    A lovely young woman had an estate sale of her mother's "stash". Here are my purchases. She had bought a lot locally from several LQS's and from Keepsake Quilting.

    The daughter said she had a lot of unfinished projects and I am going to offer to help see what can be done with some of them.

    So nice of you to offer to help finish projects - it will mean alot to her I think. It looks as though you you found a deal.

    I see a few Thimbleberries fabrics in there - I am in need of one particular one and if its in there and you could part with some I need at least 1/4 of a yard (would prefer a half but beggers cant be choosey) I have listed the post where I need this fabric Let me know thanks cheryl :thumbup:

    It's wonderful to get hold of someone's stash and then actually use it. My buddy and I have used lots from the two stashes we aquired and it always makes me happy knowing some quilt angel is smiling.

    Nice. I know the daughter is thankful someone can use them and will finish some of what her Mom started. You are so kind to do that.
