    I just love a good sale and didn't want to miss out on this... Hate to take it all if someone else needs it too.

    assuming you mean...$7.96 & $3.98 a yard and not the hundreds you quoted...it is a good deal but how much you should buy depends on how much you use that dark of fabrics? if you tend to use alot of black in your quilts then buy it all if you can afford it. if you don't use black often than just pick up a yard to have handy. if it is $398.00 a yard i would not even be thinking about it, it would have to be gold plated

    Nope - it's listed as the $100's I quoted. The site may have it wrong, but if you put it in your cart that's what you're going to be charged. So I'm still holding back out of the goodness of my heart in case some of you want to get your yardage first. :-D

    As much as I like quilting,,,,,, not at those prices. I think my husband would finally reach his breaking point.

    Do you have a link? I'd like to prove to Hubby that my fabric purchases aren't as extravagant as he says they are! ;)
