Fabulous Fabric & An Unbelievable Deal!

I found a bin of unloved fabric and fell in love with some of it. I got a great deal – two bucks a yard – on the decorator fabric if I bought the entire remains of the role. Here is what I bought:

Then, I dug through my scraps to see what matched.

Then, I started sewing circles and making quilts. I have the first of three ready to be quilted – that’s tomorrow’s project. I wonder if I can sell them? I’ve never sold a quilt before; I’ve always given them to family and friends, or donated them to charities for fund-raising events.

I have three quilt tops ready to go. Inspired by the beautiful blues and turquoises of the Gulf of Mexico they are named Coastal Curls, Surf Circles, and Ripples in the Gulf.

Finished the first of a series of three quilts - this one is named "Surf Circles."

The next project will be from the other fabric I nabbed at two bucks a yard! I wonder what I’ll do with it? Here it is:
