I'm a sucker for a sale

When I came to find fabric for the back of the quilt I have been working on I found I had really gone through my stash of fabrics.  I had to piece lots of bits to get enough fabric for the backing.  Then I got an email saying that East Coast Fabrics were having a sale.  Now that was timely!

Monday is my babysitting day, so once I had dropped the girls off at school I drove directly there.  My goal was to get backing fabric for the next few quilts I need to make. ( Well, I know that all my grand nieces and nephews are lining up for a quilt now that the youngest is getting a new one.)  I was one of the first into the shop.  I got a trolley and loaded up.  I was only going to buy the $4 per metre fabric but I actually bought some at $8 per metre as well.  I was one of the first in the check out line which by this time was getting rather long.

The cheap stuff, 2.5 metres for a single bed backing, cost me $10 per quilt.  (Considering that price would have been at least $50 from a quilt shop I think I did well.)  

I will have to add a little to sides of this one but it will make a great backing.  I don't think I would use it on the front of a quilt though.

And I also bought these at the same price.

I'm still a couple short but I thought I had better finish these first. 

I have bought a couple of overnight bags for my grand daughters for Xmas and I want to put all the bits in there, like pajamas, brush  comb, tooth paste etc.  And I found the perfect fabric for the wet pack.  I intend to line the bag with a waterproof fabric and use a different coloured zip for each girl.  They both love pink, good thing the tooth brushes were a variety of colours.

This nautical themed fabric just jumped out at me and I had to have it.

And I'm not sure why I bought this one.

And finally, I'm sure I will be able to incorporate this fabric into the piece I am planning for the next children's embroidery class in which the embroidery design is all about hands.

Now I have to find somewhere to put all this loot.

I am trying to find somewhere conspicuous to put these purchases so that I will use them.
