I knew it was coming because yesterday was my guild’s fabric sale. This is the third one they’ve had since I joined and by far the largest. A former member passed away and her family donated her entire stash of 50 boxes of fabric.
The total damage was 30 yards in. I got a little surprise with a bag of what I thought was cat fabric scraps. They were so cute I had to grab them. It was actually the first thing I picked up.
I didn’t open the bag until I got home and I was surprised to find it was a quilt all kitted up with completed blocks and the pattern picture.
After the massive fabric infusion I had no business looking at fabric at the thrift shop. I picked up a pack of embroidery patterns, a bit of yarn for art quilts and the exact floss I needed for my bear blocks. Good to know that I can find the older floss at the thrift.
The pattern pack was all taped up, but I took a chance anyway. There were three sets of block patterns for different embroidered quilts and several quilt patterns. The embroidery patterns are different from everything else I have and I’m so glad I bought them. They make a nice addition to my pattern stash.
