    All of these beautiful, wonderful fabrics!!!!! Went to a warehouse sale on fabrics and walked out with 4 bags and 4 sample books. Fill as much as you can in one of those super large clear plastic bags and boy did I stuff them. I just finished unloading the bags and took pics. Next step is to sort them all out. This time around I was being good and smart, I looked for 100% cotton samples. Haven't counted them yet, but I'm guessing close to 1000 pieces... LOL My boyfriend asked why I got so much and I happily replied, "um because it was $24". hehehehe :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Sure ask me but don't know if I'll have the answer you want LOL, JK I'm sure I'll need to off load these some day.

    No, I didn't carry them all. The car was parked out front so my daughter found a cart and got 2 bags in there and one of the saleperson helped with the other 2. My daughter was really sneaky, she managed to sneak in a few pieces for herself and she's 10. She may turn out to be a fabricholic....

    Have you ever seen the ad for Ikea where the woman comes running crazily out of the store yelling "start the car! start the car!"? You picked up that kind of haul.

    How nice the salesperson was. Did she think you were nuts? I can just imagine lugging that.............no, I actually can't.

    That's funny.... I think they are use to large hauls. They have the carts ready and waiting. They are all really great people.

    They look like furnishing fabrics - You know for curtains etc.

    The quilt I made - "Hearts for my Mother", used similar looking fabrics. Hope you have as much fun as I did playing with all that fabric.
