Look What I Bought

I was doing some shopping on ETSY today & bought some fabric.  I'm interested to see how this turns out.  I do buy stuff from ETSY & have some posts I need to write about shops I've bought from....anyways I wanted to buy cotton scraps & vintage scraps today.  I found two different sellers. 

I bought this.  The set is of vintage fabrics has 60 squares..no repeats..in wonderful condition! They all measure approx. 3" square.  When making my hexies these 3" squares will make it easier.  I can't wait until they show up.  I bought it from In The Old Schoolhouse  This looks like a really nice shop LOTS of vintage fabric.  They also carry Fat 1/4's, 1/8's & 1/16's.  Prices & shipping seem really good to me.

I also bought a PIF (pay it forward) Grab Bag.  I'm really looking forward to see what scraps will be in there...lol.  Call me strange.  This one will be like Christmas Morning.  I found this grab bag from Sandi's Stash  Sandi carries fabric, notions, books/kits & has her PIF scraps. 

Has anyone else bought fabric off ETSY?  I soooo can't wait for the fabric to get here.

I've never purchased fabric from Etsy but I have from Joann's. Even if I don't need the fabric, it's so tempting to grab the cute ones.

Oh that fabric is great. I'm trying to hold off on starting a hexagon quilt (because I have so many UFOs) - but it isn't going so well. I'm day dreaming about what I could make!

@ Diana ~ for about like $5 including shipping I couldn't resist. With exchange in my favour it's like the gods were telling me to...lol.

@ colorslut ~ not that i'm trying to enable you, BUT we could always do a scrap swap when I'm done with mine I just send them on to you...lol. If they are big enough that is. I'll email you.
