    We went on vacation this week and since it was raining at times we had some time available to hit some quilt shops. :D And it was fun! At one of the shops we hit, they had a few hundred bolts of Moda fabrics marked down to $5 a yard or 6 yards for $25. Bought a bunch there. :) As you can see, most of the stuff I bought is 1800s/Civil War repros, as well as 1930s repros. The two jelly rolls were marked down to $20 each. Those stacks across the back are 1 yard cuts each, and the larger pieces in front are 4-5 yard pieces because I really liked them. Total = 57 yards. A productive vacation! :thumbup:

    Did you ever make it to the Rainbow's End Quilt Shoppe in Dunedin, FL? It sounds like their sales prices & some look like their fabric.
    You had a GREAT vacation!!!

    Eddie you know how addicted I am to those Moda fabrics so I am very jealous of your fabulous purchases! Hope you had a great vacation with your family and I really appreciated your recommendations on the long arm machines.

    Wondered why you haven't been on the Board in awhile. Those fabrics are fabulous & those prices were all right.

    We went to the beach at Destin, Florida. There were two shops in neighboring Fort Walton that we went to, one was Lynn's Sewing Center and the other was The Sewing Center Around The Block. The later was the one with all of the $5 per yard Moda fabric.

    We also stopped through Stitch-n-Frame in Vicksburg, MS on our way back home. They're the ones that I bought my Gammill longarm through. Wow, what a store they have! 10,000 bolts of fabrics. I was like a kid in a candy store! :D

    Didn't make it there, we were on the tip of the panhandle in Destin.

    Yes, but she hasn't unpacked hers yet. She got probably half as much as me, I'm pretty aggressive with my shopping, LOL! :D

    Wow! Nice fabric. Can't wait to see what you make out of all of it. I love the Civil War fabrics. I just started collecting it. Hope you & your family had a great vacation
