    I just got a steal!

    Ok, so there is a weekly flea market right by my house. I went there bright and early this morning and this lady was selling fat quarters and yards of fabric. I just got 150 Fat Quarters and about 15 separate yards of fabric for $30!!!! There is easily over $300 in fabric here Fat quarters at my Joann's are $2 a piece and of course a yard is anywhere from $3 to $10....and her yards are not from Joann's but from a LQS. I'm so excited!!!

    You did take every piece of fabric you could put your hands on, didn't you?

    Love to see some of your haul.

    Oh how nice...wish I could run into a deal like that! My thrift store sells for a $1 a yard but can't often find much there. I love it when I run into a great stash of MODA...keeps me going back for sure!
