    There are more then 50 yards here. I did well. Most are Peter Pan and VIP's so not the best quality but good enough for a lot of things.

    I was sooo blown away when I saw it. I will make it big enough for a throw but I am not sure what I will do with it from there. It is soooooo 70's ugly!!!!! When I was a teen I would have killed for that quilt.

    Yes a quilter did die. I felt kinda guilty when the son said $5.00 but then though she would be happy that it went to a quilter and will be used as she intended. I have washed and dried it all. The Linus quilt idea is a good one. I will look into that for the rest of the squares from the 70'rific quilt.

    I am sure that it will all be put to good use, I can see quiet a few great things come out of the fabric. It is great that it went to someone that knows what to do with it.
