One man’s trash…is another man’s treasure.
Nowhere is this more true than in our circles of quilting friends and acquaintances. My homet0wn guild had a little garage sale at its April meeting. I’ve been looking forward to it since February! A while back I started a garage sale box, and into the box went anything in my sewing area that I wasn’t attached to any more. There was quite a variety.
I feel compelled to add here that the teacher in whose class I started this project is an amazing art quilter who does fabulous work. Her name is Pamela Allen. When she does it, it’s cool. When I tried it wasn’t. I think that just means you can’t speak in someone else’s voice—you have to find your own. This was definitely not Pamela’s fault.
So those were some of my contributions.
But now to the fun part! You have to see what I scored at the quilters’ garage sale!
I’m pretty sure I missed some great stuff because I was busy taking pictures when I should have been shopping. Nevertheless, I found some treasures.
Because, and here comes the best part of all, you won’t believe what I made with these babies over the weekend! It’s a quirky, fun Bonnie Hunter-style quilt top with a boatload of unpredictable fabrics that all tie together in the end. Stay tuned, and maybe it will show up in Quiltmaker next year.
I have started another box of quilters’ garage sale goodies.
Leave me a comment by midnight April 24 telling what your dream find at a quilters’ garage sale would be, and I will pick a winner, who gets the entire contents of my latest box (and I promise there will be some good stuff in there). The winner is comment #33 from wordygirl. I hope she enjoys her “stuff”!
