Default rummage sale fabric finds!

just had to share a few recent rummage sale finds!
rummaging with 3 kids 4 and under is...shall we say...exciting? exhausting? expensive? eh, we'll go with interesting. but, when I find an ad with fabrics, I've got to check it out. Most of the time, it's a dud, but on occasion, I find some great fabrics.
here are the most recent finds...

the telephones in the middle is about 5 yards long and maybe 36 wide selvage to selvage. not sure if that means old or from another country, but I LOVE it. not sure when I'll ever use 5 yards of it, but it was too great to pass up.
the purple was at goodwill. LOVE the arabian feel.
thanks for looking and sharing my excitement!

oh yeah, and a queen quilt top for $4!!!

and for fun, my almost 1 year old "sorting" herself into the fabrics.

Very pretty colors. I too like the telephones, I would make big blocks so it was showcased more than with small blocks. Just my opinion.

We had 4 girls in 8 years, so I totally sympathize with you. Looks like you and your little towheads had a great time! Neat quilt top, and fun fabrics.

Those are such interesting fabrics. I've never seen them before. Nice haul! And your kids are adorable! Love that blond hair.
