    Finally checked out our new Batik's quilt shop. I bought 4 different fabrics 5 yards of each. Couldn't pass it up they were having 50% off the entire store. I paid $1.50 a yard and it is really nice fabric. I got so excited my hands started shaking.
    I'm going to try and show pic's. I also got some other itemes too.

    What a STEAL! I love the blue fabric it would make my fingers itch to use it too.

    Thanks. I would have went back for more but the sale only lasted for 2 hrs to get the 50% off. I had to get there at 7am cause the 50% off ended at 9am. Then it would be 40% off for 2 hours then 30% then 20%. So the store was packed.

    I really liked the blue myself, wished I had gotten all of it but I didn't want to seem greedy.

    Oh, I know where you went-Hancock's of Paducaha!

    I would have not been able to decide in that amount of time. Would have had to scope it out first the day before. Nice haul.

    Actually the shop is in murray. We have a new lqs called Batik's Quilts on The North side of town on the 641. It is a very small shop. The only reason I knew what to get is because I was in there Fri checking it out. ( i hadn't been in there before) I Spent $35.00 fri before I know about the sale for sat.

    I was in Paducah today tho. Wish I knew where hancock's was at. Don't know much about paducah other than K-mart and the kentucky oaks Mall.

    Hancocks-Paducah is off exit 4 on I24. If you are coming from the east, you turn right onto Hinkleville Road and it's up a little ways on the left. It sets back off the road just a bit and has a large parkin lot in front. If you were coming from toward Illinois, you would turn right onto Hinkleville Road. It's easy to find.

    You did good at the Batik's Quilts shop, though!

    Not sure what I'm gonna make but I can't wait to use the fabrics.
    I have a quilt in progress right now but can't find the time to finish it. My 3 yr. old Elijah won't let me do hardly anything thses days. It's a battle just to look at the quilting board and read. His Daddy just came in so Eli is bugging him now.

    Thank You for the info. We always turn left off exit 4. Now I have a new place to go next time I am in Paducah.

    What a great buy! I'd have a hard time choosing which of the pieces to work with first!

    I can't wait to use that ruler. I have lots of pieces cut into strips so I can give it a try.

    Yeah me too June.

    You did an excellent job with what you picked out. I love E-Z International and June Tailor rules and you got a great size cut-n-press board and some really nice fabrics!

    I can't remember all the prices so I will get the price as close as I can remember. The red one I think I paid 6.00, the angled 1 was 14.00, the smallest 1 was 4.00 no disount cause I bought it the day before, the big ruler was 9.00 got that 1 at WM cause it was twice the price at the lqs even with the discount. I can't remember the price of the others. I threw the price tags and my receipt away shortly after taking the pics. I do things like that and regret it later.
