  1. Wow on the fabrics! That Winston fabric is what caught my eye on the linky party at Busy Hands – and I’ve never smoked – lol! Have fun planning and playing.

    That is quite a fabric score! It will be fun to see how you incorporate them into new projects. The Winston fabrics is pretty cool!

  3. Nope, have never seen that Winston fabric before! Nor the rolls which at first I thought WERE jelly rolls. Will be watching to see what you and Sue create with all these goodies. I giggled at your 7 and 13 mixup TOTALLY can relate…

  4. Oh wow! I recognize the white with little flowers … in the 2nd picture. I believe it was from the 80s. Have fun sorting, planning and sewing! 🙂

  5. What a quality stash hand-off…wow. I remember when those binding rolls were all the rage. Even if briefly. Saves time and all. I guess that’s fine if you piece quilt tops in similar colorways. But to be given a roll, whatever colorway, I’d find a way to use it up!
    Enjoy your new treasures.

    I would just like to say how very proud I am of you and Sue for jumping in front of that fabric bus and helping that poor quilter in distress…forcing yourselves to take that fabric (and whatever else may come your way) is very very kindhearted and generous of you both. I am certain her mind is a ease now, knowing her precious fabrics will be loved, petted, and eventually put to good use!

    Wow!! You hit the jackpot! Good thing you went on a low fabric diet!! HA, HA.

    Hello Roseanne, These are amazing gifts of such beautiful fabrics for you and Sue to use in your quilt making! I have always treasured the fabrics that were given to me, just as I can tell that you and Sue are. I am wondering if this quilter just does not want to quilt while they are traveling in the RV for whatever reason. I look forward to seeing each one of your projects as you and Sue begin to use these great fabrics, just remember to mention where they came from for individuals like me. LOL. I am waving and waving with big smiles to share today because my Mom is feeling better. Have a fantastic day!!

    Yes, my first thought was binding rolls. I quilted and crazy quilted in our 30 ft. 5th wheel for 5 years, and it can definitely be done easily, depending on the one you buy. One’s husband has to be tolerant of fabric under the step up to the bedroom, threads and silk ribbon pinned into window coverings, and a little extra weight, but I had all that and more for support, and it was easy! =)

    I know one lady who lives full time in a boat, and she quilts. I love seeing her photos of quilts hanging on the side of the boat for photo ops! What a great addition to your stash. I know you will find many places to use all this. I have not seen the Winston fabric, but it reminded me of the cigarette and cigar silkies that crazy quilters used for several generations, and now reprint from photographs for the centers of blocks.

  10. What a fun day! I’ll bet you had fun going through the bags and sorting!

    Years ago I crocheted baskets from fabric which came on rolls.

  12. Shirley Clark says:

    Wow! That’s awesome! I hope you had room to store them all.

    Wow! Lucky you! Cannot wait to see what you do with the Winston fabric! I have never seen any type of cigarette fabric before! I am not a smoker, but this fabric suddenly took me back to my childhood when all the neighborhood kids (including me) would frequently play ‘Cigarette Tag’. Ha, ha!

    What an awesome downsizing! I can’t wait to see what the Winston fabric becomes. LOL! I still try to refer to NASCAR championship as the Winston Cup!

  15. Well, wowza! You have some fun fabric to play with. Winston fabric – who knew? Curious what you will do with that 🙂 I have no idea on the rolls; I’ve never seen anything like that. Happy Friday!

  16. Jayne says:

    What a big score!! I never have seen or ever thought there was cigarette fabric out there! That is so funny! Enjoy your new haul and I’m sure many quilts will be coming from these treasures!

  17. Woo hoo! We all love free fabric. And I think the idea of making Dar something fabric-y for her RV is a lovely gesture.

  18. Wow — you hit the fabric lottery! Happy Friday 🙂

    Lucky, lucky ducky!! I am a little green, haha. OK about the fabric rolls, I am wondering if they could have been from a factory. My DH’s Aunt had worked in one that made bedding and she had rolls, only back then they were polyester cotton.

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
