It’s official. I have just scored myself with the amount of fabric I have. I counted up the fat quarters and half metres I had folded into this shelf of my storage system. It amounts to 6.25 metres in just that tiny space.
Well I have 72 of those in the storage system
Which means that I must have about 450 metres of fabric. And this is fabric that I do not use for my special appliqué quilts. It gets used for my students and also for quilts for Project Linus and other charity quilts. So I have worked out that if I do not buy another fat quarter I have enough fabric to make about 70 charity quilts. I know I sew fast but this is slightly frightening!!!!!Especially as this year I am using my pre-cut strips for the quilt tops so that means it will be more like 120 quilts.
But I have made a start
This is made from my black and grey strips with the contrast orange to lift it a bit. I can see this being given to a teenager hopefully. It measures 60 x 65”. The back is made up of fabrics from my stash.
So I think I had better get sewing!
