    i stopped at a garage sale today on the spur of the moment. got all this for one dollar. 2 big cheater panels, one pre-quilted baby quilt, several 3 yard pieces and many one and 2 yard pieces. plus a bunch of scraps.
    2 patterns for crib quilts, several packages of bias tape, satin binding, a yard of stiff inner facing, and a big bag of cheesecloth.
    i was pretty happy. the woman's mother in law had passed away and they were selling her stuff.
    i went thru it when i got home and all the fabric went straight into the wash. it was musty smelling. it all came out beautifully.
    today felt a lot like christmas. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    OH My Goodness! The fabric on the bottom left corner--was that the pre-quilted? I have a small blanket made for me as a baby by someone of that fabric. Crazy small world!
