    A really FABULOUS find!! Luck was on my side!

    We went into town today to exchange a motorcycle lift. After we did that we stopped off at the Goodwill. And I found the all this Batik fabric. It totaled out to 16 yds. @ $3.00 a yd. I paid $48.00 for all of it. And the best thing is ..the really light fabric on the bottom of the pile is 4 yds. x 110" across large enough to be the backing on a quilt.

    The fabric ranges in yardage of 2 to 4 yards apiece. I was stunned because another lady had just rummaged through the fabrics that were hanging up on the same rack.
    The black and pink piece is actually red and black.
