    Fabric Haul

    Found someone on Facebook wanting to get rid of fabric; I paid $50. After sorting through it I ended up with about 29 yards of fabric in various sizes from .25 yard to 5.5 yards in size. Not included in the 29 yards is lots of scraps. Since I'm a pretty new quilter I need to build my stash... I'm so excited!
