    It's one yard cuts of 65 different fabrics. I didn't get ALL of the Bali Prints they have. I'm a little burned out on browns right now, just finishing up a quilt all in beige and brown batiks, so didn't get any of those. I added a yard of every single one I liked and then culled out less favorite ones in my cart.

    I shop at www.thousandsofbolts.com quite a lot. They have a very large selection and pretty good prices.

    LOL, I have been known to shop TOB like that. Gets me in trouble. I was on a big time batik splurge in January. Got a bunch from Thousands of Bolts and a bunch from Fabric Depot as they were having a batik blowout sale. Mostly one and two yard cuts. It was so much fun when those packages arrived. Still have a few left to prewash.

    I got a Queen Quilter though now I wish I had just spent more and got a better one with a metal frame. I may just put this bonus away and start saving for something like an APQS Millenium.

    I got some of the Fabric Depot sale batiks but just enough for a specific quilt.

    Now you all have me wondering how many yards I actually bought on my big spree the other day. I have to check.
    LOL ... we are bad to the bolt!

    I was at 58. Whew... just in under you girl. I cannot believe it was that much. Wow.. I hate knowing that.

    St Patty's Day has gone but today I definitely am green with envy!
    I must admit I've never bought that much at one time...

    I've been with my company for 17 years and they just started doing bonuses fairly recently, and then didn't for two years because of the economy.

    I'm grateful to have a job let alone a bonus!

    I love getting a bonus. Last year I asked them to purchase a gift certificate to my quilt shop and went shopping every other month. It was so much fun.!
