This was a kit - 2 1/2 yards of fabric, plus 12 fat quarters, plus the pattern - all for $25. I haven't bought 1930 - 40 style fabric before, but I couldn't pass this up.
The ladies were very generous with their measuring. This piece was marked as 1/2 metre. It had been cut into, but the uncut part was 3/4 of a metre, and the part that was cut into left at least a fat quarter.
This piece was marked as 3.5 metres. It was actually 5. I have a Christmas quilt in the planning stage that can use this as a backing.
And then there were scraps of various sizes that were bundled together in coordinating packages. Each package totalled about a metre, and was $3. I got 4.
And finally, a "grab bag" for a dollar. These fabrics were mostly non-cotton, although there were a couple muslin pieces in there. These will be good for practising free motion quilting.
I'm on the Grandmas mailing list, and received an e mail from them today, saying they made $28,500 from the sale yesterday. I'm impressed!
I'm linking up with Sew Sunday, even though I haven't done any actual sewing yet today. I have done a lot of preparing, and thinking about sewing and I've decided that counts.
