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.

26th Quilt for 2017 - Quilted and Bound
Quilt #26 for 2017
Made HSTs with 10" squares sewn around the edges of two squares, right sides together then cut them diagonally to make 4 HSTs.
Berenstain Bears Backing
I just happened to have enough fabric for the border and backing.
I don't have much novelty fabric but this seemed to do the trick!
Size: 55" square
Batting: SewPerfect Polyester by Fairfield
Quilted on my Innove Sitdown Longarm Machine
NOTE: No fabric, batting or thread was purchased in 2017 to complete this quilt.
