    Quickly now sew them all up, for if you don't in ten years you will be wondering what the heck to do with them. I know, I did the same thing and now years later am trying to use the darn things up. I will have to live to a hundred to use them all!

    It's good that one quilter could 'help' another one to acquire more material. Glad you made a great score!

    I suppose this is a good place to get info on my dilemma. About two years ago, I purchased a nice piece of fabric to use in a quilt for my son. Once it was washed, I love the feel of it and the movement of the design. I wished I had purchased more. Well, it went into a second quilt and now I'm using a little of it in a third quilt. There is a little over a yard left AND I WANT MORE! I've looked for it, but have had no luck. It's a Hancock fabric. On the selvege is printed: "Serene Shadows" Hancock Fabrics [registered trade mark] 2007 This fabric is different shades of red with white. Lots of movement. I've tried online and have come up with nothing. Any suggestions?

    BTW, yes, you really did SCORE!

    Lucky You. I love fat quarters. Just going through mine today and thinking about what I am going to make with them. I will be making sample blocks and then they will go into pot holders or place mats. BrendaK
