It’s official. I’ve now bought an obscene amount of fabric this year. This puts me in the ranks of not knowing what I have or where it is. I looked for a set of charm squares last night and couldn’t find them. I’m sure they’ll turn up once I finish the project.
The estate sale happened yesterday. She had the biggest fabric stash I’ve ever seen personally, although I know bigger stashes exist. There had to have been thousands of yards of fabric. My mind couldn’t process the scope of looking at everything. I bought a pile of yardage, a kitted UFO for a twin size quilt and a couple books. The book collection was almost as impressive as the fabric stash.
I started sewing the UFO together last night and realized I’m short more than a few pieces. I never thought to pick up the yardage that went with it, even though I saw several pieces. I have enough coordinating fabrics in my stash to finish the quilt and add variety. No way am I buying more fabric.
Total damage 27.75 yard in, including the UFO. That’s the most fabric I’ve ever added at one time. Honestly, at $2/yard I wish I’d bought more. On the plus side, I finished the fat quarter challenge quilt for 2.25 yards out.
