    okay so you can't see me do my happy dance. but take my word for it. when i opened this box i did my happy dance.
    i love when an ebay seller gives you way more than you expected.
    30's repro fabrics are my absolute favorites. when this lot came on ebay i knew it was mine. (hope i wasn't bidding against any of you, there were several of us bidding on this auction.)
    the seller said 14 yards plus, and it is more like 18 counting all the scraps, most pretty big.
    now i can't wait to start a quilt from the era. egg money, anyone??

    Egg money city! You lucky girl! I have that book too. The samplers are gorgeous. I've made quite a few of the blocks and they are very fun! Wouldn't a sampler be so pretty with your new fabrics?
