    OMGosh!!! You did strike gold, and the mine! So happy for you, love the fabrics. I never find anything but junk at the local Goodwill shop. Guess the secret is to keep going until you hit the mine!

    That is a lot of fabric! Our Goodwill sells fabric bundles for .69 each. I got 12.5 yards quilting quality last week for $2.07 (3) bundles. Yay!

    I need to come your way and go shopping at your goodwill. Ours doesn't have anything here.

    What area do you usually find the fabric in? I went to 3 Goodwills and 2 Salvation Army yesterday and didn't see any fabric at all.
