Sunday Stash #4

Today's bit o' stash is brought to you by a forgotten purchase. Sometimes I just love forgetting what I've bought! It's so much fun to rediscover it!

The other day I was looking through my fat qtrs for a project and I came upon this fabric...
I thought I just bought this while at a little sewing thing at a local quilt shop...but all the fat qtrs in that particular set of shelves are older. And so the search began. Turns out I'd never emptied the bag of stuff I'd brought to work on that day...and that's where my new fabric was!

So here's what I got. Mostly 1/4 yards with a few fat quarters.

This particular shop has a red wagon filled with scraps, and they have baggies you can stuff for $3.Look at all the space I had left! I could've fit more in there!
All in all I showed great restraint that day. I didn't have a lot of money to spend, and I didn't go over my budget. Yay me!

$3 for that???? wow that is cheap!
here a fatqurter doesn't cost less than the equivalent of $5...
Thank you for your comment.
May I add you to my blog list?

What a great stash ... and a great price. I haven't started my quilt fabric shopping but you've given me some serious ideas.

wow - that is so cheap for such beautiful fabric. i wish we had that system here - fill a bag for $3!
don't you love finding things though - when you had forgotten about them and then you stumble upon them
happy sewing :)

Nice little stash you have going there. You could start a series called 'forgotten stash' maybe?
I generally have the opposite problem wherein i return home and cant seem to find the tiny little piece that i know i just bought!
Really nice to find you.....:)
