I did a lot of sewing this week, but most of it was quilting, on items already basted, so not much usage to report. I used 1/2 yard binding for 2 quilts, and 1/2 yard backing for one.
Another trip to the quilt store netted me 2 yards of backing for the Feb colour challenge, and 1/2 yard to fill out the palette for March. This colour challenge is a lot of fun, but it is not being very friendly to my pocketbook :)
So, for this week, that's 1 yard out, 2.5 yards in
Total this year:
18 1/4 yards out, 57.5 yards in
Net for 2012: 39 1/4 yards in
What's next for me? I want to quilt the indigo quilt from last June's colour challenge. It's already backed and basted, and I need the pins back if I'm going to baste this month's UFO. I have 2 "quilt kits" in hand - that is, fabric purchased to make a quilt, but no design in mind. So I want to spend some time with EQ this month, and see if I can come up with a design I like for those fabric sets. And of course I have the March colour challenge.
Fabric is bought for that one and a pattern picked, so I just need to get started. Here's the colour palette from Vicky, and my fabric choices. My yellow is much brighter in person, and I thought the black was blacker than that. I may look for something darker in that one.
