Right Place, Right Time

Have you ever had one of those moments when you were in just the right place at the right time to get the bargain of the century?  I was so proud of myself for sewing more yards of fabric into quilts this year than I had purchased.... until now.

Yep, blew it right out of the water.  Stopped in the thrift store with a donation recently and took a look around while I was there.  This is what came home with me.

More than three tubs of fabric - at least 60 yards.  There were at least two completer kits for queen quilts, but most were fat quarter, half-yard or one-yard pieces of Thimbleberries. How could I resist!  It all averaged under $2 per yard.

I am so grateful to that wonderful quilter who decided she could pass these along!   And if you're looking for a little extra fabric from Thimbleberries quilt club 2004 I might be your gal.

Occasionally I have seen exchanges of small quilts or blocks, but they always want 'quilt shop quality' fabrics.  I've always been a bargain fabric shopper, so never felt that what I have in the stash was 'brand name' good enough.  Now, I have an ample stock to work with!
