I just can't believe my luck. I have bought several pieces of fabric from the local thrift stores lately and almost everyone has not measured out to the label. Instead of a yard it will be 7/8 of a yard and that makes all the difference when it hasn't even been shrunk yet. So when I picked up this piece of Nile Green the other day, labeled 2 yards I was shocked to see that it measured 102" by 77"!!!! Why that will cover the entire back of my retro trailer quilt and all in one piece! How sweet is that? I truly am shocked, where would a piece of fabric this size have come from? It is a bit to heavy for a sheet. Well, no worries, I am just thrilled to find a perfect match for my retro fabrics and all in one piece, for $3. What a sweet deal.


  1. How awesome is that? Just love the fabrics.

    If you type in 72 hour kit (in computer), it will tell you what you need for 3 days of emergency.
