Moda candy bar with Bliss 50% off!!!!!

vintage inspired fabric on sale 80% off!!!!!
I am currently visiting my mum in the Okanagan.  Other than eating too many cherries, we have had a great time hitting thrift stores and quilt shops in her cute little town.  My big bargain of the day has got to be the buy one get one for free Liberty of London fat quarters.  Yep.  I almost fell over.  They were already cheap at $3.50 a fat quarter but the buy one get one for free just about floored me.  I checked at Purl Soho and saw what they sell for there and decided I should go back tomorrow and get the rest of the small basket.  At $90 or so for 12 fat quarters at Purl Soho, I think it is fair to say this was an awesome deal!!!  Or should I say steal!!!!!???

Liberty of London fat quarters!
