Improvising

I didn’t think that it would be possible, but it happened…I ran out of fabric.  This is one of the quilter’s worst fears, which is the reason why quilter’s stashes are overflowing with excess fabric.

Over a weekend, I went from week 5 to week 9 of the Crazy Mom Quilts Quilt-a-Long.  Since mine was all scrap fabric, I improvised with the remaining quilt design.  Rather than having two extra lengths of fabric, I only have one.

Next, I will be adding a small border around the entire quilt, same as the sashing.  Although improvising, I am still shocked that I went through an overwhelming about of fabric for this project.  It was a great stash buster project, as I started with a full bin and now I have just enough to outline the label before it gets quilted.
