My goal of not buying quilting fabric and finishing unfinished projects started in January 2009 upon my return from Christmas in California and New Year's in Aklavik!
In January I managed to get get two quilt tops finished. One of which (the black and white Fence Rail) is for Tommy as he is has yet to get a quilt of his own. I had been collecting black and white fabrics for quite a while but picked up the border fabric in California to finish it all.
The second quilt top was made with a jelly roll that I also picked up in California. This was the first time I had ever purchased pre-cut fabric before. I used a variation from a pattern in a quilt magazine as the design. I picked up border fabric during a curling trip to Yellowknife.
My one exception to buying fabric is that I can purchase fabric required to finish projects!
Neither of these quilt tops are actually quilted yet as I will do this on my trip South. I will be heading down for Quilt SK and plan on dropping these off in Alberta to be quilted at that time.
