    Went to the local thrift store and got some fabric (ok, LOTS of fabric)! All of this for less than $25! There was so much, I was unable to show it all :) About 80% is cotton for quilting, the other 20% is some fabric for making clothing. Of the 80% cotton fabric about half of it is from mfg like Moda, Robert Kaufman, Debbie Mumm, Bena...rtex. The rest is no labeling on salvages or "made exclusively for JoAnn's".

    I am one happy girl!

    Now just need to find a place to put it all....that could be a problem!

    I had just as much fun sorting it all out to see what I had!

    Funny though, all I had was $2 in my pocket. So I had to call hubby :) No qualms from him though (I find that amazing!).

    Considering fabric is so expensive, I guess he knew not to argue :lol: :lol: :lol:
