This was a week where I did a reasonable amount of sewing but also hit a few fabric stores. Went along for the ride with a couple of friends to one shop and purchased a couple of half yard pieces of fabric for table runners and a yard of fabric that goes with a panel that I already had. Loved lots more of their fabrics but I didn't need anything and they are also the most expensive quilt shop in the area.
Yesterday we took a ride to Fredericksburg, VA to look around a bunch of their small antique shops and managed to also find a few fabric stores. I just looked in most of them but bought some white with pin dot black fabric that will go with so many different projects and a piece of baby fabric as nice ones are hard to find.
The sewing part of my week was spent cutting out a couple of projects, piecing this simple baby quilt..
I also finally got the piano key border made and on my black/white and red quilt. The quilt kind of grew and ended up measuring about 60 x 77...
It took a long time to make the border but I am happy with the results.
So my stats for the week are:
Fabric purchased this week: 9 yards
Fabric used this week: 11.25 yards (backing, baby and lap quilts)
Fabric purchased YTD: 33.75
Fabric used YTD: 102.25
Ok, by the end of June I hope to use another 100 yards of fabric, do you think I will make it?
