This is what 212 yds of fabric looks like when it's all boxed up and ready to give away to someone who will hopefully appreciate it more than I did! The majority of it is 80s calicos. Mostly in 1/3 to 1 yd cuts but a lot 2 to 3 yd cuts also. And the top box is mostly full of FQs and smaller bits.
There really is some lovely fabric in there. I had it in a HUGE box and it didn't all fit. So I had to put some of it in another box. Then I decided I could get it to the car a whole lot easier if it was all in the smaller boxes. As I transfered fabric I wouldn't even let myself look at it closely. Too afraid I'd start second guessing myself and pull some pieces back out. And remember I did keep a strip of each so I do have bits to use in my scrap quilts.
Someone who likes calicos will love working with this stuff. And it will makes lots of pretty quilts for people who need them. So much better to go for that than sitting forlornly in my cabinets waiting to be noticed amongst my jewel tones and batiks.
