    I went to several Goodwills today and for $15.00 Look what I got. The blue fabric is 3 yards, chicken one is 6 yards, valentine one is 6 yards and all the rest is 1 yard.

    Dang you did good. Our goodwill is expensive they want a 1.50 for a piece of fabric no matter how small it is. I think they cut the larger pieces up to make more money. I stopped going there. But hey you did good, enjoy. I think I have some of that blue fabric in my stash.

    Usually what I find is not as good as what is in my garage to be taken in...or thrown away.

    I love the chicken then the blue and the Valentines... do not know I have ever seen that one...
    Did you do the funky chicken exchange, there is your backing...
    MY 88 year young aunt would love the chickens. She has chickens every where,

    Congratulations on your Goodwill find. I live in a small town and there are no fabric stores around here, have to go to another town to buy or buy online. The middle of this month a Goodwill store is going to open here and I am excited..will be there the first day they are open. Its going to be a big one as its taking the old Pennys store site.

    You can find new or almost new men's shirts at GoodWill or thrift stores to use in quilts also especially the plaids and flannels. There's a lot of fabric in the realllly large sizes for a small price.

    My DD and I love going to Goodwill and thrift stores. I just wish I could find some fabric like everyone else. But I can't complain because we find namebrand, new clothes for just a couple dollars a piece.

    You scored! Such cute chicken and Valentine prints! My Goodwill hardly ever has fabric. Or maybe someone beats me to it! I wonder if you need to lurk every day? The men's cotton shirts are a good deal. Especially on half-price day!

    You did fine. more than fine it was a great find. I'm haping my Easter seal store, sorry I couldn't remember the name. Some times my mind just goes blank. But fabric always makes me feel better. Theresse
