See what I mean? I need accountability... I was done in by a big blanket size bag of fabric at Goodwill. I re-donated about a third of it. But, what was left was mostly Christmas - old Christmas, but fabric, nonetheless. Luckily, for my statistics, this kind of treasure doesn't come along very often.
This piece was 6 yards but there were other pieces for a total of 12 1/4 yards, great for backs.
This was the biggest piece with 8 3/4 yards, another great back
The best part of goodwill treasures is the original purchase tags. What was an Alco discount store, and when, and 2 yards of fabric for 1.50. Nice
I fold my fabric around this ruler after meeting fold and selvage. It is a size that works great on my shelves.
I kept the odd panels, although very dated and umm... ugly, because I can use the instructions as printed words which I think is great.
Total cost was 6.99 for 48 official yards and some scraps or 14 cents a yard. whoop whoop. that is if I live long enough to use it.

Just share your wealth one day. Old Christmas fabric makes for great backing of new Christmas fabric.ReplyDelete
I agree - thanksDelete
It's hard to pass up those kind of bargains and those are great fabrics to use for backings. Good luck getting a handle on your stash.ReplyDelete
I'd never pass up a great deal like that!ReplyDelete
What a great deal! Lucky you to find it! ~MelanieReplyDelete
Welcome to stash reporting! I've found that, just like when you record what you eat, recording what you buy helps make you buy less! Good luck :)ReplyDelete
Oh, I hope so. thanksDelete
What a terrific deal, certainly too good to pass up. Good luck with yur stash tracking.ReplyDelete
You really did find a treasure. Our goodwill store has never had good fabric, that I've seen. I would have found it hard to pass up that bargain many years go, but now it would have been easier. Can't wait to see your quilts with those new backings.ReplyDelete
I check most wednesdays on senior discount day. Some days, their fabric is more expensive than a quilt store. I try to tell them, that won't work.Delete
What a deal! I live between South Bend and Elkhart and our Goodwill Stores must have a new person determining prices because you seriously could go to Walmart and pay less for most of what they sell. We seldom find even med end labels on their racks anymore. I love it that you saved the words. I'll have to remember that as I work through my stash.ReplyDelete
I mostly find their fabric priced too high,as well. I think the trick here was it looked so out of date to whomever was bundling it.Delete
