If You Give a Mouse a Cookie...or Send Me To a Fabric Sale
I received an e-mail from the Golden D'Or announcing their big 30% off pre-inventory sale. I had pretty much talked myself out of going then relented since I needed a lot of backings for already completed quilt tops. This first pic shows the 59.25 yards that I bought. Yes that number is correct....sadly. There are 5 backings in there. Then the Halloween fabric is destined for my charity stash. Enough of that fabric type now. Wow I have a lot! There are 4 pieces in there destined for my attempt to bust all my animal prints. 24 cuts in all.
After I left Golden D'Or with Babs I went to the Mesquite Quilt Show. 2 panels and 2.5 yards of yardage that coordinates with one if the panels. Just under 4 yards here. 4 cuts in all. Plus I got that cute little tote.
The next afternoon I made my Walmart run. I noted that I needed some black for a quilt I plan to make while at Mom's and I was just too lazy to look for any in my stash. My Walmart is discontinuing their fabric department. The one I frequent in Monroe has already done so. All fabric was marked 50% off. No black cotton. I decided to look for a backing I needed and found it. 37.5 yards in total. Most of these will be used to make QOVs. 10 cuts there.
Just over 100 yards. 38 cuts in all. I am going to avoid fabric stores like the plague for awhile! I sure did have fun though!
