It may be cold in the Midwest but there are some bargins out there!!

I went to the quilt store today to see if I could find some border fabric for Hands 2 Help quilt #1 (see the button on the side).  
Hands to Help Quilt #1
 Google took a wrong turn and I passed and estate sale that had fabric and yarn. At first I just went past it, in such a rush to get to the quilt store. Well until we figured out we were headed in the wrong direction.  Now I passed that sale once, I couldn't possibly pass it twice!  And oh boy am I glad I stopped.  I got 110 fat quarters 3 quilt backings, 2 quilt kits, 16 yards of fabric and whole stack of charms - all for the whopping price of $77, yep that's right and this is quilt store quality stuff. The quilt kit is a Riley Blake quilt and the other a baby einstein one.  What fun!!!  So glad I didn't pass it up the second time around
Estate Sale find
When I finally got to the quilt store, I was so please with my bargain shopping that I splurged on a couple of books and a Judy N pattern.  Wait, that's not the way it's suppose to work is it???  Hmm I spent more at the quilt store than the Estate Sale and left without any fabric for the border.  That just means that quilt is going borderless :)  And hey one of those books was 50% off and the other was 20%, so still feeling pretty good.  I've been so good all year not buying fabric.  Now I've got it out of my system for a while, hmmmm, maybe ;)

  2. I just read on cyberquilters about your haul and was hoping you posted pics on your blog. You did not disappoint! I think that is every quilter's dream, to find a yard sale with quilt shop quality fabric, buy a carload for $50!
