I love rummage sales. Garage sales are great, but I need more bang for my buck because I don't get to hit the sales very often...so the larger selection and the bag sales are what really draw me in.
What I am wondering of you is...do you ever shop, and buy something knowing it probably won't fit, but that you could use the fabric in a quilt? That is what I thought today of this skirt and shirt. I just loved the Ralph Lauren pin stripe skirt...and thought it would make a great binding...and the shirt is 100% linen and Ive been trying to add some diversity to my stash.
So, do you shop like this too? Does anyone want these items before I cut into them??
And lastely, I bought this pillow case. I love the soft colored quilts I see on Flickr made with vintage sheets...but I'm not sure pillowcases are used as much? This one seems very clean, but who really knows? Any one else collect sheets that can give me any info? This sheet is 50% combed cotton and 50% Kodel Polyester. Is that the right combination that is used for quilting with sheets??
