April started out with 1 fabric purchase: A fat eight bundle of Sweetwater wishes, a yard for biding, and 5 yards of backing. All was off 40% off. I was so proud of myself. I was really making a concentrated effort to not purchase so much fabric.
Backing Binding A
All of that changed when I started selling off some of my stash April 18th off Instagram. I posted about this here. Part of my pledge was that I am able to use any money I make from selling off my stash. Well, I sold over $500 worth, and then proceeded to spend said amount! Not going to lie, it was a bit of a rush!
I went a little overboard! I didn’t spend more money than I made, but I did buy lots of fabric. I bought few more yards of Tula Pink’s Nightshade with the intent to resell them on Instagram.
I purchased a half bundle of Tula Pink Fox Field, $3.18 a half yard.
I thought that was a decent deal. The etsy shop was having a moving sale, so in addition to the bundle I purchased backing and binding for a Fox Field quilt and binding for a Acacia quilt.
And a few extra pieces of fabric, couldn’t resist the temptation!
I purchased the backing and binding of my Acacia quilt from Hawthorne Threads.
I purchased the backing for my Tula Pink Salt Water quilt – I was able to find the backing and binding for $6 a yard. I choose Salt Water Tortoise Shell and Submarines, both in coral.
Also on the scorecard of money leaving my checking account, 2 yards of Robert Kaufman dots to complete my Lots of Dots Arithmetic quilt. Decided to go bigger being I had leftovers, just needed 2 fat quarters to add variety and a yard for binding.
Most of the fabric purchased in April was either to complete a quilt, for backing, or for binding. The Tula Pink Fox Field Half Yard Bundle was a treat for me. If you haven’t caught on yet, I am a huge Tula Pink fan, a #tulatroop member!
I consider April a bit of a wash. There was a lot of yardage moved in and out of my house! Not sure that is progress, but am willing to be optimistic that I am abiding by the Fabriholics Anonymous rules.
