A SUPER fun SALE!

I was on my way to the grocery story one day and made a quick stop at the thrift store. OHHHH...but I parked at the Quilt Shop! (they are close to each other) There was a SIGN that said, “Quilters Rummage Sale”! OH BOY! There were tables set up and quilters with their ‘destash’ goodies.

I’m too excited to save it!

I got this beautiful, hand quilted lap quilt from the sweetest little lady. She acted like she was apologizing because it was so small and lightweight. But I knew it was PERFECT! (and it was $10)

I scooped up a big bag of thread ($5),

bought some cute fabric to make a doll quilt ($3)

and got this box to put sewing supplies in. ($2.50)

I even bought a ziplock bag with ‘pieces’ for 50 cents!

The small pieces from the ziplock bag are going to give your doll quilts a good start.

That sewing box just made me smile! Now, that handmade quilt for only $10?!? That's daylight robbery! I call that, too, a great shopping day.

You hit the mother lode! I can't believe that lady parted with her beautiful quilt for only $10! Can you say, "SCORE?"

Kim, USA said...

That is a great find! Love it! I love to do quilting but do not have time and nobody is going to teach me so buying is the best thing to do for me hehehehe.

Don't you love when that happens...such a wonderful enexpected feeling! Nice pieces:)

~Tammy~ said...

Beautiful finds there! I think the last photo might be the start of the Double Wedding Ring design, my mother in law introduced me to quilting years ago and she made a beautiful quilt with that design. Quilts take a while to make, but the joy lasts forever!

Also a big Hello to you from a new follower/blogger! I love lavender and purple, so I was drawn in by the name of your blog, and have enjoyed visiting!
Warm hugs to you!
Tammy

You must be born under a lucky star, that $10 you gave for the quilt was a steal, you couldn't even begin to buy the fabric to make it for that price.
