A little over 30 years ago, I started collecting fabric. I felt like I needed a good variety in order to make my quilts. About 10 years ago, I stopped collecting fabric. I determined that I needed to sew up my fabric before I could buy any more. I have only made a few exceptions since then, and I try to limit myself to buying only solids. You will be able to tell by my quilts that most of the fabric is now what is called "vintage."
Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!
Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

Liberated Piecing, Wild Quilting and Divide and Conquer
I figured if the quilt was liberated, then I should continue on with wild quilting!
My quilting was inspired by two Craftsy Classes
I know that the quilting would have looked better in a matching thread but I was feeling pretty wild and wanted to get bold. I am glad that I used the black thread for quilting because it really helps me to see where I need to improve and by trying to incorporate so many designs in this quilt, I got a better feel of what I think my personal style will be.
I figured this was a good quilt to practice my wild quilting which was inspired by Christina Cameli's Craftsy Class.
Divide & Conquer
I also incorporated some techniques of Lori Kennedy's Craftsy Class.
