    I went to a yard sale advertising quilting stuff. Went kinda late on the 2nd day of sale. I got 40 magazines (20-Fons&Porter) & (20 other kinds...Big Block Quilts, Quilters Newsletter, American Patchwork) & 40 Quilting books..Applique Quilting, Quilt in a Day, Classic Quilt Blocks,Stack-n-Whack, plus many more for $10.00!!Then I saw some quilt templates for a double wedding ring, some JoAnn's block a month kits (some block already made), a press mit all for another $10.00. With an average of about $15 each, the books are worth over $600 and the mags @ about $5 each, that's about $200. YEAH ...I'll post some pics when I get my son to show me how
