Sorry Sadie. I fell off the wagon. I did buy some fabric the week of Jan 18. Blame it on my sister & your mom. I do admit I was weak, and went into the fabric store with my sister. I did however, spend less than $15.
Fabric Bought this week: 3.25 yards
Fabric used this week: 2.5 yards
Bought YTD: 3.25 yards
Used YTD: 3.0 yards
Net yardage: + 0.25 yards
My cousin & his wife just had a baby boy. My cousin is a HUGE Dallas Mavericks fan. So, while I was poking about in the “Half Off the Clearance Price” fabric. I found nearly a whole bolt of Mavs fabric @ $2 per yard. Normally I would have snatched up a bunch and figured I would make him something fun later. I restrained myself and bought only a yard and a yard of blue flannel as backing. I now have a finished baby blankie.
I also picked up some fabric for Lady_Belle’s butterflies for her ATWQB quilt block. She has some beautiful fabrics with gold ink highlights and these two pieces will look good with her quilt. I needed the right browns to finish the attic window frames too.
The Halloween fabrics were on sale (60% off) and I needed to make a few extra 9 patches for my Halloween quilt. I used most of them for Mom’s quilt top. I did some separate swaps for blocks and those needed the spacer blocks too. This is the fabric that I haven’t used yet, as I haven’t had time to get back to the Spooky quilt.
Weeks 5 & 6
Jan. 25 – Jan. 31 No new fabric bought.
Feb. 1 – Feb. 7 No new fabric bought.
I will have the ATWQB blocks to deduct at the end of this week. Whoo Hoo!
