Fabric Surprise

I love when my sister comes to visit… along with the sale of a quilt or a new idea for a unique quilt project; she brings me FABRIC, too. So delightful!!

FAT QUARTER BUNDLE
 

Any quilter loves receiving new fabrics; however, what a cool surprise to receive fabric yardage; and spools of thread from my mother’s stash.  Many of these spools still have the plastic wrapper on them and some even have a price printed on the wrapper.  
 

FABRIC SURPRISE

SPOOLS OF THREAD


THREAD PRICES 
 
 
It's hard to imagine… paying $0.79 for a spool of thread, today. And, back when I was in high school, I also remember a conversation with someone that also made her own clothes; that we could sew a dress for $10.

Then...back to reality! I wonder what I'll dream up for this lovely fabric, now in my own stash. I've already used some of the thread colors in my current project.
