    Since I'm pretty much stuck home all the time, I don't get out to the garage sales or estate sales, but today a neighbor down the street had one, and I came home with all this. Turned out to be about 75 cents a yd. Think I'll have to start thinking fall, what do you think? Oh then the bright Christmas red and green. I've been so envious of all your garage sale finds, so now I have my own.

    Great find. I love the fall colors. With the fabrics you purchased, you can pick all kinds of colors to go with them.

    Thanks everyone, I forgot to mention the toile (sp?) each little bundle was tied in these 5" strips. They are great for 3D or some applique, I almost threw them away.
