others were just for fun.
Next week I’ll report a finish or two. I loaded a quilt on the machine today and told my husband I hope I haven’t forgotten how to quilt! Seems like forever since I had something on the frame.
