Garage sale Fabric shopping...

Oh wow... The other Saturday I got a call from a fellow quilter, Karen....
There's a garage sale with cheap quilting fabric. Only 15 minutes from home.
I quickly shower, make a few calls, pick up another friend, grab a coffee and set off.
We get to the sale... WOW...
Call another friend... By the time she tirns up here is my shopping pile...
 I have measured, folded & sorted into lengths for easy finding.. 

All measured, folded and sorted. Ready to pack away...

$150 later, 160 metres, 1 polyester quilt, 2 cushion inserts, 1 plastic storage tub and a pile of magazines to flick through... It was amazing. Thanks for thinking of me Karen. I am sure to get a lot of charity and Aussie Hero quilts made from this win...
My other 2 friends also scored a bit too.

Can't believe how much fabric you got at the Garage sale! We don't have these sales in the UK (or I've never seen them) but I know they happen NZ.

Oh, my. This is my fear. If I don't get busy and use my stash this could happen to all of my fabric when I die!
