2 more UFO baby quilts finished
These 2 baby quilts were quilted very quickly. That’s easy to do when they’re already sandwiched and ready to quilt. And they are small!
I estimate that they used approximately 3.5 yards each. Along with the baby quilt I showed on Friday – I figure that’s 10.5 yards of fabric …
The 4 Christmas placemats used about 2.5 yards … so a total of 13 yards this week. WooHoo!
I presented 2 trunk shows at a guild last week. It was a lot of fun to show my quilts and talk about my quilting journey. In between the afternoon and evening meetings, I taught at their “Between” session and demonstrated binding by machine. I will write a tutorial on machine binding, soon.
Anyhow, one of the ladies asked how I could exist without buying a lot of fabric. I told her that not going through the door of fabric stores, not shopping online and keeping an account on this blog has helped a ton. Also, having a frequent look at what I do have – well, that helps as well. One thing that I haven’t included is the fabric that people give me … their scraps … Even when I try to refuse, somehow the bag comes home with me. Groan!

I think that tracking your fabric use is wonderful, even though I don’t do it myself. It would be interesting to do though, to see what the final totals would be at the end of the year. Congrats on finishing more of your UFO’s – great job!
Thanks, Beth! There is absolutely NO reason why you can’t track your fabric use and buying … but you also don’t have to have a goal of using more fabric than you buy … it’s totally a personal thing!
Great job exceeding 100 yards used!
Thanks! It’s a big accomplishment in my books!
