    **Jackpot!!**

    about 8 yrs ago my great-aunts mother passed away. she was a seamstress for many years in Lancaster, PA and over the years acquired mass amounts of fabric. anyways, my aunt asked if i would want any of the fabric so of course, I said yes..... well, she brought me a truck load of boxes... all full of fabric. I put them away and forgot about them......

    ..... UNTIL TODAY!!!! I thought I died and went to heaven!!! There are hundreds of Dresden Plate pieces cut.... along with various sizes of squares..... WOW!!!!! 90% of the fabric is 1950-1960's era and I am lovin' it!!!!!

    Now I just need to decide what I want to do with all this treasure!!!
