Spotlight bargain shopping

I recently had an impromptu visit to Spotlight. Of course there was a sale on..
Clearance fabric was 50% off if you bought 3 or more metres. But, if there wasn't that much on the end of blot you got that piece half price too.
My total buy was 23.3 metres for $76..
I'm very happy.

This was a great find.. I was only charged $1.50 for it. Imagine the squares cut up and alternating fabrics added. Maybe some sashings. I think I could get 2 quilts for Aussie Heroes with it. I know it's a Xmas design but it also features cars. Who knows what I'll do with it in the end.

We have Mystery Quilt sewing night coming up. It's a fund raiser for charity.
We need 3 colours . This is the start. I. Not sure if I use a white tone on tone (from stash) or go and buy a piece of green. I'll wait and see what my mood takes me to.

Our group has just got a new book in the library.
It's called "MODERN VIEWS with 3-Yard Quilts" by Donna Robertson.
The quilts in this book only use 3 colours (light, medium & dark) and a yard of each to make the size quilt I need for Aussie Heroes. This fabric will be my first make.

Cream tone on tones are always being used.

A lovely red to add the the Xmas stash.

Always loving a bargain.

Looks fantastic Jo.

You sure did get lots of fabric for only $76.. How would one of the cream tone on tones go with the top two ???
The three fabrics look great for the Modern Quilt.
Just posted the placemats I made using the easy binding method you did.
Hope you don't mind as I linked it to your post...
