I Hit The Jackpot!


My guild held a "Needlework, Quilt, Craft and Stuff Sale" this past weekend, at which guild members sold their unwanted quilting/sewing/crafting supplies as well as some finished fabric items.

I wasn't a seller (only a volunteer helper), but came home with all of what you see in the photo for a grand total of $20!

Here's a detailed list --

-- June Tailor Scallop/Wavy Edge ruler ($24 on Amazon)
-- Creative Grids 60-degree Triangle ruler ($25.95 on Amazon)
-- Clover needle threader ($11.86 on Amazon)
-- Quilts of a Different Color book by Irene Bluhm ($19.74 on Amazon)
-- 3 yards of tone-on-tone white fabric
-- 2 yards of solar system fabric
-- almost 2 yards of construction equipment fabric
-- a Diane Phalen fabric panel ($9.50/yard on her website)
-- a Jelly Roll (albeit of W-----t fabric, but it will work for a charity quilt)
-- 21 birdhouse blocks that someone had won at a quilting retreat
-- 7 batik nine-patch blocks, also won by someone at a retreat
-- several recent issues of Sew News and Threads magazines

Oh, yes....and four brownies and a small bag of caramel corn from the bake sale table..but those didn't last long enough for the photo!

Not bad for a morning's work.


P.S. A big thank you to the sellers who had great bargains, and especially to Sylvia for her "everything's free on my table" announcement right before closing!
