I began a project page to list the things I have going on. By clicking the arrow next to each item, I can enter details and progress. I can list what I need to purchase, due dates, and even set priorities. All right this will work!
I did decide to try the Quiltingcalc app from Kauffman fabrics suggested by Deb at Simple Life Quilts. I know I can do math, but this little app has a lot going for it. I went to Marietta's Quilt Shop to pick up some background fabric for my project for the Heart Blog Hop coming up in Feb. Before I left, I took a quick photo with the phone of the design and double checked the pattern for what I needed. Good thing I did, as I need 2 fabrics for the background. I listed that on the project reminder.
At the shop, I found my fabric and was just browsing. Oh, there were some really pretty red ones. Out came the phone and I looked at the pattern, and decided I could use more than 3 reds in the center. Matter of fact, I better think about binding since I was making the pattern larger. On Quiltingcalc app I enter the size I expected to end up with and hit calculate. Looks like I need an extra 3/8 yard of fabric for binding. Guess what, I came home with...... an extra 1/2 yard of a couple of red fabrics. Remember to build that stash. Oh boy, I now have an extra excuse when I come home with extra feel good fabrics! Do you think I'm in trouble or just enabled?
