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.

Finishing the Month with Odds and Ends of Teal

Making Pre-cuts with Scraps
 My husband saw these on the table and wanted to know what the quilt was going to look like.  He asked me several times about these fabric.  I told him I didn't know. I am just cutting them up right now!
Pre-cuts
This is my current stack which includes FQs, 10", 8-1/2", 5" and 2-1/2" sqaures and 2-1/2" strips.
My first fabric bowl!
 I can't believe I am willing to share this.  It is a little wonky and pretty big, but I like the colors.  See the purple and teal?

 BOOKMARKS!


Elm Street Quilts is encouraging Improv Play with triangles this week.  I know it is supposed to be on fabric but............ Kat at Kat&Cat Quilts posted a fun bookmark so I incorporated the two while still using my teal scraps.  I needed a bookmark for my planner anyway!


 
I didn't get a whole lot of teal sewn up this month but I did manage to get my teal organized for the next time I need it.  I learned that I don't use my scraps if they are sorted by color in ziploc baggies.  Pre-cuts are a better use of fabric for me!
I wonder what color Angela will pick for March?
