    I went back to Walmart this morning and loaded up. There were several people that worked there that said they have been talking about getting rid of the fabric section. Well, I spent approximately $100 there this morning on fabric and notions. I took several pics, please be patient while I load them. They were really too cute. Some I got the last of the bolt, most I just got 1 yard. I just L*O*V*E the tractor boy fabric. I may have to go get more of it. I surely can see several lil boys quilts out of that. :)

    P.S. Sorry I had a smudge on my camera lens, but finally realized it and cleaned it up.

    The tractor boy is adorable. do you need any red bandanna print to go with it? Wait a minute, I'm not sure I can find it. Time to clean the sewing room(s).

    What a wonderful way to build your stash, I can see lots of kids quilts from those. Just love the little farmer one.

    I love them and cannot wait to get started on them. The farm boy fabric had another one with it, mostly tractors on it. May have to get some of it. But I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some red bandana fabric too. I think it would be good with the blue bandana and red and do fussy cuts on the farm boy with the pattern d9p. They weren't having a sale, just stocking up in case they aren't there in a week or two.

    I know that a lot of people won't use WalMart fabric but I've got to say there is fabric I've bought from them that I haven't seen anywhere else....you know the trademarked children's fabrics. I buy what I like for my quilts and you have hit the jackpot. Congrats

    I made my grandson a CARS quilt. He uses it EVERY night on his bed. I watched him about a month ago so his mom could go out of state. I went in to check on him before I went to bed and he was under his quilt. He's 8 years old and really knows how to get under Grandma's heart strings. I bought fabric to do him a Monopoly quilt. He got on Pogo under my name and plays it all the time because I forgot to sign out. I just have to figure out a way to finish it before Christmas.
