As mentioned previously, Mardens (the store hosting the PL Event), gives 3/4 yard for every quilt brought in. It used to be 3 fat quarters, but then when patrons started bringing in big numbers, that got impractical. I left the store with 50 yards of material, 39.75 of which was FREE (and the rest was a mere $3 per yard!)! Earlier this week they got in a wonderful shipment of Carla Miller and Freespirit Anabella. My heart nearly skipped three beats when I saw all of the bolts.
This pile hardly looks like 50 yards, but it is. Most are 1-2 yard pieces, but I did get 3 yards of at least 6 prints for using as backs. And (though not photographed, I got a few yards of wide Kona in white) - not so interesting to show.
...a lovely assortment in the green, aqua & brown colorway.
...And some very luscious kiwi and shades of red. These are SO gorgeous in person.
...And I have a couple of these, but a gal can (should) always have more.
Unfortunately, they only had one of the Kaffe Fasset Foxgloves, which I really like. I'd have loved to have found the blue one. But nonetheless, it goes nicely with some of the Carla Miller prints. I also have a few other Carla Miller ones recently purchased that will coordinate with the new ones. Oh, my creative design juices are moving a mile a minute right now!.....
...and a few yards of rogue prints that did not coordinate much with others i got, but I still liked them.
So, there ya have it - enough fancy, modern & new fabric for at least 6-7 quilts. Enough damage for one day. Image that - 50 yards of top quality (typically $8-9 per yard) for a mere $30! I couldn't be more delighted :-)
