Some Goodies for My Stash

On Friday while reading a local weekly newspaper I found an ad for a yard sale that had "quilt shop quality fabrics", so on Saturday morning my husband and I headed out to see what we could find.  Here's what I brought home..............
 Inside the boxes...................
Most of the pieces were either yard or 1/2 yard cuts and in some cases there were many pieces from various lines of fabric or they were grouped together with other complementary colors.


 There was even a yard of this "Domestic Diva" fabric, LOL!

Here's what I've been working on, it's called Rustic Bouquet designed by Sarah Maxwell and Delores Smith, I found the pattern in the Jan/Feb 2012 McCall's Quilting.  I just need to finish stitching the wool flowers and leaves and then it will be a completed "flimsy".

Off to get some chores done, hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Wow Denise what a haul. You sure did okay, you will have to tell us what projects you make out of all that fabric
