    I want to show someone!
    I received the last of my on-line orders this week--five of them. Then I visited my favorite Mennonite place today and added a few more. All washed and several will be cut into a few strips tomorrow. Rain is forcing me from the barn to the quilting room. :thumbup:

    Every piece has a purpose.

    Anorther horse fabric Ada had on the $3/yard table.

    I made pillowcases from this horse fabric to auction off for a horse rescue place. My friend, who picked them up, thought they were the most beautiful things she'd ever seen. lol So...I ran to buy more--on the renmant table for $3 a yard. Can't beat that.

    All for my florals. I have all but two already...just adding more of my favorites. The bear one is adorable--will be the back of doll quilts.

    And one I've been looking for for months--finally found it. A favorite for the floral log cabin blocks--the light side.

    Close up of the fabrics I picked to made log cabin blocks out of the left overs. I have more from stash to use. The colors match great--but you can't see all the places they match. lol The red barn one I will use for borders on the pillowcases, I think. At least two to see if it looks okay..

    All Modas I love. My d-i-l picked the Back to Nature pattern for a king sized quilt. She loved the fabrics I had picked to make it--which was amazingly wonderful! I was hesitating tomake it because I didn't need another big quilt--now it already has a home! ;-) These are a few to add to the pile. LOVE these.

    Great fabrics!
    I spotted that barn fabric and immediately got jealous!

    I'm sure your pillowcases will be in demand at the auction. Or anything else you make from that fabric.

    I love the bear fabric, so cute! And I really love the horse fabric. It's not animated horses and they're a good size.

    Nice fabrics! :thumbup:

    Those fabrics are perfect. They were waiting there just for you. What a good cause. Your efforts Iím sure are greatly appreciated.

    I took cash instead of the checkbook--so prioritized and put some stuff back on the $3 table. None of those fabrics had a purpose, so it was a good decision.

    All $3 per yard? That's great for recent fabrics, and a good time to built your stash before prices get any higher!
    My shopping bonanza this week was about 30 yards of a couple of older cottons (that will make good quilt backs) for $4 TOTAL at the end of a church rummage sale!

    No..the horse ones only. The rest were $6 and up, but $6.75 was the highest.
