Weekly Stash report

I've never found a full yard of  fabric in the bins at the Goodwill outlet, let alone a full yard of quilt shop stuff, but Teenage Daughter dug out this! It's got devils and skulls and scorpions, and I've got boys, so it came home even though I had no clue what I might do with it. I checked the selvedge and it's Loteria by Alexander Henry. A couple of etsy listings claim that it's rare and out of print... which makes me think that maybe I should think twice about what I wind up doing with it.

All on my own, I found a couple of sheets. One is pretty vintage blue flowers and the other is a solid brown. I know I'll use both, so they joined my stash. I haven't decided whether I'm counting sheets as yardage this year or not, or just keeping a tally of sheets.

If it were me, I would count it as sheets not fabric until I use one. Then I would count it as in and out. That fabric is interesting to say the least.

Very different fabric. I never see any "good" fabric yardage at our thrift store either. I think our Goodwill must not get any in because we have too many quilters in our area that belong to guilds. Sometimes there is a freebee table at these meetings that people get rid of what they don't wont.
