So, what did I accomplish this month?
I finished one quilt.
My Sun Down quilt only needed binding to finish.
I had a finished flimsy.
My Scrappy Rainbow Medallion Quilt is still not quilted. I need to make a backing for it and buy batting. I'm on a tight budget right now. That's why it's not done.
I made a bunch of quilt blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and started making blocks for my En Provence quilt.
I also added a round to my Millefiori quilt rosette #1. I started an improv quarter log cabin crumb mini quilt too.
I also made two pincushions and a needle case for a swap. My swap partner hasn't received the package yet so I'll show those in February.
My quilt related purchases this month totalled $23.73
I bought 1 3/8 metres of fabric. These were all fat eighth.
I'm going to try to keep track of how much I spend for quilting this year. I'll do one post at the end of each month to see how I'm doing. I have a lot of fabric. But most of my fabric is fat quarters or smaller. I don't have much yardage. I also don't have any batting. So a lot of my purchases will be for batting and backings.
Why am I watching how much I spend?
Well, my daughter is going to university in September. She is taking Neuroscience. She loves learning about the brain. Lol! She will be going to school out of town. So the costs are much higher then when my boys went to community college in town. We are paying a chunk of her expenses and she is working towards paying a chunk. It will be about $20000.00 per year for four years. And if she decides to do pre-med after, well it will be even more. So, I'm trying to be good and use what I have. If any of you feel like getting rid of any fabric, scraps or whatever..... think of me. Lol!
