    Ladies -- I made out GOOD today!!! Went to a quilt store close-out...just happened to see it in the paper. Friends were visiting here from out of town and they love to quilt. I bought:

    16.5 yrds of fabric at $2.00 a YARD!
    15 fat quarters at $.50 a qtr!
    2 kits at $10.00 each...each kit has 4 yards of fabric. - both are identical....oh wow - a quilt waiting to happen!
    notions -- about $12.00 worth for 70% off
    2 books -- 70% off

    Total -- around $73.00!!! I'm sorry she's closing the shop BUT I'm SOOO happy!!! It's like Christmas all over again!

    Forgive me!!! I was so exhausted from a day of siteseeing and shopping AND cooking TWO meals (!!!!) that I was too tired to even take pics!!! (too bad we can't edit after 20 minutes!) Here's my prizes!!! Oh, since I usually make totes and wall hangings, the yardage amounts are perfect for me.

    These are the 2 kits of oriental fabrics -- I haven't figured out what I'll make yet, but I'm sure there's enough to make a quilt top.

    These are the Fat Quarters
    [IMG]http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n...CRAFTS/004.jpg[/IMG]

    These are 2 yrds apiece (actually bought them for a friend who just lost her DH and is wanting to learn to quilt - these are HER colors)

    What a deal! The oriental fabric would make a beautiful Japenese Lattern quilt(www.quilterscache.com) It's the next one on my list.

    terrific buy but too bad about the quilt store that is why we need to do your shopping at the independant quilt stores so they don't close

    I was thinking this one, too! Do you think a mix and match of fabrics for the lantern would be okay?

    Congratulations! You really made out!

    One of our LQSs has an inventory sale twice a year - everything is 50% off at the time, one day only. So we get together, car pool 40 miles and shop for the day, have lunch and spend $. What great fun, I know you had to have had a lot of fun at your store. Too bad they are going out of business tho.
