I stopped at thrift store…I know that isn’t a surprise. I’ve been trying really hard to wean myself for getting obsessed about fabric there so I did something different. I didn’t go to fabric first. I went to picture frames. I have a couple things I need frames for so decided to check and see what was available. I refuse to spend the money and have things professionally framed.
Anyway, as I was shopping a blog reader stopped me and said, “I thought your cart would be full of fabric”. That made me giggle. I told her, “No, I hadn’t been that way yet”.
I roamed the store and eventually got to the fabric spot. I expected it to be empty if a blog reader had been here before me but nope. I found some fabrics. I think I find quite a bit of fabric there as most people would likely pass this fabric by. Not me. I have so many outlets for it all.
These two will hang out for awhile and I’ll see if they can be used as charity quilt bindings. There is a 1/2 yard of green and just over a yard of purple.
This one has two yards and will be passed on to the ladies in Oelwein that I send fabric to.
This one I’m keeping. I love the print…so cute.
All of the above pieces were 50 cents each. That’s the regular price unless priced separately.
This piece I “broke the bank” for and paid all of $1.50 for it. Check it out….Can you believe that there is just over six yards of it. This will make a backing for sure. I LOVE when I find a good backing so cheap!!
I also bought a duvet cover that I’ll use as a backing. $5 for that but it might be enough to make backings for two quilts….or if it only covers one quilt, it’s still a deal.
I did find a couple picture frames. You’ll have to watch for future blog posts to see what I’m doing with them!
All in all, it was a great day for thrifting!!
