    I went to visit my newly pregnant niece and she gifted me all this fabric. She found out she is pregnant with twins! I guess I will be making a couple new baby quilts for her. She does not sew and her husband bought a storage locker and this was in it! This is yardage, not scraps, although there are a few quarter yard pieces. He said if he comes across anymore he will call his favorite auntie. He is also on the lookout for machines, especially vintage ones!! HURRAY!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Nice score!! There is a TV show on - forgot the name - but it's about guys who buy storage lockers. they get like 5 minutes to look at the locker from the door, can't go inside. Wonder if your nephew was one of them, it was from CA.

    Now do us all a favor and promise you wont' use any of that skull fabric (I spotted two!) for the twins quilts!!

    Man, what a nice group of fabrics...I saw several that I would love to put in my I Spy quilts if you decide you would like to sell or trade some of it.
