I was at the Sun Prairie Heritage Heritage Quilt Show this past weekend and I wandered into the basement area to find some fabulous vendors! Yeah! I learned about the mystery bags while sitting down and eating with other quilt show attendees. Once I heard what was happening I had to get some mystery bags for myself.
At one of the stops they were offering a fabulous opportunity to increase a persons fabric stash. It was called, “How Daring Are you?” What happened is she had bagged up 10 fat quarters in a brown lunch bag…you chose randomly and for $8 you got 10 mystery fat quarters. The bottoms were marked with letters of similar/same fabrics so you just had to pick different letters and you could get different bags of fabric. Well, at $0.80 a fat quarter I was feeling VERY daring. I chose four bags!
I got one full of florals…I probably wouldn’t have chosen these, but they’re great if I ever need florals.
Anyway, I thought this was a fabulous idea on the vendors part. I am ALWAYS looking for an opportunity to add to my fabric stash and I’m pretty sure that other quilters feel the same way.
