Stash Report

On the day that Kelli and I went to Country Threads we stopped at a thrift store along the way.  I’ve been there before and they often have fabric.  I couldn’t resist not stopping.

All of the fabric there is $1 a yard.  The pieces that I am most excited about are the white and black polka dot and the piece on the bottom.

The white and black polka dot is two yards worth.  That will likely be a background in some upcoming project.   The bottom piece is 3 yards worth and I think that will be the backing for an upcoming baby quilt we have planned.

I just love finding bargains that make my quilting more affordable.

Some people shy away from fabrics like the one below.  When I read the tag it says that it is a Marcus Brothers fabric…No, I don’t LOVE the design but cutting it up and throwing it into a scrap quilt is a perfect option for it….remember it was only 50 cents…and it is name brand quality fabric.

Had I not told you, you’d have never know that the fabric came from a thrift store.  After I snapped the photo I cut it up and put it in the scrap bucket.  One day, you’ll see it in a scrap quilt.

That’s my stash report courtesy of the thrift store.  We did have fabric out though…..

We had a Moda Bake Shop project this week.  If you missed it, here it is.

    We have a charity shop that takes in a lot of fabric, yarns and haberdashery from a local department store, excess after annual stock take I reckon to make way for fresh stock.
    Ive picked up so many bargains from there.
    But I also buy at car boot sales childrens and ladies clothing, which after a good wash cuts down nicely and provides some wonderful cottons, as well as decorative pockets or trims ( and wool fabrics for rag rugging too).
    I think you got great buys there!
    The house is certainly taking shape now for you!
    Loved seeing that Tyvek was used for the walls lol and to think its basically the same product we use for mixed media, with heat guns and markels, just thicker!
