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

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.
