Every other month, the stash takes a hit.
I had guild yesterday, which includes a trip to our favorite thrift shop. I did good at the meeting because I worked the admissions table. No time to browse the vendor booth or the charity fabric table. That’s one way to stay out of trouble.
At the thrift I picked up two yard cuts of Benartex, a large piece for a back for the tumblers, and a scrap bag of oriental prints. I don’t usually buy oriental prints, but these spoke to me. They are all from the same fabric line in two color ways in cuts just shy of a fat quarter. My friend thought they were salesman samples.
I would have liked to bring home more, but talked my friend into taking some things instead. That’s what quilty friends are for.
I also picked up a hank of bamboo yarn. To me it’s more of a floss used for embroidery than a true yarn, but the tag says yarn so I will count it. It’s so soft with subtle pink variations. No idea where I’ll use it.
The most I paid for anything was $1.20/yards, the least $0.50. At those prices I will never leave good quality quilting fabric that appeals to me on the shelf, no matter how much fabric I have. I can always donate it to the guild for charity quilts.
I did use fabric for the slice quilt and pulled a couple random pieces of non-quilting fabric from the scrap bag to donate for a whopping half yard out.
