Yes, I admit I have bought a significant amount of fabric in the last week. But there are specific uses for those pieces I purchased.
For example, I took a road trip toJ&B Quilting in Lafayette this morning. All I bought was 2 yards of that particular grey green for the Tea Towel Quilt I can find nowhere else in the entire world.
And I needed a back for the star quilt. It requires 4 yards and I really don't have those large pieces in my fabric collection. On top of that, it was an odd blueish blue greenish green. Not one or the other. So I got an odd blueish greenish blue green for the back.
So that is six yards incoming. But I can put the Star on the frame now and claim both the front and the back as used when I finish it up.
And I can continue to work on the Tea Towel Quilt and get that done.
And I had nothing for the River City Mystery Quilt. So I ordered in some batiks to fill that gap. I envisioned it in batik and had none. So now I have 5.5 extra yards for that as well. Of course it arrives the day I get 5.5 yards from J&B in Lafayette!
How smart was that????
About the TNT Class at Quilt Corner in Central. I am doing a right bit of traveling, aren't I??? And I am the one who hates traveling! Go figure, the call of fabric is strong!
The Thread, Needles, Tension class was a good one. Not as much about tension as I would have liked, but I did learn some things. If you get a chance to take a class on thread and tension, I say go for it. there were some things I was confused about on setting up the machine and this cleared up somme misgivings as well.
It was good.
