Once a year, my local Guild has a Trash to Treasures sale at a meeting to raise funds for the guild. I cleaned out and donated some books and picked up a few things as well. I think this panel will be perfect for one of my grandsons.

Loved the Downton Abbey Fabric!

This is an interesting quilt top made from French General fabrics. I’m not sure if I will quilt it as is or recycle it on some way.

I’ve never tried silk batting and I’m looking forward to trying this out.

They had three tables of ties that were given to the guild. You could take as many as you wanted. Our guild will have a challenge using these ties at our show next year.

Have a great weekend!
