Another yardage bargain you should know about

This only applies to a few of you but do a search of Crate and Barrel Outlet Stores. If one is near enough to you, be aware that they carry yardage of the Marimekko fabric on bolts for $3 a yard, 60" wide. It's 100% cotton, a bit heavier and used for curtains and cushions but is wonderful for bright backings and quilting projects. The website doesn't show these bright colors so don't know what they were from. They also have "remnants", pieces from FQ to half yard sizes for 25 cents each. Not sure what I'm going to make but it will be a wild, art quilt I'm sure.

Good old GOOGLE! I found 3 Crate and Barrels in our area. Will check them out on Monday.

Be sure they are an Outlet store, Marge. Regular ones don't have these leftovers.
