    Wow, you were in the right place at the right time. And I am sure the former owner of the shop would be happy that one of her customers who loved the shop got some of the fabric. BTW, I lost my guest room years ago!! LOL

    Oooooh, what a wonderful (dangerous) estate sale. I would've been sorely tempted to say, "How much would you take for all of it?"

    I'm happy for you and the quilter who passed away. She would want her things to go to someone who would appreciate them like you do. Enjoy and make something beautiful.

    Congratulations on a wonderful purchase! Enjoy it. Sorry to hear of a quilter's passing. But I believe she would be happy knowing other quilters are thrilled to be getting stashs from what she left behind.

    Yea!! Rub it in, rub it in. LOL
    I would wait till Bob is out of the house to do that, he may think you have really gone round the bend if you roll around on all that fabric. But then it could be fun if he joined you.
