    Estate sale jackpot

    Hi! I went to an estate sale at a consignment shop today. I was hoping to find some 1/4 to 1/2 yard pieces of material along with batting. Well, I found lots more for a total price of $78! Unfortunately, i didnt find any batting but I did get some fleece that will work.

    Now let's see if I can get the pictures posted!

    The yardage was basically from fat quarters to a yard plus. One piece was 9 1/2 yards!

    I also got some sheets, a mattress pad, and a well loved quilt. All will be used in charity quilts.

    My church quilting friends will be so thrilled!

    OMG ! The only thing I bought today was a 10 cent crocheted doily and a coloring book for 25 cents ! I forgot a flimsy black sheer top to be uces for a crazy quilt. That was 50 cents, cheaper than a fat quarter. Oh well some people have all the luck. It just wasn't my day.. Hugs

    I only got a tiny fraction of what was available. The consignment shop people said to come back tomorrow because they will put out more material and more craft supplies. Lots of happy shoppers today!

    Wow - you did make a good purchase - I did get to two second hand shops - purchased two wool skirts - they will be made into American Girl doll clothes. Much cheaper than buying the yardage!
