Stash Building: Dori Discovers eBay!

eBay is a magical place. You can buy anything from memorabilia to cheap electronics. It’s an odd place with a lot going on at all times from bidding to straight buying.

Years ago I discovered eBay as a great place to build my stash. For a decent price, I could buy and collect fabric sets. Fat quarters, pre-cuts, full yards. You name it, they have it. I’ve yet to use much of that fabric but it’s there for me to play with.

Not long after starting our little blog here, I told my mom about eBay and even showed her a little of my stash I had built when I had that nice disposable income. She oohed and aahhed over my pretty fabrics.

Recently, I found out that she had finally took some time to shop eBay and bought a few things herself. And boy did she shop! The joke at my parents’ house is that my dad needn’t check the mail any more because the majority of it is all for my mom!

She picked up two Robert Kaufman towers of fat quarters.

There was also a tower of fat quarters by Riley Blake Designs. I totally see a baby girl quilt in this set!

To go with the fat quarters, she also picked up some pre-cut 5×5 squares of the same patterns. Such cute little monkeys!

Oddly, as she was showing me her last bit of her fabric haul, I felt like I recognized the fabric.

That was when I looked at the salvage edge and saw that it was a Judie Rothermel set for  Marcus Fabrics, a fabric designer I have a WHOLE box of fat quarters from. Without knowing it, she had picked up fabric from the same designer as I had, just in different patterns and colors.

What can I say! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!

      I swear, I may have to give up my homemaker status to fund my fabric/quilting addiction lol!
      Maybe there’s a quilting store looking for an enthusiastic employee nearby…lol!
