A tease and new thrift shop finds

This is all I can show of the red and white mini quilt.  I finished piecing the top this afternoon.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.  Almost all the points survived and the corners match.  I will figure out how to quilt it next weekend.
I went to the doc to have him look at my ear, and he pronounced the infection gone.  On the way home, I stopped to pick up some King Tut thread to quilt the Jacob's Ladder and some small things to get ready for the gift exchange at my guild meeting.  Then I went to the local Goodwill.  I was really excited to find these wonderful things.

Look at all these wonderful shirts!

Intriguing plaids.

Hawaiian prints and a chartreuse plaid.

Look at the reds.

I even found a good sized piece of Grannies Flowers from 1997.  It is going to help create the back for the JL.  I also found a king sized floral on black sheet, a table cloth for our dining table, and cloth napkins.  All in all, a very successful trip.  I was excited to discover that the store had enlarged its linens section.  I will have to keep my eye out there.
Tomorrow, I start my week with Bella.  Until Friday, joyful quilting, everyone.

What a fantastic haul. I am going to go out tomorrow and have another look at our charity shops.

You certainly hit the jackpot this go-round, Miki! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt your JL...

I like you more and more! I love going to thrift shops and am so excited to know someone else who does the same! I kinda like the old fashioned idea of using scraps to quilt. Happy creating!

I do so love the Purple Cow! I never come home empty handed. For cheap!
