    Struck Gold at an Estate Sale!

    I went to a quilter's estate sale this past Friday about 30 minute away..........and was so glad I did!!

    I've been wanting some black & white prints so I was very happy to find these fabrics. There are some HST blocks & assorted size pieces.....some 1/4 yard and more.

    And of course, while I was there I had to pick up these other pretty fabrics.........you know.......to help out the estate sale......and I "needed" them!

    Can't wait to start on a black & white quilt!

    WHERE ARE YOU FINDING THESE WONDERFUL ESTATE SALES????? They have plenty of them around here, but I usually only find rusty farm equipment and thousands of mismatched dishes!!!!

      You are so lucky to have found that sale. We don't seem to have any sales with quilters materials in them around here. Happy quilting.

          Same here Judy....except for the one sale where I bought my sewing studio last year. No good sewing bargains found since then.

                Did you ever SCORE! Your fabrics are so nice...they look like very good quality. I love the little cowboy print...darling! The blacks/whites are gorgeous!

                  Very nice. I'm with the others, there aren't estate sales, garage sales or auctions around that have fabric. I'm looking forward to seeing the black and white quilt when you get it done.

                  I have a friend who is dealing with an aunt who is a hoarder including fabric. The problem is she just threw the bags of fabric into the house or shed so we're not sure how much of the fabric will even be useable. She has been sorting for several weeks.

                        Nice black and white prints, but I love the needle and thread print! Too cute!

                          Wow! Those are great finds. I think I also need to try harder to find some estate sales around - even if I have to drive.
