Recently, some random guy contacted one of the members of our guild. His mother, a quilter, had passed away and he didn't know what to do with her fabric. Long story short, my guild friend took everything with the goal of passing it along to guild members and giving anything left over to Charity Sharity, a local organization that takes fabric and craft donations.
"Everything" turned out to be a garage-length wall of boxes stacked chest high. It took several trips for her to get everything in her car and to her basement.
She contacted the members of the guild and scheduled one-on-one appointments to come and shop the stash. (Masks required, social distance, and come in through the basement door.) My turn came after others had already selected what they wanted, and there was still an overwhelming amount of fabric.
There was almost every kind of quilting fabric you could imagine, solids, traditional prints, a few modern prints, lots of blenders including Grunge, Hawaiian-shirt prints, and lots of novelties. This lady had wide-ranging taste. Apparently she also left some UFOs which some of the other members had taken to finish. The patriotic prints and most of the reds and blues went to the guild member who heads up a QOV group.
I spent an hour selecting what I wanted, and came away with a paper grocery sack crammed full and overflowing. My friend chided me for not taking enough.
Once home, I immediately washed it all. Two loads, darks and lights, with color catchers just for good measure. Here's my haul, fresh out of the dryer:
