    I check Craigslist on a regular basis - never know what I'll find - so yesterday afternoon I hit it big!!! "Quilt fabric for sale - 10-15 tubs all in order according to color and folded perfectly - $200" - so I called, set up the appt. to look and talked DH into going over there. Here's what I got --- I'm totally overwhelmed. It is ALL awsome fabric, some flannel, but all totally useable. Lots and lots of yardage in coordinating fabrics, and many, many fat quarters. There is a slight smoke odor, but I ran some through my dryer this morning with 2 dryer sheets and it now smells very fresh. My daughter is coming down to help me sort through it tomorrow. I doubt we'll get through it all in one weekend. There may be some up for sale in the coming weeks.

    Wow! I'm so impressed at how organized, most of the time when we see a post for such a great find the person who is selling it appeared to not know what they had and it's all in bags and disorganized. This is an awesome find. Have fun sorting thru.
