    I found these great pieces of material and all for $20.00,
    6 yards of Heavy denim, 6 yards of the plaid, 2 yard of the dark and light blue cotton, another 3 yards of denim and 3 yard of an applique fabric. Ladies look for them they are out there for you to find.

    Great find, our thrift stores never have fabric, I keep asking, but they don't get it in, except for small pieces.

    I've been fortunate to find Christmas fabric at the thrift store! Going to make bags out of them and stop using wrapping paper that is not recyclable here. I'll keep looking for other materials too.

    The Senior Centers sometimes have material. The one that I visit has a quilt area and the ladies there sell baggies all ready cut and color coordinated. The prices are sooooo reasonable too and the money goes back to the center.

    I made a basket of matching prints. And appliqued flowers in and some like hanging over the basket. It was really cute. I still have some in my UFO box to finish. I need to dig those out and get them finished. I also did a ribbon out of a solid to match.

    Not really. Just make sure you allow plenty to turn under if that is the way your are going to applique. That's the way I did. It's so fun appliqueing a basket on a block. Or piecing one then appliqueing it on. And then the fun begins. Decorating with the flowers. I'll have to dig one out, finish it and post a pic.

    You can't find any at our Good Will store because I beat you to it. I just got 2 sheets for the backing of two quilts and 3 yards of some fabric. :D

    Great score Doris :thumbup:

    It looks like the Pansy material has directions at the top of the fabric. You could cut the pieces out individually and use them on a border.

    Great find. I guess I don't go to the Goodwill close to my house enough. The few times I've gone I haven't found any fabric.
