Wow, 365 days without shopping for quilty goodness! I actually did it (other than that yard of black and white stripe I needed to bind the Patches quilt, and a few dollars of odds and ends I bought from Dr. Tom's estate). I'm pretty proud of myself. How much have I saved? A BUNDLE! I keep all receipts for quilting supplies since I do have a small business. Last year alone (and only for January through August 26) the total was around $1800! Plus I made $750 in my living room garage sale I held in July.
Tomorrow I'll post bright and early announcing the winner of my blogiversary giveaway, along with my next quilting adventure, and what my first purchase will be!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
