    St Joseph's Thrift Store Find

    Our class goes into the community each day and we frequent the closest thrift store. I have found a few great items but this is another great find. A poly quilt batting and 6 quilting books all for $ 6.00. I will use the poly batting in a child's quilt as I prefer 80/20 batting.

    Wow! What a find. If you ever want to weed out a few unwanted books, I'd be happy to take any of those off your hands! (Hee, Hee)

    Your basic Guide to Rotary Cutting...Fon's & Porter book is the one I used to figure out how to cut straight. look at their pictures on getting the fold straight..it changed my life. =)

    There's going to be plenty of projects in those books to keep you busy for awhile. We never have such great finds like that in our charity shops.
