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.

8th Finish for 2017 - Quilted and Bound
Square in a Square Quilt
I took a class at my LQS quite a few years ago and finished the top but never got it quilted!
Quilting - 6 hours - mostly ruler work and some FMQ
Batting - Hobbs 80/20 Size - 43" x 60"
Please note that there was no fabric, batting, or thread purchased in 2017 to complete this quilt!
