Kalissa and I were out one day. It’s been kind of fun that she’s been on maternity leave. We have so much more time together. I’m getting spoiled. I’m going to miss this once she’s back to work full time.
We, of course, hit up the thrift store. See that HUGE comforter plastic bag. It was filled with fabric all of $6.
I was sure I would donate a lot it to community quilters in my area but here were a few things I was interested. Stay tuned and I’ll show you what….
These two pieces weren’t part of the $6 bag. They were 50 cents each…3 yards in the bundle on the left and 5 yards on the one on the right. GREAT deal.
I got a few other things….blank cards to write thank you notes. As of the writing of this post, I am all caught up on my thank yous. I’m out of blank card though. I buy and use a lot of them.
The cookbook will go in the antique booth and the straw trivet will go to Kayla. She started collecting them.
So now for that HUGE bag of fabric….These I am keeping to frame cross stitch pieces…
The yellow pieces are 3 yards worth. The others are about 1/2 yard each.
I’ve started collecting for MacKinac Straits quilt by Bonnie Hunter. I haven’t nailed down colors but these have potential.
This fabric was fun and funky. I love it…
I’m thinking about making a stitching project bag with these….we’ll see.
I’m keeping this flannel…I have a flannel tutorial project I am going to share with you soon.
LOOK. Here is what got me to purchase the $6 bag of fabric….The CALICOS. I am going to make a calico quilt sometime…I keep collecting. I have enough to start deciding on a pattern but haven’t had the time to find a pattern yet. I can’t wait. I think it will be so fun.
There were 2 yards in the bundle on the left!
Below is all of the fabric that I passed on. This will all be given to local group that make quilts for people in our community that have needs.
I sure had fun sorting and digging through that big bag. I’d say I ended up keeping about 1/3 of the fabric.
It was a good thrift store day!
