Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have made 2 Turning Twenty quilts and love making them. Since I last posted, I have been really good and not bought anything. Even looked through the CT catalog and I can live without all of it (but I still kick myself for not ordering when they had that fabulous red collection a couple months ago.) So my goal is to make it through July without buying anything either. Hanging onto the wagon tightly!
She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!
Goodness girls, I feel pretty good, I went to Bayside Quilting in Olympia on Sunday with my MIL and only bought the stencil I need to mark a quilt. That was a tough ordeal. She just laughed at me. I made it thru because I knew I had bought three bolts of fabric this month to work with my scraps and a Dear Jane quilt with my brights and batik scraps.

I just found this thread. I tried to get my quilty friends I go to shopping with to do something like this. They are hopeless and awful enablers.
Are there any rules to this challenge?
What are the allowed fabric purchases? Another group with a similar challenge allows backing, batting, background purchases and have a penalty of a FQ for non-legal purchases.
Are purchases for immediate use in warm hug (donation) quilts ok? Kids prints for my 93yr old Mom to turn into tops for a group in Colorado? I can get carried away with cute kids prints, especially frogs, bugs, butterflies, etc.
I definitely need the support and encouragement of a group like this!
So, no rules, try to use stash. Do people post pictures of stash quilts? I went back a few pages but no quilts :-(
Don't worry spider.
I keep house
I donate quilts to the AAQI.
Playswithcolor: Usually we don't post pictures of our quilts, but I bet there is not one of us that wouldn't like to see.
June 26 and no purchases this month!! Woohoo!! I just finished a quilt totally from stash - fabric, batting, thread, etc. The last one I purchased 5/8 of a yard for binding, so things are going okay for me. Truth is I haven't had much time to go to any fabric store and that helps.
