Funny story here - when I was calculating my fabric needs for the commissioned "Babes in the Woods" quilt, I figured it out alright. Then, late at night when I was going to place my order, I thought to myself, "no way, that is far too much of THAT fabric," and calculated again, very quickly.
The fabric arrived, and I was happy!! After a mishap with one of the dyes during prewashing (oh, thank goodness for Clorox 2 and Tide stain release), I was set to starch, iron, cut and sew, and off I went - and here is where it gets interesting... about 3/4 of the way through, I realized that I actually didn't have enough of my fabric for the binding - how many times can I groan here??? So, after scolding myself for a) not trusting my initial calculations (which were totally correct), and b) calculating quickly in my head, right before bed (*groan, groan, groan!*), I set my work aside, ordered more fabric, and went on to preparing for an online class that I enrolled in (fyi, it is called The Artist's Toolbox - it is being taught at Quilt University by instructor Lyric Kinard, and it is so much fun!)
So, as it stands, here is what I have done for the commissioned quilt so far:
Now, off to play some more, and see what I can make to add to my "Artist's Toolbox!"
