The problem with leaders and enders is that, well, I don’t have any. I spent time cutting this afternoon.
And here are more scraps, in boxes under the ironing board, waiting to be pressed before I cut them.
There is also pressed but not cut fabric covering the extension table. Leaders and enders are messy business.
Because cutting fabric is so boring, I got distracted. Do you see the batting and purple fabric under the cutting mat? That’s another small quilt with batting and backing, waiting for me to baste it. It caught my eye while I was digging for scraps and I decided to finish it.
While I was digging for backing fabric for that quilt, a fat quarter pack caught my eye. A friend just gave me a pattern that uses 12 fat quarters and one yard of fabric to make a quilt big enough to donate to Safe House, the Ann Arbor Guild charity of choice. Of course, I had to start digging through the box I brought home this month to look for coordinating fabric.
The Guild gets so much fabric donated for the Safe House quilts that no one person could store it all. After the meeting, many members take a box of fabric home to store until the next meeting. I always grab a box. It’s kinda like grandkids. When I’m done playing with it, I give it back.
So now I have fabric pulled for yet another quilt.
This is what happens after I finish something. I want to start EVERYTHING.
I did stay out of the quilt shops this week, so no fabric added. I used .75 yards on the star quilt. With so many projects going, the stash numbers should look good by the end of the year.
Fabric Added: 29.25 yards
Fabric Used: 24.5 yards
Net Added: 4.75 yards
