I hit paydirt!

After work today I stopped by a little shop called Craft Bits and Pieces. It takes donations of craft items and fabrics and resells them. The prices are always ridiculously low and the profits go to the senior center in town. I have been on a buying moratorium, so have avoided the shop. Today, on a whim, I stopped in and look what I got:



Here is a breakdown:




Hmm..not sure why that came out sideways. Anywho..these kits are 5 inch squares..they say enough to make a full size quilt. I opened up one and counted 1 corner of them....60 pieces..and there are 4 sets on top and 4 on bottom...so 480 5 inch squares in each pack. Heaven for a scrap quilter like me! These were each $5.95.




Two dresden fan kits. The one is all the same green fabrics and cost $4.95 and the other is scrappy earth colors and cost $3.95. Both make either twin or full size quilts.



All the pieces for these stars are the same black and white. Not sure how many are in there, but I am assuming since it is he same type kit as the others, it will make a twin or full size quilt. This cost $3.95.




Here we have a bag of 2 1/2 inch strips in reds and greens..$3.95, 2 smaller bags of 4 inch squares... 95 cents each and a bag of 8 inch squares $2.95.

Total was $49.00. For me that is a LOT of money to spend, but when I think of all the projects I can get out of this, it works out great. Well...definitely back to the buying moratorium. I think I am set for quite a while! (As if I wasn't set BEFORE I bought all this! lol)

  4. What a great haul. When you see how much you've got for your money $49 is nothing to pay. Plus it's going to a good cause.
