Stash report week 2

ok.... I fell off the wagon for sure this week... but as I mentioned last week, I can't resist a good deal.....
A local craft store is having their annual  flat fold sale this month.....
How does a girl resist fabrics at $3.99 a yard.... or $3.00 a yard... or even $2.00 a yard?  
I can't... I know that.... I tried... believe me... I really did try....

The sale wasn't supposed to start until Wednesday.   But on my way to get groceries, I decided to stop in to see what they had.... and they had started the sale early... no one was in the store... I had access to 2 wonderful clerks to cut my fabric for me.... and I went way overboard.....

Believe it or not... this is 102.5 yards of fabric... all stacked up on the counter so I can pay for it.....
My bill totalled $317.44 !!!!   So I really did stick to fabrics that were a bargain...

These are name brands... PB textiles,  Red Rooster, Hoffman, Robert Kaufman, Timeless Treasures, SouthSea Imports, Michael Miller, etc.  

I got all 10 yards of that yellow with the lime green, turquoise, and brown dots.... It will make great backing and borders.     There are 3 yards in that piece with the wild peace signs... it will be great for a teen or youth quilt... borders... I'm thinking.  

See the multi-colored dots in the center stack... about 2/3 from the top???  There are 8 yards of that between the 2 pieces.... should work for backing on several little quilts. 

I did manage to come home with some tone on tones and blenders....

Now... the sale runs all month.. and they'll get several shipments of new fabrics.. so I may have to go back.... but meanwhile... I need to get these washed and worked into the fabric wall in my stash room.... maybe I'll make a list of colors I could use more of before I go back.... LOL .
