Lead into temptation

I had good intentions, really. There was an offer of a 20% off coupon at the thrift store I frequent if you brought in two bags to donate. So I clear out some summer clothes I hadn't worn this year and obviously wasn't going to again. Then, just a walk through the fabric section in case there was a little something. Bad idea, there were several somethings. Looks like another quilter hung up her rotary cutter and donated her stash. Good quality fabrics that were too good to leave behind; Moda, Northcott, Pat Sloan for P & B, Wilmington. How could I resist.

Well I did leave some of it behind, the panels (3 of them) were tempting but so far I haven't used any that I've gotten so they were pushed away. Final tally:  6 fabrics, 11 yds, $13 for an agregate of $1.39/yd.  Four florals, one cream toile, one indego (underneath them in the picture).  The plan is to cut 10.5 squares for the back of my Floribunda quilt top and some more stips for the piano key border and maybe with this much floral fabric, I could do another Floribunda.....
