big quilts for Napa
My daughter and I headed out to GoodWill this morning for their 50% off sale. I found some more funny t shirts and then over to Savers for their 50% off sale. I got a whole bunch of sheets at 50% off. That's a whole lot of nice cotton fabric. King size sheets were $3.50 and twins were $1.50. I picked out boy/men sheets because I have plenty of girly stuff and am always coming up short when it's time to make quilts for boys. I can use them for backing or if there are sport or stains on them, can cut them for tops. It's important to either check the label or feel them to be sure you are getting 100% cotton because many are poly or poly blend (easy in wear and no iron) but 100% cotton is better for quilting. But you can't find less expensive fabric, even in the men's shirt section and I got some really nice stripe fabric and prints, plus tried to pick things that actually went together so I could use it right away and not have to wait until I found stuff in y stash to match because who knows how long that would take. I want to use it up, not just add more to my stash, which I'm really good at!
