    When hubby got home today from work, I grabbed him and dragged him to Goodwill to look for some fabrics..This is what I found..hmmm (we found) :-D

    the one with little rosebuds is about 2 yards and the the apple one is about 3 yards..The other 3 are very nice sheets that I am going to use..The white sheet is like very nice muslin type of fabric..Which would be great to use I think as a batting type for a lighter weight quilt?

    I so glad that you were able to find a good deal on the fabrics. My goodwill never has fabric when I go there. I'm one of the unlucky ones. :(

    Nice find! The muslin would make a great backing.
    Have a great weekend.

    I'm jealous , my Goodwill never has fabric. Not sure why , maybe they donate it to other causes before it ever hits the retail.

    I had mine, hold the ones I found while I searched for others :D

    At my goodwill they put the fabric in with all the sheets, curtains and such..Hanging on a hanger in one of the aisles..They have a lot of sheets and some are just beautiful..

    -----------------------
    I was raised to think of sheets as good backing for a quilt. Not until I got on this forum do I remember seeing a backing that was colored or patterned. Now I just bought a couple of yards of wild splashes of colors for backing on another ice cream lap quilt, to match the bright colors of the ice creams. It's already washed and ironed, all cotton and no color bleeding, ready for sandwiching and tying.
