Luckily I made some progress yesterday in the sewing room to offset some of the added fabric. I made all of the bear paws for the Quilt-Along, also cut up several FQs for a project I'm starting using the Sweet Sixteen pattern by Judy Reynolds. I am using the Recipe for Friendship monthly FQ bundle from last year. I am also going to use the Baskets of Flowers FQ bundle I just got since they coordinate with Recipe for Friendship. I'm not a real big fan of Mary Englebreit so I'll use them all up in this top. ;0) I also started on Washington Medallion and I'm going to count all 6 yards of the background fabric now. So my used total is 8 yards.
My numbers to date:
- Fabric Added: 16 yards
- Fabric Added to Date: 43 yards
- Fabric Used: 8 yards
- Fabric Used to Date: 61.75 yards
- Net Used: 18.75 yards
I'm really excited to see that I'm over 50 yards used already and it's only March. I'm a little disappointed about the amount added but there really hasn't been anything that has been "just because" until this week and actually I do have something in mind for them. Everything has been bought for a specific project.
My goal for this coming week is:
- finish bear paw blocks today
- finish quilting 30s Pinwheel star
- continue working on the feathered star for Washington Medallion
- continue cutting FQs for Recipe for Friendship Flower Baskets
