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.

10th Finish of 2017 - Quilted and Bound
10th Finish - Quilted and Bound
This quilt was inspired by Pat Sloan's "Coins in the Fountain" quilt pattern which can be found in the Moda Bake Shop.
I put way too much quilting on this one!
A quilted heart
While I was quilting this one, I decided to put a little heart hidden in the quilting. Since the majority of my quilts are designated for my children and grandchildren, I thought that I will hide a little bit of my heart in all future quilts.
Size: 80" x 88"
Batting: Hobbs 80/20
Quilting Time: 18 hours
Quilted on my Innova Long Arm Sit Down Machine
There was no fabric, batting or thread purchased in 2017 to complete this quilt.
The majority of the fabric in this quilt was given to me by a friend who was getting rid of her scraps. There is very little actual "quilt" fabric in it. It is mostly scraps from garments.
