Hey everyone! So right now, I'm working on finishing quilt on my long arm and doing a customer quilt. I have to work them both at the same time, because I don't want to take the quilt off of my long arm and then put it back on *shiver*, and the customer quilt needs to be done in like a week (yikes!). So... I am working on both at the same time... No small task, trust me. But I'm muddling along.
So for the last two weeks I have had no finishes, big or small. I have been quilting and designing, and last Friday, I went to MQX East in Manchester, New Hampshire. MQX is the Machine Quilters Expo, and it was AWESOME. I took 2 classes from Karlee Porter, which were amazing and now I'm going to be doing her Graffiti Quilting Master Class starting in May, which I am SO excited for! The classes I took at MQX were lecture/demos, but I did a ton of drawing and it was freaking awesome! I'm so excited for the Master Class to start!
So my fabric count hasn't budged, except for adding more, as I purchased the fabric for the customer quilt that I'm currently working on. So the numbers look like this:
Fabric in this week: 13
Fabric out this week: 0
Net Fabric this week: 13
Net Fabric 2018: 83.938
Yes, that is approaching 100 yards of fabric over where I started, it's weird, though, because it feels like my stash is not getting any bigger. I guess it's one of those things that slowly creeps up on you.
Today, I am working heads down on my customer quilt, I want to see if I can finish the whole character today, so that next week, I just have to finish up the background, the quote and then figure out how to quilt this whole monstrosity. :) So, until next time...
