    For anyone who saw my post about the disco-tastic double knit polyester spiderweb, this is the rest of what was in the boxes. All but a few are at least 2 yards. In some case, even more!! Mostly cotton, some knit, some nice suitings and denim.

    All of this given to me by my kids babysitter. Her DGM passed away and she didn't know what to do with her stash. It has found a happy home with me!

    108 backing. Yards of it!

    Had to use the yard because there's no place in the house big enough to show it all!

    Wow! You cannot give excuses for not finishing a quilt as you scored super wide backing fabrics.

    Congratulations. I just keep hoping my granddaughter will want to learn to sew. DH says I could start my own LQS. He's at least 75% right.
