Where WAS my Sherpa???

I NEEDED A SHERPA TODAY ! to carry my quilty booty::::

It was the annual 'clean-out' sale of the Amador Valley Quilt Guild... I LOVE this guild. They do the greatest stuff...

First they gathered donations from everyone - unwanted fabric, UFO's, blocks, notions, thread, yarn ... some from stores, from other sales, carloads of stuff...





















There were bolts........................................................and bags (I resisted buying scraps - lord knows I already have plenty of those)













There were good panels for $1 each !!

And this great snuggly top, also for ONE BUCK!

It's made of chenille and soft upholstery fabric - it will be fabulous when i get it all quilted. Some senior will love is textural variety...



!!
I ended up with TWO HEAVY cardboard boxes full of fabric!!! yippee





Then later, after resting up from the big purchase, I worked on my tops for the H2H Charity Quilt initiative , run by Judy the Green Fairy of amazing machine quilting...





I finished up this top:















And put binding on this quilt for BOYS !!!















I had a FABULOUS quilty day !!!

Hope you did, too...
