Goodwill and the thrift store were good to me again.
Here’s my latest acquisition. The red and brown each have two yards each. I paid $1 for the red and $2 for the brown. The red I’ve already used a bit of it.
The white is silk matka. There is about a yard of it there. The fabric is really expensive, something like $20 a yard. It’s great for doing stitching designs. I first learned about it from the gals at Country Threads. It’s a wonderful product. I haven’t been doing a lot of stitching lately but I was willing to spend the 50 cents for the piece just to have it in the closet when I want it.
The blue is a yard’s worth too…another 50 cent buy.
By no means could I sew with only the stuff I buy thrifted but it sure makes it fun sewing when I know part of what I have I got on the cheap.
This week I had a finish but it was a charity finish and all the fabric including the binding was sent by the gift-er so nothing for me to report. If you missed that quilt, you can see it here.
Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 42 yards store bought + 23 Moda fabric + 5 yards of recycled fabric…
