More Bounty

I trekked off to Good Will on Wed. on my way to the grocery store. I really didn't expect to find anything more because they had a big 50% off sale on Sat. I had to really dig in the wire shelves and ended up with six bags of fat quarters that were $2.99 each. If you have ever wondered what 95, washed and pressed fat quarters look like, here you go. (Now I know that you have missed sleep pondering that great question.) There are a lot of name brands in there, a few that are really special and some that are down right butt ugly. The ugly ones will go great in a rag rug, right? I think this was the fat quarter section of the stash that I bought from last week.




Here are my very favorite ones. I have mentioned how I like bright colors. These just reached out and made me very happy. Will I ever use them? It is not likely but for now, just looking at them is fun. The ones with the black background are designs by Laurel Burch. Not something I would ever buy but definitely something to enjoy.



As to the question of what I am going to do with all this, where am I going to store it? I will think about that tomorrow, or maybe even the next day.

Those brights look great. I'm with you, I could just stare at them for a while.

Gee! I need to hit YOUR GoodWill! All mine ever has is old pillowcases! How are you holding up in this heat? I swam TWICE yesterday and would have again if I was not a bad girl and hitting the quilt shop (which had batiks at 30% off!) If it will help my D-backs win, I will swim twice DAILY!

Amazing find! Wow! I have never looked in a Goodwill store. Rather than find a place to store all that, just stitch it up! :)

Wow, You made quite a haul in getting these fabric pieces. I am sure you will find a place to store them. Our Goodwill is a very small one and I never find any fabric...but that is OK as I have found some other "treasures" that makes me happy.

I like those brights too...especially the ones with the black background. Black seems to make the colors really pop. I know you will be creative and find a place to store all that fabric.
