    Look what I found today!

    I was on my way home from town and saw a garage sale sign. I had a bit of time, so I checked it out. Turns out the gal was a quilter and was getting rid of a few pieces of fabric..... I bought a bit over 20 yds for $25!!! She either liked purple or didn't like purple..a lot of purple...butterfly fabric, fish fabric, a yard of red and a blue and white print. Here are some pictures. The last two were "pieces". Looked like the leftovers from quilt backings, but plenty of it. Nothing under a yard! I'm still doing the "happy dance"!

    Nice Haul!!! I'm always amused when I see that someone stopped at a garage sale in March! No such thing as a March garage sale here in Indiana!!

    Nice find. Love the butterfly fabric.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Wow, here it won't be garage sale season for a few month. And I haven't ever lucked out like you did-guess I will keep looking once the season starts. Congratulations on your great finds.

    Great find...no garage sales here yet and I do have to admit I am in need of a good "Garage Sale fix".
