A friend of a friend of my dear hubby asked him if I’d be interested in some fabric from an estate sale. Well, sure, I guess (hoping it wouldn’t smell musty). How much? $30 for a “Tupperware bin.” OK – let’s go for it… Well, how lucky am I? I’ve hit the Fabric Jackpot!!! A true bonanza of goodies, packed in a giant bin and two boxes.
Here are some of the piles….Lots of pretty reds. How cute is that western fabric with the boots and hats?
Beautiful batiks. Love the green with the pretty splotches of color:
Lots and lots and lots of flannel for baby quilts. Most of this I will donate to the JPS Charity Baby Quilt group at our guild.
There are some odd fabrics, upholstery fabric, apron panels, etc. that will go on the free table at the next guild meeting:
But also very pretty blues:
And purples!!! I bleed purple so this is perfect!
A few fat quarters of civil war fabric:
A wonderful selection of greens and oranges:
How about this scrumptious selection?
There is some serious yardage here, y’all! At least 2 1/2 yards of the teal paisley!
A little bit of yellow. I’m guessing this was not her favorite color, although the bumble bee fabric is super cute!
A little bit of Christmas:
Some neutrals and browns:
Blacks and grays…
Even this wonderful Japanese fabric!
A bunch of bright and pretty florals too!
Here is some fabric that I can’t decide if I love it or hate it! Swirly colors are pretty, background color not so much… What do you think?
How about this sunflower panel?
And then I came across a big pile of log cabin blocks – 31 thirteen inch blocks! This was one serious project left unfinished. As I looked at her stash I realized some of the fabrics I had sorted into different piles belonged with this project:
Here are a few of the blocks on the design wall with possible borders….
There are several possibilities. Wish I could have known what she planned. I think I’d like to finish this project. Hopefully someone will help me finish a few of mine after my big quilting estate sale!
Oh, but wait! There’s more! A Quilting Frame!
Dear hubby and I put it together. All the parts were there although some of the parts were coming apart. Not sure I’ll ever use it but it was a fun discovery…
All of this for $30! And, no – it didn’t smell musty at all!
Now I call that a Fabric Jackpot!
