    My husband stopped at the Army Navy Store so I went next door to a Thrift Store and found some fabric and spent a whole $7.50 for 2 panels and 7 yards of fabric. Most will be used in chairty quilts.

    good finds!

    I have that bear panel waiting to be quilted but haven't come up with anything yet since I'm a beginner at FM - need something simplistic. It will go off to charity when done. What are your ideas?

    I almost bought some of those very same panels at our last guild meeting, but they wanted more than you paid. I really like them, too!

    I decided to stick it out with the fabric diet for a little longer. I'm doing so well. Now if I could do so well with the food diet......

    Those are adorable. Every time (I'll keep on looking) I go to a thrift store in search of fabric, I can't find any. Great find!!
