    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.

    Great finds! I love buying fabrics at garage sales, etc; The deals are unbelievable!

    isn't she a cutie! What a sweetie pie.
    bought some more fabric today at a rummage, great prices, but nothing super crazy spectacular. I really need to get me some more neutral/simple fabrics. I tend to buy bold prints and seriously only have maybe 3 yards of solid. I really need to fix that.
