I came home from the final day of Quilter's Heart sale with some thread, 70% off. I don't usually buy Gutermann thread and they have some really nice weird colors that I don't have in my collection. It seems I'm always needing a color a little lighter or darker than what I have on hand so I hope now I have what I need in every situation.
Since I grew up in the era of Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, I have always had a soft spot for cowboy print fabrics. There were 2 yards left on the bolt so it came home with me too.
I really enjoyed all of the comments yesterday and it looks like we have a lot of quilters ready to use their stash. Of course it will create more scraps but I no longer will feel guilty if I don't use them. From now I on I will be sorting them in 3 size groups in the bins that I emptied when I put my fabric out on the shelf units in my basement. Several people already spoke up to purchase my scraps too. This doesn't mean I won't make any scrap quilts, they will just be selected scraps and the rest will go.
