I like scrappy quilts so the small amount I felt in it was fine for $2. When I got home I found that inside 4 folded 1/2 yd pieces was all the cut out squares for the quilt on the page and enough for the queen size top! I definitely patted myself on the back for that one!
    Great finds like that are why i am a thrift store shopper and always broke..lol Congrats on the wonderful bargain.
