Default Found at a wholesale outlet for used clothing

It's 200 meters (that is over 200 yards) of fabric I can use for backing for charity quilts! (Some of you know that I make lots of these every year and give them out to people here in Poland.) I found this whole roll for about $40, so I figure, if I use 4-5 yards for every quilt (it is 60" wide), I can probably get enough for 50 quilts out of this. I was so happy to find it. It was heavy.

I'm taking off 5 or 6 yards at a time right now and washing it in pieces. But it makes backing quilts very affordable!

That was a super find, $40.00 was a steal. Hope you sew till it's all gone.

That looks sort of like the Gordon plaid and since my Mother was a Gordon, can you send me some!?

Just kidding. You are one lucky individual.
