I didn't purchase any fabric this week. My Mom and I have been sorting and cutting to size a bunch of scraps. The main purpose for this is to find strips in greens and browns to make a rug. I purchased a rug size loom at Road to California Quilt Show last weekend. It is said that 17 yards of fabrics will be required to make a rug that fits this loom. 17 yards will certainly help me use my stash! I've got the warping on the loom now and just finished preparing the weaving strips. This being the first rug to make I really don't know if that ball of 2 1/2" strips will be enough. I guessed on the 1 1/4" warping strips and fell short by about a third of what I needed to fill the loom. I have plenty to build another ball...
I've not done much quilting this week other than the Travel Case. I'll be gathering fabric today to start my February UFO. See how others use up their fabrics at Patchwork Times. Hope your team is a winner today!
