We are one month into our fabric moratorium and it would be great to hear from everyone to find out how you are getting on. What have you been working on? What have you (or have not) purchased? If you have used a variant of the original rules, please share with us your guidelines and your progress.
The original thread can be found here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-79756-1.htm
The original rules/guidelines are:
* no fabric purchases to start a new quilt top (till 1 November 2011)
“Allowed” purchases include any item required to finish an existing project (either WIP or UFO), including but not limited to:
* backing or binding fabric
* fabric (if nothing in your stash will work)
* thread or notions
* fabric purchased on a plan prior to 1 December 2010 (e.g. block of the month)
Some people have chosen a variation of the rules/guidelines to suit their circumstances, e.g. a 3 month moratorium, or commitment to use 1 fabric from their stash each month.
Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you all and seeing your work.
I wish you all a very safe and happy New Year.
