Bullseye

I love a bargain, and that store with the red bullseye as its logo is one of my favorites to find them in.  Being a textile lover, the towels and linens section always beckons.  All those yummy textures and colors and prints.  Like an addict needing a fix, I can't resist the fabric in those aisles that stretch from kitchen towels to embroidered pillows, cotton sheets, quilted throws, and even shower curtains.  Yes, shower curtains.  I came home with three of those tonight for the miserly sum of less than $15.00  Check it out:

Won't this make a great quilt backing?

At 72" x 72", that is four yards of nice quality 100% cotton fabric for $3.74. 

This one with the letters was definitely irresistible to me, a WORD girl.  Did I ever mention before that I was on Wheel of Fortune years ago?

Four yards of modern looking printed 100% cotton fabric for $4.24. 

This is the only shower curtain that is actually going to be used for that.

Originally $25, I paid $6.24.  Amazing!   My husband just laughed and shook his head when I told him two would be used for quilting.  You can't take a quilter anywhere without them looking for fabric.  I was even eyeing some flannel shirts on the clearance racks.  Those XXXLs are generous with the yardage...So if you love a fabric bargain, get thee to Target!

No Target, or any chain store, here so I am sometimes bit by the envy bug.

Target isn't close to me it is a day trip out shopping if I go.
When dad was alive one of his favorite places to go was shipping the clearance aisles at Target...thanks for the memory!

I love the place with the red bullseye! We used to have one just down the street when we lived in TX, but now it's an hour drive.

Love your thrifty finds. I would never have thought about shower curtains as potential backing fabric. Way to go!

Wow! I was in Target yesterday and never even thought to go check out the clearance items for quilt potential! I'll just have to make another trip! :)

I love Target, but I never thought about it for rounding out my quilting stash. Better get over there and shop with a fresh eye *s*

We have a Target on the other side of town. I don't need the fabric added to my stash, but I'm really curious whether I'd find such great bargains in our store too. I may just have to check it out.
You're the Queen of Bargain Shopping!

How funny! I never thought of looking in the shower curtains for fabric! lol 'Course, I hate to shop, so that might account for it.

I can just see you on WoF! Did you win big bucks?
