    The mother lode

    Got this at a pre-estate sale. So much material and craft stuff she had to get rid of
    that before she could have an estate sale. I got this all for $16.

    Wow, what a deal. I love getting fabric for a good price. When I go to garage sales, I always look for boxes of fabric. What a bargain.

    Are the quilt tops from the estate sale too? If they are, you are so lucky because they are beautiful. If they are your tops then good work. $16 for all that material is a bargain!
