    my local thrift store sells bundles of fabric for a dollar a bag. You never know what you're gonna get. A little of this and a little of that. They're great stash builders. Well today, for some reason, they dropped the price to 50 cents a bag so I loaded up. When I got them home I found what must be 2 or 300 orphan 9 patches. Mostly done with different fabrics. The really amazing part was that they are all hand sewn! Holy scrap. I'm blown away and sort of saddened that someone didn't get to see their project(s) completed. The stacks in the photos are the orphans. Everything else in the pics is what was in the rest of the bags.
