- I can purchase batting or quilt backing fabric (because I don't have large cuts of fabric on hand)
- I can purchase time on the long arm for quilting
- I can purchase thread or notions, as needed.
- Commissioned Quilts - fabric for those quilts can be purchased with the expectation that they will pay for themselves.
- I may need some white solid Kona to use as background - I can buy that, but only with a Joann's coupon ;)
- If for some reason a fabric fairy sends me a gift certificate, I am GOING to buy a bundle of Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics line - I'm slightly obsessed with it!
Also as part of the challenge, I need to lay out my UFO/WIP list for the next 6 months, to keep myself on track. Here it goes!
Red and White Double Wedding Ring
status = piecing in progress - due September 12 for Quilt Show
status = blocks completed, need to add sashing, quilt
status = rows completed, need to put it together, quilt
update* top completed* 12/29
Summer Sampler Series
status = top complete, needs quilting
status = starting in January. Here's my fabric pull for that quilt (from my stash, of course)
Rainbow Russian Rubix
status = not started yet, but I've got the rainbow charms to piece the blocks.
Economy Block Along
I may have found the way to bust up my stash even more with the #economyblockalong on Instagram. Check out the free pattern and tutorial by Red Pepper Quilts... This could be a great year long effort to dash the stash!
I'm sure I will add more projects as the year goes along, but this is definitely a good start and plenty to keep me busy for the next 6 months!
Anyone out there thinking about going on a fabric diet?
