February Fabric Usage

Keeping track of the fabric that comes in and out of my studio has seriously been SO motivating! I've actually been surprised! January went well enough, with a net of -4.83 yards. But February has been substantially better, especially considering I used over 14 yards in making my Cross Country quilt alone. Consider that along with several smaller projects, and I made a major dent. Yay!

February Fabric Usage
Used up: 22.77 yards
Brought in: 3.5 yards
Net: -19.27 yards
Year to date: -24.1 yards


Mostly due to the Improv Triangle Sewalong, I found myself dipping into my scrap basket more than I had in a long while. That felt good too! So did taking the finished project to work and hanging it in my office for some fun color. Love the appeal of a freshly finished project.... it never gets old, does it?

  1. I love yours - and a lot of the other improv triangle quilts - so much! My fingers are really itching to start one myself. And improv - that has not happend before :) I am glad you had so much fun sewing and that you can see it in your numbers/stats. xo Melanie PS: The quilt must be an awesome add on to your office and making all your co-workers jealous :)

  2. Your improv triangles looks fantastic on that wall. I'm getting closer to a finished top with mine - puzzling through those slabs. Next time I'll play with scraps rather than a bundle, I think.

  3. This is gorgeous! I had hoped to do the improv SAL, but life demanded it be another time. How inspiring to see beautiful pieces that will keep this front of mind.

  6. That turned out so good! Good on you using all that fabric!! I'm wondering the same thing Ellyn is! How do you calculate the scrap fabric?!

  7. The improv triangles quilt is so good! I wish I had plain walls at work so I could hang a little quilt. And great job with the fabric usage.
