    I went to our local surplus store. They have terrific sales on name brand materials. Today was an extra special day for me. They had fat quarters for 75 cents each. I picked out about 16 of them, many batiks. The lady at the store said they were Wal-Mart fat quarters so I'm going to be sure and wash them to make sure they hold up before I begin sewing.

    If any of you have stores like that near you keep an eye open because evidently stores are buying up Wal-Mart fabrics from stores that are doing away with the fabric department. I never shop for fabric at Wal-Mart but heck, they can be made into table runners or something.

    You can't go wrong with FQ's for 75 cents each, no matter where they're from! There's always some project that you'd rather use a lesser quality fabric on. Good find!

    FYI Some JoAnne Fabric stores are also redoing their fat quarter sections and are getting rid of old stock for 50 cents a piece while quantities last.

    Wash the batiks with vinegar. Nice score ;-)

    I was in one of the walmarts close to me and their fabric will be gone soon. They had it marked 1/2 off including the jelly rolls that normally sell for $20. Good luck. :D
