I hit my favorite thrift store again….
The fabric selection wasn’t what it was a couple weeks ago when I really scored but that’s okay….as I always tell you, I don’t NEED fabric. I did pick up a few pieces though.
These are only 50 cents each so they are super hard for me to resist. The top two (floral and polka dot) are actually corduroy. They are SUPER soft-not like the stuff I remember as a kid. The rows are really close and narrow too. I have a collection of corduroy fabrics that I really want to make into a quilt someday. These are going in the collection.
The orangish fabric on the lower left is really a bit more orange that it looks….I don’t have many orange fabrics at all so this was a good one to get….the strawberry fabric is enough to back a baby quilt. Each of the pieces are over a yard….See why it’s so hard for me not to buy them at 50 cents each???
My favorite find of the day was this….It’s a 100% cotton duvet cover. I love the colors and prints of it. It doesn’t feel like it’s been washed lots of time either. It was $5. It is big enough to use for at least two quilt backings.
Some people poo-poo using sheets or fabrics like this for quilt backings but me, I have no problem with it. My machine doesn’t act up with this…and neither does my thread. So it’s a win for me!
I’m off to do some sewing. With what fabric I’ve bought lately I REALLY need to sew so I can use some of it up!!
