    Patio Sale Score!

    109 yards of cotton fabric....$20! Plus a pair of Boker shears for $1!

    The lady had an entire shipping container set up as a craft studio. Very organized. Not big into the fabrics...compared to her beading, silk flowers, clothes pin dolls and crocheting.

    I'm positive I can use the gingham on some project!

    Wow and double WOW. That is a spectacular find. You will sew many wonderful quilts with them.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Use the gingham for Chicken Scratch quilt blocks. Someone posted picutres of one on QB and it was very pretty. Congratulations on your score!

    The gingham may be poly cotton, which isn't a problem in my books. I made a baby quilt with tourquoise gingham hand appliquéd hearts on a white background years ago, and I think it was really cute. I saw a neat heart pattern the other day that you might like, I'll see if I can find the link.

    Wow...the Moda quilt is attractive! Chances of me doing that much appliqué are minimal! Great idea though!
