In continuation of my goal to not purchase any new fabric until 2012– thankfully, not too far away – I’ve been working on another scrap project. Just finished up the binding last night.
I’m feeling a lot less guilty/absurd about my tendency to hang onto every little itty bitty bit of fabric. Some of the pieces in this quilt are as little as 1″ square. I guess frugality has also made me patient.
I’m finding immense gratification in this approach to my quiltmaking. In a funny way, it’s kind of a relief to get by on what I already have and not feel overwhelmed by fabric choices. That’s not to say I won’t enjoy some fabric purchasing come to January, but I’m looking forward to a few more weeks of making do.
