    My Iowa Haul

    This is my 1st time posting pictures, hope it works. This is my haul from Harrishs, in Iowa. I have gone through 5 boxes so far and 500+ yards so far. I am having a great time going through it.

    Think I had to take a double take.. That is unbelievable.. You are going to have fun.. I would probably be intimidated by it..
    If you find any scraps you want to get rid of, I'd be happy to share.. I'm making a postage stamp quilt, and didn't realize how much it takes, and how many different fabrics there are..
    Enjoy.
