Oh my goodness, the fabric! You know how sometimes an ad will say "quilting fabric", and it turns out to be all powder blue and maroon calico grandma stuff? Well, this was just the opposite! It was all bright, new, fun stuff - mostly Alexander Henry, but a bunch of others too.
Check this out - on the left is yardage and half yards, and the stack on the right is all FQs. Yeah, I went a little crazy! I was like a kid in a candy store - the husband was hup-hupping me, so I just grabbed anything that looked pretty. And then I had to wait a WHOLE DAY to look closer at what I had picked up. Agony, I tell ya!
Here's a closeup of some of my favorites...
Okay, are you ready for the numbers? That's about 37 yards of mostly designer fabric, for $32. I know, unbelievable. I've found so much great fabric at yard sales this year! I keep thinking I'll never see another great sale like the last one, but they just keep coming (knock on wood!). My husband said that he thinks Seattle must be where quilters go to retire. :-)
I guess I'm superstitious, and I think that maybe if I share some of my great scores, I'll find more. :-) So, let's do another giveaway... how about a surprise package? Leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite color is. I'll pick a winner on Sunday night. Your prize will be a random mix of fat quarters and/or fat eighths that all contain your favorite color. I'm not sure how much total fabric there will be, that depends on the color you pick and where I have to ship it to (international is fine)!
