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."
Update: December 2016
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
My goal for 2017 is to completely finish one quilt per week including quilting and binding.
After all, we have to have a plan.

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.
