    I went to a parking lot sale and look at all I bought for $ 24.00 :)

    Unfortunately a guild member passed, but her family had a sale. I was pleased to get all of this for only $ 24.00 there is a lot of flannel on the bolt and it is 72 inches or more wide.

    I am sure the family appreciated other quilters buying her things. I think of my deceased quilting friend every time I use a piece of the fabric I inherited.

    love that flannel! My sympathy to the family that lost a loved one and then having to go through all her things to sell, but I'm sure they'll feel the warmth of other quilters carrying on her love.

    Love that red flannel! Reminds me of some I used, making my 3 daughters nighty gowns when they were little.

    That is exactly what I wish when I pass, for someone to get my stash.

    It is cut in 60 by 60 lengths and I have been using it for backings to Christmas Tree wall hangings right now. I will likely piece it for my charity quilts backing in January
