We are on vacation and I found the nicest little quilt shop in Jackson Hole called Stitch'n'Time. I found one area of fat 1/8ths for $.50, fat 1/4's for $1, 1/2 yds for $2.50 & so on. It was called "timeless treasures". The owner explained to me that she buys back leftover fabrics from her customers for $5 per pound. It is all prewashed and she cuts it up in various sizes and resells it. I was able to get enough for a nice size "couch size" quilt top for @$12. I just thought it was a really nice idea- a way she could support "going green" and I could support my habit on the cheap. ;-)
When I get back home I'm going to tell my LQS and see if it's something they might start.
