Look what I got for $6 a bag!!
Last week I saw a post at Inspired by Antique Quilts about scrap bags. I had to check it out. I couldn’t get to the site fast enough! The last thing I need is more fabric, right? Don’t judge me…you know you do the same thing! But I’m a sucker for scrap bags. I love the mystery. Crazy, huh? I feel like a kid when I open them up…Whadyaget? Whadyaget? These are particularly wonderful because I could choose repro fabrics as opposed to an eclectic mix that I probably wouldn’t use. Opening the bag and seeing all the little snippets of textile joy brought a smile to my face. Big pieces, little pieces, strips and squares all waiting for a spot in some wonderful quilt! (Of course, knowing me, they have a little bit of a wait. Maybe they have brought their knitting!) I take them all out and fold and refold them and envision them in projects. (I’ve already designated a few for my MarioFan’s quilt.) And what trip to a quilt shop (online or brick and mortar) would be complete without a trip to the clearance area. Many a backing is found here! And I didn’t disappoint. Found a few things I liked there also! If you love scrap bags as much as I do, click over to Homestead Hearth and have a look.
Oh yeah! And look what I found on my porch Friday!
