Garage Sale Treasures!

I just had to share this treasure trove of fabrics I bought...all for a dollar!  It is all now washed and folded and ready to play with.  There was an attic full of totes, all full of denim, gingham, pillow tucking etc.   Considering the abundance and the price I think I used a great deal of restraint, don't you.  I have been wanting to go to the fabric store and buy a few chunks of gingham so that I could create samples of chicken scratch and pin tucking.  This definitely saves me the trouble and money. 

I had purged my fabric stash so I could have more room and had it boxed up to take for the 'stash dash' at the CQ retreat I will be attending later this week.  I guess I took care of the empty space.  I really can't wait to get started!

Wow... Connie , this is really a great treasure and a brilliant buy.
I see there some very beautiful one in special those kind of wine color. Well I am looking forward to see your samplers of chicken scratch if you will post them and hope you have a great time to the CQ retreat.

happy chicken scratching, I do like gingham but would not dare use it in my patchwork, hard enough getting strips straight so gingham is way beyond me. I am sure you will have a great time at the CQ retreat CQ is still my favourite type of quilting
