Well, this morning before I started my errands I spotted a garage sale ad the started "ATTENTION QUILTERS!"....well, they were selling fabric for $2/yd, so I just had to go clear across town to see/buy.

Well, I bought 10 pieces of material for $75, one was a panel ($2), two were over 5 yds ($10 each), and the rest were 2-4 yard pieces. When I got home and measured the pieces (prior to washing) I discovered that she (the garage sale owner) overcharged me by at least $15. So....

I packed up the material and went all the way (11 miles!) across town again. She could not have been more cordial or gracious. She was shocked but offer me $15.00 or 10 pieces of material, since I had tocome all the way back. Well, guess what I did! Surprise! I took the fabric!!! hehehe!

Anyway, I have the washing machine running full blast and here is what I got. A total of 68 yds of fabric for $75...$1.10 a yard! Can't beat that for Friday the 13th!!

Ears of Corn 3 yds, Orange Yellow floral 3 yds

Nice haul! I'm glad she was good enough to admit the mistake. Not many garage sale ppl Ive met would do that, but quilters are special people. Have fun with all your new goodies!
