It's Monday and you know what that normally means.
Back to Work.
Wake up Early.
What a great surprise today!
A co-worker was gifted some sewing/quilting/crafting items
from yet another co-worker.
She didn't need all of it so guess what?!
She asked if I wanted it.
Oh yes, Thank You!!!
There were several items from a large bag of threads,
buttons, piping and rick rack.
Plus four fabrics:
The red and dark green plaids are very wide strips and heavy material.
The other two are regular cottons and one is definitely vintage.
Does anyone remember a KMART fabric center?
This has the original tag.
Maybe it was Kresge or Jupiter?
Cranston Print Works USA
Does anyone know when this may have been sold?
Cranston is still selling fabric. Maybe they can tell me.
My next surprise was from a scrap bag I had purchased
at my local quilt shop when she cleaned out her
back room. Six years of accumulated stuff.
Among other items I had half square triangles!
These were from a BOM that I loved
but was already involved in another. There are several HSTs and
some half rectangles plus bits and pieces of the fabric.
There's another set of coordinating colors that might have been
used on the same BOM but they are whole.
There is even two different sizes of these vege HSTs, 3 inch and 2 inch.
Maybe it was a class because a few still have the Thangles templates attached.
This is going to be fun figuring out what to do with them.
Free on line patters for scraps?
