    Finally I scored!

    There was only one yard sale yesterday and it mentioned "fabric" in the newspaper ad. We went and I was able to pick up 144 fat quarters, all quilting quality material, for $30. I came home and it was like Christmas and the lovely quilter who held the sale had them all packed according to colors that coordinate with each other.

    Stupedous deal! if you need a book on fat quarter quilting there are lots of them available. Not quite as many as for other precuts (jelly rolls, charm patches,etc.) but still enoughto have choices. Have fun.
