I have used my husbands discarded shirts, my family member's old jeans, thrift store finds, garage and estate sales, Joann's and Hancock coupons. I have traded notions for fabric and traded fabric for notion, have done baby sitting for fabric. I have posted on Freecycle for fabric. I hit the $1.00 per yard fabric at Walmart and hit a goldmine. I tell everyone that I know that I will take any fabric that they don't want. My unemployment has almost run out and I have to really scrounge to get fabric. When you have Quilt Pox you become very creative.
