    I am just jumping out of my skin. I can't wait to get a pic of them for you guys to see. But I just got back from a "garage sale". it was a lady who was selling fabric that she got from a quilt shop that was closing down. I only spent $34. shhhhhhhh hubby will only think 24.
    I got two rulers one 12 1/2 sq. and one 24 x 6 1/2. and then i got 5 different fabrics about 2 yards each give or take a 1/2 in. isn't that great??? two of them are batiks and two are religious and the last is a religious patriotic fabric. oh I am just so excited. getting camera to take a pic right now. be back with the pics shortly. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :XD:

    I really really really want to go back with more money, but that was all I figured I could get away with getting. hubby doesn't really think spending the money on fabric and quilting stuff is very important or even worth while.

    Great find. I know for a fact that the cream colored fabric with crosses is $9.00 a yard. I bought some for the backing of scriptured wall hangings.

    My hubby said the same thing. then he saw how happy it makes me to quilt for someone. He told me yesterday 'I'm so happy you're happy sweetheart, I love you and Matthew so much.' Made me cry. He even gets involved if I have trouble with color scheme! But he swears he will never sew a quilt lol ONE DAY!!! just like ONE DAY I will get him at least to the door of a church!

    Your hubby will come around... P.S. have you made him a snuggly warm quilt all his own yet? He might come around faster... ;)

    I have not made him a quilt yet. waiting to find just the right pattern and looking for nice oakland raiders fabric. He is a raider fan. I don't really care or follow football, but try to watch for him. I actually don't know what kind of fabric to pair with the raiders fabric for it.
