    You do better than I do, I feel lucky if I get one piece for $5.00.

    I must not be shopping in the right thrift shop.

    I got a 30s top in a box of fabric scraps at an auction lasts year.....sure no one knew it was there, as the finished quilts brought big bucks....

The really amazing part was that they are all hand sewn! Holy scrap. I'm blown away and sort of saddened that someone didn't get to see their project(s) completed. The stacks in the photos are the orphans. Everything else in the pics is what was in the rest of the bags.
    Wowwwwwwwwwwie! that is a great score!

    I think it is wonderful that someone who can do something with another quilters UFO's got this stash. I have more things started than I can finish in a lifetime. Plus I have scraps and UFO's from my X's mother and grandmother, and my mother. I sure hope a quilter gets my UFO's and stash. I enjoy the process of piecing and designing as much as the finished product.
