I need to get back to sewing more if I am going to keep buying fabric….or at least that’s what I tell myself. I never really worry about what I buy as the price I pay for the thrifted fabric is minimal and someday if I tire of it I don’t mind passing it on to charity quilters.
So what did I buy this time thrifting?…..These two packs. $2 for one and $3 for the other.
I’m typically not a big black and white fan but with our school colors being red, white and black, I often make quilts for graduates with these colors…so it’s great to have more in the stash especially since I made primarily make scrap quilts.
I got them home to check out the contents. Here’s a good look at the goodies…..
I got the pieces all out. They seem to range from scrap to 1/3 yard cuts. Perfect for a scrap quilt maker. All are name brands.
Here are the pieces that I’ll be putting into my black stash….
Notice the ones across the back-those four that are top left? Those are ones I sorted out that will likely find a new home…well at least not in the black or white box. I’m a little bit of a purist. I wouldn’t add those pieces to a black and white quilt.
There were two more in the bunch. I loved them both. They will go in with the whites and blacks respectively but that has me thinking…a black white and red quilt. Aren’t those two prints the best??
For now..these are going in the stash. We’ll see when they make it out and into a quilt. For now, I have them for safe keeping.
