Default Goodwill find

Just stopped in to look around. I came home with 92 yards of Quilt Shop Quality material. The cost was $1.58 per yard. Happy Dance for me. There are 12 different cuts and they will all make great quilt backings. I have gotten small amounts before but this was the Mother lode.

I never seem to luck out at the goodwill or salvation army in my area. I have to go out of state to find things.

Ditto here too. The only piece of fabric that I have found at Goodwill in the last year was one piece which I did not buy. They never seem to have fabric. Happy for you though.
