You might remember that a couple weeks ago I told you that I had gotten some goodies at local thrift store like this box of goodies…all denim..all cut up into pieces. I had said that someday I’m doing a denim quilt and I still have intentions too. Part of me loved the top quilt block that was in the box of denim. What you can’t see is that the dark blue is actually corduroy. Isn’t that a fun block mixing the denim and corduroy?
But where to get corduroy??? Where oh where….Apparently all I needed to do is wait a few days, stop at the thrift store again and the corduroy would magically be there….because that’s exactly what I did. I went back to the store and found a box that had corduroy pieces on top of the box. I don’t remember…I think the whole box was $3.
I was willing to spend $3 for a someday quilt. After all, I already had the box of denim. This will be a cheap quilt…should I ever get to it.
Once home, I decided to look through the box. There was corduroy on the top…see the stack?
But below, there were more fabrics.Be still my heart. there is something that looks very double wedding ring.
But alas, it wasn’t anything as amazing as I had hoped.
While at the store, they had another flat of fabric. $5 was the price on this one. It’s filled with lots of fabrics that were all about 4 yards each. I LOVED the green one on top of the box. That one will be great for a recycled shirt quilt. I was really excited about this find. I would have gladly paid $5 just for the green piece of fabric.
I also picked up a separate piece of fabric. This one. Kelli thought I was crazy for buying it. It’s cotton and it was only 50 cents. Besides that, there are 4 yards there. She’s convinced I’ll never use the piece.
Do you know I think of that??? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. I think it will likely be a quilt back but just because she said that, I really do plan to make sure I use it!
It was a fun thrifting day. $7.50 bought a lot of fabric!!
