I also went to some yard sales and found some nice quilting buys.
Here are bundles of quilting magazines; all different kinds. Some new and some from before I was born! I have yet to go through all of them but I am in the process of keeping the ones I want and tossing the others. I'm marking the quilts I want to make with my post-it flaggers. I got each of these bundles for $1. So, $5 total.

These are fan blocks. The lady had these in a baggie marked $0.50 for all of them! Needless to say, I grabbed them up!

I was so excited to find these wonderful vintage sheets and pillowcases at another sale. I use the sheets for backings for some of my quilts and the pillowcases will most likely get used in a quilt. I got everything you see for $2!

I found these pinwheel blocks in a baggie marked $0.25! Again, I grabbed these up! There were also pieces cut out to make a few more blocks.

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!


  1. WOW! You got some great deals this weekend! I have been couponing to but haven't done that well yet!

  3. Wow! What awesome finds! Don't you wonder about the person who made all those blocks?
