Colorado: Welcome, I see your new to the Board. If anything can get you fired up to quilt it is this board. Are you a long time quilter?
What a nice thing to gift your Doc. Clearly it made his day.
Walmart's fabric used to be a lot more fun to look through. The one closest used to have a manager that would buy flat folds in bunches and mark them $1 or $2 per yard. It was always an adventure to look through the stacks. Now it is the same boring thing all the time. If they had decided to purposely make the fabric department a looser they couldn't do a better job.
