More garage sale goodness!
The feedsacks may have been the find of my lifetime, but the following would probably count as the bargain of my lifetime. I didn't have any idea what I had until I got home.
It started with seeing a box filled with ziplock bags marked "scrap bags - $1.00". My eye was drawn to one motif showing through the plastic, the bicycle in the fabric just below. I threw it in my pile figuring I liked the bike enough to pay a dollar to applique it to something even if there wasn't another thing in the bag of interest to me.
When I got home and opened it up I found plenty of the fabric I'd liked with even more motifs that were hidden by folds.
This was tucked in the bag as well, though I hardly call over a yard of fabric a scrap. There's also a 3 yd cut of vintage blue calico that I've forgotten to photograph.
One by one, these began spilling out - all precut by someone and all appear to be vintage. I imagine someone had a quilt top in mind. These were mostly blues-
While this group had other colors in the mix as well as a few other sizes.
I think I'll honor that original idea and sew them into a quilt as a Christmas present to myself. Not bad for a dollar.
