IF THIS POST DOESN'T GET THOSE CREATIVE JUICES GOING, I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL!! (FABRIC GIVEAWAY)

You will have to excuse me because I am going to drop the "F" bomb!

 Because did somebody say FREE?????

Loads of backing fabric..............................FREE!!!
more backing Fabric...........................FREE!!!
Bad picture but too lazy to go back downstairs and do another one....  FREE!!!!
This is about a yard each...   FREE!!!!
Look at all of these panels with their backing fabrics..............FREE!!!!
Fat Quarter size or larger................ FFFFFFFREEEEEEE!!!!!
Sheweee.....did I say FREE??????

I am sorry, that free word may be offensive to some..........

Now keep in mind that I do not need one more piece of fabric but when you have the disease like I do....you just can't help but say bring it on over (blushing as I am saying this).

This gal calls me up, she found out through a friend that I quilt.  She asked if I would like some or all of her fabric since she was just going to take it to Goodwill.

So I am thinking, if she is taking it too Goodwill........I will do the goodwill jester and take it all off her hands.  (I know, you all are thinking what a saint I am)...HA!!

So I have done my good deed for the day!!!

My mother and two sisters went to Marshall's the other day, outside of Little Rock, Arkansas.....it is a wonderful discount fabric place.  As my sister was going, she text  me and said "We are on our way to Marshall's"....wasn't that mean of her?   Rub it in won't ya!!!

Well...Beverly..........who is rubbing now????

Oh yea...oh yea....doing the dance...doing the dance....

So...which leads me to this....I can't just keep all of this to myself....I will put some fabric in a prepaid envelope...just comment and I will chose a winner in a few days.

It is very generous of you to pass along your free stuff. Pls put my name in the hat. And just so you know I love that F bomb (FREE).

Needled Mom said...

I'd say that tops Marshalls any day!! You have definitely one upped them.

Wacky Woman said...

You lucky girl!

Mary said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun with "Free". Free is always good. I did find a partial bolt of fabric at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago. Backing fabric! Have a great day!

Dayna said...

Be careful what you wish for! But isn't it nice that someone would think of you! I Love FREE as then I can make more to give forward.

Tangos Treasures said...

Yes you are a saint!!! Too much fabric?? You supposed to collect lots & lots & more!!

Diann Smith said...

I'm a fabriholic that doesn't want the cure. This looks delicious. Thanks for the chance.

Sarah or Semmy said...

I guess I am the first to comment. The spot no one ever wants. LOL Would love to have some of this fabric for the quilt's backings. I make quilts for the Pregnancy Center. I am about out of backing as I just delivered 9 baby and Crib quilts to them.I love Marshalls and have been there many times. It is a treat for the eyes to see all that fabric. They have an online store but only a small amount of what the store has.

Susan said...

How nice of you to share! I would put it to good use and make a few more quilts for kids going into foster care (our guild's latest outreach project).

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

THANK YOU for rescuing that fabric from the Goodwill bin. Backing fabric is something I am always on the lookout for. Thanks for sharing.

txquilter said...

Wow! What a generous offer. Don't want that poor fabric to go to waste.

ga447 said...

You are an angel and very kind, I will pay for shipping but I love fabric and do not have enough for my charity quilts. In fact, I am having a group of 6th grades come to the nursing home to tie quilts.

Marie said...

Thanks for wanting to share, free is great! You never have enough fabric! Thanks again. Hugs, Marie

Patty said...

Oh sharing is nice. I share with my granddaughter, She is a crafty little gal(11) and loves to sew.

Nothing better than free, Barb! Way to go! I have been blessed with quilting friends sharing their scraps with me. I've gotten some great pieces. Love it that you got to be the Goodwill!

Teresa said...

Love free fabric! Thanks for the opportunity to share it with you! Looks like you scored very well!

Teri said...

I'm going to be a Grandma in August and would love some fabric to make a quilt for the baby. When I sold my house in 2011, I sold/gave away a bunch of fabric and now have fabric withdrawal.

Judy said...

I always like free fabric. Maybe I could add some of it to my always growing stash! :)

Lorene Holbrook said...

oh yeah! waving my hand wildly!!! thanks for the chance....

Tammy said...

I would be more than happy to take some. I am actually doing a charity project that requires fabric. You can take a look here and see if you have anthing you would like to donate from free landfall that came your way. Other wise I am happy for any fabrics that I could use in quilting. Here is the link in reference to my breast cancer awareness project I have taken on http://tammytopsewndesign.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2013-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2014-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=2
. I have been just recetnly been diagnosed with breast cancer and I want to do something in return for all the ladies that work so hard to take care of all of the other women like myself. The ones at that facility anyway...Have a great weekend and enjoy your fabrics.

LJ said...

I heard that the "F" word was dropped around here recently...count me in!!

Teresa F. said...

I love fabric and since I can't afford to buy it getting it for free would be great. Thanks for the chance.

patti said...

Free fabric means sew for a cause, I have a friend with stage 4 breast cancer and I think I'd like to make a quilt for her! (Hope you have a little to spare!)

Frog Quilter said...

Fabric IS ALWAYS WELCOME HERE!!!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Wow, you lucky girl! I would happily help you out and take a bit off of your hands. ;-) Have a great weekend!

~Laurie~ said...

Keep me out of the drawer - just wanted to say OH YEAH!!! Nothing like free fabric for us fabricoholics!

Bev C said...

Hello

I would love to get some free fabric, would pass some of it onto my Mum who is in her 80's and sews for the local Red Cross shop making baby quilts.

Happy days.
Bev.

retdairyqueen said...

Love the good deed you did

quiltsbycheryl said...

A sewing person can never have too much fabric.....did I say NEVER!!!! I say that the one who dies with the most fabric wins!!

Terri in BC said...

Wow, how fortunate are you! I only have one other friend sewing right now, and I've introduced her to quilting so that eliminates my scraps!

KatieQ said...

Free is my favorite word, especially when it is paired with fabric. It's lovely that you are sharing your windfall.

SewCalGal said...

I have never seen fabric at Marshalls. Makes me wonder if the Marshalls in my area is different than yours. Still, good deals are good deals and can help make many quilts. Enjoy!

VickiT said...

OH WOW! How lucky for you. Heck, I would have taken it all too. How sweet you are willing to share with one of us too. Thank you. Do I see strawberry fabric and maybe even a matching checked strawberry fabric too? Those would be such cute fabrics for my 1 yr old Granddaughter for the summer.

QuiltSue said...

That is just so noble of you to save someone a trip to the charity shop!

cottonreel said...

Good things don't always come in small doses ,you have hit a jackpot . congratulations

hetty said...

Lucky you! I would love some of that free stuff. But if you don't want to ship to Canada, I will understand. You have already been so very generous to me.

Mystica said...

I'd love some of that if you can send it so far only!!!

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Love your version of the "F" word. I wouldn't be able to pass up that kind of deal either.

andsewon said...

FREE ..one of my fav words!!! I need to find this Marshalls in Little Rock next time I visit my big brother in AR!

Beezus said...

Oh, my! You are so lucky. I especially love that strawberry print in your first photograph. That alone was worth it!
