Oct 30 report

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!

Trunk Shows

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!

  1. 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!
