Two weeks ago, after I lasted posted, I discovered I'd overlooked the fabric I'd bought while at quilt camp in my numbers, so that's included this time.

Solid yellow-tone called "Cornmeal".

One day this past week, I wanted to go to one of my favorite quilt shops in this area so hit my aunt up to go with me, which she did.  I was specifically looking for 1930's repros in florals but ended up with mostly solids instead, also needed. These were all FQs.  I also picked up a few pieces of yardage and some FQs in 1800s repros.  The 1800s prints were a package of 20 at $2.00/FQ.
Solids to go with 1930s repros, a coupld of prints, and 1800s repros.
Three bolt-end yardages and 1930s florals.
Another day, I met with my aunt and cousin for lunch and the cousin was looking for a new sewing machine.  We drove to Boersma's where they gave me another fabric.  Well, they didn't give it to me, but I did buy it there.  And my cousin found a machine to her liking and took it home to play with, paying for it of course.
I bought 2.5 yards of this yellow-tone honeycomb fabric.  Hmmm, I can see a hexie pattern in it.
Then on Friday, we went to Newport, OR for an annual quilt show that we traditionally attend.  
I love this print that graced the cover of the show program.  It's seems to be the logo/theme each year.  I think it has something directly to do with the guild(s) that put on this show and that it is on the coast.  Sailing ships often represent coastal waters and when you combine quilts...hey, works for me!  I'm descendant from Vikings and other Norwegian seafarers!
I found these 1930s floral prints at one vendors...they were a bit pricey I thought but I'd not found as many at Grandma's Attic as I'd hoped for so went ahead and purchased them.  I realize the price of fabric is on a steady increase.
At another vendor I found these, and they were only $2 per FQ - cash.
In the room for consignment sales, I found these fabrics.  They were just over $1/yard.
This is the contents of a $5 grab bag.  It was all stuffed into a 1-gallon zip-bag.  I forget what cause the vendor was supporting, but the fabrics in the grab bags were all donated fabrics / scraps.  I measured and calculated, and this equated to almost seven and one-half (7 1/2) yards.  I think that's a pretty good price to pay to add some variety to ones scraps.  There were some much larger bags set at $25 but I didn't want to have to carry one around - it was heavy.
I know it's Monday, and I'll get to that post, but also wanted to get this update in, even if it's late!
