Garage Sale Fun

My son and I LOVE to go to local garage sales.  Here's a little something that I found.  There's yardage for quilt backs in this pile!!!  Of course I only found one simple orange.



Quilt magazines 2/$1.  With finds like this I think I will let my subscriptions run out.  Do you get quilt magazines?  I like Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting and Quiltmaker.  What are your favorites?

I've got people STILL asking me for the SKINNY BROCCOLI SALAD recipe....so here it is again. Please don't forget to click on the word "share" below this post so it will end up on your facebook page so you won't lose it.

  1. My favorite quilting magazine is Quiltmaker. I tried Fons and Porter, but decided to cut to just one. I get QM on my IPad.
