If you remember, back in January I took up the gauntlet thrown down by Making Rebecca Lynne
and started Fabric Fasting. For six months. We are three months in and I have some confessions to make.
Confession #1 - I bought a piece of cream flannel, This was a backing needed for the Piper Stars Baby Quilt
. One of my original rules, it's OK to buy fabric to be able to finish UFOs or custom orders. This was a custom order. NO SIN
Confession #2 - I bought five yards of shot cotton for a Library Project
quilt. Supplies for The Library Project were in my permission rules so this was OK too. And even though when it came in the mail and the color was not what I expected, I put it right in to use as a backing for another Library Project Quilt - Summer Tracks
. NO SIN
|Just ran out to snap back pic in freezing rain. This weather is getting old. |
Confession #3 - I bought 5 yards of Kona for a custom order (Lush Charm Pack Cherry
), which is ok, BUT then I got a little out of control. While putting the Kona in the cart at my favorite on-line Shop Mad About Patchwork
I thought about what a good time I had making my Summer Tracks Quilt and wanting to make more from that book - City Quilts. Sometimes Pam carries kits for this particular book
and low and behold she had one. So I bought it. And then, the old "well I'm paying for shipping anyway" thing kicked in and I also bought a FQ bundle of sun print by Alison Glass
. These were purely "I want" purchases so BIG TIME SIN
|This is a picture for the kit, not my finished quilt|
Confession #4 - And last but not certainly least, I bought 20 - yes 20 FQs from Ella's Cottage
last weekend. Just because. Well because (she says in a super quick high voice) it was a special MMQG Sew In Day and Leigh Anne was all the way here from PEI... no excuses. EPIC SIN
Sooo, not doing so great at the Fabric Fasting. But I think it could be a lot worse. And frankly, looking back over the last few months, these are the things I have made from my stash...
|I made two of these|
AND I have five more projects on the go made from stash fabrics: Triangles QAL, two Giant Star Quilts, Volume Quilt for TLP and Lush Charm Pack Cherry.
I hereby grant myself a pass on my fabric purchasing sins because I really am working hard to use my stash, AND life is short people. I will do better in the next three months:)
Are you fasting? How is it going? No judgement here :)
