    I should go take pics of the fabric in the garage to share with all of you. Today I am sure I went through about 10,000 yards at least and I bet there is only 1,000 I am willing to get rid of.
    I almost wish my garage sale was tomorrow, I am half afraid I might change my mind about some of it. For all you quilters it really is not good for much of anything quilt related, except the backs, art quilts and bags. If I ever end up rescuing 20 tons of fabric again, I want it to be clean and smell good. I also want every piece of it to be useable.
    Then again I do not think I would ever ever ever rescue 20 tons of fabric again.

    Ok I have to ask! How did you wind up with 20 tons of fabric? I would love to see a picture of it all.

    Yes I did in 2008 and I have been washing it, sewing it and figuring out ways to get rid of it ever since.

    This is a very small portion of it. I love it, it is odd sized pieces and all kinds of stuff, some one who sews would know. Oh the coat is confetti stuff on one side and some kind of soft wool on the other.
