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

13th Finish for 2017
13th Finish for 2017 - Quilted and Bound
This was a Saturday Sampler quilt from my local quilt store (Cactus Quilts). I don't know how old this is. I am hoping someone from the shop can tell me.

I am so glad that I purchased the backing that she offered with this quilt. It is just beautiful. It has such a rich luxurious look to it. I don't know if the camera can really capture it.
Batting: Hobbs 80/20
Quilting Time: ~16 hours
Quilted on my Innova sit down long arm.
I quilted a little heart in the border just to show my family that I put a little bit of my heart in each quilt (which will eventually go to one of them).
No fabric, thread, or batting was purchased in 2017 to complete this quilt.
