Best all time vintage fabric find..

We went to an auction on a Wednesday evening..

Hardly anyone there, but tons of stuff..

Just as we were leaving, I went around a corner

and there was the biggest bin of vintage fabric I had ever seen.

It was one of those old factory bins and I put my arm down into

the piles of fabric as far as I could and never reached the bottom!

It weighed over 140 pounds and took up the entire trunk of the car.

Since no one was even around to bid, we won it for a spine tingling bid

of $1.50..yes, 6 quarters.

Inside were 88 different full feedsacks..

8 quilt tops in various stages of completion..

Yardage in 35 prints..Blocks, triangles,

squares and oh, the scraps....!!!!!!!!!!!
