When I go to the thrift stores I’m always on the look out for lots of crafting supplies.
And by lots I mean many, but I also mean lots as in bunches of one thing.
These are once in a lifetime finds that may never come again, so I very rarely pass them by.
Like this huge lot of buttons that I shared a while back.
And today’s lot that I absolutely had to bring home.
Now here’s what I’m talking about… 3 bags of quilt squares already cut and ready to be turned into whatever inspiration might come in the future.
There are squares in three different sizes… 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch, and so many patterns it’s impossible to count how many.
I’m assuming these were all cut with a rotary cutter, but that’s still a lot of work.
I can appreciate the creative potential that these 2 inch squares have to be used in other ways besides quilting, like decoupage… which I do enjoy doing.
Check out these two 6 inch high piles of 3 inch squares.
Wowza! That’s a lot of squares.
And here’s the 6 inch high pile of 4 inch squares.
Just to show you some of the different patterns of the 4 inch squares, of many.
And that’s just about a quarter of the pile.
Considering how thin the fabric is, that’s a lot of squares. Maybe someday when I have absolutely nothing better to do I might count them.
But then again, probably not. lol.
Hopefully I’ll always have something better to do. 🙂
Like using them in a decoupage project or two or three.
In total I paid $9 for all these squares. Appropriately they were priced at $4 for the 4 inch bag, $3 for the 3 inch bag, and $2 for the 2 inch bag.
Considering I’ve never seen a lot like this ever, and might never again, for me that’s money well spent.
What would you do with them?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
