    Terrific score. Everyone benifitied, the sellers got to clear out some stuff and get a little cash for it and you got a big bunch of fabric and thread for just a few dollars. Way to go, May in Jersey

    What a wonderful "find".
    When something like this happens, I think it's even more fun to create a quilt.

    Wow, you did good, I call those major finds, and you found one. Kind of like my baby lock for 400.00, she lady had never used it, she couldn't figure out how to thread it, so she sold me a 1200.00 machine for 400.00. Keep looking those major finds are out there.

There are two 5 yard pieces with the rest ranging from 1 yard to 4 inch blocks. There was one 12 inch pinwheel block. I see several scrappy quilts in my future.

    COOL!!!! You did good. Did they give you the cat as a "THANK YOU" for shopping????? I like your little helper.

    Nice score on the fabric. Beautiful cat - I have 2 quilt inspectors who "help" me quite a bit with my fabric choices.

    Looks like a good deal. I have been cleaning out for my move & the hardest part was getting rid of some of my fabric.But I was good I gave a lot awayto a church group that makes quilts for cancer patients & bags for walkers for peoplein nursing homes.Also gave yarn thatthey use for sick babies. At least it went for a great cause.I still have plenty to sew with. Now that I retired I wont have to go shopping for any.i'll be busy.

    What a great deal! That looks like such a treasure and the fabric inspector is very pretty. He/she looks like the boss too.
