Thrifty Thursday

Cheap Fabric Re-stashing

I went to my favorite Denver fabric store  Wooden Spools last week with a new quilting friend Linda, I needed to re-stock my stash of red black and white fabrics after cutting most of mine up for my queen size Fibonacci WIP. But of course a quilter doesn't go to a $5 per yard revived fabric store and only buy what she needs LOL. I found the red/black/white and some great eye spy fabrics, a lovely fat eighth bundle, some 4" charm squares and 3 fat quarters that I will use in Tula Pink City Sampler blocks. All for about $60:


I am obsessed with eye spy quilts and one way I keep my eye spy fabric collection thrifty is to swap squares and small pieces of fabric with other quilters, this bundle I got from Linda when we swapped last week and it will make heaps of squares when I find the time to cut it all up:


So that is my Thrifty Thursday re-stashing, I love sourcing fabric cheaply it is a real buzz!
