Fabric Score from IKEA

So this was a major score in my book. We have an IKEA in Schaumburg here and someone on the internet had written about how they have 100% cotton white bed sheets for $4.50 (full size) that they like to use for quilting. Of course I had to check it out. I only bought one. I want to wash it and see how it comes out after being washed and dried. (I didn't think I needed to post a pic of the sheet ;) Anyway, I checked out their small fabric department and didn't see anything that appealed to me. Lots of large prints and heavier fabrics for curtains and upolstery. So, I decided to check out the baby section to see if they had any cute bedding for cheap over there...... and I found more fabric (see above). Nice quilting weight 100% cotton fabric sold in 3+ yard bundles of $8.99 each. They had about 10-15 different prints...of course, I wanted them all but I controlled myself and only bought 3 bundles. I liked how these 3 were all diferent but in the same color way. They had a few more prints to match these colors that I just might have to go back and get. (BTW....I know the last pic is kinda funky, but I liked how the morning sun was shining on my table.)

Wow what a great find. I've only been to the IKEA store once when it opened last year. Guess I need to check it out again :-)

OMG I LOVE it! I'm at Ikea with the kids all the time (really - we should meet up there sometime) & I've never seen this! I can't believe I missed it. Also, I'm doing the Stashbusters challenge so I can't buy fabric until April 1 - ugh! You can guess where I'll be April 1st!
