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.

23rd Finish for 2017 - Quilted and Bound
9th Christmas Quilt made from PJ Scraps
This is the 9th quilt I have made from left over Christmas pajama scraps for my kids. At least 10 years ago, I cut up all the fabric that I could get into squares and managed to make 9 tops. I have actually quilted the last 3 this year with this being the last. Now I need one more grandbaby to give this one to! Note: I am not aware of any coming along as of yet!
I still have other sizes of scraps from this stash.
Franz had to be in both pictures. He really likes this one!
Size: 66" x 96"
Batting: Mountain Mist Soft, Light-Loft
NOTE: No fabric, batting or thread was purchased in 2017 to complete this quilt. This backing took 6 yards and the binding was 1/2 yard. By quilting these 3 Christmas quilts this year, I have almost used all of the muslin fabric that I bought for this purpose.
I am linking up with Jennifer at Quilting with the Inquiring Quilter for Wednesday Weight Loss. Please click on the link and see what others are doing to sew up their fabric!
