Yes! I've Thrifted More Fabric...

In case there are others who like fabric (skip this post if you don't!), even half as much as I do, I am sharing some photos of my latest thrifted finds...

I love florals and the print above is a decorator weight cotton which will likely figure into my plans to rejuvenate our sectional sofa.
The above photo shows the latest finds added to my growing collection of vintage sheets/pillowcases.
Put together this photo with the one above it and you see my complete collection of vintage sheets at this time. I'm trying to add more to this stash in order to make a lovely scrappy quilt. Obviously, there will be fabric left from said quilt and you may already know how much I enjoy sewing up scrappy totes - so it's doubtful that any scraps will be left languishing for long.

Hi Katherine, I can't use a needle or thread or a sewing machine, but I still love fabrics, and you can buy things ready made, which in my case is a necessity! A few pieces of your vintage fabric for a moment took me back to the 1970s when I was growing up, my mum used to furnish our home with patterns like that, wallpaper and all! Louise x

Yes, those fabrics really do take me back. I just love them! Can't wait to see the quilt that you create and all the other little goodies that you are sure to make with the scraps. Scrap happy, you are. That top pic of fabric looks a little like the fabric you made that knitting bag out of for me. Looks like you had another good thrifting day out. I wonder if D will post her finds as well??

Beautiful fabrics! I'm a fabric-aholic so I love every pattern I see. Enjoy your great finds.

You know I'm a fabric junky. Love it all, especially all those bright sheet patterns!
