The bag was stapled together so I could not see what was inside…. but, I bought it anyway. I knew it was chicken scratch but I had no idea what the design was with it being stapled shut. I started a Chicken Scratch Gallery on Flickr about 2 years ago. I had just purchased a gingham apron a few days ago with a very nice design on it. I also have gingham from a garage sale from a few years ago. The fabric is in a vintage suitcase.
Pink tags were 50 percent off. This bag had a pink tag and was priced $1.99. I thought at least the fabric would encourage me to take out my other fabric and go through it.
When I saw the hearts I have to admit my heart started to beat a little faster!
I hadn’t even opened the block up all the way and I was so pleased! Look at how fantastic this block it. Do I make a quilt out of these? They are nice enough to be made into a quilt.
I was really getting excited because I knew there were more in the bag.
I can’t believe my good fortune.
Could the next one be as beautiful as the first?
Looking at it closer I could not believe how much work someone must have put into making this.
This one has the edges turned over.
I have always wanted to try this.
There’s nothing like red gingham.

I think I scored….big time!
I then found my second Pyrex cup.
The first one a found in the last two weeks.
Now if you would like to stop by for a cup of coffee. We won’t have the same style of cup but they will both be Pyrex!
