    Just wanted to show you what I picked up yesterday at Goodwill --- 15 yards for $7.99! That's about 57 cents a yard!
    What am I doing with it? I am giving it to one of my best friends as a Christmas gift. She loves blue and yellow and has young grandchildren to quilt for. I think she'll be thrilled to get it.

    15 yards!

    That is one of my favorite prints. I used it on several things. I did a yellow and blue quilt with it. What a wonderful deal you got.

    Sure wish we had Goodwill around her that had such "goodies" Most of ours are just old clothes and dingy household items. So glad you hit on such a great deal. Bet your friend will be very happy!

    It's all about being in the right place at the right time.
    I was at our local Goodwill last week and found an entire set of Joanne's Block of the Month - including the setting fabrics - all for $10. Day before yesterday my husband and I were at another Goodwill and I found 3 skillets that looked interesting. I hadn't heard of the brand GreenPan (I don't watch QVC or HSN). I bought the smallest one for $8 and figured I'd try it out and then maybe come back. Well, I hestitated when I shouldn't have because the pan is fabulous. While I was buying that bolt of fabric in one town those other 2 skillets were being purchased by another savvy shopper. I am learning that maybe it's better to take a chance and buy what interests me when I see it than to miss out on a possible really good thing.

    My daughter used that fabric in a quilt she made!
    It's in the blue 9-patches.
