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

RSC17 and 7th finish for 2017
7th Finish for 2017 - Quilted and Bound!
Since the color this month is teal, I thought I would choose a quilt top with teal in it.
This quilt was made from a Stack-n-Whack Class I took (a long time ago) at my LQS (Cactus Quilts in Texas City). The backing shows the fabric that was used to stack and whack the diamonds for the stars.
